off to art school

Off to art where I am sure beauty will be created by your hands. How can I know? I know you have a beautiful soul.

You will find friends where you never expected, so be open and smile.

You will find challenges that push you beyond what you think are your limits, but don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you are sincere and put in the effort they will help. They want you to succeed.

Every instructor can teach you something, even if it is just how to avoid acting as they do and be an ass. Find what they have to share and take it.

Don’t fret over perfection, let your effort be honest and sincere.

Time is your most important asset. Use it wisely. Budget it so you get work done ahead of deadlines, and always budget time for fun.

Food is fuel, put good fuel and vitamins in your body. This is more important than you know.

Exercise, pray and meditate daily.

Trust your heart, but only after common sense.

and always, always remember…. Dad Loves Megan

Dad Loves Megan

PS — live poor because you are poor!
