Never Have I Ever

I have never had a graduation of any kind. Not once.

How did this happen? I tested out of high school a year and a half early. I had to leave art school for financial reasons. I left my technical fashion school a few terms early so I could go to Central Saint Martins, which I then left after a year because it was a joke of a school.

So I've never gotten a piece of paper neatly framed or tied with ribbon, and never worn that silly cap. And although I hope to someday get my Masters in footwear at Polimoda or the RCA, I will probably never get my Bachelors.

I guess I just don't like to do things the normal way. When there is a straight and narrow path, I always pass that up for the spiraling path with lots of hills and valleys. What can I say? I just like the scenic route.

I had a graduation from primary school at one point when I was like 12? Nothing too fancy. Just a gold ring to say you can speak Irish real goodly. :)

Otherwise I've been just as contrary. I think the scenic route is the much more interesting option. I doubt I'll attend college, but fuck it, I'll pretend in the back of taxis.
