• My friend is angry that I got into same art show as her? I don't know what I did?

    One of my best friends and I have art in common. We both love and it we're both very good at it. She's a bit older than me, and she has a bachelor's in art. I never got to finish high school, so, I've just been working very hard since I left school on my school seven years ago. I'm self taught.... show more
    One of my best friends and I have art in common. We both love and it we're both very good at it. She's a bit older than me, and she has a bachelor's in art. I never got to finish high school, so, I've just been working very hard since I left school on my school seven years ago. I'm self taught. We both applied to present our work at one of the biggest art shows in thr state. And by biggest, I mean popular. They select only a couple dozen people to be in it a year. She had a hard time getting in because, I think, they already had a lot of submissions using the same style. But they got back to me in just a few hours and loved it. Ive never been in an art show, or made much money from it so I'm really excited! I told her I accepted right away expecting she got the same email because she's done a million of these things everywhere. She said "Well, I guess that's good for you, isn't it? I don't need your amateurish art cluttering mine, anyway." She said a few other things like that. I don't know what I did wrong or why she's so mad at me... Days later she got in because someone dropped out and she still won't talk to me. What should I do?

  • Can a hobby be considered art? Why or why not?

    Best answer: tap dancing is a type of dance. That would fall under the performing arts category, therefore it is an art

  • Why do people in Humanities think they know more than someone in STEM?

    I'm an engineer with a masters in Math. I'm a Christian. As an expert in Math, I recognize the impossibility of the evolution theory. I believe in the biblical Genesis.

    I'm an engineer with a masters in Math. I'm a Christian. As an expert in Math, I recognize the impossibility of the evolution theory. I believe in the biblical Genesis. Sometimes, I have conversations with people who have evolution as their religion. They actually believe we came from monkeys. The thing I find interesting is that most of these people have a degree in Psychology, Teaching, Arts, or Communications. These people often resort to saying that they are correct because they are college educated. Why would people in Humanities think they know more about science than someone in STEM?

  • Is my writing good?

    Best answer: Not bad but the phrasing and adjectives could be better, and it could be simplified. Example: The chair’s soft leather comfortably sank [not sunk] under my weight as I sat down, but the man facing me made it unbearable. Solemnly, lips pulled in a tight, grim line, he slowly paced back and forth for what felt like... show more
    Best answer: Not bad but the phrasing and adjectives could be better, and it could be simplified. Example:

    The chair’s soft leather comfortably sank [not sunk] under my weight as I sat down, but the man facing me made it unbearable. Solemnly, lips pulled in a tight, grim line, he slowly paced back and forth for what felt like an eternity. He was gray-haired [spelling] and at a distance appeared middle aged to the casual observer, but in the confines of his small office I could see a finely wrinkled face that suggested he was older. Suddenly he stopped and swung around, anxiously looking down at me with a deeply furrowed brow.

    “Why?” he rasped (or growled, or shrieked, etc), as his knobby (or thick, or skeletal, or bony, etc) fingers ran roughly through his thinning hair .

    I said nothing and just sat frozen - overwhelmed with horror, shame and self-disgust. What in God’s name had driven me to participate in an act of such obscenity? I could not yet articulate my reasons, but I suddenly realized that the repercussions had come swiftly.

    “Damn-it, Matheson, I asked why?!” he yelled, no longer controlling his temper. His fist slammed down on the small mahogany table with such force that it nearly knocked over a heavy glass pitcher of water.

    This thunderous outburst was unexpected from someone who had always seemed calm and even-tempered before. As if this thought had drifted from my mind to his, he suddenly composed his face, straightened his tie, sat down and took a deep breath. With a slight tremble he poured himself a glass of water and sipped it quietly, giving me a chance to organize my thoughts before I spoke.

    My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year but when I began to bring him around, my parents got extremely mad that I was dating him. I m 18 & he s 22, they think the age difference is a problem. However, my parents have the same age differnce as my boyfriend and I. Age is not a problem. We are partners at work and have worked closely for a while. We also have a lot in common. After my parents met him, I confronted them that I was seeing him, they told me to find someone more attractive. My mom said that if I was dating someone she d hope they re much better looking than him. My dad continues to make jokes about him calling him Freddie Krueger and stating that he is soo ugly. I love my boyfriend a lot and he was such a gentleman when he came to my house with my parents. There is no reason for them to not like him. I am very attracted to my boyfriend and so are other people. I am so hurt from this. He is no longer welcomed in my house because my parents think he is ugly. I m not sure what to do.

    I believe that no, there is no such thing as an original idea. Everything you've ever seen, read, or heard about was based off of or inspired by something. Whether it be legends, myths, locations, ancient cultures, current cultures, or people, it was based off of SOMETHING that existed beforehand. In my opinion, there are no original ideas because what was used existed at one point in some shape or form. Even if it's modified slightly, it's still based off of something.
