Day #7 Response: Lola Ogbara

I love to engage in artistic activities such as painting, photography, drawing, etc. Although these activities are fun for me, they don’t have the same affect on my family. It seems to draw me away from my family. Being that I am an artistic individual and very interested in the arts, no one in my family engages in such activity. I feel like I’m alone in the activities that we participate in as a family because no one shares the same feelings as me about art. They would all think it is just nice or cute but that’s as far as it goes.

            As far as friends go, I pick them wisely. Because that, I feel as though my friends and I are on the same page as far as activities we engage in and what we like to do for fun. We are all on the same level, sort of like a “creative posse”. We all share the same artistic views and intellectual innovation. 

            Even though loving to engage in arts draws me away from family, I don’t see myself stopping. In fact, I would engage in these activities more and try to perfect my skill in the arts.  Hopefully in the future my family would be more interested in what I do. Even though they are not as interested in art like me, they still support me more than I can ever ask for.

  1. I have the exact same problem in my household. Everyone thinks that its cute that I want to sing but nobody takes me seriously. Nobody thinks I will follow through with it because I've always been so shy around them. The only way they will believe me is if I so them and thats exactly what I plan to do!!!!
