Putting a Frame Around the Art Institute

I think that it's really too bad that we can't look into the future and see our mistakes before we commit them. Of course, it is possible that some of us wouldn't change anything because a person may end up on an even better path than where he started out, even when things go wrong.

However, we only have one chance at this life we live, and we can't always make the best decisions as we go through life. In my opinion, going to the Art Institute for my education was one of the best and worst things I ever did.

After I graduated from high school, I decided to go to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for Music and Video Business. I didn't have any regrets at that time because it was a great course and I had a lot of fun there.

However, many of my relatives warned me that I wasn't making the best decision about my future. Of course, I did not listen to all their warnings. All I could think about was getting away from my stepfather and having a good time with my freedom. I like the idea of going into the Art Institute because it was just far enough away from home, and it promised to be a lot of fun.

It would be unjust to blame the Art Institute, but I can say they had a lot of problems. For example, the school authorities really didn't care when I had a complaint. They were not the least bit interested in helping me get back all that I lost out on some classes when they restructured their program.

I observed that the Art Institute is most definitely a profit oriented school, and I knew they didn't care as much because they already had my money. The only thing I got out of my education were some life lessons. The biggest lessoned I learned was that women have to fight ten times as hard to get involved in what I wanted to do. I also discovered that I was apparently not strong enough to fight.

The good thing about my experience was that I meet my husband at the Art Institute. I often joke that my tuition paid for him because I got nothing else out of it. I always thought I would be single for a long time because I wanted to be able to do what I wanted with my life without having to think about someone else. I guess I was just as wrong about that as I was about the Art Institute. The path I chose led me to where I am right now, and I wouldn't trade that for anything else in the world.
