“First, I apologize for hammering the point.”

No worries!

“So, it would be weird for me to hope it will be called high art, when I deliberately aimed beneath it.”

Ah, I see how this relates to the topic. And I get what you’re saying there.

“That all said, I went to art school for the advertising degree, and then I realized I hate advertising. Politics was just something I was interested in from when I was a boy.”

Man, if I had a nickel for all the people I’ve known who majored in subjects they ended up disliking…

I really wish universities were more tolerant of students who take a year off after high school to figure out what they want to do with their lives. I feel like a lot of people, myself included, would have benefited from having that time to really think hard about what kind of career they want for themselves.

But so I’ve added your book to my Amazon wishlist. I’ll be sure to pick it up and give it read as soon as I’m able. Looking forward to it! :)
