Sometimes I am so, so glad I didn’t go into an MFA program. I would be miserable! At least a Ph.D. is “job training,” and it’s clear (not crystal clear, but ever clearer) to me the separation between my job and my passion. (I wish they could be more intertwined but for now, at least, they aren’t).
Kristy recently made this, which I bought immediately because it is super-awesome. Take that, MFA program.
