Create-A-Day: Big Ol’ Flop
March 21, 2012 § 1 Comment
The closing reception was today for the show that was a total nightmare to produce. No one came to the reception. Well, that’s not totally true. Three of the artists came. Two other MA students came (only one from my year and she’s my closest friend in the program). My boyfriend came. Two Art History professors came (one of them is my favorite professor, though, so I am really glad he came!). Two fine arts professors came. And I think two random students I don’t know came.
Pitiful faculty turnout. Pitiful graduate student turnout. And the cherry on top is that the gallery’s faculty advisor didn’t even bother to show up. Seriously?!
So I’m pissed as hell. Obviously. I work so fucking hard for this stupid gallery and no one gives a shit about it, not even the faculty. The worst part is I shouldn’t even care because I’m leaving! But I can’t help but care, just like I can’t help but do a good job at everything I commit myself to (or obligate myself to). No one from work came either, but I guess I shouldn’t have expected them to.
At least I looked cute. I wore my favorite oxford pumps (and my only pair of brown heels that aren’t boots), a Forever 21 lacy top, my grey H&M blazer, and a pink Forever 21 skirt. My god I’m cheap. Anyway, had anyone showed up, they would have seen that I looked cute.
Honestly, I just don’t know why I even bother. OR WHY I CARE when NO ONE ELSE DOES. Deep breaths. Deep breaths. Sigh. GW is such a fucking joke sometimes. I can’t wait to get to PhD where the students and faculty will actually care. Someday.
