- Vancouver, British Columbia -
I am an artist. I paint and I love it more than anything else in the world. I love capturing landscapes and everyday human interactions. The problem is that my mother wants me to go to university, not for art, but to become a lawyer. This is the last thing I want to do. I hate confrontation. Which is why I don't know how to tell her that I can't. She's a single mother, but is still willing to pay my way through university. How she will, I don't know, but I feel like she thinks I am her one chance to move up in the world. What should I do?
Sincerely, A Conflicted and Tortured Artist"
