During my years in high school I strive to be a very talented artist; only reason was because I was very good at art and wasn't good at anything else. I considered taking it up as a career even though back then in my middle school years I looked at as a hobby when I was bored or lonely, I didn't think my artistic ability was anything special because the people who dwelled in it, didn't make a lot of money, so I was made fun of by my brothers as the only sibling without any talent.
