They get to snog hot people ;) they get to be dramatic and have fun, paid well and work beside some amazing actors and actresses --- Of course there is the downside of being famous and never being left alone.... But I reckon it's a price worth paying for that line of work ^_^
What is it about acting that pulled you toward that as a career?
I myself am not in collage or high school, but I am going to be training to be a mechanic :D I actally go to the garage on Tuesday to check the place out! Being a mechanic isn't my first choice in a career, if I'm going to be honest I'd love to do what you're aiming for: Acting ^_^ I wanted to be either a Police woman, A nightclub owner or an Actress, but none of those were realisic for me, so the next best thing was Mechanics :D
Cara Lorenzo wrote:It sounds like you're headed down a more artistic lane, Ella. As from my own experience (I currently take Psychology as one of my three subjects at college), Psychology has often been taken as the 'Science amongst the Arts'. It's actually surprisingly scientific. I once intended to take it, but quickly lost interest once I actually started learning it in college and realized just how scientific it is. Of course, this is just my opinion, and it may have to do with the fact that A-Levels' Psychology syllabus may just be significantly different and more bland than the sort one might major in at a university. But yeah, it might be useful to take that into consideration especially if you're not a Science person. :]

Ella wrote:[...] From what I've told by my college advisers, there are two different types of Psych that I can major in: one that's entirely scientific, like you described, and one that is more focused on 'social ecology' which is relating to how people interact in the environments they're in. It's interesting that it's called the science amongst the Arts, though, I've never heard that before.

It took me a couple of years to figure that out, though. When I was in high school, I wanted to go into accounting. When I graduated, I was all about being in music, and I went to university as a first year piano major, planning to go into music education. After a semester of that, I changed my mind to English, and spent my second semester of my first year as an English major. My minor has switched from music to history to psychology to business, and back to psychology.
Once I graduate, I'm considering education, but I'm also thinking of continuing on into masters and doctorate studies in English, focusing on contemporary literature, possibly even speculative fiction
Cara Lorenzo wrote:The 'social ecology' one seems more towards sociology, which would probably be more towards my interest as well. Honestly, you don't want to take A-Levels Psychology. It's case study after case study loaded full of stuff like 'classical/operant conditioning', 'introspection', 'quantitative/qualitative methods', and .. oh God, the 'variables'. It boggles the brain so much I want to burn it all at the stakes screaming at Ivan Pavlov that I really don't care if getting a dog to drool at the sound of a bell is illustration of the behaviourist, humanist, or cognitivist theory. XD

That doesn't get the greatest responses.
NO, I am not an actor. I do mostly sound design and technologies of the arts. I also have almost completed an art minor. I also LOVE building stuffs in the scenic studio and MacGuyvering my way out of (into?) any situation. :3
Hopefully, I can do theatre work in my future -- but probably not on a large scale. Maybe in the community, or at a college. I want to go to Grad School for Theatre - Sound Design or Technology of the Arts. Very excited though, I love what I do!
