    alot of you are gonna argue with me but i dont really give a fuck

    recently because of graff i lost my job, my girlfriend broke up with me, im failing out of school and im getting kicked out of my house.

    i still havent stoped compleatly, but i think it might be time to take a break
    at least untill i get my life back on track

    just post any thoughts of quiting here

    (i figure if someone can make a thread about fire extinguishers, then i can make one about this)

    how could you lose your job over graffiti?
    there had to be something else that you did wrong.
    girlfriends? who cares. not important
    and school?
    do your damn homework and show up, and dont do tags at school.
    then you will be fine

    Thats something you have to decide on your own,

    your girlfriend, well is she really that good of a mate if she dosent accept you for you?
    i know i wouldnt be with someone that thought lesser of me becuase of my graff

    um your parents kicking you out, well i dont know man, i highly doubt they will, depending your age, but perants are weird....

    but yeah i preatty much gave up drugs and just being a lil fuckup, but i wont give up graff, ive told my perants that, and that if im not out doing graffiti, i am going to be using drugs... now they they try to look away...

    just tell them, whats so wrong with it, i put paint on top of paint

    there going to hit you with the its illeagle and its not your property,

    just tell her its the only way you feel your being yourself, and are happy, without it you may start doing drugs, tell her you dont paint churches, houses, or independent things like that, that she dosent have to worry about you falling off a highway sign becuase your not that hardcore...

    Do you tag in class?
    Instead of doing what you're supposed to be doing?
    Cause that can sure as hell be your school problem.

    you dont have to paint every the ones before you have work, and school isn't that hard, if you have to just cheat, and for the girlfriend part, whatever man, she sounds like she has to be a bitch, that is unless you tagged her house or some stupid shit like that

    Get a new job and don't screw up this time. As it has been said you don't have to go painting every night and it's ok to put graff on hold if you get to a week or something of school that is just rediculously time consuming stop with the graff and concentrate on school. With your girl...Fuck her. If she doesn't accept you for being a writer go find some girl that does. As for getting kicked out of your house. If you're a senior then you're 17-18 and you should be going off to college or movin out of your home soon anyways. Don't quit though. If you have to just stop painting. Sketch for a while or do legal walls or do something so that you aren't doing illeagle shit and just get your life back together as you said. Just my advice.

    find another job, do your homework, talk to your parents and bomb that girls house.

    problems solved

    seriously though, its your choice ultimately. whatever makes you happiest right? you do graff cause you love it, but if its causing you so much grief, is it really going to make you that happy to keep going with it right now?

    i dunno, a couple years ago about early 90's or so i would say drop school dude and get a GED, but now fuck the world is colder than ever and most good paying jobs usually want you to have some college experience. Im in highschool as well and lately the same shit is hapening to me thats hapening to you,but i highly suggest you work on school first man, just sketch in your spare time, school is probably the most important thing at the time dude.

    dang yo, thats a bad situation, yah i think taking a brake and just drawing sometimes would be good, get the education, like do something nice for your parents to make them little mroe happy, and i dunno bout the girl thing. But i hope shit goes better holmes.
