That moment when you tell someone whose major is Mathematics (or anyone in the STEM field for that matter) that you’re an Interior Design major and you get the “Ahh… So you suck at math” look. And the follow up question, “Well I think you probably won’t be able to handle Computer Science because it’s really difficult… I mean, you’re in Interior Design. You must be more artistic…”.
Yes. He said all that. I’m wearing my pi shirt today. Why would I wear a pi shirt if I’m not the least bit interested in math? I was also a science student for 5 years in high school.
Besides, why does being artistic suddenly make you dumb in anything technical or sciencey??
I am both artistic AND technically inclined! Otherwise, how can I study a program that focuses on the technical aspect of design like drafting, lighting theory, architectural presentation, AutoCAD and the like?
The ignorance that people who are artistic can’t possibly be good at math needs to end.
Just like the stigma against mental illnesses and people who suffer from it! #IAmStigmaFree
That last bit there has nothing to do with my post today but I just attended “Shattering the Stigma” workshop in school today so I wanted to just mention that quickly.
