So I'm still just hanging out here in my dorm room. I was thinking of other things that they wanted to talk about. Another thing I thought of that I've had a problem with in the past, for sure as well as a lot of my friends and other people go to school at that. I just talked to you about it is the fact people not taking you seriously when you say you go to the Fashion Institute of Technology because it's a fashion school? Yeah, I have definitely had my fair share of people saying fashion. Is that a thing? Um, I don't think people realize that A the fashion industry is a booming industry, and it has so much like potential. Also just because you go Teo if I t doesn't necessarily mean you need to go into the fashion industry. I know people who are interesting going into, like the fitness industry or food industry or, like advertising or marketing for some other interests, stain like industry that they like or even like. There's toy design, even go into the toy industry. There's so many different things that you could do from F I t that people don't realize because most the time people here f I t fashion it's too. They think you're going here to design clothes, and that's what you want, Teo. There are a lot of design, Major's, and they are amazingly talented. Just because you go here doesn't mean you're a designer and it doesn't mean that you're necessarily going into the fashion industry. If you are, that is great because that's what I'm interested, interested in two. There's so much potential in that industry that people don't realize. I think it's just something that you can't let people hold you back. Just because they don't understand doesn't mean that you should let her get to you. Just take it with a grain of salt and, you know, one day they'll realize when you have a job and they're like, That's not what I thought you were doing. And if people say D'oh oh, I hope one day I'll be wearing your clothes and you're coming here for, like, advertising. Just say yeah, maybe one day, because I get that all the time. Yeah, just something I thought I'd mentioned because I dealt with it and a lot of other people dio and it can get annoying, but just don't let it get to you.
