You know you go to Parsons when: (these are the ones i relate to)
Nobody stands out, because everybody stands out.
Even the janitors wear skinny jeans
You go to Utrecht (the art supplies store) at least 3 times a week.
People automatically assume youre going into fashion..because they don't know Parsons does anything else.
You've walked up 9 flights of stairs carrying a toolbox and or portfolio that weighs more than you
You've been uncomfortably close to atlast 10 people at a time in the elevator.
You're not fat...because parsons doesn't accept fat people. That's actually a good thing because you have to wait long enought to squeeze into an elevator in the first place.
You have cut yourself at least once with wire, olfa, exacto, or maybe even bristol board.
If you commute to school...too bad..because teachers don't have sympathy at the New School. The only school where attendance absolutely matters & you get kicked out for being absent 3 times (even when you're in grad school)
Over 70% of the student population is female...the rest mostly gay...and very few lesbians...that's a lot of unhappy women..which is why they keep 'em so busy.
Your room looks like Utrecht vomited.
If you registration starts at 8 am, all the classes you want will be full by 8:15, and your schedule won't work. Oh, you want core classes? Too bad.
I merchandise by day. I consume fashion & beauty by night. I live to eat/shop/travel. I'm Bi-Coastal. Shoes are my biggest weakness as are puppies & ponies. I never say no to Love & a good bowl of Laksa.
