Neurobiology Vs. Art school- indecision 2012
All my life I have been a science junkie. From about grade 3 on I have been a science wizard (not to toot my own horn) but I just get science. All my life I have also struggled with depression and anxiety as well as an eating disorder (bulimia) since age 10. This sparked my interest in the biology of the brain, especially in abnormal cases. I’ve taken many science classes and excelled in them, but always struggled with my mental health. The only thing that has gotten me through is artwork. I love 2d media- acrylics, photography- macro and landscape, and lampwork glass. My passion has become the only thing I can do, as my depression has gotten worse. The best part is, Art is a challenge for me and I love it.
So, I’m thinking of switching my life long dream of being a Neuro-science professor, and going to art school. I would love to be a professor of art one day. The idea of teaching others + experimenting with your own studies as part of your job is delightful. I know I want to be a professor, but the question is- a professor of what? Art or Neurobiology?
What are your thoughts?
and how would I go about switching schools? I would like to attend The Kansas City Art Institute.

left work one hour into my shift. Now I’m guilty. Which is causing anxiety. Oh, the cycle.
