What am I doing?

Two weeks ago, it was the start of a new semester, or term, or what other words you have a favorable preference for the new start of school. A whole term for everybody to stress out about, and attempt to succeed to a certain degree. Why am I talking about school and stress?

Currently, I am at my school typing this writing piece in order to get a decent grade. This first post is supposed to be about my defintion of art. It's an assignment. -insert sigh here- She wanted us to create a standard, professional art blog that should provide a personality for various of reasons, like reaching a broader audience to show my art, to create an online art portfoilo, to know another weirdo on the interwebs, etc. I would have to admit, that I like the fact she tries new ideas, and projects to provide a better understand of what this course is all about- visual arts, and how you can apply your artistic skills in the 'real world'.

I have one problem- I'm an artist, and yet I can not easily define art (This what stresses me, to the point of hair loss on the crown of my head *rips hair out*.) How am I supposed to define a word that contains more meanings, then I can considered, to a simple statement? There are geishas, muscians, painters, authors, chefs, film directors, dancers, visual art, craftsmanship, video games, music, literature, dedicated liars, etc. Many people think art is just visual arts, and others think different mediums are art. I would consider the two groups mentioned above as their beliefs are both right.

You can not just say art is all visual- or maybe it is, but I believe art is so much more then that.
