Week 6 Short story


Carmena Correa


CSULB School of art

There once was a 12 year old boy. He was interesting. And I say interesting because he was obsessed with memes. He thought about them all the time, he drew them all the time and he just couldn’t stop. When he was in class, at home, eating dinner, he even dreamt about memes. The funny thing is, even if you asked him what he wanted to be when he was older, he would have said he wanted to make memes. The boy was obsessed and his family and friends were starting to worry. Suddenly he was shutting them out and only going to school for attendance credit. He was never learning. Obsession is something that is hard to break. People get so hooked on routine and he was becoming obsessed with his own routine. Little did he notice that the people he loved were slowly leaving him. He wanted to do better so he got to work. He started making memes a hobby, not his whole life. He worked hard and started to notice that he was going to have a future as an artist. Now, we fast forward and realize that he used his obsession for memes to create an exhibit. And this is how the art came to be.
