Considering that I spent most of the day traveling to and from Chicago (for a field trip to the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art), I had plenty of time in the van. So I worked on my novella “Ralphie Tastes Like Mango” and doodled. I felt productive, although describing what I did hardly sounds like anything. Right now I am working on my VCU Arts portfolio because I may be transferring. I have four out of the sixteen pieces I will submit but I have until May 1. I SHALL OVERCOME! Hopefully I will hear back from Natasha, the woman at La Escuela Bolivia who I emailed about the arts festival, soon. Of course, tomorrow is Sunday so I don’t expect a reply until the start of the business week.
