    Wow, I’m really flattered to be your only WordPress reblog! Thanks for reading, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I just read through some of your stuff, and like it a lot. I could not possibly be more bummed to be in Chicago right now and unable to go to the Guerrilla Girls event.

That’s disappointing that you can’t go to the Guerrilla Girls event, but Chicago’s a great city for art, they hopefully have reason to return in the future. I contacted pretty much everyone I know in Chicago trying to get them to go!

      I also read some of your other blogs, it’s so cool that you were an intern at the art institute! I hope that you get a great job at the art nonprofit of your dreams 😀
