    My Very Own Art Gallery Showing – Help!

    “I would love to showcase your work at my gallery!” “Huh?!” The words moved around on my screen, the room got dizzy, and I remembered to breathe. Someone wants to showcase *my* work? Never before have I heard the words, evocative and relatable, said to des...

    All Business in Chicago

    Have you ever been drawn to a city before? I don’t quite understand it but I feel like I’m torn in a million different directions due to it. I don’t like big cities. I like my quaint, you can get everywhere in Austin in 20 minutes (without traffic) sized c...
