3 steps forwards

I went to an event held by a school I used to attend. It was a portfolio evalutation for students who were about to leave. When I got there, everyone was just standing around, so I was like "I gotta get this thing started!" I walked around nosying through people's work being all intrustive and whatnot. Eventually everyone began to loosen up and a feeling of accomplishment overcame me.

The opportunity came for me to talk to some students I met just before I graduated. Most of them wereguys but there was this one female named Victoria whom I found myself eerily attracted to. While I was a student I always noticed her but I never actually talked to her until just last night. She was shy, adorable, sexy and classy (well, last night, anyway). I couldn't figure out why my eyes kept moving towards her rack, and then I remembered when she used to wear low-cut blouses. Now that I think about it, she also came to school in mini-skirts every so often, which she looked totally hot in. She was tall, too..... Maybe I should have made a move, but I was in too much of a friendly mood to think about it.

We talked about a favorite teacher of ours: about how attending his classes was one of the few rewarding experiences that most of the students got, and about how his business exploded so much that he couldn't teach anymore. He was definitely a stallwart—he had worked at that school until 2 months ago (around the middle of September). The conversation lasted for about 10 minutes and then she started acting like a Virgo so I went to look at some other portfolios.

One guy was a tall oaf. I shouldn't make fun of him but he was a bit "honest." His portfolio consisted of business software hardcopies, collages of video game characters, and collages of action movie heroes. Another guy was a bit older, maybe in his 50's. He worked all his life as a flourist and then he says that the floral industry was usurped by Martha Stewart, so now he's switching careers. His work was just as mediocre as everyone else's, so I figure that everyone something to tell.

I walked around talking to a few more people but I tried not to pry too much into each person's life story. Instead, I chose ask the artists about their technique—which most of them didn't have much to say about. I quickly became discouraged and I just grabbed a soda and hors d'oeuvres and kept walking around. Eventually I met up with two talented grafitti artists, but no one who showed a general passion for art or even at least graphic design.

As I left, I realized that the teacher I had talked about earlier came to see how the glory days at that school were long gone.

Our company is looking to negotiate a deal for a rap artist to collaborate with Kanye West. We are also looking to work with Redman.

The legal team is looking to negotiate a contract with a writer who was just released from prison. He was about to join a platinum-record rap group in the early 90's, but in addition to being arrested and convicted, he sustained an injury which left him paraplegic. He wants to sell a story he wrote while incarcerated to Marvel Comics. Let's see how that comes up !
