Art History

Since I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History with Dramatic Arts minor, I just come up with a great idea! I can blog about different artists, art historic eras, etc. I will not limit myself to just explaining the history of the visual arts. I want to discuss topics in drama, music, literature, etc. Coming to you very soon.

Expanding My Horizons

As you already know, I'm a freelance writer. But want to expand my horizons when it comes to my writing. I mean I do write poetry. But I want write books of different genres, novels different genres, scripts for plays , scripts for the screen, articles for different websites, etc. I do not want to be a one trick pony when it comes to my craft. I could help people with their resumes and cover letters. I want to critique, format and edit other people's literary works. Here my profile for elance.com: http://veronica_e_adams.elance.com. I'm also a freelance writer on odesk.com as well. If you need my help, let me know. Freelance writing is one of the things I can do with my degree. My poetic works will be featured on this blog.

Have we not learned anything at all?!

I thought we moved beyond the one-drop rule. I thought we moved beyond the paper bag test. I thought we moved beyond having combs at the doors of a church. #teamlightskin #teamdarkskin Don’t you realize that this was a system used to divide, conquer and destroy an entire people? It’s bad enough when other people judge us by the tints and shades of our skin
But, it even worse we do it to ourselves.

I've Been Thinking

Lately. I have been doing a lot of thinking. Maybe it's time for me to move out of Conyers, Georgia and live on my own. Even though I have been living for five months, I feel limited and stifled. I think that Atlanta, Georgia might have more opportunity for me. There are some places in the community that can help me out with obtaining employment, housing, financial assistance, food stamps, and disability. The thing is I have a form of autism.

The New Year Agenda

It's now the first day of the new year and there is a lot that need to be done. I have medical physical coming up so I need to prepare for that. That means I would have to not eat any solid food and drink a lot of water the night before. So far with my freelance writing, I have a potential client I met at odesk.com and still setting up my elance.com profile. The job search for me, however, has being slow coming evening I put in 5-6 job applications. But like what I always say, "Some progress is better than no progress." I need to go to a nearby career center that could help me out with the job search.
