  1. OH Mxx so wish I could take the visual writing class. Looking at having to move now -kciked out bloodsucking BF and my fab daughter is at SF State U.
    Cannot even find a place to live on 900.00 a month.
    If you ever have a scholarship again please let me know, or even if I could audit one of your classes.

    You’re the best. On so many levels.
