Fortunately, soon after I found out about the new (non)job situation, I got an email responding to my volunteer application at the Institute of Contemporary Arts. So yesterday was my first real day of volunteering (I helped wrap presents at the gift shop a few weeks ago). It was the last day of the Tara Donovan exhibit there (which I unfortunately never got a chance to see), so it was really crowded, especially when coupled with the New Years holiday weekend.
So that's it. I like to volunteer.
