I wrote 5 zines!
|Me and Bruce (and my Dad) is the zine I'm most proud of this year|
I tabled at zine fairs - DIY Cultures, Alternative Press fair, Autumn Zine Fest, and Queer Zine Fest. QZFL was the best. OBVS.
I went to Paris and bought a lot of tat! (aka the day the Eiffel tower went beserk)
I started writing about comics for For Books' Sake
This year I learned that when my dance teacher told me aged 13 that I didn't have a 'dancer's body' that she was bullshitting me. I dance and I have a body, therefore I have a dancer's body!
I completed a tap dancing course, 2 hip hop courses, grade 1 and grade 2 ballet. I've performed at the Oxford Jam Conference, at various open classes, and most recently I performed in 5 routines at the Irreverent Dance showcase, and I am now super happy to report that I am Community Liaison for the Irreverent Dance board.
I went on rollercoasters. Lots of em.
I slept in train stations, I camped out overnight, and I stood in the rain and I got myself into a fucktonne of debt that I cannot pay back to follow Springsteen around on tour. I regret nothing.
I played bedroom pop songs at No Dicks Allowed
I met total fucking heroes
And other people met heroes on my behalf
I finally got a dog! Kinda.
I survived a flood!
I survived losing my favourite band
I fulfilled a lifelong dream and FINALLY saw Helen Love play live!
I fell in love with my best friend and I've been on the best dates imaginable - Namco, hot dog dates, ghost bus, dog shows, Bruce Springsteen singalongs, Metallica at the Imax.
I played a lot of D+D
I was so fucking proud of my friends' achievements
I dj'd at things
I got to see way more of my northern friends
And my london friends continue to be the best family I could ask for
2013 has been brilliant. In 2014 I want more fun, more zines, more gaming, more tattoos, more comics, more dancing, more bravery, more adventures, more hot dogs, and a dog for real.
