today i went to the brooklyn zine fest. when i first got there i was actually too overwhelmed and i had to leave and walk around williamsburg for a minute. i used to do things like this in college, with a group of friends that i don’t really have anymore; in fact, i helped to organize a zine fair in college. but i didn’t know anyone here, and the nostalgia was too heavy.
i went back in, though, and i traded my little zine away, and i met a girl who writes a zine that i own a copy of, that i’ve had for about 10 years. i like little reminders of how tiny the world is.
