"I think you need to be more pro-active. If you make something and you want to sell it, then you can't simply talk about 'expressing yourself freely', as that probably means you're making stuff no-one's interested in even if,…"

Addendum: I am now in my third year at university and, lamely, most of what I wrote below still applies. University has not been the vessel of transformation I expected; besides one drastic hair-cut and a recent shift from shabby to shabby-genteel as my chosen affectation, I still like everything on my list short of American Apparel T. Shirts, for, dear reader, behind my strident and pretentious tone there beats a human heart. I have had many new experiences however - such as running LadyFest 2010 in Oxford, teaching my hobby, I mean craft, to sixth-formers, going to Canada a lot and, finally, streamlining my profile by getting a goddamn binder. All material for a zine at some point, I imagine. And the important bit - I am now compiling a zine entitled Dissocia with fellow writer, Betty Swallow. 

 

I am an English Student and I live/study in Oxford and London. I started making zines when I was about fifteen, then stopped, then started again, then stopped, and now, in my first year at university I'm beginning a new one entitled 'Culo'. I'm a writer - I would like to be good at it and earn a living Making Shit Up, but it's unlikely. I will probably become a second-rate academic and accept a reasonable teaching post in a bog-standard university. I will have a very cool wife, preferably one richer, better looking and more talented than me and we will adopt many babies of varying ethnicities. I think kissing is hotter than anything. I'm hoping to call my dissertation 'Mouth to Mouth: Kissing as consumption in twentieth century literature.' I gained a love of long/creative/absurd academic titles from Alison Bechdel and was very pleased, on entering university, to find that my tutors encourage it. I also like:

Capsicums
Table tennis
Chai
American Apparel t.shirts
My bike
Indian ink
Cocoa butter
Ackee
Mystery accents
Queer theory
Transsexuality
Granta magazine
Fountain pens
Poetry
Films

This list provokes lots of middle classed guilt, and I wonder if my black/female/queerness off-sets this. I do not support any mainstream political parties. I am socially/morally/sexually/ethically confused, but spiritually sound.
