"Its hard, cuz zines cost money and time, but in the end, even though i want to reach people, I try to focus in on the fact that this is for me, it is my thoughts, my outlet. I think just doing something for the love of it justifies it, even if its…"

"i came across a quote on pinterest.com which said something to the effect of "i don't care if anyone knows, i just want to make beautiful things," which kinda sums up my feelings on why i made a zine at all. :)"

"Yes.  I write a perzine and I do it to release my feelings, thoughts, emotions, etc..I like to think that there are people out there who can relate.  Sometimes when you're going through things, it is nice to know that other…"

"Yeah, this kind of thinking has been holding me back since I was a teenager. For real. Back then I just DID what was in my head. I just MADE what was in my head. I didn't sit and worry about it and it was exhilarating and I felt so…"

"Yes, I have definitely thought that about my zines/ what I had to say!!! I guess that is why it took me five years to make a new zine!!"

"It's a big relief to know I'm not the only one. I find it kills my momentum a lot, in the middle of working really hard on something. Suddenly I feel like a balloon being quickly deflated XD It's the same for me though--the reasoning…"

"Ahaha, yes. Every single time I make a zine. Sometimes it throws me so bad that I can't even get started. The last issue that I did, I actually had a full on meltdown. I was like, why do I even care this much? What is the POINT?! And it got…"

Hey guys,This might seem like a weird question, and I apologize if it has already been discussed, but I DID search it as best I knew how.I was wondering, if when you're creating your content, you ever just...wonder why you're doing it at all--'Why should anyone even care what I have to say, or what my experiences are?"I can't think of any better way to phrase the question, but do you know what I mean? Have you ever thought this way, and has it stopped you, or changed what you do at all? How do…See More

oh yeah, i think it only shows part of the comment unless you click on the "comment" link or whatever.

i think it's way easier to prank people when you can laugh all you want and they won't know you're laughing.

oh my gosh i bet!  i haven't used the internetz like that since i was in high school and it was common to message people on AIM with "a/s/l?"  i had a lot of fun prank chatting people or whatever.  haha.

but yeah so i guess this is a bit different!

i just looked up omegle, i had never heard of it.  kinda reminded me of that chat roulette thing, i remember an abusive drunk housemate using that and just giving people the finger all night like it was so hilarious.  anyway...  there's not really interpretive dance.  a little bit a movement i guess but mostly i am sitting on the floor singing.  haha.  but it is weird.
