Wow I've been busy. Yesterday I got a call from my guidance counselor who told me that I had a bunch of extra credits, which meant that I could graduate a year early, so this year will be my last year of high school! I'm really excited about that.
But I'm kind of worried about college. I really want to take the distro with me to college but I don't know how.. I know it's a bit early to be thinking about this, but I want to start planning, and making preparations.. How the heck am I supposed to move 200+ different sets of zines from Florida to the University of Texas? And what about my dorm room? What will my roommate think?
The distro has been doing great, I've been getting a lot of orders lately, which is great! But it's also been expanding pretty quickly.. I started out with 20 different zines in January, and now I have over 200 different zines that are a part of the distro.. I guess I just don't where to go from here. I mean I'm just a 17 year old kid. Should I enlist my friends to help? My parents? I don't want to get too "commercial", but should I keep the distro from getting too big?
I really wish there was more of a zine scene here in Florida. I didn't really know how to go about starting one, so I kind of did a bit of research, and found there's not really any zinesters who live near me. So this past week I put a bunch of zines, patches, flyers, and buttons in my backpack, I got on my skateboard, and I kind of did a mini "tour", I went all over Sarasota and told people about zines and gave out a bunch of free stuff. It was really fun and I met some cool people. Maybe I should do a mini tour every month!
Anyway, I just need to get all of that out of my system. Thanks for reading! :)
