It’s kind of amazing to think that Be About It was born out of my lil ol quarterlife crisis back in 2010. I didn’t know what I was doing with my life at the time but I knew I wanted to write and create art and share it with people. I got inspired, and I put my all into something that people still care about. I had an epiphany last night that starting Be About It was the beginning of me figuring out my identity. Praises to DIY publishing and poetry!

Also, check out Be About It #15 at Everyday Skate Shop's "Zine Bazaar" on April 5th in San Francisco, as a part of the Tenderloin's First Thursday Artwalk. I'll be there, hope to see you! 936 Geary Street, San Francisco, CA 94109, at Everyday Skate Shop from 7-11pm.


October Performances

This is my favorite time of year not just because my birthday is coming up or because I love haunted things and pumpkins and apple cider donuts. It's just my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the season, the chilliness, the darkness, how things feel quieter. Being out at night-- going to parties or just walking around city streets on the way to or from a party, which is usually my favorite part of the party besides the dressing up-- feels more exciting in the fall.

So maybe that's why I'm ready to do some things. Libra season is in full swing, scales swaying in the fading October sun, and I'm ready to do some readings. Please join me.
