The Year of Making Things

Earlier this year, I declared that 2014 would be The Year of Making Things. I definitely wanted to write more and, of course, make more of myself in the year to come. But it was also a bit more practical than that. Yes, I wanted to create art, but I also just wanted to make tangible things. Put things together that I could use, that would serve a purpose and be personal.

Money That I May As Well Have Put In the Trash, Burned, Made Confetti Of, Etc.

$130 to visit a boyfriend at his college in Virginia. I spent hours on a bus imagining how great it was going to be to see him, only to spend a week being largely ignored. He broke up with me a few weeks later via AIM.
