I just finished making a zine of sorts. It’s a collection of poems written by 6 of the best high school students that Japan has to offer. The writing is often grammatically goofy, and poorly spelled, but incredibly charming and honest, whether it’s a poem about hibernating bears or about trying to get into college. One of my students described the cover that I designed as “an eyesore”. I’ll let you all know when it’s available for mass consumption!
In other news, I’m going to lunch at a buffet tomorrow at the 3rd biggest mall in Japan, and am thinking of crashing a party that I was specifically not invited to after that.
