I Belong Here

Miranda July and I went to U.C. Santa Cruz at the same time. I loved her zine, "Snarla" and once tried to talk to her about how much I enjoyed it and her approach to the world. She ignored me and talked to the cute boy standing next to me instead.

We were all so young then. I have since forgiven her slight of my eager wish to be friends because I was so lost and crazy at 19, I can only imagine what she was going through, and she is still making really fantastic art that makes me smile and inspires me.

Check out her latest website, promoting her new book, No One Belongs Here More Than You.
