The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.

I met Jen Venegas, who writes “She’s Not A Morning Person” zine and the skinnedkneesnet blog, at my home away from home - Riverside DIY Print Fest. I thought from the start that she did quality work, but I also found her to be a very sweet and warm person who I am glad is one of my closest friends. We’ve had some times together, and not just zine events or readings, but deep conversations and checking in with each other. I have body image issues, a topic Jen writes about, and she has definitely made me feel better about that. In general, when my life is crazy, she always know just right when to get in touch and make sure I’m okay, without me having said a word. 
She is thoughtful, funny, beautiful, and deserves all the happiness in the world, and you should buy all her things.
I love-love-love Jen Venegas. Best of birthdays to you, Jen!

I remember my son once asked me, “Did you ever, like, kiss in high school?” And I told him this long drawn-out story of how shy I was, how I finally got a girlfriend but she broke up with me because I was too shy to try to kiss her, and then I had another girlfriend but still couldn’t figure out kissing. The technique was always a big obstacle in my head, like, How do you kiss? Where does your chin go? Forget about anything beyond kissing-first base was a total mystery to me. So I’m telling my son this long story, and he listens patiently until he finally realizes where I’m going with it, and he says, “Dad, no-did you like Kiss in high school? Kiss, the band!” And I was, “Oh yeah, Kiss…they were good.”

Ok, friends. Here’s the deal! After much encouragement from you all to start some sort of crowd funding for my project, I decided to set up a FoodStart. It’ll take up to 24 hours for my listing to actually be listed on the site, however, I do have a link available to my FoodStart page:

http://www.foodstart.com/project/giraffemunchies

You are under absolutely NO obligation to donate! This is just something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time now. For the sake of keeping this post short and sweet, I won’t go into all the details completely - those are all viewable on my FoodStart page.

If you’ve been following me, you know that I’m a vegan pastry chef. I dedicate all of my spare time to creating new dishes, and I believe from the bottom of my heart that I have all the tools to create a successful business. The only thing lacking is the funds. Everything else is outlined and ready to go.

If you’re able, please help pass this message along. Thanks for your time!

*** PS - shout out to the ever so lovely maxvocado for creating my adorable logo! Thank you again!

Tomorrow night. Me. You. The coolest new #diy space in town. I’ll be reading from #DontHideBehindYourSkirt & finding my inner Cher Horowitz. ❤️ #zines #losangeles #love


TONIGHT!!!

Hope to see some of y’all tonight at Echo Chamber Creative Headquarters for Storytelling Tuesday - THE PAST. Admission is free, but bring some dough in case you want to buy zines (and you will, because these writers do good work). The lineup begins at 8pm, but you’ll want to show up by 7:45pm to sign up to read your own story after the scheduled readers, if you’re interested. And everybody should show up earlier to take in the glory of the space and to thumb through the L.A. Zine Fest Zine Library onsite. Parking can be tricky on Sunset, so be aware and carpool or take mass transit if able.

I have had the honor of performing a higher number of readings this year. The frequency of those or any other public appearances are about to decrease significantly as nesting begins in anticipation of Le Petit Prince, coming to a planet near you this October. It would mean a lot to me if you attend tonight. Thank you.

I have a longer piece, recently written and never published or performed, that I’ll be sharing. I’m considering using it for FAIR DIG #3. Maybe you can attend and let me know once you hear it if you think that’s a good idea.
