Hello there! Today was the Chicago Zine Festival, which I went to with a group of awesome Rookies. It was so much fun, although it was incredibly overwhelming. I wanted to look at every single zine there, and I ended up walking around for a bit not buying anything because I just needed time to soak it all in. I did pick up some great zines in the end, and I'm so excited to read them tonight. I also got some cool buttons to add to my ever expanding collection. There was such a palpable energy at the festival, and everyone was really nice and friendly despite being SO talented and COOL, that the day turned out to be pretty fantastic.

|Caroline and I realized that we have the same camera, so of course we had to take pictures of each other taking pictures (cameraception!!)|

Overall, this was a wonderful event, and if any of you live in the Chicago area, you should definitely consider going next year! I hope you are having a great weekend!
