beautiful mess

Beautiful Mess #4 by Bittersweet Designs

from the author:
Beautiful Mess #4 is a text-heavy personal zine about traveling out west, settling in Montreal, activism, education, and overcoming fear. As well, it features an article written about a friend's experience in jail after the G20 protests in Toronto, among other things.

what I love about this zine:
I really enjoyed the writers description of her move from Calgary to Montreal.  Her take on a new life, loneliness and friends had me feeling nostalgic.  I especially liked the piece that discussed facing fears head on.  Anyone who can allow a furry spider to crawl on them has my respect.
