Yo big HUGE thanks to Boston for Smash It Dead fest. It was an amazing fest that ran SO smooth and is a great thing that should exist everywhere. I had so much fun.
And double thanks to Krystina for letting a bunch of smelly punks take over your house.
This sums it up.

[Image: a photo of a white poster that reads, “We believe that punk is a culture of resistance, against sexism, against racism, against homophobia, against heternormativity, against strikebreakers, against transphobia, against pigs.” The rest of the text is cut off.]

This is part of what my upstairs bathroom looks like now. I’m going to wash my face over a sink for the first time in three months tonight. I’m ridiculously excited over it; it’s the little things.
