I’ve always loved making comics and using art to get my feelings out. This year, I’ve been doing quick sketchbook comics – documenting my thoughts, feelings, funny events. Anything. I made this one to capture my excitement about moving to Boston in September. My boyfriend – my best friend – lives there, and I can’t wait to be reunited with him. We’ve been best friends for years, and we each went through a ton of rough experiences and even rougher relationships before we ended up with each other. He respects me, supports me, and makes me feel loved, valuable, and safe. We haven’t been in the same city since 2010 when we were both studying in Beijing. It’ll be so fantastic to be able to be with him again.
I’m also living in an amazing feminist anarchist collective in Boston with many amazing, inspiring, active women and men. I can’t wait to immerse myself in that passion. September is gonna be the start of a lot of good things for me.
