Survival Zine


I decided at 2AM this my morning to stay up and make a zine of survival mechanisms and just me talking about my favorite things, like CDG, Lady Vengeance, Beyonce, etc. I have not slept yet I am going to go do that soon probably. 
It is 16 pages long and in color and downloadable from my Google Drive, so you can download it and print it out for yourself and forward it to your friends also. The images are colored weird on Google Drive viewer, but if you download the zine, it will be fine. In any case, it is for you. It is for free. Please comment if you read it, so I know you've seen it! I hope you enjoy it and I wish you so much love for 2014. 
Here is the link. I love you a lot, 
Arabelle

I feel so inspired that you made this, and that I watched you talk about it on Tumblr as you made it

I'm going to keep it away under my bed or something for when times are tough or whatever because it is honestly the best thing ever

i am going to print and give to a few friends b/c i feel it's too golden not to share and you are such an inspiration to me in a lot of aspects darling and you know when you find something or someone so amazing you have to talk about it/them, tell others in the chance it makes them feel even a silver of what you feel and idk i can't even begin to articulate how much it means to have something touch me and make me care the way this zine does and sorry if this is too rambling and weird and stuff but in short your are fab and so is this zine (/just about everything you do ^^)

I like .pdf files because I can open them in iBooks and read them like an actual book (or in this case, zine) without having to print/assemble/worry about losing it. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

This has come at a perfect time and is the best start to the New Year. My favourite part is the axes, definitely. I started properly following you (hate how these Internet words sound stalky) in 2013 and especially your Tumblr has really shifted my perspective on myself/life/allathatstuff and having this zine now is like the pinnacle of all of that.

Arabelle Sicardi said...

the axes are mark aguhar's, that page was a tribute since she inspired/inspires me a lot. you should go through her tumblr.

Margaret Welsh said...

I absolutely will :)

Josephine Houman said...

Claire said...

thank you.

Miranda said...

I'm reading the zine now, and I'm loving every word of it. 2013 was the most difficult year of my life, and I'm hoping and praying that 2014 will bring the same amount of joy that 2013 brought in pain and struggle.


My favorite thing so far: No matter how shitty you feel, you're at your best when you're fighting.


You're amazing, sista. Stay fierce!

Kelly said...

This zine is exactly what I'm going through in my life right now. Thanks so much for making it!!

"...I know I will be the first and last great love of my life. Other people will visit and have a co-starring role for a bit, but it will be me, myself and I in the end. I want to do myself the favor of running after every opportunity to where I hear my heart calling to go where I breathe best."

I have painted this quote on a piece of paper and stuck it to the patch of ceiling directly above my pillow. These are words I have been needing.

I downloaded it and I'm keeping it close, for moments very I need it (i.e. every single days past university midterms)
