a tote bag

Tote bags are ubiquitous these days. You see one on every shoulder.

That wasn’t the case in my hometown back in late aughts, and yet, my very first tote bag is from that time and place. As with many things i own, there is a story behind it. Back in the student years I met a wonderful person who helped me see life from a new angle. In 2008 they were part of making a short lgbt-themed film, which was part of the Side by Side film festival in Saint Petersburg. I was just an adjacent cheerleader for the project, but they still brought me the tote bag from the festival as a souvenir.

The bag is in a great shape, and serves me well to this day.
