As creatures of habit, we create systems to provide comfort and ease. Be it life’s trials, love’s quarrels, family drama, or just the need to be free, we all find escapism in some type of routine. This issue is an exploration into all of the things that make us the same. The secrets of our truths and how we use our time here to impact others. We exist in a culture that obsesses over art while ignoring the madness of artistry. Fluorescents in a room of smoke and mirrors. Not everything we see is what it seems and this magazine is positioned to offer truth to those who seek it. Community-driven, our goal is to be a panacea that unites us in our ways. We’re all just trying to find the perfect footing between life and vice.
