My first zine

Last night I went to a meetup for Rookie, and it ruled! Everyone was allowed to bring either clothes or a zine to swap, and I took it as the impetus to make my first zine. I’ve wanted to make one since I was 15, but it seemed like something really cool people who are not terrified of X-Acto knives did, so I always put it off––until yesterday when I couldn’t procrastinate any longer and just went for it.

Originally, I had planned on making photocopies, but since I left it until the absolute last minute, all I have are these phone photos that I took at the Au Bon Pain where I made it. I’ve never really eaten there, but I highly recommend it as a public space. In the thirty minutes it took me to make this, I watched a very awkward job interview (“Were you fired from your last job?” “…Yes.” “Did you get along with your co-workers?” “…No.”) and a very speedy break-up (it was dramatic and loud but also so fast).

All of the stories are true. Sorry if it’s hard to read the pages. If you click on the photos individually, they get bigger.
