Abstract: 
This zine spans two years of the author's life, age 21 to 23, and she explains it as follows: "This zine is a disorganized hodge-podge of my last years in college, and my first months of post-grad. Like my last issue, there are tons of references to coffee, Harry Potter, and not showering. But I bookended this round with two comics about my mom."
