In issue three she talks about strange dreams, a sexist teacher, grades, college, and other pop culture relics. This issue also has poems, ads, quotations, and top ten lists. Issue four has numbered anecdotes about things like 80s nostalgia, boys mooning her during class, dreams, working at ToysRUs, her likes, and Christmas. The zine uses clip art and the backdrop is a collage of small portraits of famous people. There are also poems, zine classifieds, and contributed work.
