HERE. IN MY HEAD #7 / YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL #14
52 pages, 1/4 sized – £2.00
A split-zine with Tukru, with a loose theme of change and improvement. Inside, I write about being a shy girl, how to cope with the oppressive norms of feminine appearance, self-help advice, and personal development. Tukru writes about roller derby, Typical Grrls, her job, 2010 being a shitty year, and resolutions for 2011.

I haven’t had over 70% since my first year, before my depression got really bad… so I’m going to allow myself to celebrate this little achievement.
Other things I’ve been up to include:
1. Writing essays
2. Writing my dissertation
3. Campaigning with my friend Rose, who is running to be Women’s Officer! We went to Ocean to campaign last Friday, which was an interesting experience! I had a good time though; it was nice to do something different on a Friday night, rather than staying in watching Embarrassing Bodies.
4. Watching lots of thought-provoking (but depressing) films for my Theology Through Film module:
