Accomplishing real things
June 18th, 2000
I figure its time to clean out all the new subbies I got. I start to feel that I should put MORE into the zine. Real stuff. and stuff that the subscribers actually like. But what can I do with a diary zine? I think I should make that a "thing to do" (2) figure out more original/cool/fun columns for Emerald Eyes. After 72 minutes on TBDx I FINALLY got the issue sent with a ton of minor mistakes some of them I caught but didn't wanna change them. Now I know I should've.

A day of things to do
June 17th, 2000

1:05am
Let's see, what do I gotta do today?
1. First off: I have to send out an issue of IOTEE - my diary zine Cuz I haven't sent...

11:33am

I just got online (MOB) I gotta do some things for "4 Diaries": talk to the applicants individually and figure out my 4 for the zine itself. Unforuntately nobody's on right now, so I'll go straight to deciding the 4.

Ok I'm going through the list of people and this one girl Scotia can't be online a lot but she seems very dedicated. So I e-mailed her about it.

I got it down to 6 people, but it's so hard to choose. Gosh: I was thinking bout making it 5 but I really don't think I could handle it. But I'm not gonna make my *final* decision until I hear from Scotia.

1:13pm
Ok, my next concern is ITO Emerald Eyes. It HAS to be sent out TODAY which is my goal for today. Even though I don't want to... I HAVE to, all part of being an editor!

I just checked my mail for TBDx and I received a couple really awesome comments it gives me strength to actually go on with the zine, you know? What sucks is that most of this **** is a lie!!! Oh well, I'll deal.

9:09pm
I got home around 7:30 and got online at 8:40, I knew I had IOT to work on but I "didn't want to" but that's the quality I gotta let go of! So I'm gonna try to finish the ish before I have to pray. I'm not even gonna go online just finish the ish!

10:17pm
Ok I'm almost done, just need to add my story. It'll defintely be out today.

11:02pm
Ok, just one little problemL I have 89 pieces of mail - mostly subbies and subbies and I don't feel up to it right now. Organizing the member list is so dreaded at this time of night. What a wasted day, I did only 3 things on my list! Well, actually it IS an accomplishment that I actually finished one Emerald Eyes issue. Hopefully I can get it to be weekly with this new leaf I've turned over. Guess I'll see what happens.

How I got into the "Zine World"
June 16th, 2000

4:22pm

I don’t know how I ever got into the “zine world.” I guess it started when this girl (in a chatroom) asked if if I wanted to subscribe to her BSB “newsletter”, yeah, that’s what they were called back then. I can’t even imagine how long ago that was, the zine world sure has changed since then. I mean, back then, there was no “zine world” really.

Anyway, it took me awhile but I saw all these new kinds – not BSB zines – and I guess I was like “If they can do it , I sure can!” So I made “A Girlz World,” there might have been 1 or 2 before that one. A Girlz World didn’t turn out too good, I just couldn’t handle the responsibility of making & sending the zine out every week filled w/ stuff I really didn’t give a crap about. So then I decided to start a zine which reflect my interests: Destiny’s Waterfalls. IT took me forever to think of the name, but I knew it was going to be about beauty and fashion. It ended the same way Girlz World did.

I’ve come a long way since then, and so has the Zine World. IT has become more and more a part of people’s lives and I’ve seen that they have become dedicated to their zines. Why aren’t I? I ask myself. I’m gonna change that about myself cuz zines are the 1 thing that keep me out of boredom. But I’m still bored. It’s cuz I don’t put enough time and effort into them, like a lot of people do and make great zines. Well, I’m gonna change that about myself. Starting now.
