"What advice would you give to incoming first-years?
"Don't be upset that you're upset. You just need [to] find people that you can vibe with, and find your community. And if you can't find a community, make one." 
Gerardo Romo in the 2011-2012 issue

"What advice would you give to incoming first-years?
"Only spend your time and energy on people and spaces that care about you. You're too good to be wasting your energy and love on people who don't reciprocate."
Gerardo Romo in the 2012-2013 issue

You may have noticed that I switched from referring to those responsible for the zines described as "author" to "creator." That nomenclature is in keeping with xZINECOREx (pdf), the metadata schema for zines. Also, I like the implication that making a zine is similar to being a god of your creation.
