Summary
Immediately after finishing college, 22-year-old Rachel enrolls in an accelerated master's degree in nursing program, attempting to earn two degrees in fewer than two years. She is thwarted by a sleeping disorder and had to take medical leave. This zine was written at the end of her spring semester at Boston College before going back home to live with her parents. The cut and paste zine also includes a to-do list. In issue 2 Rachel reflects on the micro-aggressions experienced by women working in female-dominated fields, the new experience of having male classmates after having gone to a women's college, and how the important responsibilities of nurses are underestimated through stereotypes, sexist tropes, and condescending language.
