SOS 2015 ‘Zines are here!

Over the summer our awesome Purple Team put these ‘Zines together. In these articles our participants will give you a glimpse of what goes on in Summer of Service. They will also write articles that are just for fun. Another function of the ‘Zine is to be a safe place for our participants to express themselves, and their ideas. They choose the topics they would like to advocate for are given the opportunity to have a voice.

Session 4: Blog 5

Ok. So, blogging. Woo hoo. So what we did today I shall tell you all…

                Ok, so once upon a time, we had to make a movie. YAY movie right? No. Just no. You know why? Because you have to edit for like 2 hours straight. Do you know what that’s like? No, no you do not. But editing IS fun. We were also so very happily distracted and unfocused. So lalala we lived happily ever after.

                After we edited (a LOT) we went out to eat lunch. You know what game we played? What we play EVERYDAY, Evil Magician! YAY! Rebecca still hates it but oh well. SPECIAL TWIST! We played with the Red Team today. And yeah, so Evil Magician! YAY!

                Then we worked on Zine articles all afternoon. No floor activities *tear tear tear*. We had to do our articles in InDesign. It is exceptionally tedious. Like, you know editing. Trevor tricked us into trying to finish our articles faster. WE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN! He was all like if you finish your article you shall get a prize *holds up little white box*. So naturally we little Curious Georges had to know what it was. So we tried. Guess what it was? A timer to time showers. Yay, not really. But yeah, it was fun.

                And that is what we did on the Purple Team today. It was fun.
