I started working on this page in August.....


Real talk, one of my resolutions for this year is to just enjoy drawing again. I wanted to finish this page tonight so even though it's not perfect (like right now I see about 5 things I would go back and change if I had to re-scan it, or like why did it resize so shittily and everything is so harshly aliased) I'm just glad something is going up onto the site.
Most of my resolutions this year also had a second "reach" goal- my reach goal art-wise is to finish chapter 7. *I don't know that this can actually happen.* Outlook for 2018- I am, in theory, 1. getting a job, 2. moving out into an apartment, and 3. getting married actually in real life, for real, to a real actual man. So, like, *will* I be able to make enough time for drawing? Probably not enough to actually finish the chapter but if I can beat 2017's output of four updates I'll consider it progress.

Remind me NEVER TO DRAW A SPORT WITH BLEACHERS OF SPECTATORS EVER, EVER, EVER AGAIN (though imo the bleachers are one part of this page that actually came out close enough to how I wanted it so maybe it was worth the tedium)

Um, other than that, thanks to those of you who have stuck around and not unfollowed the comic???? There *will be* impending drama, I promise, and I am in fact in the process of re-writing this chapter's scripts for like the third time because I need to add ADDITIONAL DRAMA.

Happy New Year everyone, and I'll see you next week with the second page of this scene!

NEW YEAR, NEW UPDATE, LIFE IS GOOD 8D

Seriously, I know you have a lot of stuff on your plate lately (good luck and congrats!!!) so it's good to see you update on top of it all. I believe you can do it, the key to a healthy art habit might be enjoying it just enough to want to carve out a bit of time for it regularly. I'm still learning to do it too.

And in a way Phil is right because college IS about making connections but I was like Eddie and didn't realise it until way after graduating (and even if I did realise it earlier I still fail at social stuff anyway).

@Oly-RRR: Thanks!!!!!! I can feel parts of it getting easier again. I worry that's just another fakeout lol but I am starting to get interested in just working with the characters again and actually making pages so i can get to these new plot points.

Yeah, Phil's got a pretty valid point :( You and I are similar in that regard, I mean I did have a friend group in college but I wish I had spent more time getting to know other people. Like planning for my wedding made me realize how few close friends I've made in the past 5-7 years... I *make friends* wherever I end up, but it's always in the context of the workplace, we don't really hang out outside of work/grad school, and then don't keep in touch afterward except through pseudo-interactions on facebook... bleh :/

I WRITE TO YOU AS I SIT ALONE IN MY ROOM DAY ## OF STAYING HOME WEARING SWEATPANTS AS PANTS AND A SECOND PAIR OF SWEATPANTS AS A SHIRT

@mitchellbravo: I would say forming friendships was easier when we were kids because kids are more or less stuck in the situation where there's tons of peers to socialize, except I was regularly failing/avoiding that too. Proper friendships are weird and rare, but having someone who's okay to temporary share the temporary space you're both stuck in is not too bad either (THAT'S ABOUT PHIL AND EDDIE, NOT A WEDDING SPEECH DRAFT LOL)

Sweatpants are the best attire for creative work (that and PJs). HOW DO YOU WEAR SWEATPANTS AS A SHIRT THO???
