First of all, I want to give a big thanks to Rob Balder of Partially Clips for letting me on to the Webcomics panel at Arisia this past weekend. It's only the second webcomics panel I've been on (and the first one that I didn't have to create myself), so I was pretty bewildered, but it was an interesting experience.

Next, A big thank you goes out to Dennis of FOG Club for taking time out of his busy schedule to do the pin-up for us. He's done so much for us. We're not worthy! We're not worthy!

Finally (I save the inconsequential stuff till the end), recent events in my life have caused me to reflect on a number of aspects of myself. Looking back at the past 10 years or so of my life, I'm not sure I like what I see. I know I do not like the person that I used to be, but I'm not sure I am satisfied with the person that I am now. The answers to exactly who I really want to be and what I really want in life elude me now.

To put it simply, I've lost my way in life. It's a little strange that just a month ago, life seemed so certain. I was almost content with what I had; but now I'm not sure of anything anymore. Doubts fill every one of my waking thoughts. This is probably a good thing. Without change and new experiences, a person cannot make progress. It seems really cliche, but I need to go find myself. I need to find the person that I can respect and admire being.

As for the comic, I definately want to continue it. It's one of the few things I can think of that I do like about my life so far. Even though I may not know exactly who I am or who I want to be, I know that creativity plays a big part in my life, and that's something I don't want to change. What I do question is my ability. It's extremely hubristic of me to call myself a writer of any sort (the part in the omake where I'm introduced as a writer actually made me cringe a little). Throughout my time in school (even through college), english, writing and literature were my weakest subjects. I have no training whatsoever in being a writer, and looking back at some of the story elements, I think it shows. Also, I'm not satisfied with the level that the work is at. It should be better. I should be capable of better.

Sorry for the rambling. I'm just kinda mixed up right now. There are just some things that I need to sort out on my own.


Hello folks. I'm enjoying my vacation this week. I guess to some people, it may seem a little odd to need a vacation from a comic that only updates once a week, but after a year and a half of trying to maintain this page on a weekly basis, it became a little harrowing. I want to keep going, but at the same time, I began dreading updates. I had a hard time getting myself to do them and after a really bad week that I had, I just decided that was it. So hopefully, in about another three weeks, I'll be raring to go again. It's just nice to have my weekends back. And lastly, props to Dennis from F.O.G.Club this week for the art he did for us. I'm so grateful ;_; .
