I Care About Things
So. Second episode is up for Orange Unicorn! Go check it out. Now. It’s an order. Or, maybe, just a suggestion? Up to you.
On a similar topic, I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep the webcomic going. I’ve just had my first week of classes back to college. I’m involved in a lot of things, a lot more than I have ever been in college. Last Thursday I just sat in my bed and cried, tired, worried, anxious and everything in between. I ended up watching Hotel Transylvania 2, which I don’t recommend – not the greatest movie, didn’t even offer that many laughs.
I’m going crazy. College reminds me of how much I want to do, how much I need to do and how much incapable I am of doing everything. The funny thing is that, in high school? Well. I slept a lot. And did very little, and just didn’t care. I think the only thing that has changed is that now I care about things.
I care about my grades. I care that I’m making art and making work. I care that I’m putting stuff out there. That I’m working on growing my audience. That I’m working on becoming a paid artist by the time I’m out of college. (Even if it’s part-time.)
I care about things. I care about this webcomic even though it’s just a baby – maybe it’s because it is such a baby that I care so much. It’s so young and fragile; without me will it survive it’s childhood? So I will stick with it. I will stick with it. I will do it. Because what can be more encouraging than to do something you believed impossible?
I think these Tuesday posts are going to end up being just me reflecting on my webcomic making. Hope you can bear with me.
Your support means a lot to me: it helps me keep going. Going. Going. So if you’d like to stay updated with the webcomic make sure to follow the blog!
