Self expression is key

The first thing I feel is “man, this sucks.” And then it’s “I’m thankful that, so far, me and my family aren’t sick with this.” And then it’s “but there are so many who are!” And then it’s “buckle down and do your part so that even more people don’t get sick.” And then it’s “will red robins even be open when this is all over?” Oh man.

I love making comics, it’s a part of my daily routine. I like being able to read them years later- it’s like keeping a diary, but it’s in code, because only I know the fifteen versions of each comic I didn’t make that express different aspects of what I was feeling when I made it. Anyways, it is cathartic, solace inducing.

Neapolitan?

But for real, it’s the worst. None of the flavours individually actually taste like any of them would taste on their own. Plus, strawberry and vanilla make sense together. Vanilla and chocolate? Totally. That’s a frosty. But something unnatural happens when you put all three flavours together. It’s like, they make each other worse. It’s actually quite a feat, to wreck ice cream. Luckily the kids have horrible taste so it won’t go to waste.

What a reality

When appropriate civic duty means living like the kind of person I was generally discouraged against becoming, it’s cause to pause and reflect. Maybe the people who told me I shouldn’t play so many video games were wrong about other things- like, what If money can’t actually provide for all your needs? What if hard work doesn’t always pay off? What if Sasquatch are real, the Ogopogo exists, and bacon is good for my cholesterol? None of it feels real.

we’re now two weeks into social distancing in my household. In one day, I’ve gotten further through final fantasy vii then I used to get in a week. I even discovered a funny joke in one of the flash-back scenes that I’ve never seen in any of the other 20+ play-throughs I’ve done in the past. 12 year old me would be stoked that I’m supposed to stay at home playing video games and not going outside… but I could never of imagined the world events that would need to happen for this to be the best course of action for everyone.
