GUYS! I was gunna write a news post but I didn't think anyone would really notice/read it SO HERE'S THE SCOOP INSTEAD. There's a TL;DR down below for people who don't like reading. For those who didn't see it somewhere further down the comments yesterday or on Twitter since then, I FINALLY GOT A FREAKING JOB!!! Right when I was about to lose hope. I'll tell you about the job and how it will affect the comic in just a moment. I kid you not, I was about to print and mail off forms to get welfare and government aid and then beg for food because I was in THAT much shit if I didn't get a job like, now.
What does my getting a job mean for YOU GUYS, THE READERS?
1) Nothing will change for you guys! I WILL STILL BE DOING COMICS DAILY, SO EVERYTHING IS COOL.
2) At least I will stop griping about eh lack of a job, this should at LEAST cover rent and food. That's honestly it.
3) I just wanted to say thanks to everyone, you've all been so supportive and nice about my job hunt, and I probably would have given up sooner if it weren't for you guys cheering me on. Not to sound cliche, but I was pretty close to giving up, really.
4) I'll be working full time in a large hardware/renovations store in town. Most times it's either 8-5/9-6 or then 12-9 shifts, and even then it leaves me time to draw the comic and so on. Life is good.
I will be going over some real life/home things that need addressing asap, and then I guess I'll be starting to look into neat ideas for this comic in the future! I have a lot of things I want to do/share with you guys!
THANKS AGAIN AS ALWAYS FOR YOUR AMAZING SUPPORT AND JUST FOR READING! I know most of you don't comment or say anything, so even if you're silently lurking and reading, that means a lot to me too <3
TL;DR : I got a full time job, finally, and this won't affect the comic, you'll still get your daily doses of laughing at me, also I love you guys!
P.S. I had to buy steel toed boots for work, mandatory, and that makes me happy because I found a cool pair that looks like hiking boots, and I've also been looking for an excuse to buy a pair for a long long time now HAHAHAH
WHOOOOOOO! So glad to hear you got a job!! :D!!
And, hi, I'm one of those silent readers that lurks in the floorboards.
...*goes back under the floor* You saw nothing.
Congratulations! I'm honestly happy for you, and it seems like a good job too. From your comics alone, I always got the impression that you were a great person with lots of humour who deserved some more luck in some aspects of life than she had.
Good luck for the future and I hope your job will be fun!
Yay! Congratulations!!! :D
hehee~ it's like the splash of sudden colours fit this really well! not so "blue" anymore, right?? ;) and that was just a corny joke! I'm still very much liking the blue style you've got going :3
@DonutOverload997: Thank yooooooouuu!!! :D :D !!
Silent readers! <3 I KNEW you were there, this now proves that I am NOT crazy!
I don't mind if you're quiet, if you enjoy the comic then that's good enough for me hahah! :D
@Glueckskeks: Thank you!!! :D :D!
It's a very fine job, it's a nice change of scenery, I actually find it pretty cool working in a hardware store!
Thanks so much though, you're a real sweetheart! <3
I admitably have had some bad luck and bad karma but, I figured something good HAD to happen. It happens to everyone sometimes right?
I probably don't help myself in making a funny comic about bad things in my life, be they real life problems or things like "I have to wake up early". It's a good way to blow off steam and keep everyone amused :D
@grifendel: Yaaayyyy! Thank you so much!! <3
@jonasfx: BWAHAHA you're right, I never even thought of it that way xD
I've gotten attached to the blue too, I mean I add color here or there, but the blue thing is pretty nice. I did them in blue at first, because I was lazy and didn't wanna change colors and did a batch and chucked them on Facebook, and I guess it was love at first sight.
I couldn't keep away from the colors today though~ <3
Thanks so much by the way!! :D :D
congratulations!! i know it can feel like a HUGE weight off your shoulders to finally have a job. i hope it goes well for you!
@kribbit: THANKS! <3
It DOES feel like a huge weight off my shoulders! It's been going well so far, impressed everyone :D
Congrats for the new job! Hope you fit in with your co-workers well :)
@GONE: Thanks! They're all really great, it's a fun place to be at because of that! :)
