Comment on Stuffed Cabbage of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

So... I actually had time to do this comic!
Gee, I forgot how relaxing it can be drawing comics. My summer commissions/assignments/part-time job/"what-have-you" has kept me rather busy, so I can't promise that I'll be able to keep up a weekly comic, but I will try my best! ;^;

-------------------------------------------------------
In other news, on the 24th, I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled, so now my face resembles that of someone storing acorns in his/her cheeks for the winter. Luckily, only my bottom two teeth were impacted. If all four were, I would resemble a Lego minifig.

In the meantime, due to my restricted diet (for now), I have been forcing myself to whip up soups, chowders, soft things... I have also been digesting a lot of milkshakes.

Stick a banana, ~5 scoops of ice cream (I've been favoring cookies and cream), and 1/2 cup of crushed ice in a blender, and you're golden. GOLDEN.

Also, speaking of food, I checked out from my local library two graphic novels by one of my illustrator/comic artist idols, Lucy Knisley, who is definitely one of the most talented and creative artists out on the scene. I just read, "French Milk" and "Relish: My Life in the Kitchen". She draws AND she likes to cook/eat! How perfect for someone like me.

I've just been professionally contracted for the next few months!
Long story short, I had submitted an application for a part-time medical writer position for a company, and it turned out that they needed an illustrator for a certain project more!

I signed a fancy contract to illustrate about 100-150 drawings for a medical publication, which I will be working on for the next few months. Hooray! Unfortunately, however, I feel that if I continued to commit to weekly comics I may end up with a combination of both psychosis and carpal tunnel. Yeech.

I hope you guys check back in with me at this site when the leaves begin to fall!

Today was a good day
1) The weather was perfect
2) Rode the beat-up, spray-painted Black Beauty with the top down, hung out with my chica, Maira
3) Got up close and personal with a smattering of baby duckies
4) Got two pristine-condition Cranberries CD's for two bucks each
...

OH! And today, at church, the priest gave a really good homily addressing the horrible shooting in California. He mentioned that most people think it's corny and old-fashioned to say and admit that "God loves us" no matter what, but he also mentioned that even more old-fashioned way of thinking was that of fatalism and everything was in the hands of something supernatural.

However, we all know for a fact that we are in control of our own destinies. He noted that a child who is loved and cared for by his parents has the self-confidence to do great things, but one who is neglected often feels that no one at all cares about him at all (eg. the California shooter). HOWEVER, it is up to Christians to instill the knowledge in those neglected that no matter the situation, no matter how lonely you may feel, God is still with you, and he challenges (not threatens) us to realize that and build the confidence to utilize ones talents and resources to do good rather than bad.

Sorry for the late-ish update!
I am currently writing this from my Aunt and Uncle's house. I've been trying to get my baby cousin, Andre (about 2.5 years old) to say my name.

Me: "Andre! Say, 'Nicolle!' Ni-colle! Ni....colle!"
Andre: "Eeeaaaaoooaaaoooiiieeeooo....."

If only my name were "Da"...

------------------------------------------------------
And, yes- my Grandparents are visiting from Florida! They actually drove me up with them to visit my Baby Cousin Andre today.
------------------------------------------------------
Sun's out, fun's out!

Which means... I can listen to Tennis again (their music can be way too happy and peppy for the winter blues).

I have listened to their first two albums, but I didn't realize that they put out an EP late 2013 (this is what happens when I don't have a twitter/follow them on Facebook): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmlNH_1cXG8&index=1&list=PL4vwkP1KYS_diqPFC p3SYS0QyxTz_QTT9

I think "Mean Streets" is the best song out of the bunch there.

Well...
I read a nice quote online earlier this year (via a post on Facebook):

"The happiest people don't focus on what they need, but focus on what they have and making the most of it"

It is now posted on the wall of my apartment. I think it's a good mantra for this year, especially since it's been pretty hard for me for multiple reasons. I'm trying to rework in my brain every difficulty that's come across this year and mark it simply as a stepping stone to "buck up" (as Steve would say) and learn from.

Becoming an adult is a lot more daunting than I thought it would be, but I think the hardest part is just how open-ended it is. There is no one set path, nothing is simply right or wrong... In high school, you work hard to get into college, and in college... you work hard for... well, the possibilities are endless, and that's what scared me the most ever since I started undergrad, I think.

There's fear, anxiety, and, sometimes, yes, disappointment, but you have to remember, that no matter the situation, you can still always be resilient! Always remember that there isn't one set path, only one choice.

Like a tree that's chopped down in the forest... With spring rains and decomposition, new flora will grow!

How has everyone been doing?
I hope all of my Christian friends have a nice Easter tomorrow :-)

Oh, and about this comic, it simply MAKES my day if I get a single positive reaction from my sister, Gaby to one of my jokes.

------------------------------------------------------

The long and winding road... Tha-at leads... to finals week! I end my supposedly hardest year in pharmacy school in less than a month. Crazy, right?

I hadn't drawn in a few weeks, and when I started working on some illustrations for the student-run newspaper that I contribute for, I was like, "Hey! Wow! This is relaxing and fun! I sure missed this". Then again, when I started drawing again I just ended a week of three exams (Monday, Wednesday, Friday).

Speaking of which, gee! I have another triple exam week coming up early-mid-May followed by a week of 2 (or 3, depending on whether or not I decided to take an optional final) exams...

Sorry if I'm ranting about my wonderful academic calender!
------------------------------------------------------
Awkward Steve conversation of the week:
*on the phone*
Me: "I'm painting my nails deep purple!"
Steve: "Dit purple, what?"
Me: "DEEP!"
Steve: "I can't understand what you're saying."
...
Me: "The word rhymes with your old car[he once owned a Jeep]."
Steve: "Purple Truckster?!"

I was on Spring Break, so sorry for the BREAK last week (get it?)
I was on Spring Break this past week, so basically, after I got home, that Friday night a I just hung out with the fam, watched a lot of TV and read. OH- and I had two exams the previous week too.

I watched "Grand Budapest Hotel" today! It was definitely worth seeing on a big screen (you're able to pick out more little details). Lots of symmetry again, of course (as expected by Wes).

*MINOR SPOILER... NBD REALLY THOUGH* (see below)
------------------------
Continuing my discussion on Wes' forced theatrical symmetry, even when some person's four fingers get cut off, they are all equal in length and fall all in a row! Yes, that movie is definitely rated R (but no uncomfortable love scenes or anything save one shot, just language, violence, and themes!

Happy belated birthday to Janice!
It was Janice's birthday yesterday :-D

We (the ones in this comic) went to Sushi Palace and I took some pictures with some chubby cheeked orange fish.

Comment on In Your Face of Another Crazy Comic by Nicolle

Well...
Have you ever worked hard and done extra work for something only to have the tables turned on you because of a simple mistake?

During my pharmacokinetics exam, despite me going to extra recitations, studying ahead of time, and attending each lecture (where only ~30-40 people actually show up), I end up losing 10+ points on a 50 point quiz due to me not knowing how to make a negative number on the examination-given calculators ;-;. I knew how to do everything (all of the written out problems and equations were correct), but I just lost half of the total possible points for each problem that required me using the mysterious (+/-) button on the calculator- uaaaah!
----------------------------------------------------
*ahem* But enough of that...

The band Real Estate is releasing their next album on March 4th. I streamed their earliest two albums while coloring this page. Very nice, continuous streams of sound. Perhaps you have heard of their single, "It's Real"? http://grooveshark.com/#!/real_estate NJ represent
