Hello there. It has been an age since the last time I posted, but I guess the allure of comics just became too much today because I woke up and HAD TO POST SOMETHING. And here we are. Song lyrics as a facebook status.
Yea, I know this is hardly groundbreaking news, but people post an awful lot of song lyrics as statuses and I find this confusing. I’ve never had anyone come out and quote me a song lyric when I ask them about their day, so I really don’t understand how anyone can select a seemingly random lyric and decide that it’s somehow significant enough to quote as a status. Since most song lyrics on their own sound incredibly depressing, my usual response to a lyric-status is something along the lines of “OH my goodness, are you ok? That emo song lyric you just statused implied that you were either severely depressed or in need of an iTunes makeover. Let me know ASAP because I am sweating over here”. Now why on earth would you want to stress me out like this if you’re just enamored with a particular song?
If this lyric is SO SIGNIFICANT, then why not write a sentence to explain. For example “I hope to hear this song tonight while I’m out on the town getting waaaaaaasted”, or, alternatively. “I enjoy listening to this song as a way to get through my otherwise unimportant tasks whilst I’m unemployed, and I think you might like it too.”. Ohhhh – now I see what you mean, AND can respond appropriately! Now that wasn’t so hard, was it?

What is shower art? Well I guess this kind of is. I’m pretty busy these days with my final papers for all of my classes, so instead of doing comics (which can be stressful to be honest), I’ve been working on my Wreck this Journal. It’s the greatest form of stress relief EVER. This page is just one example of the joy its brought me. I coloured it with water-colour markers and then took it into the shower (well sat it on the shelf in the shower – out of direct spray, but it still got pretty soaked). And voila – instant rubber-ducky art.
Hope you like!
And watch out for more comics coming soon. Well as soon as I get my brain back in order from all these papers!
This one is based on a conversation with my dear friend @tianafeng, who never ceases to amaze the world with her imagination. Seriously, why does everyone’s mind go straight to thoughts of poop when I say that I’m visiting a wastewater treatment facility? Oh wait… I get it now.
But seriously, I bet there aren’t too many people who get to visit Scottish sewage treatment facilities while studying abroad. I’m just a lucky lady.
Anway, I’ve got to get back to procrastinating.
