Although Miriam might not, she might just be here forever.

The canal is hilariously devoid of life, all the stores along the walk are basically closed so we get some peace and quiet that we don’t get in the city. The walls of my apartment are worthless and every Friday and Saturday night I’m treated to the people fighting in the streets. I hate them.

I’ve been thinking of moving into a house but I need to start saving up money.

Thank you for the very nice comment, papernest(tumblr). I enjoy drawing comics about my family too, more so than my job. It got me thinking about how important they are to me.

Out of curiosity, what are your guy’s relationship with your families?

Finally caught up with all the comics.
Loved to read them all, they are all so touching! I always like to walk when no one is around, when I notice people coming my way I try to take a turn and 'out run' them. xD

About your question, I get along great with my older brother and sister, my younger brother and both my parents.
But my younger sister I fail to connect.
... maybe I should try harder.

@MilkChii: Haha, oh, yeah? Glad you enjoy the comics. They mean a lot to me too.

Haha. I hear you, they're almost like invaders in a way.

Ah, that's great to hear. Always great to hear. Well, if you do try I wish you luck! I sometimes have trouble connecting with Miriam, especially when she talks about gay things, haha.

@royjey: Haha, yeah. The atmosphere around a family is different, isn't it? It's great.

Always nice to know people get along with their family.

Haha, it's a mix. Sometimes we all feel very close, and other times, very distant.

Although, I do live with my sister and she's a bit like my best friend, if it weren't for her I don't know what my life would be like.

...And I'm a bit like Bernard when it comes to my dad. We try to get along, it's just exceedingly difficult.

@Sir: I see. I understand how difficult it is sometimes and whatever happens I wish you luck in your life.

My mom and I are kind of tense, but we've become pretty good friends ever since I moved out. My dad and I are good friends and I love being able to see him every day. I moved in with him while I go to school. I love how similar we are and he can always make me smile. My brothers are lame. That's all.


Close but..

I love them, but my family is kinda depressing.. It's like they can't stop sulking and look at the bride side, even though they always are there for you. Sweet, but selfhurting ^^

family, huh? I've basically grown up in a middle class family with no real connection with either parents, sister or close relatives. we'd do stuff, from time to time but I've come to realise that we nearly never ever talk with each other more than just easy conversation.
it's been a bit more lately but since I live so far from them now it only happens once or twice a year tops, if even that.
I feel lacking in my current relationship as I'm not used to talk. I'm pleased with just being in the moment I guess but it's hard to build anything bigger without talking, I've noticed. ha ha...
my sister wishes that I move back to my hometown since she came to be a mother. I guess she realised that family matters to her. it's hard though, it doesn't feel whole hearted so I let it rest. there might come a time when we're ready to talk more freely.

I'm glad I've taken the time to get to know my older relatives though when I get my chances. they're easier to talk with on a personal level without it feeling strained, for some reason. I hope to get there with everyone else I care about more in the future :)

@Loss_of_Motion: Haha, your brothers are lame? Well, I'm glad you have a good relationship with your dad.

@Mr.sasser: I see. As long as you still care for them.

@jonasfx: Hey! Sounds good that you want to build more of a relationship. I hope it works out well for you.


jonasfx April 21st, 2012, 3:55 am

@daviddoesntgetit: thanks :)

The family is kind of isolated when it comes to the younger generation, but we keep an eye out on each other. I guess it's more duty than intimacy, but I'm not sure. It's nice how mom and dad act like kids having fun though.

"Honey, I think I have a rash here..."
"What? I don't see anything."
"Come closer."
"*fart* Ahahaha!"
"AGH! You--!"

I don't know what to think, but I can't help but smile.

@daviddoesntgetit: I don't get along with anyone in my family. They say things that hurt my feelings, or they ignore me, or don't want to spend time doing things that I like. It's really hard being the only one in the family who likes things like comics and anime, cuz it's hard to relate to things that they like. And being bisexual in an african american family is hard as well. You get a lot of, "You're going to hell, you should change your ways now." And stuff like that. They're judgemental, and I sometimes think they're racist. But we grew up in the ghetto, so I can't blame them. I would be like them too, if I didn't make a decision to change. Anyways, sorry for the long read.

The closest person I'm closest to is my older sister. My two younger brothers are kinda young, but I still talk to them sometimes. My younger brother (who is 12) recently entered middle school and I often remind him to not go near or become one of those gangster, asian crowds. I can't say that my relationship with my parents are that good, though. But it could be worse.
