Jesus, I’m gone for a week and then suddenly an explosion of Brad questions. I’m just going to put them all as one comic because fuck Brad.

Do you guys mind if I take the next three comics to vent my personal thoughts? I’ll get back to answering questions soon enough.

In the meantime, a couple things. I’ll be going on vacation next week so who knows what updates will be like. I bought Miriam an animal encyclopedia and she’s been driving me crazy with it and I think our great-grandma was 93, 95? when she died. she had a stroke a couple years before, if it wasn’t for the fact a ticket to Vietnam is over 2000 bucks, and on such short notice, I’d head over.

And when I asked her what was the last thing she wanted to do before she died, she told me she wanted to see either mine or Bernard’s child.

I dunno, I’m just thinking about things right now.

lol hey man, it's your journal comic -- your audience won't resent it if you use it to vent. i think that's half the purpose of a journal comic.

Aw David, it's alright if you need to vent! That's what a journal comic is for, no? I wish I could say more asides from the usual "I'm sorry about your grandmother."
...I am certain that all she truly wants is for her family to take care of themselves and be happy. *Frowns a little*
Of course, it's still going to hurt for a while... so, take the time you need in terms of making the comics, responding, etc. *Nod nod* We'll wait for you.

It sounds like a lot of things happened over the summer, but it also looks like you managed to have some good moments too.
My favorite part of this comic is probably how you and Miriam drew chalk pictures; or, how well you interacted with the kids when you were watering the garden. You're mature and independent for your age, but you still maintain the youthful spirit of a child! You're a natural with kids. *Admires*
Tell Miriam that I congratulate her for working so hard--writing scripts for a month (and avoiding people, no less) is tough, I'm sure! I'm glad she now has more free time to spend time with her brother, at the least. *Small smile*

P.S: Just noticed your family photo on the previous page... damn, that's one hell of a big family! To think that there's still relatives that probably aren't shown in the comic either! I give you kudos for remembering their actual names (and honorfics), as a good relative should!
As for me? Uh... not so much. *SHAME*
Mine were never big on family reunions, but I can definitely say that our families are similar in that women dominate the family!

Now that I think I have a good solid understanding of the comic. I would like to read anything you put. :D


i did it!

i finally caught up!yaaaaaaaaaaaay
jeez my life is complete right now, i.. i officially have nothing to do. im a little sad :)


daviddoesntgetit July 8th, 2012, 9:38 am

@roxjey: Thank you. Rest in peace, great-grandma. You sure had a huge family though I'm sorry none of us had the money to visit more.

Haha. Not actually venting. I'm not angry about anything, just spent a lot of time with our dad and doing so always makes me think about things.

Connor? I don't get to speak to him that much since he's busy over there, seems like he's having a really great time though. He said, "I'm positive I want to do this for the rest of my life now."

Oh? I didn't hear anything about that, what happened?

@mikemacdee: Haha, I realize. It's just I'm still in the middle of answering all these questions so I have to put them on hold. And now it's going to take longer thanks to Brad. Ass, haha.

@Odd1Out: Ah, thanks, Odd1Out. That's nice of you but I'm fine. She was 93! Or something. That alone is a full life. I've always enjoyed how the Vikings celebrated a death, as long as she didn't live in vain, there's nothing to mourn. I do regret not having a kid in time for her but considering how many of us there are, I think it's ok. Overpopulation and whatnot.

Hahaha. What an embarrassing set of compliments, but thanks.

Yeah, Miriam even said she went to apply for some writing jobs which surprised everyone.

PS Haha, yeah, it does seem daunting. Growing up with it helps but I don't remember their names, I just remember their titles, haha. So long as I know their birth order, I have an idea of what to call them. It's the kids whose names I have to memorize, Jesus.


@Annab1119: Hey, congrats! Haha. Well, now you can do something productive but no worries, there'll be more to come.


bakura240 July 9th, 2012, 7:13 pm

Oh wow, I got up-to-date. How the F did that happen?
I know this is just because I've spent the past 3 days reading these a lot but I want to thank you for your comics. Their honesty and character have inspired me :D though I'm still too scared to be this honest in my own comics... There are a few things I've been thinking about for the past few days that I've never really told anyone and your comics have helped me to think about them and maybe to finally let them go by admitting to them... I dunno. *rambling now* Can't wait for the next update!


jonasfx July 11th, 2012, 4:06 pm

older relatives thoughts like that can be kind of though... I mean kids, I understand where you come from but I'm in a relationship where that could work. even if I feel juvenile at times. I don't know if I want to be another to force up the population -I think we're to many people on this earth as it is... anyway, go ahead with personal thoughts. as much as those can be an outlet to draw out, they can be a very good thing for readers, like me to have something to think about and maybe relate to. heck, we all have problems that would need more reflection. it seems like taking time to just sit down and think is something of the past when everyone is connected almost 24/7...

edit: anyway, I heart miriam. haha! what a sweet sis~
I'm glad to know that she's been productive! serious writing, brah! hehe


daviddoesntgetit July 14th, 2012, 4:21 pm

@bakura240: Wow, glad to hear you enjoyed the comic so much.

Ah, I see. I understand how tough being honest is, sometimes people don't appreciate it. However if it really means a lot to you maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised by people who can relate. I know I've been, haha.

@jonasfx: Yeah, 7 billion is quite staggering, haha.

Yeah, she's even been applying to jobs. She's been unemployed for three years, it's just really weird, haha.


jonasfx July 15th, 2012, 5:29 am

@daviddoesntgetit: by the way, what game are you playing?? thought it was mr. karoshi when I read it but that doesn't make any sense when I read it now! I must've been pretty tired haha


daviddoesntgetit August 15th, 2012, 2:06 pm

@jonasfx: Weird. I thought I answered this.

We were playing McPixel, it's pretty low brow humor but I think it's really fun, haha.


jonasfx August 26th, 2012, 4:48 pm

@daviddoesntgetit: haha I watched a playthrough a bit for it. it's just like those old click adventure games where you just guess and click everything :D
