copperfox asked:

“I have a question foreveryone, I guess. Did figuring out who you are come at a specific moment, or was it just age and exeriance that eventually made you realize what kind of a person you are?”

This is my favorite Vietnamese soup.

I’m just really hungry at the moment.

This has to do with a comic that was made a pretty long while back, so instead of trying to find it again, I'll just say this here:

Thank you for recommending "Oyasumi, Punpun" in one of your comics. :) It's become one of my new favorites for how realistic and natural it was... Cartoon bird-thing now withstanding.

Have you read "I'll Give it My All... Tomorrow"? I think you'd enjoy it.

Huh, that picture of Canhbau (sp.?) reminds me of the meal my mother just made - except she used a lot of mushrooms instead, with the occasional odd meatball in there.
The real deal looks rather delicious actually.

I like how you just live life, David. You don't overanalyze it or feel a need to classify and slap labels onto everything. But then again, I also like Miriam's and Connor's take on the question too--their way of looking at it is also just as valid. Whatever works, man.
That's a definitely good question to ask, though. I feel like there's still much more about myself that I'll need to learn about or comes to terms with no matter my age. Heh. *Sheepish smile*

Oh yea! Connor! What exactly did you do in Guatemala anyway?

Your funny answer is my favorite one David, lol! >w</ I wonder if I'll ever know when I am finally your age?? OvO I feel like there is still a true answer for me somewhere if I keep looking! >w> ... <w< ... >w>
Your question reminds me how my mom acts. She doesn't understand these kinds of questions either whenever I ask for her advice. She told me once how nobody ever knows 100% for sure about who they are and where they're going to end up someday. She tells me to always keep my life plans and expectations low, but I can't help but feel like I'm just giving up if I do that. I'm so confused!!! =A=;
I also love Brad's silly expression in panel 6. He looks so spaced-out, LOL! =>w<=

@beldon123: Oh, hey. Glad you're enjoying "Oyasumi Punpun". It's quite something, right? Every time I read it, I have to read some Takehiko Inoue afterwards for something more positive in a still pretty hopeless situation. I recommend you read "Real" since the viewpoints are kind've the opposite but still have the same air almost.

Haha, but yeah. I really like Oyasumi Punpun too.

No, I haven't. But with that title, I'm intrigued, haha. Thanks for the suggestion, I'm go look for it.

@Odd1Out: Ah, it's two words. "Canh" and "bau". "Canh" is just soup and "bau" is the gourd in it, the green things.

That reminds me our grandma used to grow it out in the back and they were huge and delicious. Even now I'm hungry.

Wow, I've never heard of it with mushrooms but I have had it with meatballs. I tend to like shrimp better but that's just 'cause I really like seafood, haha.

Haha, yeah, you're right. Whatever works. Hey, man. I wish you luck in whatever path you pick in life.

@MilkChii: Oh, really? I was worried the soup wouldn't look good to non-Vietnamese people. Haha, that's good.

@Justea!: Hey, this is Connor!

Brother's been haranguing me about this for awhile and I'm sorry that I haven't had the time to answer. I've just been meeting with friends and family with school starting soon but I also just don't like talking about myself a lot. Still, I am flattered by all the interest!

We stayed in Quetzaltenango in a rural area staying with people who lived there. We also went on some digs and really just traveled around a fair bit while also taking classes. The entire trip was focused mainly on the indigenous Mayan and how modern society and globalization had affected their lives as well as their reaction to it.

Globalization is definitely a very interesting aspect of global diplomacy and seeing how it affects other cultures is especially impressive; and it was nice to get to see up close and personal evidence of a time long before us. The USA still feels relatively new and seeing indigenous cultures again gave me more insight into coexisting cultures again. I have a fair bit to think about from the trip, especially concerning how culture affects personal viewpoints.

I hope that was helpful!

@Mavi: Hm, who knows? It's nice that there's no set time in life to figure yourself out so just take your time there. You can't force a revelation, after all, hahaha. Just gotta hope that it does eventually happen. And hey, good luck, man.

Hahaha, so you mean Bernard acts like your mom? Yeah, I feel like these are things he doesn't think about a lot, haha.

Hm, I don't think mom's viewpoint is 100% inaccurate, I think her advice appears mostly just trying to set you up for the least amount of regret possible. Regret is a pretty heavy burden to bear but I also feel like you're not too far off by saying it feels like giving up.

I think it's really up to you to find a balance in your life, right? They both seem like valid views, I'm sure you'll figure for yourself what seems right for you.

I think I like what Miriam told me when she said, "I'm giving it my all but I'm also not afraid of failure."

Hahaha. Brad's face there? I call that his relaxed expression, but he does complain about it. He can't stop me, haha.

@roxjey: Oh, did you guys? Haha, congrats. What was it for?

I don't think Vietnam got anything, haha. Living in America means never getting to see them perform. Eh.

@daviddoesntgetit: I know you're on break David but I couldn't help reading over some of your comics again. I miss them already!!! T____T;;; And I can't believe it took me so long to realize you wrote a kind response back! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! You are such a sweetie! TAT <3 <3 <3
David, I think you are right about why my mom tells me the answer that she did! ^__^ She only did it because she cares about me! =>w<= I can't believe I didn't see that! I'm so sorry Mom! ;A;
After reading your old comics, you also reminded me of possibly another reason on why she said that. It's a good thing my mom doesnt read online comics (she rather play Farmville or some other silly FB game). It's because she'd probably HATE what I'll tell you next. -__-; Secretly, I think my mom in still in love with my dad despite all these years. One of my brothers think so too. :( You would have to truly watch her to get what I mean David. It's hard to describe. .___.;;; I never ask because she has enough to think about. She would probably deny it forever anyways, LOL! XD
You and Miriam are right. I have SO MANY THINGS I wanna do when I'm older that it scares me at times whether I can do it. @_@;;; BUT!!! I need to give myself more time to find the balance that works best for me and give it my all anyway! I won't know until I try! RAWRRRRR! \=>A<=/

@Mavi: Haha, how flattering. I'll be back this week, already have some comics planned out.

Haha, you don't have to thank for basic human decency, glad you enjoyed the comment regardless.

Haha, sounds like you realized some things about yourself there, I think you'll be just fine in the future.
