Uh, this comic is kinda meandering 'cause it was based on a conversation I had with Brad and I didn't know what part I wanted to isolate so I just used this huge chunk, haha.

Ah. Good enough.

Bernard avoids any generation above ours like the plague. I wonder if he looks at his entire medical career as a big fuck you?

It's funny that Bernard doesn't curse anymore, 'cause he was the one to curse a lot as a kid in order to relieve stress, haha. Bernard and Connor are really alike.

I've been watching 90s comedy shows, Kids in the Hall and the like. Do you remember these jackets?

I just have to wonder if someone still has one stacked away somewhere and they're just waiting for the style to come back. I'm sure ours have been donated by our mom. Haha.

I really enjoy these childhood bits. It's kind of fun imagining people as kids. Is it weird to wonder how different people would act if they'd met when they were children?

Dear lord I remember those jackets. I've never had one though... haha...

@junemisu: Hahaha. It's so spiteful but it's hilarious. Long con.

Man, really? Are those jackets making a comeback? Haha. Fashion.

@hyeonmu: Haha, glad you enjoy them. I draw comics about the past when there's not much going on and I just start thinking about them.

You've never had one?! Man. You're missing out on some awesome old photographs. Haha. I kid, I kid.

Oh man. I remember those times as a kid that my uncles on my mother's side (my mom only has brothers)and my mom's "friends" thought my brother and I were going to end up dumb just like their own kids.
I remember always being a smart aleck to all of my uncles because they were always hating on my mom for no good reason. So much for gratefulness to my mom for taking care of them when they were all just children back in Vietnam.
Well, my brother and I proved them all wrong when we both made it into one of the highest ranking high schools in my state. And then went even further than that by graduating at said school, getting a few scholarships, and currently attending a well-known medical university.
I guess I'm a bit like Bernard in a sense; taking a lot of shit from adults and having to protect my brother from my parents. My parents argued a lot when I was a kid. I remember when I was just 7 years old, I had a talk with my 5 year old brother about our parents possibly divorcing and splitting us up. We would discuss which parent would take custody of us and also who'd we go with if they asked us to pick. Luckily for us, they never did divorce. My dad is a wonderful person; best dad I could possibly have; never gets mad without good reason. But my mom... I guess she was always stressed out. Hell, I believe I pretty much took all the abuse (verbal and physical)from my mom as a child and even was a teen. I was the main punching bag, so to speak. That didn't make me feel good about myself; I'm sure you'd what type of words and phrases comes out from a very angry and stressed out mom. I got very depressed all the time when she was around which was every day. It was really great that I had a younger brother to talk to and that boarding high school I went to (which allowed me to be away from my mom). Because without those, I probably would have done something I would have regretted. I'm just glad that now that I'm older. I'm still mad that my mom doesn't admit that she ever said those words to me. But at least now, she's starting to be nice to me again. I can never forgive her but I can keep going now. Oh shit, now I'm crying. I'm sorry. So for being...I don't know, depressing? personal? I don't know,I'm just... weird. Sorry. It feels good to talk about about it somehow. just... thanks.
