Receiving a gift: hhhhhh oh man they really tried with this but it's really not my style and now I gotta figure out what to do with it and I gotta pretend I really like it and-- 😬

Receiving food gifts: I can eat this! πŸ˜ƒ

That struggle, when you're about to add a song to your story playlist.. but you can't tell if it actually matches the story or if you're simply vibing with it.

I used to worry that having my characters do development arcs would turn them into boring perfect beings.

But now I realize there's so many opportunities for negative character development as well. πŸ˜‚

Idk, just something I've been thinking about.

I should update my discord gaming status to "Kimmy is drawing hands again."

Nothing compares to the panic I feel when I discover an anime character whose hairstyle I subconsciously stole while designing my comic characters.

I feel like I need to lock away pictures of the Originals so no one learns my horrible secrets. πŸ‘€

Anime antagonists be like "What happened to you? Your eyes are no longer the cold unattached eyes of a killer like mine.. how dare you become emotionally well adjusted and capable of trusting others???"

Bros really be hating on people taking care of their mental health. πŸ˜”

Me, reading writing advice on social media: well, this person *clearly* hasn't read my WIP. If they had, they would know there advice doesn't apply to me specifically. πŸ™„

Help, I woke up at 7:30 this morning even though I'm taking the day off. 😩

I'm already tired but can't fall back asleep..

What they say: practice writing every day

What I do: practice thinking of ways to work ridiculous situations into my story that I wrote as a joke, but presented in a way that everyone thinks it's the smartest thing the characters can do at the time.

Saw this guide on drawing expressions and the hand section made me think "oh look, it's my comic."

Me, painting my toe nails orange and purple: when you're in lockdown, any day can be Halloween because no one can stop you. πŸŽƒ

For those wondering about the comic updates, I'm not on hiatus or anything --still working on pages.

I just used up my last buffer page on US election day. And then I took a week to defrost my brain. So now I'm thumbnailing the next few pages.

Maybe one day I'll stay on top of the cycle. πŸ™ƒ

Extended work-from-home means I start doing little workouts at the house and my cat gets really concerned for me.

He meowed at me the whole time I did squats and when I did pushups, he headbutted my forehead every time I came down.

Watched a show this weekend where a character commented on a women's "perfect C cup" breasts and I died a little because she was drawn with at least DDD. πŸ˜‘

Kinda I wish people would stop mentioning sizes like that in fiction because your choices are:

1) be honest and admit she's 5'9" with helium breast implants

2) lie straight to my face, making me question if you've ever met a woman

Sorry for the salt, but like. Stop trying to sincerely put *real sizes* on *unreal bodies!*

I used to feel discouraged by that quote "Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." But the idea hits different now.

Maybe since we're living in crazy times, there's a certain comfort in learning: oh. We've been through this before.

It feels like the movements of humanity are more of.. a weather pattern. Like a hurricane --which doesn't lessen the suffering, but it does tell me that nothing is permanent and there are tools for us survival. Because we've done this before.

Since I graduated high school, I've been working on filling in the gaps in my understanding of history (you know, American school system, etc).

And I'm surprised to find that the more I study, the more I understand about the nature of humans (maybe more than I've ever learned in psychology).

There's actually something endearing in the fact that, across our short recorded time in earth, we've more or less been the same creative, paranoid, persistent hairless primates.
