010: Happy Travels

December 20, 2010

Check it out, it’s my tenth comic! Huzzah! Took me long enough, I guess. Check back on Friday for a surprise!


009: Leisure

December 18, 2010

It’s really weird being back home. I find myself with a lot more time on my friends, and – when my family doesn’t get on my freaking nerves – less stressed. Very little has changed at my house. It’s very surreal being back, pitching in with housework, talking in Spanish with my grandparents. I’ve missed it; but I feel strangely disconnected from it all. I don’t know if I like it or not.

See you Monday, folks!

008: I Can Explain!

December 13, 2010

So these last few days have been a bit nutty.

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys! I’ve been trying to catch up with school after a horrendous flight back to Boston from Portland, Oregon – I learned that I don’t do well with red-eye flights. While getting my clock back to normal was a bit of a struggle, so was a mess of work I needed to do very quickly, including sample magazine spreads (12 pages worth, as well as a cover), a poster and an invitation postcard (which also needed to be printed professionally). I also learned that printer people are badass people, at least the ones I got to deal with.

I’m really excited to go home to Miami. While the weather is indeed a plus (okay, more like a plus-plus-plus), I can’t wait to be with my family again and see my friends. I am ready for winter break!

See you on Friday!

007: The TSA has TMI

November 22, 2010

My two cents on the hulabaloo surrounding the TSA. I’ll be flying to Portland, Ore. tomorrow for Thanksgiving, and I’ve actually been dreading going to the airport for a while. After a number of flights earlier this year for graduate school visits/apartment hunting, I did love to fly – but now this business has made me incredibly anxious and concerned about traveling. Not flying isn’t really an option for me, so I’m really caught between a rock and a hard place.

But anyway! Silly filler comic will come on Thursday for Turkey Day. I hope you all fly safely and soundly this week!

And so concludes this arc! Hopefully I won’t encounter any other ridiculously bitchy T operators. Though a hilarious near-altercation between two passengers occurred this evening… man, sometimes people can be so incredibly obnoxious.

But no more T comics for now! There wil be two updates next week; one on Monday and another on Thursday, for Thanksgiving. Expect turkey.

See you Monday!

And it gets even better, folks. Don’t get me wrong – I love the T. Boston’s subway system might be flawed, but coming from Miami, the transit here is a complete 180 from what I’m used to. I am eternally grateful. But my gosh, I was completely floored at this operator’s rudeness! I’m sorry I didn’t have a car, lady! What am I supposed to do? NOT get laundry detergent?

Anyway, the conclusion of this saga will be up on Friday! Stay tuned!

Good news! An extra comic will be going up on Wednesday this week, thanks in part to an incident that happened this past Saturday. What transpired? Stop by Wednesday & Friday to find out!

Also, I had dinner this evening at Khao Sarn. Delicious Thai food! If you’re a fan of this cuisine and are in Boston, you gotta give this place a shot!

UPDATE, 11:14 p.m. EST: New comic replaced – red text in the last few panels should be easier to read! Sorry about that!
