Yes, I know what you're thinking: "This pal said they'd take ONE MONTH of hiatus and it's been oh, TWO MONTHS" aaayy :DU

Welp, in case you're wondering what happened) here's the short story (no need to read if you don't want to):

I finished my (most awful ever) thesis presentation and I was, technically, free since may 22nd

HOWEVER!!!

I'm gonna be honest and open my heart... I lost motivation after the (((self-sabotage))) presentation and I entered the void--- well no, I experienced an infamous depression episode after months of not having one, so I tried to disappear, but it didn't work. It's hard to pretend to be okay in front of family and friends. I sincerely hope none of you had ever felt that way.

So, somewhere in between... my therapy included acknowledging my emotions and not acting on them, as well as distracting myself from my hurtful thoughts. I did that by watching animal videos. I started watching the BRAVE WILDERNESS youtube channel and it worked wonders. (I recommend it, it's (mainly) beautiful)

BUT!!!

I got addicted. Do you see my problem? I'm useless.

HOWEVER!!!!!

After one month and a half, I finally regained my motivation so I have three pages to work on SAI and PS, and as you can see, I'm already adding colour.

I'm showing you this to let you know I'm going to continue the comic and that I'm already working on it.

I ask for patience. But if any of you don't wish to keep reading, I completely understand, you're free to decide whatever you want for yourselves. No hard feelings!

ALSO, THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH FOR THE KIND WORDS YOU'VE GIVEN ME IN YOUR WRITTEN AND SILENT COMMENTS!!


(Probably gonna delete this after I update)

EDIT: yikes, it's longer than I thought, lol, sorryyy

Thank you for finally posting something, I was worried something bad might have happened to you and that we may never hear from you again. I'm glad you're doing better and I'm looking forward to your amazing work.

I understand completely. You know that stereotypical middle school 'phase'... it's real and lemme tell ya... it's painful. Though honestly I got a thrill from freaking people out. My family always knew me as the quiet, innocent, baby, but when I turned fourteen(-ish) I went down hill FAST! I literally was obsessed with Jack the Ripped and loved to learn about serial killers and psychological issues. This is also when I got into anime and started watching black butler, attack on titan, and death note. A lot of what I learned back then has come in handy to be honest, but my depression only worsened and it lasted three years. Then I started taking medication and I lost thirty pounds even though I swear I barely move... but it's a confidence booster. I still like my fair share of horror and gore but I'm back to being the quiet, baby of my family... kind of. It's complicated

@DawleeRipper: I get you, it totally sucks to have depression, and it's good to read that you found some awesome interests! It's good to know a little about everything so don't let others tell you not to be interested in something only because they find it immoral or sinful. You're free to decide.

I'm glad you could fight against depression, and I know it's not that easy, it just doesn't disappear, but I hope you now know what to do to make it better and always remember that no matter what, you're worth it, and there are people who love you.

Thank you so much for sharing your case, and for understanding!
