Here's a brief rundown on what's been up with KYQ:|
Work at the shop's been okay so far. Days seem to fly by pretty fast at the shop. The hours are boring, but it ain't so bad with friends popping by to visit, and being around tons of toys is never a bad thing to me. Not to mention it's the only way I can get some money at the moment. Overall, it's fine.
I recently enrolled with a Driving centre, and am to take my first theory lesson next wednesday. Fuck, these lessons are expensive. A fee to enroll, a fee for every lesson...jesus, why don't they charge me per every second that I'm in the damn building. Hell, I don't even really want to drive. "Learn to drive, you'll soon know the freedom it gives you when you drive your own car" says Dad. Sure dad, IF I can ever afford a fucking car in this fucking country. Pfft.
Yet on the other hand I'm still having lots of pent up frustrations and anger and worry. Worried about University as always. Lots of advice and encouragement and...well..I do hope all will go well.
Drawing wise, I've been slowly inking MSG Man 9, but only for the fact that I just want to finish it and get it out of the way. Seriously, I don't know why I still bother. I draw like shit, people who do comics that're 1 page a century get more views than me, I don't see why I should bother anymore. But I do. I'm just a fucking fool I guess.
Your not a fool if you do what you like. Quite the opposite actually.
Bah, don't worry about University. As long as you don't skip lectures everyday like me, yuou'll be fine. But hey, I'm still surviving so far.
And not this crap about how you draw again. Seriously, would you rather copy a mainstream style of drawing "manga" just to get more rabid fanboys to your site, or stick to your own style and have a few peeps who really appreciate you visiting the site?
You should glad that you're able to do what you like and not bogged down by all those insecurities and anxieties that many other webcomic artists have... *cough*Megatokyo*cough*
Point is, just enjoy what you're doing. If not, it's not worth doing, in my opinion.
Hey, don't be like that.
I thought the main reason you started that comic is because you enjoy drawing them. Not to expected to get pageviews for it. That's why I respected you.
yes,driving lessons cost a bomb. i paid 24 quid PER HOUR. and each lesson was 2 hours. so 48x3= ?SGD. singapore's such a rip-off.. i mean, THEORY lessons???wtf ??? all i did here was apply for the dumb test and study the highway code book 2 days before my test. geez.anyways if you don't get your license/lose interest in lessons by the time i get back, i'll be your chauffeur (or however you spell it). you'll be up in boston after this summer so all you really need is a temporary driver now,right?right. :D
don't worry about uni, i know you'll be alright. you know i'm always here if you need me. don't mean to sound like i'm trying to be know-it-all or condescending but if you have anything on your mind,just ask because even if i can't answer your question, i can help you figure out something or just listen to you (which helps because it's load-sharing.)
and, about your drawing and comic... please. for the sake of , you got your fanbase and we love your stuff because it's YOUR work and not somebody else's. we like it for it's originality,unique artwork and storyline. it's got it's own punch and flavour.don't be swayed by society or mainstream rubbish. it looks like it has brainwashed you. where's the passionate and enthusiastic Qiang i used to see? we (you,guang and i) aren't the sort to give in to the pressures of society ..okay,so maybe i've been kicked down by it quite a few times but still, you get my drift. point is, get yourself up and going. and enjoy your birthday too.. i wish i could be there. love you loads
seems like livejournal doesn't accept the usage of the pointy edged brackets. so let me correct my previous entry..
"and, about your drawing and comic... please.for the sake of (insert holy name here) , you got your fanbase and we love your stuff because it's YOUR work and not somebody else's."
