Author Notes

16th Jan 2021, 3:00 PM Hey guys!! Happy New Year I guess?
I was hoping to have a bigger-than-usual buffer going for this chapter so I could be extra prepared, since this season of my life is a little uncertain and could potentially get really busy. However, I started feeling burnout creeping up on me in the middle of the second page, so after I finished that one I decided to just start the uploading schedule and to keep adding to the buffer as I can, and if I miss a week, it will be okay.

(Long update post ahead, don’t feel pressured to read)

A LOT of things happened last year, some of which I didn’t really know how to express - my Opa passed away, that book illustration job ended up taking 6 months instead of 3, my oldest sister got married, my family put our house up for sale with the sudden desire to move to a different province - and I ended up choosing to stay in Alberta, but that means moving out, which likely means getting a new part-time job somewhere. (And that’s not even mentioning the whole government restriction stuff that happened)! So basically, I’m working through a lot of growing pains that are normal I’m sure, but still hard.
However, even though it’s scary, entering a new season of life is also really exciting, and it’s a chance to get along further on the path to the life I’ve always wanted to live - a parked car doesn’t get anywhere. Eventually, ya gotta move forward, even if it’s slow at first <3

It’s wonderful to have you guys to chat with through it all, you are the main reason I always look forward to uploading every other Saturday <333 Thank you all so much for being there, God bless!

16th Jan 2021, 4:13 PM Welp I wonder who top-right masked person is.

A lot can happen a short time, and having a bunch of unknown obstacles ahead is always scary. But even when a lot changes, you can find comfort in knowing that your passions/hobbies will still be there.
16th Jan 2021, 4:45 PM He’s a character who will be officially introduced in chapter 5, but he will be referenced in this chapter before that also. (I just put him on this cover because I needed something to do with that blank space mostly XD)

Exactly! I feel that <3 Thanks for your nice comments!

16th Jan 2021, 4:28 PM Whoo! Excited for new chap :DD Great shading btw, really vibrant. Wonder what "Part of the Circle" implies hmm.

Great to hear you persevered and have such a healthy look on the challenges and changes 2020 brought. All that sounds overwhelming but I think you got it pinned, just have to take it one step at a time and enjoy the process, cause eventually it gets better more often than not :)

And fun chatting with you too!
16th Jan 2021, 4:48 PM Thanks!! Yeah hopefully it will all come “full circle” by the end of this chapter haha!

Ah you’re so right! And talking to you guys helps a lot more than I even realized at first, it’s amazing <3 Thanks Sovember!

Best wishes moving forward in life!

Glad to hear you're persevering.
17th Jan 2021, 12:23 AM Oh they’re not moving that far, phew! Thank you <3 at the end of the day, think a change will be really good for me.
20th Jan 2021, 9:02 AM I like how Kairo almost looks like he's wearing an Evan shirt XD

a lot of things happen as we get older, but some things only happen once, so it isn't always overwhelming. have fun and good luck!
20th Jan 2021, 9:36 AM Haha you're right, that's hilarious! X'D

That's great advice, thank you so much!
