Hermit looking at the city from a distance.
Hermit showing a flower to a curious creature.
Two weeks ago in Pubski I said I had an idea to draw a silent comic about a hermit who finds himself deciding to live in a city. Here he is. Obviously, these aren't comics, but I think I'm just gonna draw him in various scenes for a while, just to practice drawing.
I'm really and seriously thinking I'm gonna go back to school. It won't be for anything crazy, like a degree, but a friend of mine showed me one of my community colleges has a bunch of work certifications and work retraining programs and they look doable, and affordable, and I'm gonna fucking make it happen. They have so many options, from forklift training to HAZMAT certification, to clerical training, to machine repair, to all sorts of shit. I bet this isn't an anomaly. I bet there's colleges all over the place that offer shit like this. Best of all, it's not a for profit, over the internet, we're gonna scam you college. This is a real place, with a physical campus, with real teachers, and all that shit. This shit is legit.
I had a draining day at work today. All of my enthusiasm has been sucked out of me today. But man, when I think about this, and talk to Dala or my parents or my friends about this, I'm so fucking pumped. I feel like I've been facing a brick wall for years now and someone just came by and said "Psst. There's a sledgehammer behind those bushes. Go to town." This year, I'm gonna stroll over to that sledgehammer, give the wall one last look, and then beat the ever loving shit out of it until it's nothing but rubble. Fucking wall deserves to be nothing but rubble, cause I want what's on the other side.
