Hi I’m back and feeling a lot better, thank you for being patient with me. I wanted to get back to this last Monday but it just wasn’t in me and I needed another week, it turned out. Unless something devastating happens, I should be updating every Monday and Friday until this chapter is over.

Please support my comic here so I can pay off my student loan bill for this month–every little bit helps.

Also, something else I wanted to announce but. Forgot. I guess.

There’s supposed to be ads here now. They used to be there, and now they’re not loading, and I don’t know why they’re not loading and I don’t get enough traffic for Google to want to care about resolving my issue with them not loading, despite the fact that I’m getting no ad revenue due to them not loading, but uh. They’re there. Supposedly. That’s what that big ugly gap at the top of the page is meant to be.

I’m probably going to uninstall them if they don’t start appearing again, whatever. I need to earn $100 in revenue before I’m allowed to withdraw funds, so I’d only be able to cash out every ~3 months or so anyway. They worked fine for a week and then they just stopped for no reason.

If they do make an appearance again and do anything intrusive, like make noises at you or pop up in the middle of the page over the top of content and block you from reading it, let me know what device you were using and I’ll see if I can find the setting I need to change so that doesn’t happen. I hate ads and I don’t really want them here, so I tried to set them up so you still see them, but so they’re very easily out of the way and forgettable. I just need the income, that’s all.

Thank you for reading.
