I'm here. I think.

Postby Calliope on Sun Oct 07, 2001 5:39 am

I'm sure by now you've noticed the lack of updates to the comic. Or the lack of any sort of message in my forum, or any update to the page. I'm not even sure where to start talking. By now everyone's well and ill of Sept. 11, I'm sure, so I'll just mention it in passing that yes, that's a major reason why I'm one straw from a basket case right now.<P>Physically, and even moreso emotionally, I'm a wreck. The flight instinct that I've been trying to suppress for nearly a month now did vanish temporarily, but only due to my emotions getting scrambled another way. (Since it seems almost my entire readership is male, I'll refrain from explanation of that and leave you to figure out for yourselves what I mean.) Classes? Hah. Two of them are nightmares that I wish I'd had some way out of. And I'm struggling in all of them. I'm slowly getting back on my feet.<P>Never mind that my whole life right now feels like a waking dream of the end of the world. I'd say nightmare, except that the connotations aren't quite that violent.<P>so...in sum...I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm still here, and if I manage to get a comic up, good, and if not (the more probable case right now), then know that I'm still here, just a nervous wreck.<P>I think maybe I'd just better stop trying to second-guess myself and declare hiatus again. I'm sorry to put you guys through this. But not everyone is strong enough to carry on with day-to-day life, or to pretend that everything's okay. I know I'm not.

I'm sorry, Calli.<P>We're all here for you, if you need to talk to someone. Don't worry about the comic.

I don't know what to say to encourage you. But this isn't the end of the world and you have to stand up again. I know it will be hard but while there is life, there is hope. And you still have your entire life ahead...<P>If I were there to give you a real hug...

Kim, you ARE strong enough to carry on with everyday life. Have some more faith in yourself, please. So you don't put up a comic for some time -- your life is more important. You need to take care of YOURSELF - your readers will survive - there is no need to apologize.<P>At the risk of sounding clich

Seems like a good idea, nose about, see if Calli's feeling better... I hope she and her gentleman are doing well and all, and hoping that Pocket will come back soon. She didn't sound at all well in her last post.
I'm just back to my weekly nosing in-to-see, basically what I did during her last hiatus.
Yes, Webcomic pilgrimage...sigh.

I've withdrawn from college for the semester. And not going back until next fall. I feel absolutely sick that I had to do this. But I didn't have much choice, it was this or madness.<P>On another note, for the curious, I've uploaded nearly a month's worth of old (i.e. six years old or so) comics into Adelaide's Phoenix. Which was partly why I set up that site anyway. I figured that'd make a nice little something to bide the time, while I collect the pieces of myself and get back on track.<P>At least I'm being allowed to rest. That is what I need, right now.<P>------------------

<WEEKLY VISIT>
It's good that you're getting some rest, and taking a break- I'm sorry that it got so bad.
I just hope that you don't end up even more stressed out being home than you were when you were away- this happened to me back when I was in the Army-visiting "home" was worse than being in the field. Hope you're doing well, at any rate, and thank you for the "Phoenix" strips- they're not quite "Pocket", but, they at least let us see some of your other work.
Take care, and I'll drop in next week...
</WEEKLY VISIT>

Well...I know it's a bit last-minute, but I should let you guys know...I have POCKET comics for tomorrow and Monday uploaded, and I'm going to try and keep at least M-W-F. I am feeling better now, and for once it really does feel like I'm home. At any rate...I managed to break one writer's block.<P>And yes, I admit AP was a bit of a vanity thing, more for things outside POCKET that people might or might not like - and that I really wouldn't care if they didn't.<P>And one last thing...the 'nuke' that Calli is referring to in Monday's comic (when you see it) is not what she is explaining. It's what she might end up having to explain if Prisca and Joachim pry too much. Since she's in a position where she pretty much HAS to tell them everything they wanna know...<P>------------------

Sounds like Calli was really stressed out.

Agreement! Happiness!! MORE POCKET IS GOOD!!
(it's also good that "It actually <I>feels</I> like home..." After your last trip, it sounded like things weren't going well there at all. Good wishes.<P>------------------
