    this is hitting a little too close to home, but I love the illustration :3

  • pij_sirup February 24th, 2013 4:23 PM

    At the moment, this is my life too. I made myself go out last Friday night. While I waited for the first morning bus to go home, I decided no more nights-out for now. My bed is warmer and socialisation is easier and I don’t have to spend money I don’t have, and when someone bores me, I just pretend to log off.

  • larvaa_ February 24th, 2013 4:44 PM

    aweee man esme you couldn’t described my life any better, whenever I’m (rarely!) invited somewhere I ask “is it free? ” cause I’m a broke chick 4 lyfeee

  • Tambourelle February 24th, 2013 5:05 PM

  • cornly_ February 26th, 2013 6:15 AM

    Hello Rookie, I just wanted to ask for your help about something related to prom. So my school’s prom is merely 2 days away, and since I am broke, I dug in my closet to look for a dress, and luckily I found one but it’s not prom-ish enough. It is this dress. ->

    So yeah, I don’t know what to do. How do I make it look more like a prom dress??? I mean… you know? I am so clueless about this whole prom-thing and ahhh oh my God please help me.
    Do I add something to it… or what? Because, you see, I thought the dress was okay enough but then I decided to google prom dresses and I was shocked because everything was glossy and not at all what I expected. I thought it’d be more not-flowy and stuff. I thought the gowns only happen in movies. But, no. I don’t know, I didn’t know, this is going to be a disaster. I don’t know who else to ask for help, and Rookie’s the first one that popped in my head, and you guys ARE experts in this kind of thing so, you know??? I’m sorry, i’m panicking, I really didn’t want to go to prom, to be honest. If only my friends didn’t made me feel guilty about this whole thing.

    Either way, HELP!!!!!

    • Caitlin H. February 26th, 2013 2:45 PM

      Wear that dress and you will look a* i’m sure- i didn’t want to go to my prom and wore an almost identical plain black dress (only girl who wore black but that was almost fun in a way) and there are some people who go for huge ott dresses but IT’S NOT EVEN ABOUT THE DRESS just have fun and be yourself and it will NOT be a disaster. I know i’m not an expert but please don’t panic!

      • cornly_ February 27th, 2013 4:48 AM

        Thanks so much oh man. I’ll try and have fun as much as I possibly can. Besides, it IS my last year in high school so, yeah. Thanks still! :-)

  • hiraari February 26th, 2013 6:24 PM

    This is so brilliant, seriously.

  • glitterzombie March 2nd, 2013 11:00 AM

    This comic made me think… Because I don’t have much friends I spend my weekend alway in my bed, watching TV an eat something… But I don’t feel happy! I don’t want to be like that, I just don’t have the courage for change anything…

  • Cutesycreator aka Monica June 12th, 2013 7:34 AM
