Laughter and books make life a little easier


Hi everyone! Guess what I want to shout right now?

This was a really lame cartoon, I’m sorry. I wanted to add more panels and reactions and things, but then my internet just died last night when I was composing this post. I think it must have hit the bandwidth limit. Oopsie. That’s embarrassing. Too many vlogbrothers videos, maybe? That’s another thing I do when procrastinating, and it’s kind of addicting. This is why this post is even later than usual. I’m in the university library right now, using stupid, slow Internet Explorer to write this. Ugh.

I had to get it published before NaNoWriMo starts, because I also have to add that I don’t know how regular updates will be between exams and novel-writing and everything else I complained about above. I’ll try to update on my writing and I have a few cartoons that I can upload, so we’ll just have to see how far I get. Anyway, if you want to laugh at my failure to write, the NaNo widgets have made a reappearance in my sidebar –> right underneath the follow icons. It’ll update with my word count, if you’re interested. Now I can just hope my internet makes a reappearance tomorrow.

Speaking of NaNoWriMo, I made myself a word count calendar this year and I’m uploading it to the internet if anyone else wants to use it. Feel free to download it, save it as your wallpaper, print it or share it with your friends! Just don’t remove my watermark, or distribute it as your own.

Featuring: a Lord of the Rings themed NaNoWriMo calendar. (I took the opportunity to compare NaNo to an epic journey, Frodo’s to be specific.)

Now, for the random stuff (yes, this post is long, consider it making up for future lack of posting): when I started this cartoon, I  thought of this book cover:

Don’t panic! That’s advice I could do with remembering! That’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, for those who can’t tell.

And then… as I took this picture, I though “How many things are there sticking out about my head?! Seriously…” So then I made this (I was bored):

Okay, that is probably quite enough. I’m going to look for a novel plot now. Find me on Tumblr for more NaNo related stuff, or check the sidebar widget and good luck to everyone else participating!

Happy Hallowe’en! :[

  1. Happy Halloween to you too! By the way, Sandy did not strike us, only a part of her long tail did and it left a lot of rain, nothing else. The real bad part got the East Coast of the US.

      That’s good to hear! Glad you got off lightly! 🙂 Hmm, I saw. It wasn’t pretty pictures.

  2. I have a friend who just started college, and I’ve forwarded your blog to her. I love it, and I’ve been out of school a few years now, hope she will too.

    • Wow, thanks! 🙂
      I probably should clarify that I don’t complain about my amount of work all the time. A lot of the time university is great too. I should know better than taking extra subjects. Everyone has been warning me for years, but I never listen! 😉

    My daughter is doing her PhD so I’m used to the grumbles, whines and complaints about oh-my-god-mum-you-can’t-imagine-the-work-load, etc, etc!!! Just hang in there, Elana, and good luck!
    By the way, a brilliantly colourful post.. thanks.. 🙂

    • Wow, she’s up to a lot more than I am! 😉 Ah well, we complain a lot, but it doesn’t actually mean anything much because we’re having so much fun… if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be taking on extra work all the time!
      Thanks and I’m glad you like it! 😀
