Calf Muscle

How does flexing my muscles in the mirror give me muscle aches? I seem to have reached a whole new level of pathetic.

Our Jjimjilbang Experience

After finishing my BA in the summer, G and I traveled to Japan and Korea. It was our first time in Seoul and we had a really great trip, and one of the most exciting parts of our stay was our trip to the jjimjilbang -- the public bathhouse! It was quite different from the sento/onsen in Japan, but we loved it and if we lived in Korea we would most defintely be regular jjimjilbangers! I was too lazy to draw everything we did at the bathhouse (it had 6 floors, including many kiln saunas, a cafeteria, nap rooms, table tennis rooms, so on and so forth), but the scrub was definitely the highlight.

We just got back from our very much needed, very long holiday in Japan and Korea! We had a superawesome time and I'm already back to making poop jokes, so all is good in the world. G is definitely special somebody, seeing how is able to tolerate me for such a long period of time without a break!

One more month!

Ehm, you're probably tired of hearing this, but I'm sorry for the lack of updates! One more month to go until the final presentation and exhibition of my BA thesis project ... Endspurt -- here we go!

I haven't had much time for comics lately because all of my time and energy is being used up for my BA thesis project. Here's my favorite drawing from this past weekend!

G's vocabulary consists of "not bad" and "not good". The other day he described something as being "not uncute," which I think was meant to be a compliment...

Happy Easter! Hooray long weekend!

By the way, I also have an Instagram account, in case that's an easier way for you to keep up with the comics! You can find me at: https://www.instagram.com/bringmebonsai/

The New Beauty and the Beast

I couldn't think of anyone who would want to go see the new Beauty and the Beast with me, so I went to the cinema alone for the first time in ... possibly ten years! It was a wonderfully awkward and entertaining experience.

Mimi on the inside

Whether it's good music or bad music, songs that you listened to when you were a teenager seem to be deeply ingrained in you.

Manly musk

I tried out some free face cream samples "for men" and it was as if I'd smeared cheap sport deodorant on my face. I don't even know what they put in it so make it smell like that, but I really hate this "manly" smell. Why can't they just make everything odorless? I really doubt anyone wants to smell that on their face all day. Blargh!

Want to...?

So ... part of the reasons why I was so MIA last year was because this happened!

I accidentally (I swear it was an accident!) popped the question and as shocked and flustered as he was, G said yes! After some bureaucratic hurdles and a lot of preparation, we tied the knot in Berlin. :) I think I'll be posting more wedding-related comics now and then.

We might die so I should mentally prepare myself for it

Usually, my thought at the slightest bit of turbulence on the airplane is, "We might die, so I should mentally prepare myself for it." Hey, I'm just being realistic, right?

All those comments

Poor G! Don't worry, I wouldn't leave you even if it were for a million comments.

Sunday Walk

We finally got some snow in Berlin -- it's finally starting to feel like proper winter.

Leg for Dinner

I ate my own leg (and some other people's legs) for dinner. It was a bloody, gruesome dream, but I was still sensible enough to keep blood stains off the couch.

Everbody died

Hello world, Happy New Year! Contrary to popular belief -- I am still alive and well and living in Berlin (as is G)! I know no one will believe me if I say I'll start posting more regularly ("We've heard that one before!"), but I'm going to give it another go. A lot has happened in the past year(s) and I do want to make a few comics about it.

Anyway, Christmas and New Years came and went as usual. I wore my awesome R2D2 t-shirt from Uniqlo to Rogue One, but despite my enthusiasm I couldn't remember any of the character names from the movie. Either my memory's gotten worse, or those darn Star Wars names keep getting more complicated with each movie.
