I’m taking another vacation from most of the internet. I keep sketching out all these ideas and saying, “It’d be cool if I drew this picture and, damn, I really want to make these sprites, but I don’t have time.” There are too many distractions and I need to cut them out and start doing some serious damage. There will probably be an Illmosis.net update, a ScrollBoss update there and some Tumblr posts before then, but I’m kicking most of this stuff to the curb for a while. So I’m putting up the unofficial Apollo Kids WORK sign and slidin’ off like King VItamin until Friday the 31st, Halloween.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.
I will never not reblog this
"…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."
As you all know, it’s October. And this is a very special month for me, as I always celebrate it by having a month-long horror movie fest. Now, since I have taken Felix’s advice and began writing full-time, I figured what better way to make Horrorfest better than…
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

The inspiration beyond that story was that I was talking with Len Kaminski, and Len said something along the lines of “You know what you should do? You should do a story about one of those big world-shattering crises, and make it all about one poor sap who’s caught up in the middle of it and his life is all shot to hell.”
I don’t know if what came out is what Len had in mind, but when he said it, the whole story just kind of unfolded in my head. It only took a day to write, too.
Sometimes stories come easily. This was one of the easiest I’ve ever written, and one of the best I’ve ever done, I think. Like magic.
