Patreon! Also update on life & possible hiatus.

(c&p from tapas)

There's now a patreon! I mean there has been for a long time, but I kind of forgot about it. Anyhow, I don't want to put updates behind a pay wall so the patreon feed will be just extra content & even that rarely, as I think everyone would rather just have updates. However, if you feel like checking it out, that'd be great~

POSSIBLE HIATUS - Just paid 300 e worth of medical & utility bills(all the money I had saved for next months rent), I am completely broke and I will need to pay a shit ton next month as well+ I might end up getting evicted and my phone might be getting cut off. So, I'm having a panic attack right now but I'll see how this situation develops once I calm down and will confirm the hiatus when I can estimate how fucked over I am.

The medical bills are visits to the psychiatric ward (I'm undergoing psychotherapy) & psychiatric nurse & psychiatric visits for my anxiety and clinical depression + regular doctors appointments for a tumor inside of my sinus & rheumatism of the back, since readers on tap are not aware of my level of sick. Anyhow, that's about it.

As some of you have undoubtedly noticed my beautiful piece of modern art known as cringy a f custom layout blew up. It's due to the template I used not being supported anymore (I think), so I looked up a new layout and literally only changed the header image. In other words -> obvi not made by me.

I'll see if I can be bothered to tweak colours into some horrible pink flower crap again, probably not. this is how it's going to be from now on for the unforeseeable future. I know you guys will probably cry because NSE custom layouts have been the best ( who can forget the clovercalypse of 2012) and I'm sad too, but atleast this layout is pretty dank. Also pretty dark.

About Hiatus/End of said Hiatus

This is mainly just a check up thing

I'm going to school part time atm, still on sick leave from work & in constant money troubles with medical bills and I'm undergoing like once a week check ups at a psychiatric ward until they decide if they let me get psychotherapy for free (it was recommended by uhm... an ability check physical therapist? I underwent a month long exam period at a ward where they checked me every few days for my ability to take care of myself and stuff like that, I dunno if it actually has a name or even exists in other languages) so yeah. Stuff's harsh but I'll try to do pages when I can.

ANYWAY. Main point:

Things not okay to comment about:

-Long breaks between updates, i.E "I am so sad this comic is dead" etc. The comic is not dead if I don't specifically say so. Comments like that make me super stressed and causes anxiety which again causes me to dread updating and it just basically adds to the amount of time the comic isn't getting updated. Not that there have been any those kind of comments lately, but just as a precaution.

Things okay to comment about:

everything else. fly like an eagle. be free.

The new beginning

This is re-written and drawn version from my previous comic, also named NSE. The characters have been sightly altered to be more realistic (I hope) and so has the story. Added some new characters too. All this has made the story strech a bit, so prepare for a quite a long run people :)

I have nothing else to say for now, I hope to see people who read the last take on the story liking the new version.
