Yep, that special time of year has rolled around again–it’s the last day of school! I know I posted yesterday and all, but I still have to wrap things up before I turn my school-issued laptop in during seventh period today.
So, guys… it’s been an interesting year. I’d like to say that things went well–that I had a lot of fun learning how to drive, turning sixteen, and turning out another six installments in Shenanigans: A Life. And I did enjoy those things. But to forget the hard times–like almost getting in a car accident, having an awkward one-sided relationship (yes, it’s about time y’all knew about that), and failing to meet my goal of making a comic every month–to forget those hard times would be to forget half of the year itself.
I tend to mess around a lot on this blog, posting sporadically and really doing whatever my heart pleases. It might surprise a lot of you guys, but in real life, I’m very shy and I’m always very busy with piles of coursework. If I had the time to draw more, you guys know I would. But I never quite get everything done, this website included.
I’m not going to drag on for forever, but you get the point. I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the comic (using their real names) once again: Gunnar, Caleb, Alexa, and Maslin, among many others (including everyone from the last hiatus announcement). Because that’s exactly what this post is–an announcement. With the start of the summer comes the start of the annual SaL hiatus, and this year I happen to be taking on a job as a swimming instructor to boot.
However, I implore you not to despair! As with Coming Soon!, I have a lot in store for you guys over the next few months (I’ve got more than ten new images primed and ready to upload, in fact!). Dustlander Productions will be stronger than ever this summer, and I welcome the challenge. No, I accept it.
