What exactly is this

It’s the truth. I’ll see the world and think of how it’d look as a comic. A real-life circumstance could also make a funny comic. These are the thoughts that run through my mind. Life in panels. Life in sequential art.

This summer, I turned these thoughts into reality. (Or, more accurately, reality into poorly drawn cartoons.) I went on a 6-week exchange program to Germany, and blogged about it here.

So I love comics. That much is clear. As a first post on a blog, however, proper self-introductions are in order.

So that’s who I am. Now, this is what I’m doing:

I’m Vy. 18 years old, Vietnamese-American, about to start my freshman year in college.

In two days, I’ll be moving up to the grand ol’ city of Boston to attend Northeastern University.

Goals in life: unknown.

Future career: unknown.

Major: Biology (but subject to change.)

You could say I’m just another kid on the brink of adulthood, unsure what to do with their life, stuck between maturity and the desire to dress up in Harry Potter robes.

It’ll be chaotic. It’ll be stressful. It’ll be awkward. It’ll be documented here.

And that’s what this blog is all about.

    I missed your comics. I love em. You're humorous and educational all at the same time, so great. ❤ I'm looking forward to reading this blog this year! 🙂

    • Haha, that’s not actually my sister… that’s supposed to be me, kicking myself! Because, um, I tend to make fun of myself. And apparently I talk to myself a lot. Hmm. You’ll know it’s my sister if she has a ponytail and no freckles! 😀 (Quote my sister: “Why do you always draw me with a ponytail?! I don’t even wear a ponytail that often!)

  2. Dude, you are amazing. And i’m totally stalking you… I mean following your blog again. 🙂 Seriously, I wish I could blog about my freshman year in a witty and comical (get it? :D) manner. But that second to last line right there? Story of my life.

    You’ll be awesome Vy. Good luck, and if you need to be awkward with someone, you know where to skype me!

      Hey, if you wanted to blog, you’re certainly capable of it! You have the ability, absolutely!
      Hahaha, let’s skype and be awkward together!! I know I’mma have plennnnnty of awkward moments…

  3. Just wanted to say that I followed your other blog, and I love how you write and draw small comics for your entries 🙂 It’ll be interesting to hear about college life in the U.S., since I only really know about high school life over there ^^
