Angst - Adulthood by lizleeillustration Angst - Adulthood by lizleeillustration
So I've been meaning to do this for about 6 months... but it took about that long for me to muster the personal strength to do it, believe it or not. Turning 30 was really hard for me, heh. Might as well embrace it with a comic! 30 also happens to mark the 10th year of Angst, so... yay!  I hope you like it, and here's to the young at heart. 

Comments are appreciated =) 

Markers and photoshop. ^_^

Congrats!!!! if you need a drink or venting time, please let me know. I hit the 30 11 months ago, and not over it. Not dealing with it in any positive kind of light. In all honesty the whole adulthood thing kinda sucks.
But cheers to you my dear! Angst is still the best therapeutic comic out there, it always makes me smile.
PS. Loving the comic completely, but then again, I always liked your style of writing.

Heya lady, long time no talk. I know we`ve been saying this for a while, but YES, we definitely should hang out and catch up (and vent) sometime soon, lol. 
I'm so glad you still read angst. I can't tell you how much that means to me. THANK YOU. And hugs, hugs hugs. I miss ya!

I rather like being in my 30's now over almost any age I was before.

I can rent cars, people stop calling me 'kid', if I want to do something ridiculous and be a professional writer, nobody can go "oh but you don't understand the world". 

And this is the 10th year of Angst? Holy crap we've known each other a long time.

While I haven't known you the whole time of Angst I... no, wait, I think I have! That was 2004! That means... o_O Wow, The other part about 30, you can start measuring things in decades instead of months and years!

This is a good way of looking at it, hah. I'll try to keep that in mind. And yeah, we HAVE known each other for a long time, lol. Being on DA for so long is quite the milestone too!

And that's where you actually gain boobs out of it. I think it applies to anybody, even those that seem like they have a plan. There's something about the way we are brought up that makes us think "Adulthood" solves problem. Magically. And before you know, BAM! You're an adult, you have a car, a not-so-stable job, and bills to pay, and you still watch morning cartoons. And you're still hoping for the day you'll discover your superpowers.

Don't sweat it, most people that have kids now have an excuse to watch cartoons without feeling guilty. I don't know where the "serious adults" comes from in all honesty. As if everybody has their sh*t together around you ;)

10 years of Angst? No way. Maybe it doesn't seem so long because I've been watching you for even longer. Crazy.

I know you have, and you're the best. Indeed, I've been drawing angst since my college days so... it might actually be longer than 10 years, but it's been 10 years since the "good" versions of the comic were done.

Pft. At least you got boobs out of the deal. I'm the same size in that department as I was at 15: big enough in the ribcage and small enough in boob size that no major bra manufacturer thinks my combination is humanly possible, apparently, and the one company that does has decided that those weird women don't want to have sexy attractive pretty grown up underthings! Plain. Jane. Blah.

I'm turning 30 in September and I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. I still don't feel like a grown up even though all of my friends are married with kids of their own now.

Yay. :sarcasticclap:

Don't worry, you're not alone. Bra manufacturers are the spawn of evil all around. I can't find bras to save my life, and if I do, they're over 100 bucks. 

And about turning 30 well... I'm not sure how to sugarcoat it. It was really hard on me personally, but that's because I'm a negative little bugger. You might handle it way more gracefully. And for godsake, don't worry about kids. I'm in the same boat though. Everyone's going about reproducing all around and I'm just sitting here like "cartoons are awesome". 

So yeah, do it at your own pace and don't worry is all I can say. ;)

I'm basically the same. My friends are all about parenting techniques and birthday parties and I'm "So I just got another colorist job, but this time it's dancing fruit instead of alligators!"

I have no desire to biologically have children... like... ever. lol The most I'd do is adopt a kid that's like 12-24 months. I'm adopted, so I'm a bit of a fan. I WOULD like a REAL relationship, though. I keep telling my parents that whoever I end up with better not have that macho male MUST PASS ON THE GENES RAWR!! thing going on because if he does, he'll be sorely disappointed!
