"What Things?"

Long time no see!

I don't know where to start. These past couple of months, I've just been just worrying.

As an artist, I've always wanted to see the art of the European masters in person. I know that it's going to take me some time to take them in, so a short vacation definitely won't be enough; not to mention that traveling there from Hawaii can be very costly.

So as a solution that one of my close friends suggested, I could get certified in a TEFL program in Prague, teach English while staying there and also work on my art. I'll still have my online tutoring side gig as a back-up, just in case.

Which is what I'm doing right now!

Currently, it has been a very hectic few weeks. I'm focusing on finding solutions and reminding myself, as cheesy as it sounds, to trust in the universe, to reach out and ask for help, and to believe in myself. After all, worrying so much only got me a headache. :')

Back to the comic! The title was inspired by a dialogue in the movie Call Me by Your Name. It's the scene where Elio and Oliver stop by a statue in a town square. Elio talks about the history behind the statue, to which Oliver praises him:

Oliver: "Well, you seem to know more than anyone else around here.

Elio: "Well, if you only knew how little I really know about the things that matter."

Oliver: "What things that matter?"

Elio: "You know what things."
