Back to the School of Nursing
Yellow head
Back to college today after many, well deserved, weeks off. We're in class for the next fortnight, after which, we go on placement. I'll be going back to the psychiatric hospital on yet another of the acute wards. This particular ward has something of a difficult reputation around the hospital for not being an easy place to work, due to staff friction. However, I've talked to many other student nurses who've already done a placement there, and they've all enjoyed it. So who knows?

I'm glad to be doing another acute ward so soon after the last one. I've got a great deal of experience in acute, and it's what I intend to do once I qualify.

Today I've been somewhat irked and generally disgruntled. I recently began to see another student on the course, referred to here as Mrs A, who I'd struck up a strong friendship with. However, I just can't seem to get this woman to take me seriously. I know she's got a lot of other issues in her life, and maybe I am trying to push things along too quickly, but I can't help but feel upset that things haven't developed further. I really need to clarify things between us, so there is no doubt in my mind what she wants. I need to move on beyond this as quickly as possibly.

Now that I'm back in college, it inevitably means that I can't spend as much time on the cartooning work as I would like. I'm stuck three pages (or so) from the end of the current strip, and I'm unlikely now to be able to finish it before the weekend.

There's been much frustration for me today. Not only that, but I've got a headache.

quick note - liked the comic link you sent - colouring was very lush - was it only half done previously, as I recall the pull back from the jungle to the potted plant before - but not the pages that followed for some reason... maybe you showed it to me when were at a convention.. or I was a little tiddly - or I'm just getting more woolly
intrigued by the start of that western strip as i don't recall that - is that brand new?
as for my own cartooning - I'm slowly scanning & prepping sketchbook pages & I seem to be on the 'home straight' with that 'hand' strip... who knows... I may have comics out soon.. weird...

it's frustrating that life just gets in the way - but we'd be dull without it.

I rewrote the Jungle strip. The Gargax monster scenes are all new, as previously the story came to too much of an abrupt end.

That western page is page six of that strip. I'm up to page eight now, which is the start of the gunfight scene. The original version was in Inkling years ago.

Hi Darryl, great to hear you're drawing again. I confess I lost track of your Open Diary quite some time ago but I've bookmarked you now so I'll check in from time to time. Keep well.
