  1. this resonated a lot with me; I’m grateful that the majority of my friends aren’t in a similar position as me, but hearing about how they HAVE TO attend all these family celebrations is a bit grating when you’re estranged from a good chunk of your family. thank you for so accurately describing the extra emotional stress that comes with the holidays.

  2. oh, i love this and you so much. i look forward to spending a lot of non-holiday time together in december and for the rest of all time. <3

    also — are you…making fun of…yourself?! in this comic?! about sappy love junk?! i am LOLing in the coffee shop. LOVE YOU.

  3. “You can process and be okay with stuff, and still wish things were different.”

    This is a great and profound truth.

  4. This is an incredibly beautiful comic, Alyssa! I love all of it, but the last part about what you’re *not* thankful for made me shout with agreement – and cackle out loud about Basketball Jesus. Well done.
