  1. I very much agree with this. I do feel like a 16 year old uncool queer, but with drinking tolerance of my colleges women’s basketball team(some of those women during my time there really just knew how to drink).

  2. I feel this comic. A lot of us do. Whenever I feel really cool, it’s like a joke. Or like I’m being fake.
    But y’know what? You are hella rad, and those who get to know you are fortunate. :)

  3. I love your comics because they’re so relatable. I’m glad I’m not the only one who is an awkward 16 year old in my head.

  4. Ugh yeah, Junior High crippled me self-esteem wise. High school actually built me back up as a self-realised geek and nerd, and that was where I found confidence and social power. But those early experiences never really leave us, and I still find myself completely stymied by sudden overwhelming self-doubt and awkwardness at the very worst moments. And I’m always, ALWAYS, self-conscious, even when I tell myself I’m not and I don’t care what other people think. I ALWAYS CARE, and fear the worst. :/
