Remember how I said I needed to be in bed by around 11, so I can get up at 5 and be properly rested? Well, I’ve been working on TONIGHT’S reading assignment since I got home around 7, and only now am I finished and heading to bed. Five chapters of some of the driest writing known to man. But, on the bright side, I now know just about every gross thing you can catch from eating food that’s been improperly handled! (Hint: many of them originate from poo. No joke.) (well, okay. it is poo, so it’s kind of a joke.) (but seriously.)

So, there’s NO WAY a comic is coming out tomorrow. Things do have sort of a bright spot, though. First off, the reading assignments are going to start tapering off – I only have two chapters to read tomorrow night, I think. And after next friday, Safety and Sanitation’s all done with, so no more of that FDA-regulated drivel.

The best course for me, as it stands, is that I figure I’m going to push to get at least two, preferrably three comics done during the weekend, when I can sort of think. That way, if I can manage to eke out two additional comics over the course of the entire week, I’m golden. I really, really, REALLY do not want to go down to a 3-per-week schedule. I mean, REALLY don’t. No. Can’t make me. So, I’m going to try to get my momentum with schoolwork, then start re-attacking the comic with renewed fervor. This DOES mean that while I’m not saying anything definately right now, the comic this week is uncertain. I honestly don’t KNOW for sure what tomorrow brings… but come the weekend, I’m going to be spending time getting ahead so I can really take this on. I’m getting really sick of my spotty update schedule. I’ve been stable for the better part of six years – you think I’m going to let a simple thing like an accelerated daily high-stress culinary school get me down? Shit no!

(As a side note, we recieved our utensil kits today. HOLY CRAP. I can see where a lot of our tuition money went to, let me tell you that. Perhaps I’ll try to get a picture of all of it over the weekend.
