Dude, you made me ugly cry.
This one hits hard. Sending y'all so much support in fighting against executive dysfunction. Some days are better than others, but sometimes it's so real, and, and-- thank you Nate for helping in feeling seen, again; you're not alone - we're not alone - battling this.
Of course this comic would hit the day I drag all my plants outside for sun and water because WHO EVEN KNOWS how long it’s been since I cared for them properly
I really needed this today. I purposely took a day off today because I just have been feeling like I have been failing at everything lately and I just need to take care of me.
When I say “failing”, I mean as in not finishing assignments for work when they are supposed to be done and what not. As a creative too, it just feels frustrating when I have a “ good” week and just the following week I struggle.
Thanks again for pointing out that we aren’t failures and it’s ok to “ fail” too since we can keep working through it all.
the strip about you making progress actually got me to reply to my pending messages. truly, just thank you so much. I'm proud of your pothos, too.
This hit waaay too close to home 😭😭😭
Oh no, you’ve seen my house and brain 😂 this is wonderful and also so true
damn I needed to hear this today <3
Pothos is a plant that can bounce back from just about anything. Especially if you take cuttings and root them in water!
Well, this hits pretty close to home, I must admit. Thank you for this!
Incidentally, I have a pothos, too! She's gone through rough times, but she pulled through, and now she's green and vibrant and healthy, and I'm genuinely proud of her.
I feel this too hard down to my raggedy boston fern that's been hanging on for years
This is perfectly timed for me (and it seems for many of us here!) <3 Also, it's beautiful. And I just realized I watered outside but not my indoor plants yesterday. We all thank you :)
YES! Once again, you show us the possibility! Buried under a pile of clothes or dishes, shriveled at the edge of a leaf . . .
Dammnn this hit hard. That last line... I think it might get it tattooed.
Also, I stress so much over those poor plants in every QE episode, like, do they give the heroes a guide on how to look after them?? They can't possibly be all alive still.
Mood, I've got some spider plants that are generally surviving but they've got a whole lot of unhappy leaf tips. (I've got it hooked up with a little auto watering thing which helps it at least stay alive but doesn't do enough to make it thrive so I have to make sure to give it deeper waterings now and then which I don't always remember.)
I have a pothos that has dealt with literal decades of alternating attention and neglect and is still semi-thriving. honestly it seems like it does much better when I ignore it than when I pay attention and try to help. meanwhile, the bag of potting soil that's been sitting on the porch for two years which I meant to use to repot the pothos trimmings (which have been doing their valiant best) has, completely without any intervention on my part, sprouted its own plant. I think it's a blackberry, but I also think I might have to stick it in a pot and keep it when I finally get around to cleaning the porch and throwing the old potting soil away. I'm sure there's some kind of metaphor in there that I don't want to examine too closely. also I'm finally getting started on my own gender affirmation surgery, with some credit to you and your comics which have made me Feel Things, so thank you. <3
