The title of this post makes it pretty clear what this final new Dustinland comic of 2019 is about: New year’s resolutions! It’s weird. It’s been a long year, and sort of a shitty one for the world. Okay, not sort of — it’s been a fucking awful year for the world. Really terrible and depressing. My life though — not so bad. I did break my hand/arm a few times though, so that was shitty. And I’m dealing with some mid life crisis-y metaphysical kinda stuff, so there’s that. But overall, I didn’t get bombed, step on a landmine, or get implanted with a Chinese spy device, so I take that as a win.
Hope you can look past the crap and see things in the same light as I do, except without the blistering sarcasm and cynicism. See you next year, and thanks for all your support!
This week’s new Dustinland comic is right on time for Christmas! It’s about how hard it is to pick out presents as you get older.
Happy holidays everyone!
Oh and hey, if you still need a last minute gift… there’s always my book!
This week’s new Dustinland comic is about those times when your kid wakes you up screaming in the middle of the night. You always run to the rescue, but rescue isn’t always what’s needed…
I’ll give it to my kiddo in this case. He was getting over the flu.
This new Dustinland comic is about my upcoming 40th birthday, which I am totally not freaking out about. For realz.
You know, I already had two major life changes. 1. Becoming a parent. That one is an obvious one. 2. Becoming someone’s boss. That might be a bit surprising, but for me personally, I did feel like that was a major turning point for me — a sort of, “okay, no way to pretend I’m still a kid.” 40, you know, it’s significant, but I feel like I have already been in this stage for a while now, so it’s just a number to me.
But a fun number! A number worth celebrating. You know, after 30, birthdays just don’t seem to matter so might as well at least enjoy it every 10 years. So yay me. And after this, I’ll see you at 50.
