WELCOME!

WELCOME! This blog is a personal project I started in August 2011 with the goal of drawing and posting an illustrated status message a day - I haven't stopped since. On weekday mornings, I get up, draw a cartoon, and post whatever I can manage to before going to work. I began cartooning to find my voice. Still searching, but I've learned that the attempt is everything. What's your status message today?

Single Girl, Asian Daughter

Disclaimer: This is not an accurate representation of my parents. But they are Asian, so I used them as a reference :)

"This is not an accurate representation of my parents. But they are Asian"

Are they Taiwanese?

This sounds about right. And by mid 30, forget men, just have a child. Don't worry about marriage, just have a child. By late 30s, YOU ARE GOING TO DIE ALONE! that sums it up.

Hi Connie, I saw your comic on Reddit today. Just wanted to say great work and keep it up!

Cheers,
Tom

It reminds me of a joke when we boys were teasing each other in the university. One boy asked the other:"What qualifications does one girl need to become your girlfriend?" He answered:"Only 2 qualifications, only 2. One, she has to be female. Two, she has to be alive." ——by Ron

It's better to be single than married to a wrong guy, 寧缺勿濫。Love your awesome cartoons, keep up the good work.

So is frightful true; I'm seeing this play out with my parents and my older brother. Oh, and I'm Taiwanese too. :|

I particularly like the pitch fork and parents in the second screen.

Connie! Thank you. Hits home. My Indian parents are exactly as portrayed! 30s and being single is a disaster. Thanks for actually putting this down on paper. Love it.

Very good to see the comments on this one. Great work Connie. You have distilled a complex idea down very elegantly.

Love your work! Came here because of this comic, which we've been sharing like crazy on FB bc it's TRUE. Showed my parents, they laughed, and asked when were they getting their grandson... sigh.

There is always eharmony.

this would be PERFECT without the "s" in "needs" in the final panel

So true! I happen to be Taiwanese-American, and it's so definitely true. Though, in my case, my parents were / are slightly delayed. Imagine the "teen years" frame copied for the "early 20s" and "mid 20s" frames (professional school and all that). Then, the "early 20s" frame for "late 20s." And finally the "late 20s" frame for the "after 30." I, being over 30 now, only hear, "When are you getting married? Go find a boyfriend." *sigh*
