Hello there, students,
So when I promised an update by Wednesday, that was because I was promised an update by Wednesday. Well, that update finally arrived, and here we are.
I and many others often say that artists never stop being students, that we are always learning, failing, and succeeding on the road to making the best work that we can. Sometimes, however, this status as a student is more literal than other times. Starting next week, your “dean” will take up the mantle of student again, and I will be taking classes at the Digipen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Washington. This is an idea that I’ve had for a long time, and the opportunity to pursue it is a great joy.
Now, this does not come without a downside. I am not promising anything with this post, but rather laying out the possibility now so that that it does not come as a surprise later. I need my tenure at Digipen to succeed, and as such, it will demand my time and attention above most anything else. That said, I love working on the CAoM, and I am thankful for the love and interest you all express in the ongoing adventures of our musicians. With this in mind, it is possible, depending on my workload, that I will have to cut back to one update a week. Again, this is not a promise that it will or will not happen. I wish to be transparent about the possibility.
What I will promise is that I will do everything I can to keep the Academy ongoing through my period at the Institute. It is my longest running project to date, and I have far too much planned to let anything happen to it. I appreciate your understanding and all of your support for the Academy, and I will update you as things progress. There should not be any interference with the update schedule as I move, so please look forward to an update on Saturday.
Esuka, Dean of Undergraduates, CAoM
Hello there, students,
Unfortunately, I do not have a comic to post tonight. I spent all day traveling, and while I thought I would be getting in tonight with time to work, that was sadly not the case (I in fact get home late tomorrow). I do not like having missed an update so soon after taking a break, but sometimes things just don’t go the way we like.
I am sorry for this delay, and there will be a comic on Saturday. In related news, I promised an announcement by the end of the month that did not happen. This is because the facts are still being finalized, and I do not wish to tell you of something when it turns out to not be the case. As I have been told, I will have the information I need by Wednesday, and I will make the post accordingly.
Thank you everyone for your patience, and I hope you have a wonderful day.
-Esuka, Dean of Undergraduates.
Also, the lesson learned here? Don’t let drowsy Vinyl talk.
