  1. Wisdom Bitch has a lot to think about.

  2. Me hoping that life can be just a little simpler.

  3. I live in a city where seagulls are not harbingers of any good tidings.

    1. San Francisco?

      1. Mr. Potato Patato Von Spudsworth III

        Literally any city.

  4. The seagulls are coming inland. A storm is coming.

  5. Just chill and enjoy some nice octopus pie.

  6. This scene makes me think of the song Sunshine by Atmosphere.

    Couple of advil, relax and chill
    At a standstill with how bad I feel
    I think I need to smell fresh air
    So I stepped out the back door and fell down the stairs
    The sunlight hit me dead in the eye
    Like it's mad I gave half the day to last night
    My bad sight made me trip on my ass right into that patch of grass like that's life
    All of a sudden, I realize something
    The weather is amazing, even the birds are bumpin
    Stood up and took a look and a breath
    And there's that bike that I forgot that I possessed
    Never really seen exercise as friendly
    But I thing something's telling me to ride that ten speed
    The brakes are broken, it's alright
    The tires got air and the chain seems tight
    Hopped on and felt the summertime,
    It reminds me of one of them Musab lines like

    [Chorus 2X]

    Sunshine, sunshine, it's fine
    I feel it in my skin, warming up my mind,
    Sometimes you gotta give in to win,
    I love the days when it shines, whoa let it shine

  7. a new morning can be all you need to make a new start. I'm so proud of Eve, she's come a long way!

  8. Catharsis coffee is best coffee.

  9. Dat hair tho. So accurate.

  10. I think she just figured out that she's going to be just fine.

  11. So beautiful! Reminds me so much of a day trip I took to Fells Point under similar circumstances.

  12. that's RIGHT eve you BETTER think about that future

  13. Closure!

  14. Is anyone else worried that next update will be the final comic for Octopus Pie? If so, I expect it'll be a long and beautiful page 🙁

    1. Don't worry, it's not. Meredith has said that there are about 6 months left.

      1. Phew! Where did she say that?

      2. So basically January?

  15. It's up to us to figure things out, and to move on. Good luck Eve 🙂

  16. Wonderful introspection!

  17. I'm feeling a lot of pain via Eve right now. It seems as if she's become more vulnerable and alone over the past few arcs, especially in this latest strip; her friends are gone and there's nothing left for her to return to from her past, not even Greg. Didn't anyone else get the sense that Eve felt a pang of loneliness or abandonment with waking up alone on the couch? Yes its a relief they didn't sleep together, but at the same time if Greg was just staying friendsies, he could've said goodbye to her as she walked herself out the door, grabbed a last cup of coffee, etc. Well, maybe he had work or Greg felt too awkward still about Eve. I'm just saying, this feels like the fifth time I see in a comic strip Eve by herself and not happy.

    1. I dunno, I think she woke up with the sunrise, really early, because no-curtains. And Greg is still blissfully sleeping it off in his becurtained bedroom, through no fault or intention of his own.

      I've been both Eve and Greg in this situation, so I don't begrudge either of them. Though when I was the Eve I didn't have the breakup-entire-place-in-the-universe-questioning going on, so I tend to bustle around cleaning the apartment and making breakfast.

    2. She left before Greg woke up. This is common ritual for friends waking up hungover in their friend's apartment,I would know 🙂

  18. Beautiful page

  19. What a beautiful day to sit and reflect.

  20. I'm going through a bad breakup right now, and these strips are really hitting me hard. My ex is so much like Park too. Not intentionally malicious, but cruel with his selfishness and totally unaware. I have never been more keenly aware of how emotionally accurate this comic is.

    1. I just red your comment and I just wanted to say something nice like don't give up
      I'm not an anglophone it's difficult to find the right words so I say: carry on you're not alone!
      Plus you have such a cool name 🙂

  21. "Who knows how you'll see the world tomorrow?"

  22. Hot coffee on an early, autumn dawn = heaven 😀

    It's a beautiful day, Eve. A beautiful, Park-free day. Hopefully she takes this crossroads as a chance to stay away from romance for a while and get reacquainted with herself. Being single and a bit lonely isn't the end of the world.

  23. I think I'm long overdue for a little introspection of my life. It would do me some good to figure out my source of depression and sense of stagnation, see the good of my life right now and find solutions to the bad.

    Thanks, Greg.
