As Soon as We Get Home

black and white, cartoon, line art, coloring book, CASSANDRA, Once the bra and skinny jeans come off, we're in for the day, full stop.

The relief is unmatched, isn't it? Ditching those restrictive fashion staples for something infinitely more comfortable, typically involves an oversized t-shirt and fuzzy socks. It's like our bodies immediately sigh in gratitude, and we can finally breathe and move freely around our personal sanctuary. This ritual is more than changing clothes; it's a declaration of personal time, a sacred boundary from the outside world that yells, "Here, I'm at ease; here, I'm me." No apologies, no discomfort, just pure self-care and unapologetic comfort—our own cozy cocoon until it's time to face the world again.

Next Time, a Selfie

text, cartoon, sketch, comics, drawing, Next time, I'm just going to take a selfie, because then I know it'll look like me, at least.

***

Whether it's a wonky caricature from a street artist or a well-intentioned sketch by a friend, nothing quite captures the essence of me like my own selfie. There's a certain charm in the imperfect art produced by others, but why risk the exaggerated proportions and accidental offense? A selfie is a safe haven of self-expression, where the angle, lighting, and filter are under my complete control. Plus, there's always the reassuring option to retake it fifty times until I get the perfect shot that says, "Yep, that's me!"
