for a house...

I finally got my own place.

The duck nestles me.

I am an ugly duckling...

that became a slug

rather than a swan.

Just an ugly duckling...

Almost there!

Just a bit further!

I need some protein, guys.


Freeze. Don't move.

It'll be over quick and harmless.

How can you all be so selfish!

Shut up bird!

Damn bird!

I'm eating it.

I can do this.

Kentucky Fried Chicken,

'Finger-lickin' good'.

Thanks for droppin' in.

Damn, that's hot.

Hot! Hot!

Birds taste better than fish.

Perhaps evolution is the process

of becoming tastier.

So bored.

Nothing else like it.

The perfect boredom.

'Blue bear' went shopping


Chanel pumps.

Save as

I bought 'em at the mall.

Aren't they pretty?

There's no need to go

outside my room.

With a few clicks,

everything can be mine, easily.

It doesn't matter

if it's real or not.

The replies on my site

decide that.

Age, looks, jobs...

Anything's possible.

Are you awake?

Do you need anything?



I'll be a little late, today.

Make sure you eat, okay?

Though I haven't been out

of my room in 3 years...

I keep strict rules here.

First, I get up

after Dad leaves at 8 a.m.

- Bye, dear.

- I'll be home late.

I get ready, then go outside.

I put on 3000 steps

on the pedometer before 9 a.m.

I go to work at 9.

I clean.

I wait to go to the bathroom

till mom leaves at 12!

I put on 6,000 steps to digest.

After some fresh air...

Ah...fresh air.

I plan a new life again

and work at self-improvement.

After finishing off at work,

I pursue my hobby.

Taking pictures of the moon.

I take pictures of the moon...

cuz there's no one there.

When there's no one,

you can't feel lonely.

Then I put on the last 1000

on my pedometer.

It's not for health reasons.
