When the Snow Melts
While all the other seniors are eager to graduate high school, Mysha isn't. She can't help but want to return to the days when the end of the school year meant long days of just playing with friends. Now all she has to look forward to is AP exams, leaving her friends for college, and job hunting. Torn between playing in the snow on the last "snow days" of her life and being present in the moment, Mysha struggles to accept that she must grow up or be left behind.
"When the Snow Melts" started out as a simple comic idea that I foolishly expanded on. It was a reflection on my feelings about how my friends felt about the constant snow versus how I felt. Now that I'm out of college, I actually relate to Mysha's anxieties even more. This story is ultimately about learning to cope with the world we live in.
