Disappointment

This is a personal piece of mine that I wrote in a very dark state of mind a few nights ago, while seriously thinking about finally getting treatment for my depression and anxiety. I wanted to illustrate my thought processes when I am at my lowest possible low. Reflecting on those feelings and anxieties I create, and how I look at those thoughts with a clearer mind.  

I’ve struggled a lot with myself over the past few months, going back and forth about how I should go about treatment. I’ve always been scared of seeking help about my depression and anxiety, and I kind of hoped that I would somehow teach myself how to cope on my own. But as of late, it seems to have only gotten worse. And with that realization, it hit me hard. Looking back on what I had written, I thought it would really help me overcome my fears and my anxieties about seeking out treatment by expressing it through my art. 

I finished it in about 6 hours, without drafting, creating thumbnails or planning. Just did it all straight on the computer, so I apologize if anything looks rushed or things don’t quite flow well together. I didn’t change much in how I wrote this note to myself that night, so once again, I apologize if some sentences are awkward. I felt like it would be powerful to leave it as it was when I was in that state.

This piece has a lot of personal meaning to me, and I hope that sharing it will help me overcome the obstacles I need to face as I seek help.

Dylan, you are one of my best friends. I love you so much and I’ve known this is how you feel for a long time, but it still makes me hurt inside knowing you are feeling these terrible things. I’ve always tried my absolute best to be there for you and help you in anyway I can, even if I didn’t really do a good job or know what I was doing. But I swear that for as long as you want me there, I will be there to love and support you.

But let me tell you something; you are an incredibly strong person. You deal with so much in your life and from your own emotions, but you do amazingly brave things like post this comic about your personal battle with anxiety and depression. And on top of that you still smile and laugh through things, help others when they are suffering, and over all be an amazing human being. That thats an amazing amount of strength, far more then most people have in them. Your art work is amazing, you are fantastically kind, hilarious and fun person to know and we all love you for it.

You will never, EVER be a dissapointment to me. You make me so proud of you and remind me every day, just how lucky I am to know you.

THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.



Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 


Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 
Well, Edgeworth?



While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)


WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!


As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the stickers on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?
