CLOSED WILL BE MOVED TO BI-MONTHLY UNTIL JUNE

IF YOU FIND THIS TOO LONG, CHECK THE BOLDED SUMMARY AT THE BOTTOM

Im sorry guys, I wish it didnt have to come to this, but I'm being overwhelmed by my career. Probably most of you dont know, but Im studying medicine and while its not as hard as people picture it, studuing takes most of my freetime (if you can consider this free time)

And thats where I wanted to get. I'll try to explain this quick: medschool is dividen into two halves: a basic sciences half and a clinics half. In basic science you go to lectures and study like a slave, while in clinics you go to the hospital and do "shifts" with real doctors to learn how its done.

Right now Im at my last semester of basic sciences, which is known locally as "the filter". Why? Because the failure rate is the highest among all semesters in the career and its when you have the most work. Starting next semester, I'll start clinics which demands a lot less time that basic sciences, so I'll be able to still get good grades, have a life and draw a page every week.

Please try to understand that my future comes first. I still have a bunch of backup strips, but not enough to make it through the semester updating weekly since I'm not drawing new strips anymore because of the lack of time. So instead of going into a hiatus, I've decided to take it more slowly.

To make it short: Closed Gate will update every two weeks until June the 5th because Im way too busy with med school to update weekly, even with Backup strips. After June the 5th things will go back to normal.

Im really sorry guys. After June everything will go back to normal.

Cheers from LatAm

It's all good :D
