Daisy’s eyes…they’re so big and round here. It’s kinda adorable!
So, I get the feeling Paulo’s going to start some form of conversation next page, but about what? Lucy? Rachel? Asking about Daisy herself? How she’s doing?
Or maybe he’ll rescind that statement of not needing help? Nothing huge there, but…something so small and simple would probably be a nice way for these two to interact.

Goddamn Daisy is adorable. xD

Paulo adores Daisy in a platonic manner, we know this. I wonder if he’ll ask about how she’s been doing. o3o

The fact that he is looking away from her and the Nokia in the last panel implies that he does not believe that himself and is lying to himself and to daisy.

Paulo I don’t think you got this. Take the help from Daisy. She’s an A+ student and she could bring you up a couple of grade levels if you pay attention to what she says. Paulo you could be very smart if you put your mind into it, but your attention span might be worse than mine and I constantly looked out the window to stare at birds. You know you want to talk to her, so it might be nice if you actually talked.

Comment ID #253674

Oh don’t be silly. The pages in Paulo’s textbook are written with Times New Roman size 10, while Daisy’s is written in Times New Roman size 9. It’s such a scandal.

I can’t wait to see what happens…i always felt like these two had great potential as friends and i hope we get to see that in action. ^^

I love Daisy so much! She is definitely one of my favorites along with Paulo 8-)

I just realised Daisy is rather like Lisa Simpson.
Short, pearl necklace, ‘intelligent’ one of the cast and criminally underused.

Daisy must be an idiot to need to study in high school. No offense guys but it was cake. All you had to do was listen in class and do your homework. I didn’t need to study until second semester of freshman year of college. Even then I only worked on school for a few hours here and there. Granted, I’m an engineer, but still.

I_Love_Lucy July 15, 2013, 5:18 PM EST.

Comment ID #253705

Is Daisy just oblivious as to what happened, why Paulo and everyone’s upset? Or is she just optimistic and things might change around? Or is she just always happy? Can’t wait for the next few pages, all my countless questions will be resolved!

Uhhh… just because you happen to have a better ability to retain information, it doesn’t make everyone else who actually works for their grades idiots. >_> that was pretty rude.

I’m sure this is not about DaisyxPaulo relation. And Paulo really need to pay attention to his study…

He’s gonna be pretty hollowed out for a while like Lucy at this rate.

Where is his mind? On the thought he had sex? On the loss of Lucy?

Paulo’s sex life so far:

Jessica, Rachel, Lucy (in a day dream), Rachel again.

Who want’s to bet Daisy has a moment of weakness soon here?

I highly doubt Daisy’s going to cheat on Abbey. It would be extremely out of character for her, even *with* Lucy leaving.

Tiny July 15, 2013, 8:39 PM EST.

daisy’s eyebrows are so distractingly uneven in the last panel

Nothing cheers up sad people like studying for mid-terms! Woot, woot!
I think Paulo is wondering if he should tell Daisy he’s all broken up over Lucy.
I find it a little funny how cheerful Daisy is being, despite how sad Paulo is.
Well, study away! Your future depends on those grades…I am sure.

For some humor, reminiscing on older storylines…

Paulo gets with a girl, can’t focus at school work.

Paulo gets girl’s ****** at him, suddenly BEST STUDENT EVER!

I love how Daisy’s tried to help Paulo, but unfortunately, his head’s elsewhere at the moment. Annnnd….. given the last two events in his life, not entirely surprising :(

(Yay, another Paulo/Daisy moment! :D)

I swear, if PauloxDaisy shipping happens in this comic, I’ll kill something.

@I_Love_Lucy she’s in accelerated classes. I didn’t study for those. I got C+’s.

Also, I know several people who’s parents simply have that sort of culture to get them into the habit of being absolutely sure they know everything about the subject matter before they ever step foot into the classroom. It’s a different level of achievement. The 4.3 GPA plan.
