Wow mike if you put your phone down and stopped texting whats her face once in a while you might have realized paulo didn’t have his books from the beginning and could have said something. Now paulo is going to have to share a book with mike and sit next to him there faces ever so close as they read the work making paulo totally not feel any more gay than he already is.

Mike has been looking at his phone a lot and base on his face in the second panel I have a feeling something might be off. Maybe something bad is happening on Sandy’s end of things? I’m curious about that now.

On the main topic I wonder how this study session will go. Since Paulo is still worried about being seen as gay I wonder what he’ll do to make things even more awkward.

I want the future predictions from @Bacon to become true with the bottom of my heart.

but anyway judging by how mike has been looking all goopy at his phone something’s probably wrong with sandy. i wonder if this’ll play a part in this chapter somehow. if not, it’s nice foreshadowing and I’m expecting to see her again soon! :D we still know so little about her, after all. let’s develop all characters while lucy is gone since i have a feeling that wouldnt happen once shes back and steals the spotlight. :x

I’m pretty sure Mike and Paulo would never be an item ever due to Sandy. If Mike wouldn’t even go after Lucy what makes you think he’d go for Paulo?

Mike isn’t gay and never will be. If anything Mike will end up with Lucy because Mike’s long distance relationship with Sandy won’t last. Sandy isn’t even a main character so it’s obvious they won’t be together forever.

BlackStealth08 April 10, 2015, 2:35 PM America/New_York.

Comment ID #296968

While I think you make a good point about Sandy not being a main character, I think their relationship will last because of that: right now Sandy is nothing more than ‘the girlfriend’. Her sole purpose in the comic is just for Mike to be with someone. And as Mike seems to be one of the few people capable of having a relationship for more than a week in this comic I don’t think he will leave/cheat on Sandy. And from the few glimpses of Sandy we can see, she feels the same way as Mike does.

Also, WHY DOES MIKE HAVE TWO CUSHIONS? Is Sandy coming over? :D

Comment ID #296970

I just thought about this actually. How come paulo hasn’t failed classes and doesn’t have to redo a school year yet? I see him always goofing of when it comes to school. Either paulo is super smart so he doesn’t have to put any effort in schoolwork (which already in the comic implies he’s not i think, he’s more streetsmart not booksmart like daisy) or the school tests standards in the bcb are really low when someone as lazy and not so booksmart like paulo could still pass. Would be quite awkward if paulo had to redo a year and ended up with jazmine as his classmate XD

Amaya, matt and mike are very patient and forgiving of paulo in this chaper btw. All three had encountered his misplaced rudeness in this chapter but are quite chill about it. Mike, when somebody pushes me i would not have helped them later with their schoolwork (only if they would have apologized). I hope mike is really over it and doesn’t crop it up inside and then explodes later. But i have good hopes for mike :)

The fact that the comic is done in watercolor is really cool and adds a unique feel to it, differentiating it from most webcomics. (It also displays I decent amount of skill, in my opinion- watercolor is kinda difficult to work with, I think.) Personally, though, I think the comic was better when they didn’t look so chibi-like, ascetically speaking anyway. They look too young for the types of situations they are going through. Over all, though, I think BCB is pretty good. I’ve been reading it since it was still in colored pencil drawings, and I must say you’ve improved a lot, madam.

On another note, though I’m not sure you’ll actually see or answer this, I’m curious. Do you have the entire comic plot planned out already?

Comment ID #296978

It’s VERY easy to fake your way through high school. People can almost always find a way through even without intelligence or drive. And something I’ve seen in high schools is that they don’t always “hold you back,” per se, but come senior year, you just have to have required courses done and passed. While you are still classified as a junior, you could still be taking a freshman-level class trying to make it up if you’ve failed it twice. So maybe it’s planned that Paulo could be failing all his classes, but come senior year, he finds himself not able to graduate unless he makes up those classes and makes some serious turn-around in his academics as he realizes he needs to move on with his life.
Or we just have a plot convenience.

Mike, you’re probably worrying over nothing, and being glued to your phone isn’t making it any easier. You know Sandy loves you, she’s just probably really wrapped up in her work and/or is super tired at the end of the day.

That being said, I really hope he doesn’t take Sandy’s silence as her finding someone better or whatever and start calling himself a boy toy, even if it would provide these two something to mope bond over.

Calm before the storm, people.

Boy, Mike sure is occupied with his phone. I know some people noticed this before, but it definitely wasn’t this blatant. Maybe there’s something going on between him and Sandy?

Or maybe this is showing how obsessed he truly is with her; that the distance between them is more excruciating than it has ever been, and the one thing Mike cares about more than any other is constant communication with his love…?

A bit of a stretch, I know. Either way, it’s more drama for the pile.

@Thedrpalmer @shade

Since bcb is based of the american system, I have to say that i’m quite surprised high schools worked that way and are apparently quite easy to do? I’m from Europe so that’s why i was confused. With my country, If you fail 3 classes or more in your year or even if you have perfect grades but do not show up a certain amount of times you are held back immediately. For example, you can’t follow your failed freshman-class in your junior year. But the advantage is though, for example, that if you failed 2 classes you don’t have to redo them in your next year.

Maybe for paulo, it is like you said thedrpalmer a plot convenience. Or he has to work a lot in his senior year.

From what I can tell, you just take the failed classes again the next year at the expense of an elective class.
It seems to me like there’s more care over attendance. A solid wall of D’s will get you through school, but if you miss eleven days as a straight A student you lose the credits for the class(es). Maybe there’s something in place for that type of situation, but I don’t know about it.

Either way, mediocrity is rewarded.

Comment ID #297025

Though, it’s funny, for a system mocked for standardization, they have a “just take these certain classes by the end of your senior year, and here have some electives to fill the gap” setup. Yeah, you have to get a certain math to graduate, and you need to take those in order because they build off each other (such is the nature of math), but generally, the farther into high school you get, the more options you have. You can do chemistry, or physics, or earth/space science any year (beyond freshman, because biology is required then), to meet the “one science class beyond biology by senior year” requirement, you have different levels of English classes to meet the “X semesters of english” requirement, and different math classes to satisfy the “need to take one math class each year” part. you could be taking College-level calculus senior year, or basic stats class, depending on your path. You just need to get there by the end instead of hitting landmarks each year. Personally, I found I could have graduated high school with the loweest possible standards at the end of sophomore year if I took the right classes. There’s a vast gap between in the bare minimum you need to get by, and what you can do to be most impressive.

Yeah, for me, you miss 11 days (excepting doctors notes and school-sponsored trips, like a competing sports/academic/performing groups having something during the day) and you just start getting suspensions. So, it’s a kind of vicious cycle of “you miss too much school, we keep you out of school so you fail and have to retake stuff.” Just like if you’re late to class too much, you get in-school suspension, so you just sit in a room and do work. Miss too much class, and we take you out of class. So you’re not directly failed, but kinda forced to fail unless you’re a strong enough student to fight through it.

Hmmm seems that the schoolsystem easily bores or demotivates people i think, if im only going with your opinions about it and the info i have right now.

Proba i have a different grading system. Instead of letters we have numbers. A 1 till 5 is a bad grade but a 6 - 10 is a passing grade (with 8-10 a a really good grade and 1-4 a super bad grade) so is a D in american schools like a 6?

thedalmer you can take collage level subjects in highschool? Awesome, sounds like something daisy would do. Is It also possible in your system, just like you can retake failed classes in previous years, that you can take classes above your year? Therefore maybe graduating sooner?

1) A lot of highschools in the U.S can take college classes, most of the time on the college campus. You had to be doing really well though.
2) The U.S grading system works by assigning 1/100, then attaching a letter to it. a 6/10 or 60/100 would indeed be a D. And 8-10, or B, A, and A+ respectively would indeed be a good grade. F is anything below 6, which is just failure.
edit: 90% of the time, C is satisfactory performance, meaning passing grade.

Yeah it becomes an issue because some schools have a 66 be an F and some have a 59 as the F, so where you can get an A in one school it’s a B in another, and a national standardization/reform just won’t happen. Like my school has a generally harder grading scale, so what is a B+ here (91%) is an A- most other places, but all colleges see are the letters. It should just be numbers.
And yes, we have the AP (advanced placement) program where high schools offer the AP class, and if you score well enough of the final exam and get a passing grade in the class, a college will almost always take it as a credit. And, dual credit, which is where a public college will say a certain high school class also counts as a college credit at that school, and therefore those college credits have to transfer to other public colleges. Of course these classes are harder that the bare minimum, but by the time I graduate high school I’ll essentially have already done a year of college, and can probably get my 4-year degree in 3 years if I plan it right. I will have done just about every general study classes done in high school so I can focus on just my degree courses.
So yeah, you can have kids doing bare minimum work getting through largely without a brain or even learning anything, or you can have kids going through and have a year’s worth of college done.

Though questions that aren’t multiple choice don’t necessarily stick around in your head either.

That sucks immensly that collages mostly look at the letters and not at the numbers. The numbers are more accurate at assessing somebodies intelligence. The work-difference shocks me. That you can trully be really lazy & stupid to make it in high schools of america but on a postive note follow collage classes (therefore getting your degree in maybe 3 years instead of 4). Where i’m from, while my educational system is far from being perfect (far from perfect XD) you can’t get away with being lazy & stupid. There has to be a balance. For example: either you are super smart but lazy or you are hardworking but unfortunatly not so smart :p. In my personal experience it does seem that the supersmart people with no work ethic always in the end have to develop the work mentality because they otherwise can’t make it in collage. The people that work really hard but don’t learn quickly seem to be quicker burned out and stressed. O well.

I forgot about something obvious to why we have letter grades! Very quickly(I lack time) GPA. It’s easier to calculate grade point averages to 5 variables rather than mitigate a 1/100 scale.

Yeah college exists to teach you the value of work ethic, planning your time and putting effort into studying and listening to who is in charge all for a good grade.

Later on you can go into the real world with good work ethic, plan do the work by the deadlines, don’t slack off at work and be ready to do whatever the boss wants so you can have a paycheck.

Individuality and creative thought is not what is valued… it saddens me greatly. ;_;
