In 2008 I attempted suicide.

I was hospitalized and I lost everything. When I got out I lost my job, my car, my home, everything. I was 24 with no education outside of a high school diploma, and I knew only how to sell things to people, which I hated.

I dreamt of traveling the world and seeing new places but I’d done nothing close to that. I lost focus of everything. I thought money was the key to happiness and I chased that. Feeling devoid of everything, I really thought that there was no reason to continue. I had my shot at life and I blew it. My family convinced me to go back to university, despite my appeals that I was too old.

I became a teacher, I volunteered as a coach for the Special Olympics, and I worked with at risk youth. I found that what made me happy was making kids who I could empathize with happy. Making them feel that they were cared for, that a stranger could invest in them, and believe in them. I haven’t looked back since.

This situation has brought back old emotions, it’s taken away from me so much of what I feel I need to be happy and I feel disconnected from the very humans I only want to better. I’ve had to adapt, and in that, I’ve come to see, slowly, that I have much to be grateful for.

Today I moved into my dream flat. I’m a kid from an extremely humble, and very young family in the desert of west Texas with a dream to travel the world and today I feel accomplished. My home today is a place I could only dream of as a child and couldn’t fathom in 2008. I still struggle, every day in fact, but I know that I have a purpose, and through a laptop or in person, it doesn’t matter, I know there are tiny humans who need to be believed in and I’m happy to do that! I loved every single student that I’ve had and I don’t say that because it’s what a teacher should say, I say it because I mean it. Today I feel OK, and that’s always a step on the right direction for anyone.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
