    I suppose that it was too much to ask you to do the needful.

    Last time we talked about it, he talked about wanting to go back to school. We just got his loans set away so that he's in good standing. I can only hope that he's actually sticking to it at the moment. <3

    So I am coming into this a little late about the children thing and I'm too lazy to scroll and read it all. My two cents may be for not and I would never tell people to do things the way I did.
    I do have to say that I was a total piece of crap boozing and drugging at the ages of 16,17,18 many of my friends have past as a result of never being able to kick the habit. I on the other hand found my way because of my children. I had my first just before turning 19 and obviously was not ready to be a parent. I did look at life and say Efff is but soon realized that I didn't want to be that guy. I stepped up, got a job that payed a little more than the 7.50 an hour I was making and did what I needed to do. I struggled internally to make myself a better person but I refused to let the mother of my child or my child know. I didn't hate life because I had my baby girl and that gave me the strength to keep going. After about a year the harshness that I was putting on myself started to go away and I was getting better at life. Another year past and I had my second daughter and life got better.
    The one thing that I can say is that I have never been overwhelmed with the amount of money coming in and I never had any outside help besides my now wife of 17 years. We've struggled, we thrived, and we have lived a good and decent life. We still want for more and we will get there one day. My two babies are now grown up quite a bit with one in college working on her degree to become a psychologist and my youngest will graduate with honors next June and will be taking college courses this summer.

    My main point is that sometimes the people that feel the most unready for life can be hit by something and grow. My experience is my own but I also feel that if the person I was when I was a teenager can make it and raise two upstanding young ladies than almost anyone can.

    In case anyone in the Slack hasn't seen, the official word is to ignore them.

    I respect all of you fine folks still hitting the VRAPI hustle because you can maintain a good hourly and in your personal assessment of the world it brings you more good than harm. That's great, and the epitome of the wonderful nature of this platform in that you can trade your time for the ability to do crazy things like, idk, pay your rent so you aren't homeless. A+++, applaud it, live it, love it.

    WITH THAT BEING SAID

    I also think you're all fucking stupid and am not willing to sugarcoat that message.

    I dunno about you, but I'd put having a part time job (at the least) so I don't have to starve every now and again a bit higher on my priorities list than gaining more student debt.
