Started since I was 10, I’m 18 now.

I remember being a kid in elementary school using a computer and staying up all night watching machinimas and newgrounds hentai. I always kept up to date over the years, and I always had this place of comfort whenever it got rough. I always had the podcast to listen to while I shuffled boxes at work, or jogging with my dog, or just putting on makeup in the theater before I head up onstage. I started playing a bunch of games I never would have touched if it wasn’t for the podcast. Senior year was the hardest year of my life, as I’d assume it is for everyone. Close friendships ended on the absolute worst state possible, one of my friends died of an overdose, the other almost, and the other is still in prison. I broke up with my girlfriend of 4 years, and my best friend kissed me spontaneously before she went to serve her mission for her church in Brazil for 18 months. I’m absolutely head over heals in love with her and I don’t know if she feels the same or if she will when she gets back. Anyways, after I graduated I went to Colombia for 6 months to be an English teacher. I figured I time away from everything and everyone is the best thing I can do for myself. It’ll be almost 5 months since I’ve gotten here. I’m in a tiny town called Pijao deeeep in the forests of Colombia, and the 1-2 hour commute every morning to various schools around the community is to stand on the back of a jeep on the bumpiest road in existence. I’m super social normally, but since I got here I still haven’t made any friends that aren’t just immediate family, and contact with my friends back in the states is scarce since the internet here is catastrophically awful. But I’m still having the time of my life here. I took up boxing while I was here and I am much more fit and muscular than I was when I got here (fingers crossed I come home with that 6pack) Working with children is much more pleasant than I thought it was gonna be. And with all of the Indigenous and Venezuelan refugees getting used to their new lives here it’s fun to give them the opportunity to learn English, or to pull out my switch and play some street fighter with them during recess. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than a child’s smile. I just want to say thank you to The Super Best Friends for everything. For making that morning commute through the forest more pleasant. Thank you for talking about video games while I shadowbox near a waterfall or while I lay in a hammock grinding in Persona 3. Thank you for encouraging me to get good at fighting games. Thanks for being the only source of English speaking here that kept me sane since my spanish isn’t perfect. During the time I’ve spent here I feel like I’ve become a completely different person. I’m so much more happier with myself, and even though I miss California and all my friends there, this time off is good for me to learn to value all the things I have in life. But if it wasn’t for the podcast mellowing me out here I’d probably have gone home much earlier. Thank you guys for everything. I’m sorry this was so dramatic and personal but I felt like I needed to speak it. Thank you all so much. via /r/TwoBestFriendsPlay
