a local man threatened to commit suicide last night
I think I’ve become a sad person over the last year. I think after messing up really bad, I got really down and I was afraid that I’d mess things up again.
But screw that! I have an awesome group of friends, my family rocks, and I have a bright future ahead of me! To top it off, I got accepted to work at Upward Bound again for the summer, and I’ve got a roommate for next year!
I’m so glad that I only have a few weeks of undergrad left so I’ll work hard to get through it, and I’ll try to enjoy what little time I have left with my friends here before summer starts. I need to look on the bright side of things from now on.
I don’t know what the man was thinking last night, and I don’t know what led him to do the things he did. His name is Jack and he worked for the food service company on campus. He had climbed up the side of the building and sat on the ledge, and finally came down after 6 hours of everyone in town being worried.
I guess what I’m trying to say is… Life is good. Whether you’re just in a funk like I was, or if life has really got you down, like Jack. The good outweighs the bad. I’m having a really hard time articulating, so here, have a John Mayer song.
i was going to go to sleep as soon as i got home, but i checked tumblr really quick. and i think one of my followers committed suicide. and i just don’t know what to do about that.
