@chicagobulls Wait until next year! Not the outcome we wanted but we fought hard until the very end.
I am an emo kid
Everyday I see and meet people suffering. They feel like they are alone and that no one truly understands what it feels like. They are not alone and if you, yourself are suffering know you are not alone either. I understand. I know what it feels like because I’ve been through it everyday of my life, I just never fully knew what it was.
Not until I meet people dealing with similar issues and got the facts did I fully understand that I was not alone. According to DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance) major depressive disorder affects approximately 14.8 million American adults, or about 6.7 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older, in a given year. I’m one of them.
For the longest time I was ashamed and hid my pain while fighting through my own battle. That was until last summer when I had a breakdown before ultimately having a break through in my lifelong battle with mental illness.
My pride would not allow me to admit to my friends and family, much less the world, what I already knew to be true.The outpouring of support by those closest to me has made this difficult process easier for me. Thank you to those who have been in my corner, checking in on me, through phone calls, text, emails and skype. I’m very fortunate to have the right people in my life now. The past 10 months have been an incredible breathe of fresh air.
There is nothing to be ashamed of. I take medicine for my illness. These prescriptions help me function at an optimum level. That is no different from someone with diabetes having to take insulin or someone with asthma using an inhaler.
In addition to being an artist and entrepreneur, I am now an advocate for Mental Illness, Mood Disorders and the people suffering with these diseases as well as the friends and family of people who suffer. I’m not trying to save the world, helping people fight their battle, helps me fight my battle.
It’s not easy, I have good days and bad days. And last week I had a few terrible days. But I’m still here to tell about it.
If you or someone you know has thoughts of death or suicide, call toll-free (800) 273-TALK (800-273-8255) or 9-1-1 immediately. Or contact a medical professional, clergy member, loved one, friend, or hospital emergency room.

THE MYTH THAT “MINORITIES” GET MORE SCHOLARSHIPS DEBUNKED SINCE 5EVER
This is something that comes up time and time again like clockwork.Here’s a”just the facts” post.
Racists LOVE this tired old saw. The problem is that it’s complete and utter bullshit, it always HAS been, and IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF REALITY.
Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population.
Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students. These statistics demonstrate that, as a whole, private sector scholarship programs tend to perpetuate historical inequities in the distribution of scholarships according to race.
BUT WHAT ABOUT FINANCIAL NEED BASED SCHOLARSHIPS????
It debunks the race myth, which claims that minority students receive more than their fair share of scholarships. The reality is that minority students are less likely to win private scholarships or receive merit-based institutional grants than Caucasian students. Among undergraduate students enrolled full-time/full-year in Bachelor’s degree programs at four-year colleges and universities, minority students represent about a third of applicants but slightly more than a quarter of private scholarship recipients. Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students.
STOP PARROTING RACIST MYTHS INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY FACT CHECKING
