Hi everyone. So, today was amazing. I woke up, posted the last 'get the stick' page on Facebook and Reddit, and went to work. When I looked at my phone on my first break, it was hard not to tear up over what had happened in just a few hours.
Some of the kindest words I've ever seen on the Internet had appeared under the little drawings I made, and to be honest I'm still a little floored by it. Rather than paraphrasing:
"Thanks for posting this! really needed it"
"I've been moping around home for the past week, feeling down and awful because i hate searching for jobs.
This just gave me the motto i needed. 'GET THE STICK!'"
And my favorite:
"Don't know if you'll see this in all the replys, but this honestly made me cry. ... Your comic helped me, and I'm going to try to turn my life around because of it."
All I know is it makes me happy that my story could help make a difference for even one other person. And, to at least start to say thank you for all your support and kindness, I made some things.
'Til next time,
