So I miss you guys:
Hanging around doing nothing but gaming all day and talking to you fools, making plans about stuff that maybe could happen, drinking bunches, smoking stuff, arguing with my ex-wife.
Then I left Bolivia to the Netherlands. Mom is cancerless now. Still has pains. Seems that the cure is indeed worse than the illness. In the Netherlands we use illnesses as a bad word. Take as an example: I hope you get Aids=[censored] you. Well the word Cancer is more than a bad word. Heavy stuff.
Got my own place at first. Had a crummy job in a call center, because that is the first job I could take. This place is competitive as hell. Mastersdegree and you start at the very bottom....I have a first year diploma...so I start selling stuff.
Make it to compliance agent within a year.
Compliance agent is the guy that hears if everything is according to law in each call. Did that for half a year, then suddenly the company goes broke. And no that was not my fault. It was because of missmanagement. Or was it?
Any huuuu. I start selling door to door, because well, money, and, rent and stuff. I am very good at this and become team leader selling energy contracts.... At this time in my life depression sets in. 5 years of burnout combined with clinical depression.

Rest, therapy, no oxygen. I quit my job and luckily the Dutch government helps if you have no income...they give you money.
So I convince the psychiatrist that nihilism is the only step forward from functionalism. He says that that is not the point and then says that my cognitive dissonance is due to to unresolved issues in my past and we talk about that. Forgive myself and move on.

Between shits and giggles, I realise that I am a good salesman, and that is what I like to do. Start education in marketing (which I am still following). Suddenly I get a call from Vendere. This company is the most prestigious B2B contact center in the Netherlands. Call, then first, second, third talk. Hired.

I have found my craft. Took 38 years to realise that I am a salesman, and this sirs is my profession. I am quite on the way of making a career of it.

Just wanted to share. Love ya'll

Dude, super glad to hear your mom is doing better at least. You have no idea how much I have missed you in team speak. You are the life of the party when you hang out and game. What do we need to do to restore the pig?
