About Tato

I'm not like everybody else. I'm unique. I'm one of a kind. and everybody loves me. 
/sarcasm

The name's Tato. Just Tato. Easy to remember, easy to type, not so easy to say for some languages. I have a real name, of course, is the one that appears on my ID, but this is the Internet and I like to keep my private information as that, private. But if you're curious, I'm from Venezuela, now a third-world country.

I'm a 24 years old guy who after successfully becoming a Computer Engineer discovered that I wasted 5 years of my life studying something that is not helpful nor useful if you don't find a job right after prom (I'm living with my grandma, BTW).

I started blogging as an amateur five years ago, and I'm still on. The blog was awful, helpful, with good tips, but just plain ugly... uglier than this one. Then I started an internship in a small company (for free), so I had to stop posting. Later I was hired by a friend to post in one of his. Of course, it was from scratch, and after 5 or 6 months it started to make some money. I was glad because at least my work was being useful (finally!). But for reasons beyond my knowledge, he had to let me go.

After a lot of coming and going, a lot of shit in my life, problems, travels, fights, and at some point a crazy evangelic cousin, I realized the only truth in life: It goes on, and whether you like it or not, it will kick you in the nuts and let you crying in fetal position. The best you can do is get up and walk it off.

My history is the same as everyone else. I'm not special, and neither are you. But we do have special qualities that make us unique, and those are the ones we need to exploit until not even Pixar will want to make a sequel.

I'm a regular guy. Don't be afraid to ask, don't be afraid to insult, but when you do it, do it like you mean it.
