Real Talk Depression: Part 2 – Gas on my hands

I’m sure you all know the story of the guy who had a ‘magic power’ where everything he touched turned to gold. Or, failing that, you’ve seen the Skittles commercial where everything the guy touches turns into Skittles.

Depression is a bit like that. Except everything you touch bursts into flames.

Fandom, freedom and furries – welcome to London MCM

Whether you have a career path in mind, want to take your education further, or, like me, you just want to procrastinate having to Live An Actual Life a little longer, more and more people are deciding to go to university. Which is great, don’t get me wrong; University is a wonderful opportunity, and one everyone should have. But, whether they loved their degree or hated it, there is one thing unanimously agreed upon by all university students; Uni is not what we thought it would be.
