    "I spent months shut in my house, surfing the internet on top of a pile of my own dirty laundry which I set on the couch for 'just a second' because I experienced a sudden moment of apathy on my way to the washer and couldn't continue. And then, two weeks later, I still hadn't completed that journey. But who cares - it wasn't like I had been showering regularly and sitting on a pile of clothes isn't necessarily uncomfortable." Hyperbole and a Half: Adventures in Depression, by Allie Brosh.

    A funny but realistic take on what someone suffering with depression goes through. Going into education means I will have to help students going through many situations and depression is only one of them. After personally seeing what it's like for someone to go through depression, it's important to be there and support them and this comic is a great tool to understand what it is like. (The f word comes up towards the end but still an informative cartoon.)

excuse the vulgarity, but this pretty much sums up everything that has been going on today. People say it is what it is. I say it be like that sometimes. Just gotta know when to cut all else off, and do YOU. If it's meant to be, it'll come. If not, you can't say you didn't try.
