The Funny Girl

Dear Diary,

Depression is real and I know that I handle it in a bad way. When things in my life are crazy or I feel like I can’t control a situation, my first instinct is to drink and forget about whatever may be bothering me. It’s almost like I don’t have a limit once I start drinking. I won’t stop until my mind is completely off of things or until I’m happy. Friends would describe me as nonchalant, closed off, an introvert, or very laid-back. If you were to see me on campus, you may see me walk around with a straight face all of the time and I admit that I can look unapproachable. I enjoy being at parties because it’s where everyone can appear that they are happy with their lives, and I can finally feel temporarily freed from my thoughts and the problems that I go through.
