Chronicles Of My Teenage Depression | Collected Stories

Hi guys! It’s been a while! I’m currently reviving my Medium blog to act as a complement to my new official blog. While going through my writing pieces on Medium, I found that I used to write a kind of ‘Depression’ series. These blog posts are now irrelevant to my content on that platform, but I didn’t want to just delete them, so I’ve decided to keep them here. Enjoy the collected writing pieces on my teenage depression!

The Only Time I Was Depressed

She had been depressed before, but she had never been Depressed. She had had her sad days, because life was made to have ups and downs, but she had never felt to be at a point outside of the graph, without a clue where to go next.

At that specific point, there was no beginning, no continuation, no end. She just was. And it felt like she would always be.

In her sleep, she was lost in a film of nightmares. When she was awake, she hid behind a curtain of tears. No, she did not always cry, but she always wanted to, and so her eyes.

Dating Tips for Teens

Venturing into the world of dating for the first time as a teenager is both exciting and scary all at the same time. It’s full of butterflies, first kisses, and first heartbreaks. When you first enter the dating realm you have no idea what you’re doing, which can be overwhelming. The good news is that everyone has all of those same emotions, so you’re not alone. Before you jump headfirst into the world of dating, though, make sure you do a few key things:

Why Avoid The Unavoidable?

Why avoid the unavoidable? Life itself is so simple, but we make it complicated.

We limit ourselves… and sometimes it just makes everything worse.

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.” 
― Neil GaimanThe Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Yes, for teenagers, school is a perfect example of what I’m going to write about today. Of course, I won’t say that this type of education isn’t important; it does have advantages like, it is now critical to have passed high school and at least followed tertiary courses to have a stable and respectable job.

An Evil Nymph Goes Back to School

The title sounds so childish, don’t you think so? Anyway.

My 6th year at secondary school will start on Thursday! Excited? Thrilled? uh… well I guess I got used to it. So bye bye holidays and welcome uniforms and homework… My schedule will be tighter too. 😛

But to spice up those long days at school and tuition, I crafted a pencil case (which I always do since I learnt how to make one… thanks to school lol) like this one:
