    I remember being very depressed while I was in college. For no reason that was apparent to me, everything was bland. Everything was negative and I was negative towards everything. It took a lot of stubborness and a bit of courage to tell myself that I had to drop out. After many months of feeling crappy and like I wanted to memorize tomorrow and live in yesterday. But then there was a yearning in me not to become one of those people that always talked about what I could've been or what I should've done. I met 2 incredible people randomly and it made me feel alive again. I found a great job where I could meet lots of cool people. Then I started to realize what I needed to do to improve myself. I'm still relatively depressed, but I think I'm back to a more natural balance with myself. I do know everybody goes through this to some degree.
