While depression might be a good thing (I mean, some of the greatest artists were depressed, right?), I am not that creative. So, I try to do a few activities to get my mind off things:
1. Try to connect with people. However, at 27, I don't think anybody my age would want to make new friends. You know, real friends. Actual people who will help you when you need them and vice-versa. So, I guess I'm failing miserably and it doesn't help the depression. I made a few friends, though. I guess, that's enough and I should quit complaining.

3. Watch comedy. With the exception of a few dramas (Madmen, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, and, American Horror Story) I watch sitcoms exclusively.

|I shoulda went as Jesse Pinkman, but, I forgot.|
|I like American Horror Story while I don't generally like horrors|
|Patrice Oneal kinda minds, but, really doesn't|
4. Write songs. While I said above that I am not very creative (or good at doing this), I still enjoy it quite a lot. I think this might be the only thing that doesn't seem like a complete failure for me, but, when Mike Kinsella is your peg, you might really get depressed 'cause he's really good.
So yeah, I just try to do the things I enjoy and milk the crap out of it. 'Cause there's no sense in staying depressed if you're not good at it.
