To be completely honest, for this 24-year-old me right now, it's indeed a very tricky question. Yeh, normally, or at least for the past few years, I will have known exactly what I want, where I am heading to, how I am gonna achieve it, whatever. However, right now, I just don't know.

“Why would people waste 5/7 of the time, dead and desperate, for the remaining 2/7 of their life ie. weekends?”
I did not realise how important having a healthy body and mind is, until when it’s too late, that you realise you may lose them.

I was anorexic. But I never told you on this blog that I had depression at the same time. Yes, I had depression, but I used to deny that I had depression. It could be school, it could be peer pressure, it could be the lack of self-appreciation that slowly drenched me into the swirl of depression. That's why I almost see myself in your stories I read – that I would starve myself to lose weight, that I would cry for hours and hours, that I would fake a smile as if I am fine. (Read more...)
