What I Hated the Least Today 223/365: Depressed Is the New Drugged

I apologise for another depressing depression post. I somehow can’t get it out of my head (quite literally).

I’m not a huge fan of holidays of any kind, which doesn’t prevent me from wishing everyone who feels otherwise a satisfactory holiday season.
