I didn’t think post-grad depression was going to affect me, or at least not as much as it has. I started to seriously fret about graduation and the passing of time and loss of childhood around my 21st birthday in September, came to terms with that as much as one can throughout the fall and winter, and by spring, I was excited to get on with my life.
