I had finished high school and was waiting to start college I had a three months break the weekend past but then the days started getting longer no more studying no homework nothing to do I started to learn how to cook and bake but that only took no more than two hours. I was filled with boredom and depression came as well you start worrying about the future and fill down when everyone has something to do.
Then one Sunday I came across this article called beating depression, "one has to find their creative side to keep their mind active from painting, photographing, writing or a new hobby." I remembered how I used to enjoy creative writing in high school so I decided to write a short story and I did.
My short story was based on my teenage life I wrote a book called Alison high my characters were based on people who I met through out primary and high school all the things that happen, From the crush, who like who, the gossips and rumours the prom and some made up stuff just to give the book a little spice.
The days got shorter and went faster, I felt happier and I continued writing until I started college. Making up a story was a great pastime for me. I beat depression by making my mind active and I still do that.
