What this project comes down to is that I'm asking my friends, family, anybody, for any help that they can offer so I can take a break after this school year ends. It is quite necessary for me to stay sane. Read the blog for more info! More ...
I am in an ongoing battle against depression, and I need a break. This situation has led to me falling behind in my study, going into therapy, and being in a constant state of... well... depression. Throughout this, there have been a couple of things that have kept me going (and sane); my friends, family, therapy, and the prospect of starting Game Design.

However, things have been shaky at best. The current situation makes it very possible I won't be able to finish English this year, which will not just mean that I'll have to spend thousands of extra euros to get my bachelor degree, but also that I will 'lose' another year. If I do manage to finish things this year, I'll be thrown straight back into another study which, although I want to do it, will also cost me a lot of time and money.

What I really need is a break. This summer holiday, from basically the 1st of July to the 31st of August, I want to go to Australia, to visit one of my closest friend and the person who has saved my life in this period more than once. However, tickets to Australia seem to be... expensive. I cannot pay for this considering my financial situation. Now I know what many of you will think: look for a job, work for that money! But honestly, right now it is taking all my effort to just stay sane and still work on my study at the same time, so even if I could find a job right now, it would hurt me more than it would help me.

That is why I'm asking for help, and frankly the tiniest bit could help right now. I am stuck between a rock and a hard place, and am slowly slipping into more and more problems, and, like I've said multiple times, I need a break.

I intend to give back: First and foremost I will make a booklet of poetry available here. Of course, if you hate poetry you can ignore it, but I just want to at least offer something for any help I might get. Also, if you want something back for your donation, be sure to ask me. Think of a drawing, a video, writing, a hug, me playing/singing a song for you, anything really. I feel bad about asking for help, but lately I've not had much of a choice.
