I have been busy this week on a emotional rollercoaster. I will not burden everyone with the downs, for more than one reason. At least partially because it is not all my story, and also because I really don’t want to do the whole complaining and ranting thing.
So I will share the good end of the spectrum that has been my life this week. A friend of mine decided to start a magazine. She is doing it to raise awareness on mental health issues. And she asked me to help with it! So I am getting to be a part of this awesome magazine, and in the beginning too.
The magazine is taking submissions. Here is a copy of the post she made about it :
Escaping The Vault – Magazine is now accepting art and written materials pertaining to mental health awareness.
For our first issue we are looking for:
