“When has been the most difficult time in your life up until now?”
“When I was in my last year of high school I got rid of my phone. I must have been strange at that time. I wasn’t suffering from depression by I was depressed. I got rid of my phone, I didn’t watch TV, and I cut myself off from all media and forms of communication. I didn’t meet my friends either. I just slept at school and went straight home. I didn’t care about anything, and after a few months my friends screamed at me to come out. So, I got a new phone, hung out with my friends. and finally started to think about university. However, once the time came I realized I didn’t have anything prepared and got really stressed as the rejection letters came one by one.”
“Why did you start feeling depressed in the first place?”
“If I think about it…there was nothing I wanted to do. I think I was always tormented by the vague thoughts about my uncertain future. Now I have things I want to do, so I’m okay.”

“지금까지 살면서 언제 가장 힘들었나요?”
“고3때 핸드폰을 없앴어요. 제가 그때는 이상했었나 봐요. 우울증까지는 아닌데 우울했었어요. 핸드폰도 없애고 티비도 안보고 모든 미디어와 소통을 다 단절했어요. 친구들이랑도 안 놀고 학교에서도 잠만 자고 바로 집에 왔었어요. 아무 상관 없이 그렇게 몇 달을 있는데 친구들이 나오라고 난리쳤어요. 그래서 다시 핸드폰 만들고 활동하게 됐고 겨우 대학도 생각하고 그랬어요. 그런데 막상 대학을 가려니 저는 아무 준비도 안 되어 있고 대학도 하나씩 하나씩 떨어지니까 그런 것들이 스트레스가 크게 왔어요.” 
"그때 우울증이 왜 생겼었던 거 같나요?"
“생각해보면…하고 싶은 게 없어서 였던 거 같아요. 불확실한 미래에 대한 막연한 생각들이 절 괴롭혔던 것 같아요. 지금은 하고싶은 게 생겨서 좋아요.”


New makeup, prosthetic ears,  and chest covering for Mer!Haru! The chest cover isn’t quite perfect yet, I really need two hands to help me apply it. It’s a bald cap cut in half, applied with spirit gum and liquid latex on the edges. I should probably invest in a plastic cap that I can dissolve with acetone to get a smoother finish, but that’s for another day. I am REALLY happy with how the makeup came out this time around though! This costume is my baby, so every little thing I can do to make it better I’ll do :3
