I’m Rachel, 19, cis girl. I also go by Blue. Super duper LGBTQIA & etc friendly.

I like drawing and storytelling, and I have three middle names.

I don’t wear pants if I can help it, and I like sliding on hardwood floors in socks. I’m an avid reader of everything, but especially comics, fantasy, and satire.

I enjoy Halloween and spooky stuff more than I think is normal. I like bad puns and wordplay and awful jokes. I still know most of the old Disney songs by heart.

I suffer from panic attacks and occasionally depression. If you ever need to talk to someone, let me know.

I just finished a year at Sheridan College, but I’m taking a year off to work and deal with some personal stuff. I loved living and going to school in Toronto, and if you’ve got questions about the school, shoot me a note. :)

Favorite Stuff:
:bulletgreen: Terry Pratchett’s Discworld
:bulletgreen: Tamora Pierce’s Tortall & Emelan books
:bulletgreen: Neil Gaiman & whatever the hell you call what he does
:bulletgreen: chocolate truffles
:bulletgreen: fresh sushi
:bulletgreen: cold apple juice & hard cider
:bulletgreen: political/social satire
:bulletgreen: strawberry ice cream (strawberry anything, really)
:bulletgreen: trying new cheeses
:bulletgreen: the psychology of organized crime (especially girl gangs)
:bulletgreen: comfy couches with fluffy blankets
:bulletgreen: beautiful tattoos (I want them ALL) & piercings (I have ten)
:bulletgreen: cartoons that make me feel stuff
:bulletgreen: armor (knights, samurai, kevlar, all of it)
:bulletgreen: TV tropes
:bulletgreen: the sound of rain and the smell of rain and snow

I just want to say thank you so much for the Daily Deviation.
I am absolutely amazed by the outpouring of love and support from people. It's incredible to know that there are so many people struggling with the same things I am, and I'm so happy that this comic made people feel better.
I want to thank Istebrak for suggesting my work; she is one of the sweetest, most talented people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting on this site. And I'd like to thank KasumiCR for featuring me - it means so much. :heart:

I wrote this about a really hard time in my life, and spoke about a problem that I'm still experiencing to a different degree. I just want to let everyone who read this comic know, it'll be okay. Someday it will. And you'll feel a million times better.
Remember that there are people out there who are feeling exactly what you're feeling. That's not to dismiss or diminish your experiences - it's to let you know that you're not alone. There are people and resources out there for you to rely on. I promise. You just have to find the right support network.
And remember, being on medication doesn't mean you're broken or wrong, and needing medication doesn't mean you're using it as a crutch. Depression and anxiety can be a chemical imbalance in your brain - all you're doing is changing the balance. :tighthug:

Now go out there and win. Even if it's not today, this month, or this year, I hope you'll remember how strong you are inside.
I love you all. :love:

Discworld is awesome! :D Years ago I bought a whole slew of the novels... and only managed to read two of them. Only because I got distracted and then lost the collection. D'oh! And never got around to buying them again later and reading them because I've been so busy with other things... but I loved Mort and Equal Rites! :D Also fresh sushi.

Congratulations on your daily deviantion! :)
Hope things are better for you now, it's not something easy to deal with. But finding the right people, and getting rid of the people who puts you down, it will heal you over time. And learning that living the so-called life is a fantastic thing. 
A random hug from a random deviant! :iconhuggleplz:
