How to be Depressed

I wrote this piece for an assignment for a writing class in college. We were to write instructions for anything. How to be Depressed is what I handed in. It was later published in Mush, the literary magazine of the University of Wisconsin Marathon County in the 2013 10th Anniversary Edition, and I have read this for a live audience several times. It is my best know piece of writing. I hope you enjoy it!

How to be Depressed

5th and Franklin

This piece is a relatively new experimental short story. It’s dark and a little grim, and my hope is that  you, the reader, will ponder the ideas I explored long after the end of the story. I really hope you enjoy reading 5th and Franklin as much as I enjoyed writing it.
