depression of 2012 left in 2012

Last year it started in second semester of my junior year, I stopped caring about everything and I lost the passion that I had for doing my best and trying to do better than everyone. I stopped caring about school and started to hate going to school. It continued into the first semester of this school year and my grades suffered. I got 4 B's and 1 C, the worst I have EVER done in school. Over Christmas I got the rest I needed and something clicked and the depression is gone. I look forward to school (unless I forgot to do my homework) and I'm trying so much harder in class. I also took a tutoring hour with the special education class, which is really nice, and gives me a break in the middle of the day. I think that's just about it. . .
