Moikka kaikille taas! Tein ennen lyhyehköjä ääniblogimerkintöjä Kieku-sovellukseen. Nyt kun sovellusta ei enää ole, ajattelin siirtää homman tänne ns oikean blogin puolelle.

Laziness re-evaluated


  Mental illness can affect anyone. In England that number is 1 in 4 people in any given year [1], with up to 10% of the population suffering from depression in their lifetime [1].
