Post Secret

Have a secret you want to share? EngSoc organizes Post Secret as a way for students to anonymously get anything they want off their chest. Here’s a collection of what’s been submitted and posted recently outside of our very own POETS.

There’s a physical collection box in front of POETS to collect anonymous submissions. Submissions are then typed up and posted up by the Mental Health Awareness directors.

I’m questioning my sexuality and I don’t know what to do about it

I’m asexual but don’t feel comfortable telling anyone despite having no concrete reason for feeling so

I procrastinate a bit but I’m pretty good overall

Depressed and don’t feel like calling for help

I’m asexual

Socializing is like a lemon, except I hate lemons

I hate being ugly so much. It negatively impacts almost everything I do because people are so shallow. I’ve been incredibly depressed for years and no one wants to help me because I look like a monster

I still miss her and it hurts not seeing her

I spend most days thinking of committing. Can anyone just talk to me for a bit?

I’m not an engineer, but I guess it relates to it. I wanted to be an engineer so badly, and when I got rejected it killed me. I still go to Waterloo but as a CS student. I’m not mad about it anymore but I feel that everything is changing so fast and I have no control

Sometimes I wish something bad would happen to me so I had a reason to feel like this

I constantly wake up depressed and some days are good. I’ll get through them and even enjoy them, but most days I don’t want to do anything at all and when I think about my future, I freak out

On top of it I feel like I don’t have a home. I hate living in Waterloo but I feel like when I go home it’s not the same as it used to be. I feel like a guest in my own home and it kills me

To all of you at Waterloo Engineering, you are my family. I love you all! Thanks for being supportive ❤

Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has opened up, either through this blog or through Post Secret. It’s not easy talking about what you’re struggling with but you’re never alone and sharing your stories and experiences are a great way to remind us all of that.

As always, submissions for the blog are welcome at

Song of the day:
