Life Struggle

Hello everyone, I’m new to this place I’m from the United States and I’m trying to connect with anyone really about mental health and school. I go to a basic level inter city college that anyone can get into. I’m an Art History major and at the same time I want to know is it better to just finish your major and just apply abroad for a masters? Also I’m kind of in a depression too. I believe a lot of people can relate. Don’t have many friends and at the same time I’m trying to better myself because I want to be able to feel like a functioning human you know?
