Weak society Blog # 1.


Hello everyone, my name is Ashton Deroy. I create web content and mediums for the internet related to branding, marketing, publishing and public relations.

The pieces will only be 500 words maximum per part of the story, less when I include pictures… as I don’t have time to write a full novel. Currently I am enrolled at Seneca College for Business Administration and Marketing. So that takes up a lot of my time and business is my primary passion.

Crime rates would shoot up, street drugs became popular. People would huff bleach if that is what it took to block out the world. Anything that was left in the pharmacies would likely be stolen and sold on the street for food. 

It seemed this hell was going to be a permanent one until…
