Dear Twerps, finally I have a place to stay in IBADAN. I now go out every morning, telling my neighbors I'm off to work. Depression is gone. I am Happy. October is just a start of something New. I now trust in the Magic of New Beginnings. I haven't even met most of these people that helped me. Twitter ain't so bad as people portray it. I just want to thank these people who looked out for me, especially the ones I'm yet to meet. God bless y'all
For helping me get my life together. I know the start is always rough, but y'all have taught me to take it ONE STEP AT A TIME. No more su*cidal thoughts. I never knew Adulthood could be stressful, but y'all have taught me how to be strong. The start may not look so good but I still have that strong feeling that I'm still gonna get my dream job through someone on this app. Twitter saved my life. They are so many wonderful people on this app and I'm glad I didn't come across the bad ones"
