Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Finally, I Left My Job For Freelancing! by deturla: 2:38pm On Aug 26
I'll be resigning in the from my work place to venture into Freelancing full time. Why?

Because my work is so stressful. It's 6:04am and I'm already late for work. I'll be at the work place doing tedious work till 7:30pm. I'll have to be standing till that evening time of the day. It's a one man business and I risk being fired any time. From March to August, I've been able to save 55k. I don't do it drinks. Neither do I smoke or buy expensive things for myself. Well, yes. I don't have a girlfriend. So saving 55k portrays how zealous I am with the savings with the little I earn. Now, I'm facing a health challenge: a back and waist pain. So I want out.

Planning on focusing on the Freelancing route.

My worry now is, am I making the right decision?

I need your advice. What would you do if you were to be me?

To be or not to be?

Interesting decision you’re about to make for your life. You have every right to want to leave your 9 to 5, however, you’ve not got enough savings to leave. N55k is just not enough.

Unless maybe there are some gigs already waiting for you on the outside, then I suppose you are good to go.

Meanwhile, we are currently looking for writers to join our web content team.

Are you interested in this?
Send a DM then and let me get you started.

All the best as you make that huge decision.

Education / Re: My Sweden Scholarship Story by deturla: 6:15am On Oct 17, 2020
My scholarship testimony
In the midst of #EndSARS and now #ENDSWAT, I believe many Nigerian youths have what it takes to make this county better if quipped with advanced knowledge in their respective fields.

Let me tell you a bit of my story.

My journey into scholarship hunting began in 2017, immediately after my NYSC. I had my first shot at New Zealand Scholarship for Development.

When I scaled through the first round, I thought it would be a smooth ride until I lost out at the second stage; abstract reasoning.

With a 2:1, I knew my chances of winning a scholarship was not very high, as most opportunities go to first class holders. However, I was determined to give it a shot regardless.

In 2018, I applied for CSC Scholarship in China. With the help of a friend, I got a supervisor, and all was going smoothly until the admission list came out. I was admitted on Type-D which meant I had to pay tution fee and sort all the bills all on my own. It was so heartbreaking, as I was already fantasizing about the beautiful city of Shanghai. �.

What followed were series of rejections, from OKP to Mastercard, Chevening to Commonwealth, IPAD to MEXT (both Japanese), Erasmus to Marshal Papworth, the "Thank you and Sorry," emails kept coming back to back.

At a point, I abandoned my usual email address and created a new one; I felt maybe it had been cursed somehow �.

It got so bad that some of my close folks advised me to consider M.Sc. in Nigeria and forget about studying abroad until Ph.D. level.

However, I have a lot of friends that wouldn't just allow me to give Up. They were always there to provide support.

Last year, around August, I was scrolling past this ISF WhatsApp group when I found info on SI scholarship in Sweden.

That I could apply without writing IELST, TOEFL or GRE made it so appealing. Also, it's open to all classes of grade as they pay little attention to academic brilliance. I studied the material like my life depends on it.

Unfortunately, when the result came out, I missed out on the full scholarship��‍♂️.

The SLU scholarship which covers tuition and medical alone also came out and I was placed on reserve.

On May 27th, I got a mail that they had concluded the selection and unfortunately, no place for me.

That was when I felt our village people were really strong. In my mind, I was done with scholarship application.

However, on June 1st, I was seated just imagining receiving a mail that they have reconsidered me after all.

At that moment, I got a mail notification and opened it. Lo and behold, my imagination turned out to be reality. Out of 6 openings, someone declined his offer and that created an opening for me.

But there is no stipend. No problem! My moment of waiting had, however, fully prepared me to cater for my own needs (It costs $1K/month on average to live comfortably in Sweden). Thanks to my freelancing career and the good people of Premium Freelancing Class (PFC).

Today, I am one of the 6 recipients of SLU scholarship and the only one in my department.

All thanks to God, my family, my friends, and the entire ISF members. Testimonies and lectures from that group are always useful for every application.

If you are like me with countless "Thank you" and "Sorry" emails, I want to encourage you today not to give up. You have gone too far to lose. Your time will come!

Next admission opens by October 16, 2020.

Get more updates here:

Congratulations Dolapo. This is the drive I need to get started.

I've been online in the last one week researching and researching till break point. The information online is super, duper rich and I am happy that you got in.

I have just commenced my journey too, as I am interested in some of the courses on there. I have enough experience running digital businesses and I just pray I make it too.

We should connect though. Advice from you is critical at this point.

I hope to see you soon. *grins*. See as your face fresh sef. Sweden sweet abeg! grin grin

You are the one who studies Sustainable Food Systems at SLU? I hope I am right though. Haha.

Let me know if you would like me to send you an email.

All the best man.

I was quite young then. I was trusted and tired of life. I went to the kictchen. Wrote the short suicide note. Held the knife . Put the tip on my Belle. But I just couldn't do it . I was too weak... I wished there was a way death could come with that much pain... but another voice in me said "there's another way- BECOME SUCCESSFUL!!!."

Wow. This is amazing.

I hope you don't have that feeling anymore?

You are an overcomer.

Romance / Have You Ever Felt Like Committing Suicide Before? How Did You Overcome? by deturla: 4:55pm On Apr 22, 2020
Have you ever felt like committing suicide based on depression before?

You'd just draw blank, after sadness has enveloped you for so long.

You'd not be able to think of anything else. Just within your shell, you'd grow cold.

The pressure of the pain, the hurt reaches a high, one that only you can feel. No one else can.


The thought of suicide filters in, and you'd come to make peace with yourself.
Shebi, death will make all the pain go away.

The peace that that comes with the realization of dying will be overwhelming that nothing else will matter at that point.

That's why it's never easy to pull someone from the throes of suicide.

For those who have won suicide, you are the real MVPs.

How did you deal with it?
How did you help yourself?

Can we learn from you?

Anyone can get married at anytime.

The goal isn't marrying. It's about marrying the right person... having a blissful home... and growing old together.

This isn't an ideal way marriage should happen. But may the grace of the Lord be sufficient for them.

Ideal is what you think it should be. But realistically, marriage can happen anywhere, anyhow and anytime.

Amen to your prayers.

OlaOlu, based in Nigeria met Fola, a Nigerian Nurse based in the U.K on Facebook sometime in July 2019 and they immediately hit it off.

Their conversation started with a comment on a Facebook post which quickly progressed into the DM. And the rest, as they say, IS HISTORY!

What makes this particular Naija love story exciting is that they never met physically during the 3 months they dated.

The love bug and connection was strengthened through video calls on Whatsapp and Facebook, and after 3 months of online dating, Fola travelled to Naija to meet her Prince Charming and they got MARRIED!

The husband made this post on Facebook:

It was Itodo's birthday and as Getmeri's ambassador I sent his number to the company to call and wish him a happy one. I shared his appreciation of the kind gesture on my timeline and next thing I know this Facebook friend commented that when will she get her own Getmeri call.

My first reaction was, kinni isolenu yí bayi? I couldn't leave the comment unattended to because Getmeri's image was at stake so I replied that she should dm me her number.

When she came inbox and dropped an international number, I was dismayed. International calls cost more and Getmeri nuh send me message reash this level. But she's got this good sense of humour and I could feel she was hitting on me as well.

That very night in August, we chatted for about 5 hours till early in the morning. The flow was effortless.

So I finally get to marry a nurse as it is and the prophecy I gave myself that my future wife would walk into my DM herself just like my mum walked into my dad's house is fulfilled.

Thanks to a few friends that have been part of our journey. Started from the DM now we're here.

We caught up with them before Fola made her return trip back to the UK, and they shared their journey from Facebook to getting married with us.

Love is indeed beautiful
