9. Omg. Why is everybody dying in this book? It’s obviously a sign, that I’m going to die too.
10. “Must speak fluent Afrikaans” Vok.
11. This looks great! I can totally do this *Scrolls down: 344 people have applied for this job* I can’t even.
12. I should start looking for a husband, I wonder if Mac will marry me?
13. *Phone rings* Oh Yay! It’s a Job. No, it’s a man from MTN. I’m on Vodacom.

17. Facebook. Nothing to see here.
18. Instagram. I’ve seen all of these, why are people not instagramming???

35. Vodacom just doubled my airtime, at least God sees me.
36. NP: Twista Ft Faith Evans, Hopeful.
