Hello allenlau! Thank you so much for creating Wattpad. Without it, I don't think I'd be here right now. Writing is my escape from the world and after awhile you get bored of a pencil and paper. I got seriously depressed (I'm a little bit better, not all the way fixed though. Getting there) after awhile on here because so much stuff was happening at my age that I'm pretty sure a person my age shouldn't really have to go through. I couldn't cope properly with the world for awhile so I escaped it, through reading and writing. Without this app/site, I wouldn't be as mentally stable as I currently am and/or here period because this is mostly the reason why I chose to cope with the world finally after some long months. 

I know this sounds like I'm being melodramatic but, I don't know what would I do without Wattpad?
