  1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad
    and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

  2. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
