i don’t feel like i’ve been giving the blog enough time recently 😕 it’s been a super busy week, so all of these facts have been a little rushed 😒 #sozza.

i’m afraid that today’s is going to be the same 🙈 not only is it late but i’m mad tired after an 11 hour work day and have another early morning looming 🙃.

ok, i have a feeling that this one is going to be quite short πŸ˜… … i know that i say that a lot but tonight i’ve one hell of a headache and i’m not entirely sure how to actually drag this one out to make a decent length blogpost 😳 … i’m sure i’ll find a way.

#tdil the name of the dude that forms the pringles logo! 😱 Continue reading “today i learned – sun 23rd apr 2017”
