  1. Well this might not be a big deal since I am not a celebrity or a Pulitzer prize winner. But Today in History made it a major milestone I and my Bae @EmpressBest agreed to love each other against all odds. And till date we are still as strong as a meteor rock.

  19. Peeps go outside tonight and see the largest moon ever. It's not going to be this big for another 34 yrs or so. This is because the moon is the closest it's been to the earth in decades. It's large and clear.
