A/N

Hi everyone! I’m sorry that new facts haven’t been posted in a long while. I spent last semester studying abroad. I’m going to be a senior in college so my life is sorta up in the air! Once school starts, I’m going to queue up a bunch of facts so that they get rolling! 

And I apologize in advance if any facts start to repeat. Its been so long (and I know so many facts…) that its difficult to remember what I’ve put up and haven’t put up!

Thanks everyone for sticking around! It makes me smile that 55 people follow this blog!
