It’s fucked up that you can buy an ancient fertility statue on Amazon. If you buy this $78,000 relic you should keep some extra money on hand in case it’s cursed. Or, if you’re like the other customers who viewed this item, you might want a women’s hiking backpack.

Things about blogging

OK. The thing is that I was always gonna to do some blogging, but I’m not good in that. What I thing I should do, I’ll follow some of you and will get some hints and tips. I learned how to play on piano by looking at other musicians. Some of them gave me some instructions, but watching some tutorials on Youtube helped me a lot.

So here I go.

I’ll watch you carefully and some day (hopefully soon) I”ll start my proper blog thing.

cheers
