Musings, Midweekly

Thursday, February 23, 2012

It's that time of the week again. Here's what I'm currently musing over...

1. Moving in One Direction.

Thanks to my friend Ariana I've been stalking them on YouTube and I've fallen in love with their catchy songs, hilarious personalities, and exceptional voices.

I googled Archie Grand later and discovered a whole collection of catchy notebooks as well as an invitation to create a page in one of these blank notebooks and submit it to the website and it might be published!
