  • I had major big time spies following me on Social media and I got a mad crush on one of them -- and I began posting crazy embarrassing stuff bc of it - and he unfollowed me - but at least he didn’t block me lol - this was almost 5 years ago and I’m embarrassed as fk about it -- I quickly lost romantic interest in him but he’s a hot mf’r- and I see him on the news or someone I follow ET’s him and I cringe - I can’t bear to look at him I’m so shamed but that’s the way it goes.

  • So the fact that oak island end's at the end of a terry's chocolate orange segment mean's nothing to you, the whole thing of Freemason's worshiping the parallel of some degree, meaning what they picked it for a reason, why oak island, because it is the end of terry's chocolate orange segment because a thing could be placed in the same place as before but at the other side of the terry's chocolate orange segment.
