While The World Sleeps

Friends

Best Friends Margaret the Cow with Pearl the Goat Although I'm sure everyone clicked through to hear about everyone's favorite sitcom that is not what I'm writing about, however, I am a huge fan so if you do want to chat about Friends the show just let me know.

Battery Life

Battery Last night I looked down at my phone and surprisingly it still had almost half its battery life. This is abnormal for me often having to charge my phone before the end of the day.
