Just a Fact: Tiny mites live at the base of your eyelashes. Gross right?! They have eight legs each and look like alligators. I’m not sure if I think they’d be cute or ugly. But baby alligators are pretty dang cute, so maybe these are too? I’m sure you’re rubbing your eyelashes at the moment thinking “Get them off!” Well that’s what my mom did when I shared this fact with her. No need to fret though, they’re actually good for you because they gobble up germs!
Did You Know?: Nicholas Flamel was a real person! In the Harry Potter books he is said to have found the philosophers stone and became immortal. While in real life Flamel was an alchemist said to have discovered the secret of the philosophers stone and succeeded in making gold. Flamel lived 1330-1417 and when someone broke into his tomb for the secret, it is told to be found empty. Perhaps he faked his death and is still hanging around with the stone keeping him alive?
Should I Join?: The world is full of secret societies. Although I’m not sure I’d really like to join any of them. Perhaps it would be interesting and rewarding to be a part of the Illuminati. They were a secret society of monks said to have seen a vision from the Holy Spirit. Now conspiracy theorists think they have plans for world domination. Perhaps we can dominate the world with world peace?!(:
Hiya my lovely followers. Now this is technically the last post I have to make for my independent reading class. This blog was a school project sort of thing but I have gotten so many followers so I am considering continuing it when I have spare time since I read so much. If you’d like to see more of my posts, leave a comment or send over a message! If not, I have had a great time telling you all about my reading and inner thoughts.
