DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE NEAREST POSSIBLE FRIDAY BY THE LOVE IF YOUR LIFE. TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOR LIFE. NOW YOU'VE STARTED READING THIS. DON'T STOP THIS IS SO FREAKY. But if you read this and ignore it, then you will have very bad luck PUT THIS ON 15 SONGS IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOURE DONE PRESS THE SPACE BAR AND YOUR CRUSH'S NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS ON THE SCREEN THIS IS SO CREAPY CAUSE IT ACTUALLY WORKS
