Out of the Ordinary :)

Hello girls !

Today I wanted to encourage all of you to sign the petition to stop SOPA AND PIPA, which are two laws that will change the internet as we know it.

They are basically laws that will censor many things, such as playing a song in the background of a video on youtube.

Here is a video talking about it:


Please google more information if you are unsure what it is.

Please please please sign this petition if you live in the States, and pass it along !
