- Pictures taken: 1000+, but much less than should have.
- Primary camera: iPhone 5.

The list of the english wiki is pretty much predictable – companies, books, movies and news. Only one unknown term – but now I know that One Direction is yet another boy band (and hey, it’s been a good while since the previous).
