any advice on getting rid of ch*nyeol thirst? I know he isn't worth the time but then he speaks and Things happen. forgive me for I have sinned.

well tbh anon i dont rly know how to help because i personally have never suffered from that particular affliction (i’d like to thank god and also jesus btw) the best I can tell you to do is to be careful and dont be too invested in the dude bc the problem wit stannin problematic ppl is that will disappoint you and after a while your gonna get tired of it. 

like for instance wit chanope i was never interested in him bc i just never got his appeal, and seeing him be rude over and over again just rly turned me off even more so thats how i evaded the thirst.

over all tho i knw its hard when u like someone who is problematic™ we all have that one fave who we like despite the fact they are shyty in some way (like rly i am in this same boat) so just keep ya feels light and eventually u wont have them anymore.

now if u want instant results my deacon makes house calls so if you give me your info ill send him over, no need to thank me im just doing my part like the woman of god i am.

Stay blessed anon.

The Royal Greenhouses of Laeken (Dutch: Koninklijke Serres van Laken, French: Serres Royales de Laeken), are a vast complex of monumental heated greenhouses in the park of the Royal Palace of Laeken in the north of Brussels. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the city.

The complex was commissioned by King Leopold II and designed by Alphonse Balat. Built between 1874 and 1895, the complex was finished with the completion of the so-called “Iron Church”, a domed greenhouse that would originally serve as the royal chapel. The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). 800,000 liters (over 200,000 US gallons) of fuel oil are needed each year to heat the buildings.

The complex can only be visited during a two-week period in April–May each year, when most flowers are in full bloom.

1800s Week!

Charles Cordier

African Venus

France (1851)

Bronze, 39.5 cm.

The Walters Museum:

Cordier submitted a plaster cast of the bust of an African visitor to Paris to the Salon of 1848, and two years later he again entered it as a bronze (Walters 54.2664). A young African woman served as the model for this companion piece in 1851. Regarded as powerful expressions of nobility and dignity, these sculptures proved to be highly popular: casts were acquired by the Museum of National History in Paris and also by Queen Victoria. The Walters’ pair were cast by the Paris foundry Eck and Durand in 1852. These bronzes were esteemed by 19th-century viewers as expressions of human pride and dignity in the face of grave injustice.

[mod note]

One of the things I love most about this piece is that you get something new from almost every single angle.
