Spot cracked his knuckles and slid down the fire escape of the Brooklyn lodging, pulling a small thing of tobacco out of trousers pocket and slipping it into his mouth. He chewed it absently as he walked, his blue eyes locked firmly on the stars above him. He wasn’t doing much, really; just walking, and thinking. Thinking about anything that crossed his mind. His family, the boys, Jack and his boys back in Manhattan, selling, a boy that owed up at least ten cents more than he’d borrowed originally. (He’d really have to have a talking to with that boy, soon.) He let his thoughts wander as he himself wandered, lost in thought about every little thing in the Spot Conlon universe.
I’ve been to the sixth tallest, the Beauvais Cathedral, and I’m currently reading up on all the ones I’ve been to and I’ve made a list of more places I want to visit.
The Beauvais Cathedral is especially awesome because you’re just drivin down this tiny street and suddenly there’s this absolutely humongous building right next to you and you didn’t see it coming since there are all these small houses lining the street and blocking your view. you’ll see what I mean if you go on google maps and streetview 30 Rue Jean Racine, Beauvais, France… if you can be fucked lol
The cathedral has suffered from two major collapses; the first happened only a few years after it was completed, and the second occurred about two-hundred years after the initial construction began because they attempted to add an insanely high church tower to make it the second tallest structure in the world. but ironically, the tower caved-in during a service on Ascension Day in 1573.
it’s still standing though, and there’s all this scaffolding stuff on the outside so it’s difficult to get a nice photo of it. steel trusses have recently been installed to stop it from falling apart again, and they’re studying all this complicated architectural stuff to work out how they can preserve it :3
I need someone that I’m comfortable letting in. Someone who’s affection I can accept and not let make me feel weird. Someone I don’t feel belittled by. Someone who can make me feel like I’m actually good enough, if only for them. Someone to just be there no matter what I do and not leave because of my relentless depressing crap. Someone who makes me not want to be alone all the time. Someone who understands and is compassionate even when I’m being the most ridiculous person I could possibly be. Someone that I feel a mad love for, like I used to feel. Someone I’m completely content with, and someone that I don’t have to doubt is content with me.
I'VE FINISHED MY A-LEVELS, MOFOS!!!!!
i’m so happy right now.
i never have to go to school again!
i don’t have to wake up and think “i need to revise”
basically, i can do whatever the hell i want!
i’ve been on lock-down for the past 2 years. i have literally had NO social life, and NO fun. being happy was not a priority. i’ve been waiting for this moment for the past 2 years and i could not be happier about its arrival.
N.B. to anyone considering doing A-levels: if you can avoid them, AVOID THEM!
