Happy writing!

On April 11, 1774, in the Hotel de Noailles chapel, the Vicar General of Paris married the young couple. … The guests were a very elegant group in their silks, brocades, laces, and feathers, the women ablaze in their jewelry. There were ducs, duchesses, comtes, comtesses, and high clergy. Among them were Louis-Stanislas-Xavier, Comte de Provence, and the Comte d'Artois, who would become kings of France as Louis XVIII and Charles X.

How could this exalted company know that the sixteen-year-old groom, whose awkwardness amused them so much, would play a preeminent role in ending their world of privilege? How could they imagine that the fourteen-year-old bride, tightly laced within an inch of suffocation, would become one of the world’s great heroines?

—  General and Madame de Lafayette, Jacob Lane; on their wedding, and those in attendance

casually rewriting notes in the lib, I’m surprisingly a lot less stressed than I thought I would be for this busy busy week. tomorrow I have a genetics exam, Tuesday I have a presentation and paper due (both of which are barely started…), and an exam on Thursday (that I’ve yet to even take notes on!!). I think I’ll be okay though; I just feel so great right now, honestly. I am so relaxed and can’t wait to get up and work out tomorrow! definitely an arm day 👍
