I’m simple: I don’t need expensive bags and I don’t need to be fetched around and I don’t need to be brought to hotels every day. I don’t need all that, I’m simple. I like busrides with you, I like enjoying each other’s company in silence and yet feeling utterly comfortable, I like walks home, I like cooking dinner together, I like hugs, I like it when you wipe away my tears when I cry. I like the simple things. I don’t need the riches to be happy. I just want the simplicities, the things that really matter. I just need someone to understand, someone not to yell at me when I accidentally give the wrong directions in the car, someone who won’t shout at me or say nasty things to me. That’s what I really need.
February 12th 1914: Lincoln Memorial groundbreaking
this day in 1914 in Washington DC, work officially began on the Lincoln
Memorial. There had been many attempts by Congress to build a monument
to the sixteenth president, famous for issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, and in 1910 a bill funding the memorial passed the Senate. On February
12th 1914, the 105th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, the
groundbreaking ceremony took place; the next year on the same day, the
cornerstone was laid. The memorial was completed in 1922, featuring a
statue of Lincoln and inscriptions of his famous Gettysburg Address and
Second Inaugural Address. Today, the memorial is an iconic tribute to one
of America’s greatest presidents, and has been the site of major events in American history, most famously Martin Luther King’s 1963 “I Have a Dream”
“IN THIS TEMPLE AS IN THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE FOR WHOM HE SAVED THE UNION THE MEMORY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN IS ENSHRINED FOREVER”
When I see you, the World stops. It stops and all that exists for me is you and my eyes staring at you. There’s nothing else. No noise, no other people, no thoughts or worries, no yesterday, no tomorrow. The World just stops, and it is a beautiful place, and there is only you.
Stayed in today. I hate to miss class, but I felt like my day would be more efficient and effective if I stayed home and studied all day. But it’s ok, because I’m studying for the class I missed. I have an exam on Tuesday and I am petrified, but I feel better after doing this necessary review and reading. I love this sticky note method! A lot or repetition, which is super important! 📚✔️💯
