"There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures". - Shakespeare
Cross Spire Fountain Pen Black Caviar, AT0566-1MD - Brand New in Collectables, Pens & Writing Equipment, Pens | eBay
I bought this (beautiful) fountain pen a few weeks ago, and it kind of breaks my heart to part with it, but it’s too inconvenient for me to be writing with a fountain pen, and I didn’t want to let it gather dust in an unused drawer somewhere.
The one benefit from working at a slow job in a upmarket retail department is that I inevitably now know my shit about pens. This is a pen you should get, especially if you’re put off by fountain pens that are bulky and thick. This one is perfect (and yes, genuinely, it’s original RRP was £210.)
Woah post a painting of a dude’s nice, pert butt and all the likes come pouring out. Tumblr’s made for butts, both real and painted, apparently.
It took me fifty minutes to print off a past paper in the UCL library. The printer jammed three times, charged me ten times the amount it’s supposed to, ran out of credit, ran out of ink, deleted itself from my computer, refused to reinstall, and then installed incorrectly.
MY DEGREE IS EASIER THAN THIS.
"And the thing to do, it seems to me…is to prepare yourself so that you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you…may not call God the same name you call God…if they call God at all. You see? And may not eat the same dishes prepared the way you do…may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody."
