I just accidentally spilled ice cold water all down my front
on the plus side, it’s so hot, it’s mostly just pleasant rather than annoying
Maybe I”ll buy myself an Olivia doll as a keepsake. I don’t have any photographs from Rainbows because safeguarding, but it would be nice to have a memento to keep/take with me. I mean, I’ve been doing Rainbows for four years
my Mum came back from picking my little sister up from her last day at her primary school
and one of my Rainbow parents gave her a present for me, since I’ll be leaving for University, and they didn’t know I was leaving until our last meeting and couldn’t give it to us then
It’s a door stop, and a very cute one at that, as you can see. The Rainbow’s Mum added a little note on the end, that open doors welcome friends in the first week of dorm.
I’m a bit of a mess right now. These girls have been a significant part of my life for the past four years, and I nave loved working with them for the past four years and watching them grow so much. It’s always a privilege to be involved in someone’s life and to be trusted, and I shall miss them and their laughter and enthusiasm for a very, very long time. They are a joy.
I wish them all the best in everything they do, and I hope I shall be able to visit them some time ♥
Why am I awake who summoned me
Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets after you’ve read it several times? As if something was left between each page every time you read it, feelings, thoughts, sounds

Actually, ‘fall’ has its origins as an Anglo-Saxon word, and was popularized for use to denote the season around the 16th century from the poetic term ‘the fall of leaf.’ In the language that would develop after 1066, words that were coded as being common or lowly generally had Anglo-Saxon roots while the ‘educated’ words of the elite had French and Latin roots. This is why, even in modern English, we use ‘cow,’ which has an Anglo-Saxon origin, for the animal out in the field and ‘beef,’ which has a French origin, for the food to be consumed. The poor handle the animal while the rich eat the meat, and that is reflected in the language. The language of the conquerors was elevated while the language of the conquered was made base and common. If ‘autumn’ sounds smarter than ‘fall,’ that is only the linguistic snobbery of history talking.
Thank you. I was too lazy to find my post.
Fun related fact - the meaning of the word “November” in several Slavic languages (and “October” in Croatian because fuck you that’s why) - variations on listopad - is also named for falling leaves, list being “leaf” and pad being “fall”.
characters that go through hell yet still believe in the goodness of humanity, still hope for the best despite everything, refuse to let darkness consume them because someone somewhere is always going to be good are literally my favourite, because they give me that little hope too
hmmmm food for thought
