The first woman to ask for divorce and lead an army, Eleanor of Aquitaine lived until she was 82 (pretty good considering most died in their 40s). She got a formal education, which was really rare for women in that era. There are rumours that she poisoned her second husband Henry II’s mistress, the Fair Rosamund.
so i made myself a new phone background
The Paris Commune (French: La Commune de Paris) was a revolutionary movement that briefly ruled Paris from 18 March until 28 May 1871.
On 2 September 1870, after his unexpected defeat at the Battle of Sedan in the Franco-Prussian War, Emperor Louis Napoleon III surrendered to the Prussian Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck. When the news reached Paris on 3 September, shocked and angry crowds came out into the streets, the Empress Eugenie, the regent of the Emperor, fled the city, and the Government of the Second Empire swiftly collapsed. Republican and radical deputies of the French National Assembly went to the Hotel de Ville and proclaimed the new French Republic, and formed a Government of National Defense. Though the Emperor and the French Army had been defeated at Sedan, the war continued. The German army marched swiftly toward Paris.
Of the two million people in Paris in 1869, according to the official census, there were about 500,000 industrial workers, or fifteen percent of all the industrial workers in France, plus another three to four hundred thousand workers in other enterprises. Only about 40,000 were employed in factories and large enterprises; most were employed in small workshops and businesses making clothing and textiles, furniture, and in construction. There were also 115,000 servants and 45,000 concierges. In addition to the native French population, there were about one hundred thousand immigrant workers and political refugees, the largest number being from Italy and Poland.
The French historian Jacques Rougerie, wrote in 2014: “the number ten thousand victims seems today the most plausible; it remains an enormous number for the time.”

Anyone who has the nerve to call your twenties ‘the waiting room of life’ must have never been there.

I just love the idea of a number being such a strong symbol !
Ce film me fait penser à Noémie à chaque fois.
Il me donne le smile, c’est mon “go-to” movie quand j’suis déprimée.
Totally random but : I’m interested in International affairs / International relations.
I’d love to work for a non-governmental organisation.. Spread love and peace around the world but most of all find SOLUTIONS ! Work my ass off to make people suffer less.
Travel, meet with new cultures and languages, help, make the world a better place.. I know it sounds cliché but.. I don’t know I just keep believing it’s possible.
And well, people will tell me that I don’t stand a chance, that there’s no way I can make the world better, but you know what ? Screw all of you who doubt me. Who doubt my abilities, my kindness, my motivations, my ideas and my understanding of the world.
Actually, for all of you out there, with dreams and hopes : Don’t you dare give a fuck about what people say on your projects and ideas. People will criticize you and underestimate you all the time.. Don’t let it get to you, don’t let them spread their venom.. You’re way too good for this ! WE WANT TO SEE your projects come true, we need you to change the world. Not in a utopic way but as real changes that will make the world take a step further away from hunger, despair, wars, crime, treachery …
Haha I didn’t know I would end up writing this but I just wanted to get it out of my system.
I would like to add that it’s your choice, your decision to stand up and start making these changes happen or to remain silent forever stuck in your comfort zone.
