The thing that makes me happy, the thing that makes me passionate and excited above all else is art history. But every time I come close to doing a degree in it, something stops me. 

Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.

I saw that quote yesterday and I just feel like I should reapply, IDK. WHAT SHOULD I DO, TUMBLR????

mediumaevum:

The Chapel Bridge is the oldest covered wooden bridge in Europe and one of the most visited sites in Switzerland. Built in the 14th century, it was originally part of the defense system of the city of Lucerne. 

Next to the bridge and part of the old city wall, is the old wasserturm or water tower. This medieval brick building has served as a prison, torture chamber, watchtower, and treasury building and is the most frequently photographed monument in Switzerland.
