Tea leaves collected from Boston harbor the morning after the Boston Tea Party.
“Tea that was gathered up on the Shore of Dorchester Neck on the morning after the destruction of the three Cargos at Boston December 17, 1773.”
i’m so pleased that this means someone during the event was like “yeah this is probably gonna be historically interesting” and just ran out there with, like, what, a net? some cloth? fishing around in the fucking bay to collect tea to put in a bottle? you go, buddy
Good job, anonymous 18th century person. Your commitment to historic preservation pleases me.
I finally finished unpacking most of my stuff but I still have a lot to go. Why, when I got here at 2pm this afternoon? BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER SEEN MORE SPIDERS IN A LIVED IN HOUSE THAN IN THIS ONE. And I literally cannot fall asleep now no matter what I try and I’m afraid to turn the fucking light off which hasn’t happened to me since I was in elementary school like, I earlier was thinking like, my arachnophobia isn’t all that bad! But after so many spiders like, it’s suddenly way worse than it’s ever been before aha haaaaa
Trying to fill up my queue again because it is PROBABLY a good idea for me to hiatus from tumblr again this semester. So if I’m sparse in the next month or so that’s why.
Also like I packed a shit ton of stuff but I’m still not done. Whyyy
This packing struggle is SO REAL.
I just thought to myself, “Wow I wish I had a friend here to help me pack.”
But then I remembered, that the last time I had two friends here and I was supposed to be packing, we all ended up playing on our 3DS’ instead…
