This isolated lighthouse called Tevennec, which stands on an uninhabited island in the coast of France, has been known to make its past occupants mad. So why is this man willing to spend 60 days living here?
Marc Pointud is the founder of the National Society for Heritage, Lighthouses, and Beacons, which aims to preserve the lost lighthouses in the country. He plans to live in the lighthouse for around two months, all by himself. Now this lighthouse has become infamous because of the stories about former lightkeepers losing their minds during their stay. It is also plagued with ghost stories and tales of mysterious deaths.
Tevennec has been around since 1875 and legend says that the first guard went completely insane.
The combination of crashing waves and sharp rocks is a treacherous condition for sailors, and many lives have been lost in this terrifying location.
Pointud wants to raise awareness of the lighthouse as a landmark and to celebrate its 140th birthday. He plans to turn Tevennec into an artist’s residence and has started a crowd-funded campaign for the project.
“There’s no furniture. It’s completely abandoned. I’m going to bring a couple of bits and pieces — a bed, a chair, a table, food, and some stuff to write with. It’s going to be a bit like being a prisoner, I suppose. The lighthouse is fully automated, so I don’t have to operate it or anything. There’s no running water, no electricity, no heating. It’s going to cost a fortune to refurbish that place. That’s why we are crowd-funding this project.” he said in an interview.
Pointud will be the first man to occupy the lighthouse in 100 years. He intends to have access to the outside world to combat the perils of isolation.

Boy Grows His Own Hair For Charity And Didn’t Let Bullies Stop Him.
8-year-old boy decided to grow his own hair to help some kids with cancer who lost theirs.
What will make a young boy grow his own hair long enough like a girl and stand being teased by other people? It's inspiring to know that for 8-year-old Christian McPhilamy, it only took a commercial he saw on TV to do such. The said advertisement was for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with many children who are sick and without hair.
After his mom explained about chemotherapy and its side effects, he figured out what to do next. Christian came to a decision--to grow his hair out long enough to donate it to the young cancer patients who need it more.
After two years, Christian is rocking his 10-inches long hair.
Her Teacher Told Her She’s Just a ‘Waste of Time’. Look at this Teenage Mom Now!
She got pregnant and was homeless in eight grade. But this young woman beat the odds and graduated on top of her class!
In the United States alone, there are approximately 820,000 teenage pregnancies documented yearly.
And when a girl gets pregnant at a very young age, people typically expect the worst. Most people assume that teenage moms would never be able to juggle their lives between school and raising a kid. Deep inside, they are probably thinking that she would end up dropping out of school and/ or placing the child in foster care.
Other people tend to put them in a box and draw their own life for them--telling them what they can and cannot do or achieve for themselves. It would be as if the teenage mom had relinquished her own life and freedom by becoming a mother at a young age....
