10 Signs You Were Raised By Hispanic Mothers

There's much more to latin mothers than just chanclas and arroz con pollo. I was mainly raised by my mother and my abuela, so not only was my childhood full of delicious food, but it was also a compilation of all soap operas.

Waking up was a daily struggle—but now that I am in college here in the United States, I miss them more than ever. (Especially because I have to survive on frozen waffles and Mountain Dew.)

Here are some reasons why my childhood was awesome and slightly traumatizing (in a good way).

1. Vicks VapoRub is and will always be the cure to every disease...ever.

2. Edgar Allan Poe and H.P Lovecraft will never beat your mom's missed calls.

3. When you cause a scene in public and she hits you with the devil's look (and you secretly hope she gets drunk or wins the lottery by the time you get home).

4. "Talk to your aunt."

5. These are the reasons we have so many trust issues:

6. If something hurts, it is because you are always on your phone.

7. When you told a joke and it turned into a four hour lecture.

8. "Qué dijiste?" Oh, she heard you. She is giving you a chance for you to take back what you said and probably move to Germany and start a new life.

9. "Deja que llegue tu papá." You're screwed. Really screwed.

10. Your grandma was always the Hylian shield to your link.

But after all, they were heroes. Heroes with hair rollers, chanclas and amazing food. Heroes that once they put a foot outside the door, became the most beautiful, strongest, smartest, and caring women we've all ever seen.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
