Being snowed in can really lead to a loss of sanity.

10 Things To Do To Keep Yourself From Losing It When You Are Snowed In

December has passed, and now it is the start of a new year. While we bring in the new year, many of us also bring in colder weather. We've made it through Decembers chilly temperatures, but really, we haven't seen anything yet. January and February are likely to bring us large snow storms that will keep us from doing anything for multiple days. There are many things that you can do, though, to keep your sanity in tact while stuck inside for multiple days.

1. Make some tea/coffee/hot cocoa

There is nothing a warm drink can't fix on a cold day.

2. Go For A Walk

Yeah, it is cold. But the snow can also be really beautiful and serene.

3. Bundle up and get cozy

This is my favorite thing to do when it gets cold out.

4. Make a nice winter meal

It's time to break out that soup recipe you found on pinterest... if you have all the ingredients.

5. Use it as an excuse to not doing anything

If you've had a busy time at school or work, use this snow day as an excuse to do absolutely nothing and turn your mind off for the day.

6. Go out and play in the snow.

Playing in the snow is definitely fun at any age.

7. Make a fire if you can.

This one isn't always possible, but if you can making a fire and laying around with a nice book is always a good relaxing option.

8. Catch up on your reading/work

If you feel a burst of energy, use this as an excuse to bust out some work you've been needing to get done.

9. If you have animals, take them out to play in the snow.

Because dogs playing in the snow are basically the cutest things ever.

10. Online shop for clothes for warmer weather.

And then be upset for the next three months when you can't wear them.

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. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.
