10 Things You'll Understand if You are Left Handed
Hello Giggles

1. Group classroom seating is a struggle.

No, I really am not trying to bump elbows with you during this test but I can't help it.

2. Because of that, you will always volunteer to sit at the left end of the table to avoid elbow bumps.

I will willingly put myself away from the conversation at the center if it means not knocking elbows.

3. Desks that are attached to seats are hopeless.

Seriously, who thought this was a good idea?

4. Your hand will ache after a few minutes of using standard scissors.

Left handed scissors are more expensive and harder to find, so our cuts are always jagged because the scissors don't work right when held upside down. #justiceforlefties

5. You know the pain of writing in general.

You end up with ink or graphite smudges all over your pinky and the side of your hand (lovingly named "Silver Surfer Syndrome from the graphite leaving you with silver skin), your letters are all smudged, and you have marks on your arm from the spiral in your notebook.

6. At some point you'll realize that left-handed notebooks are just highly priced notebooks turned upside down.

Seriously, once I realized that flipping my notebook was the same thing, my life was CHANGED!

7. You can almost never read what a cute mug says on it because you have to hold it backwards.

8. Can openers? More like medieval torture devices for left handed people.

Really though, people only ask lefties to open cans for entertainment.

9. When someone finds out you are left handed, they will tell you about someone else they know who is left handed.

"Oh my gosh you're a lefty? My uncle is a lefty." Thank you for sharing.

10. However, when you see someone else who is a lefty, you both get really excited.

Hello, rare friend of mine. We are united in our elbow-bumping struggles.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

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.

Kinder Self - Eyes

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.
