13 And A Half Reasons Why I Love Unit 13 1/2

I couldn't have picked anyone better to call my friends.

13 And A Half Reasons Why I Love Unit 13 1/2
Sydney Benton

Coming into college, I was especially worried that I would have a hard time making quality friends. Now I am no longer "new" to college anymore, I am beyond grateful for the people that live in my hallway (and the one person that basically lives there) because they are truly the best group of people I have ever met. Whether they're in Unit 13 or Unit 14, there's definitely something special about the group called "Unit 13 1/2".

1. Laughing

When are we not laughing? Someone is always saying or doing something hilarious, and some people just laugh hilariously. It seems like someone's knee-pits are constantly sweating because something funny is always being said.

2. Heart to Heart Conversations

When we're not laughing, we can be serious too. It's great to have friends that you can talk to when you're having a rough day. Having group therapy sessions when you're not sure what to do with your life is one major benefit of being in our friend group.

3. Vape, Vape Tricks, Second-Hand Vape, Watching Vape Clouds

Despite the warnings that "Vaping causes cancer," it's still fun to watch that one BIG vape guy do his cool vape tricks. Even though you have to risk inhaling second-hand vape smoke, deep conversations can come from laying on the floor watching someone vape.

4. Our Differences Bring Us Together

We're all from different places, in different sororities, and have different majors. We're different, but that's what makes us work so well.

5. "Big, Huge, Major"

This won't make sense to anyone on the outside, but these phrases are used to dramatize 80% of the things we talk about.

6. Unproductivity

You can never get anything done when the group is around. If you actually want to get your homework done, you have to lock yourself in your room or go to the library.

7. Crying

You know you've made good friends when you're comfortable crying in front of them.

8. Hidden Keys

We know where everyone hides their keys, so it's not atypical to come back from class and see your friend sitting in your room waiting for you.

9. Late Nights and Lack of Sleep

Why get 8 hours of sleep when you can stay up and talk to your friends? You can sleep when you're old, but you only get one chance to make great memories like this.

10. Never Being Alone

Literally, never. There's always someone to go get dinner with, or someone is always in your room telling you about their day.

11. Hallway Conversations

People often ask, "What are you guys doing out here?" Sometimes we're talking, sometimes we're listening to music and dancing, and sometime's we're just sitting on the floor scrolling through our phones.

12. Hugs

Individual hugs, group hugs, side hugs, full hugs, and even unwanted hugs. For some reason, our group is always hugging! I guess, maybe we just really love each other!

13. Sunday Morning Sink Conversations

We always end up standing in the bathroom telling stories about the weekend as we brush our teeth on Sunday Morning. These convos seem miniscule, but they're a great way to end the weekend!

13 1/2. They're All Great People

I am so thankful I met such a great group of individuals!

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