13 Songs For 13 Miles
Anna Tust

A half marathon is a pretty long ways if you ask me. 13 whole miles of running is typically not my type of fun. Some people can run on pure adrenaline, but I'm also not that kind of person. Music is what I use to fuel my runs, especially the long ones. Clearly this isn't enough music to get me through almost 3 hours of running but, here are 13 of my favorite songs that help me to get through 13 miles!

1. Dessert - Dawin ft. Silento

Trust me Dawin, the dessert is the first thing I’m looking forward to the minute I’m done running.

2. Gibberish - MAX ft. Hoodie Allen

If you try to talk to me while I’m running, I can promise all that will come out of my mouth will be gibberish.

3. Team - Iggy Azalea

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Iggy knows how to make me feel like quite the empowered woman.

4. Guillotine - Jon Bellion

The French may have thought a guillotine was good punishment…they also could have used running, for sure.

5. 2 Phones - Kevin Gates

Well Kevin Gates, you may have 2 phones, but I have 2 legs .. that will carry my 13 whole miles…hopefully…if we’re lucky…

6. Coffee Break - Kyle Lucas

As nice as a coffee break sounds, I’m sure a water break would be even nicer!

7. My Couch - Jake Miller

Yeah, I’d definitely rather be on my couch too…

8. Tidal Wave - EVVY

Did we lose everything in the tidal wave? I mean I didn’t but I sure look like I got hit with one based on how much I’m sweating…

9. How I Want Ya (Dawin Remix) - Hudson Thames ft. Hailee Steinfeld

In this case, "how I want ya" refers to my feelings towards the food at the end, or maybe even a bottle of water.

10. Fergalicious - Fergie

If Fergie is still up in the gym just working on her fitness, I think that means I better be too..

11. Does Ya Mama Know (Dance Like That) - 99 Percent

I don’t have a clever catch line for this song, but it gets me hyped every time it comes on. Every single time.

12. Panda - Desiigner

Panda. Panda. Panda. Panda. Panda. Panda. Panda. Panda. Panda. Panda.

13. Kiiara - Gold

Gold. The color my participation medal better be once I cross the finish line.

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