14 Reasons Why My Mom Is The Best
Sierra Spraker

Growing up I preferred my dad over my mom, but since about 10th grade my mom has been easier to relate to. Before I knew it, my mom became my best friend and being away from her has done nothing but show that she is one of my best friends.

  1. She was always patient
    • I was a slow eater when I was younger, but my mom never rushed me.
  2. She always knew when I did something wrong.
    • But most of the time she let me get away with it because karma always came back for me.
  3. She taught me the basics of life.
    • Without my mom I wouldn’t know how to do such basic things in life (laundry, boil an egg, sew a button, and so much more.)
  4. She is always supportive.
    • Throughout high school, and even now in college, I’ve changed what I want to do with my life so so many times, but no matter what I want to do my mom has my back.
  5. She let me learn how to deal with the fights I pick.
    • When my sister and I would fight, most of the time she let us fight it out. And even in school when I got picked on, she made me take care of it.
  6. She somehow managed to fit my crazy schedule in with hers.
    • In high school I participated in way too many clubs and sports, but my mom always found a way to get me there and home.
  7. She always made a boring vacation fun.
    • One year we traveled to a bunch of different of caverns, which bored me. But my mom managed to fit in fun activities like the National Corvette Museum.
  8. She’s always my #1 fan.
    • She supported me in everything, but she always found a way to go above and beyond to show that she was my biggest supporter. She very rarely missed a softball game or even a practice.
  9. She taught me to love some amazing sports teams.
    • Now this may sound a little bias, but my mom taught me to love my hometown sports teams. I will forever be an Oriole’s and Ravens fan.
  10. She gave me life.
    • Obviously without my mom I would be nowhere.
  11. She always found a way to spoil me.
    • I know money has been tight for a while, but my mom always finds a way to give a little something here and there.
  12. She has loved me since day 1.
    • I wasn’t the best child growing up and I had my fair share of bad days, but my mom loved me through it all.
  13. She taught me tough love.
    • My mom is pretty stubborn, so I’m pretty sure she has passed some of that onto me (along with her attitude.)
  14. She is irreplaceable.
    • Although sometimes she is my worst enemy, she is mostly my best friend and I would never trade her for the world.

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.
