15 Things We Can't Live Without
Those of Rose

Let's say that homo sapiens came from apes, crazy idea..I know but just go with it. That would mean that we are animals, you know, creatures! Which would make me assume that we have instincts and talents. Things that would allow for the survival of the fittest. But we have traveled very far from our ape-man roots and I think on Doomsday without these essential keys of life, no one will make it! Human kind as it is known by hopefully only human kind, will be lost. Without these 15 things, it's over. No one could possibly survive, no matter their survival instincts. These are 15 things that we cannot live without and if you don't believe me, just try to live without them.

1. Chocolate & Sweets

Chocolate when I am mad or when I am sad. Chocolate when I am happy and when I am tired. Chocolate when I am bored, chocolate all of the damn time.

2. Dogs & Pets

If you can live without that, you let me know..so I can ignore your existence.

3. Music & Media

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F6361121256235697971758311322_music.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=737&h=4d4e930d1abf80e810085e1688880ad23f868ed3ddc7d5218e2ba37c23621057&size=980x&c=995998571 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F6361121256235697971758311322_music.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D737%26h%3D4d4e930d1abf80e810085e1688880ad23f868ed3ddc7d5218e2ba37c23621057%26size%3D980x%26c%3D995998571%22%7D" expand=1]

Putting headphones on or even blasting speakers just to escape the world and the sound of my sister singing in the shower, ahhhhh we all need that.

4. Cuddles & Love

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F636112127161717638-871673970_cuddles%25202.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=91&h=3c6dd6a8eb55d9f554bfa19fedfe589838c9242a5c0a8086f4ad0e243d47108f&size=980x&c=3687843177 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F636112127161717638-871673970_cuddles%2525202.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D91%26h%3D3c6dd6a8eb55d9f554bfa19fedfe589838c9242a5c0a8086f4ad0e243d47108f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3687843177%22%7D" expand=1]

How could one survive without the essence of a cuddle?

5. Friends & Family

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F636112127977164028-1056773158_friends.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=983&h=d0d62a011e9d8f2239b47604beb6a25978931a451a4f73f2157623de478ead08&size=980x&c=2877757215 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F636112127977164028-1056773158_friends.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D983%26h%3Dd0d62a011e9d8f2239b47604beb6a25978931a451a4f73f2157623de478ead08%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2877757215%22%7D" expand=1]

Someone has to be there to drink, cry and be evil with, every time.

6. Money

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F636112130431783474-73799613_money.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=453&h=64c99eb1344bcb5ed90f3753c2e6d3477788e316bb9da87816cb358dc1c700e0&size=980x&c=4177003393 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F636112130431783474-73799613_money.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D453%26h%3D64c99eb1344bcb5ed90f3753c2e6d3477788e316bb9da87816cb358dc1c700e0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4177003393%22%7D" expand=1]

Let's face it, all we have to do is make enough money to not be homeless and die. Those are basically the two universal goals of life.

7. The Internet

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F6361121313775625391741745015_internet.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=213&h=f142f0dbfb46c23b11b731c2f8510219c8465b6d504e35f388e14f2c6ae4ec9e&size=980x&c=527466720 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F6361121313775625391741745015_internet.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D213%26h%3Df142f0dbfb46c23b11b731c2f8510219c8465b6d504e35f388e14f2c6ae4ec9e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D527466720%22%7D" expand=1]

It has been many years since we have looked to concrete slabs and cave drawings to learn information, what would survival be without Google?

8. Smartphones

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F6361121325133205771432093004_smartphone.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=747&h=c56b0e1592eeebd5eef4aed5e9082da8bf3b7793446533d9b87c6f1ce6850537&size=980x&c=1806049709 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F6361121325133205771432093004_smartphone.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D747%26h%3Dc56b0e1592eeebd5eef4aed5e9082da8bf3b7793446533d9b87c6f1ce6850537%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1806049709%22%7D" expand=1]

To be blunt, one cannot live without their life...

9. Ice Cream

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F636112133229388570-432279971_ice%2520cream.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=793&h=d99cfaf7ef67330aa63932afa97f0cfc345e14520bf35156d8b65db814e7c96b&size=980x&c=1127224922 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F636112133229388570-432279971_ice%252520cream.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D793%26h%3Dd99cfaf7ef67330aa63932afa97f0cfc345e14520bf35156d8b65db814e7c96b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1127224922%22%7D" expand=1]

The sweet, cold churned beauty that is appropriate for all times of the day with endless options of toppings, garments and sugary attributes. Nothing can compare to the glimmering melt of ice cream and no one can live without it...unless you don't like it or are lactose intolerant in which case, nevermind.

10. Wine

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F6361121341120153631253174463_wine.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=866&h=869bcc627d228abaac21ed388edf1792bdc8b9f646675ed03043dcf6038e77f2&size=980x&c=1583825872 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F6361121341120153631253174463_wine.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D866%26h%3D869bcc627d228abaac21ed388edf1792bdc8b9f646675ed03043dcf6038e77f2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1583825872%22%7D" expand=1]

Sometimes, you just gotta lean your head back and forget about some things, it also goes PERFECT with cheese, which if you hadn't heard, I like. (So sorry, inside joke).

11. Days Off

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F06%2F636113930417888360-841525756_days%2520off.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=127&h=232227b6c1728a7a806ee137d8c56b31893836dc23941ae76947ce2406ca5616&size=980x&c=2625788690 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F06%252F636113930417888360-841525756_days%252520off.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D127%26h%3D232227b6c1728a7a806ee137d8c56b31893836dc23941ae76947ce2406ca5616%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2625788690%22%7D" expand=1]

Thank you Bueller, finally, someone understands me! I had 42 absences in the 12th grade. And I am a complete nurd. So, sometimes you just have to take a day off to survive. Also, other sources of knowledge have much more interesting topics than public school..

12. Netflix

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F06%2F636113929781806424-1135604168_ntlfix.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=963&h=98ff92c16e6a773988663ac24e183bf5b4242048f51b7ac36e8a901c78fd979f&size=980x&c=3618265297 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F06%252F636113929781806424-1135604168_ntlfix.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D963%26h%3D98ff92c16e6a773988663ac24e183bf5b4242048f51b7ac36e8a901c78fd979f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3618265297%22%7D" expand=1]

Netflix is to me as water is to Bikini Bottom.

13. Luck

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F6361121372699929631732023240_luck.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=281&h=f820c52bb8c1601921f31f423fd2f0a98ae48d5ce41b1737adbd247d82704c05&size=980x&c=2005030242 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F6361121372699929631732023240_luck.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D281%26h%3Df820c52bb8c1601921f31f423fd2f0a98ae48d5ce41b1737adbd247d82704c05%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2005030242%22%7D" expand=1]

Without a little luck, well, you'd probably be dead. Think of how lucky you are every day to not got through some of the traumas you see others go through, and perhaps they are not going to survive. You need some luck!

14. Inspiration

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F636112138259361464-402565487_happy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=405&h=a9e459ed7bb4764e4523a232bfcc774385f132d59c9a4fd3cc5a93f78c6e2703&size=980x&c=1816528553 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F636112138259361464-402565487_happy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D405%26h%3Da9e459ed7bb4764e4523a232bfcc774385f132d59c9a4fd3cc5a93f78c6e2703%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1816528553%22%7D" expand=1]

You can't survive without the motivation to survive! It'll be tough to survive the apocalypse, only the ones who truly want it will survive.

15. Day & Night

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F06%2F636113935837040615-1828283957_day-night.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=631&h=476a204269ccd7cf9f0aad465030ec4ff65859ffe1281a3838b66d68ab5d8b89&size=980x&c=3369497994 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F06%252F636113935837040615-1828283957_day-night.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D631%26h%3D476a204269ccd7cf9f0aad465030ec4ff65859ffe1281a3838b66d68ab5d8b89%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3369497994%22%7D" expand=1]

Think about never having a time to close your eyes? I would never make it without the ability to leave for a little bit.

So no, you don't need Oxygen or natural resources or water or a heart. That's a myth, these are what you really need.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

2197

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

Rich Schultz/Getty Images

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred.
