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

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F04%2F6361121249668623621694355690_dog.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=851&h=74e494c1da175494721faa5564bd5dd49439812c20e90e14ed1dac9f8f43950d&size=980x&c=2955527617 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F04%252F6361121249668623621694355690_dog.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D851%26h%3D74e494c1da175494721faa5564bd5dd49439812c20e90e14ed1dac9f8f43950d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2955527617%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me

https://unsplash.com/photos/O0T1SIgHAfM

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.
