15 Thoughts I Had While Watching The Olympics
Daily Mail

Now that the Olympics are over, the buzz is slowly dying. Pretty soon we will be focused on football season. While we move on to other sporting events, none have quite the hype of the Olympics. Those who love sports and those who hate them tune in to see each country represented in the Olympics by the greatest athletes in history. You have your favorite athlete, favorite sport and of course, favorite country. Mine were Simone Biles, Volleyball, and USA, of course. While watching the events, I had all kinds of thoughts, like "Why is Simone Biles so darn cute?" Here are 15 of my thoughts I has while watching the Olympics:

1. "Why in the world did I quit (certain sport)? I could be an Olympic gold medalist."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F6360740469110931441426194447_10-hernandez-medal.nocrop.w529.h301.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=722&h=7977d8daa342919df0eb78695b4dfeaafca2a436de9676d8897ee62918e2825c&size=980x&c=1730567111 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F6360740469110931441426194447_10-hernandez-medal.nocrop.w529.h301.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D722%26h%3D7977d8daa342919df0eb78695b4dfeaafca2a436de9676d8897ee62918e2825c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1730567111%22%7D" expand=1]

Gymnastics was my certain sport. I could just see me tumbling on the floor and flipping over the balance beam. In reality, I would have landed on my head while tumbling and probably would have broken a bone (or several) on the balance beam. Gymnastics wasn't my strong suit, it is probably best I leave it to a professional.

2. "Wow. Are they human?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636074046358245709-1334115164_resize%2520%281%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=264&h=99231f23519f854b34738cd91a54c436a726f9ac57fbe68711c5a80381494776&size=980x&c=286202154 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636074046358245709-1334115164_resize%252520%25281%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D264%26h%3D99231f23519f854b34738cd91a54c436a726f9ac57fbe68711c5a80381494776%26size%3D980x%26c%3D286202154%22%7D" expand=1]

There is no way a body can just move like that and not break. I mean, mine would.

3. "What does Michael Phelps do with all those medals? Does he just wear them around the house all the time?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F6360740477316705701603613417_rs_480x270-160129071549-phelps4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=487&h=55b11e6650ec059c16621535431b95640db6aba0f17b4fd4be34f60a698644fb&size=980x&c=606950945 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F6360740477316705701603613417_rs_480x270-160129071549-phelps4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D487%26h%3D55b11e6650ec059c16621535431b95640db6aba0f17b4fd4be34f60a698644fb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D606950945%22%7D" expand=1]

*Postman comes to the door* *Phelps answers wearing all of his medals*

4. "Who would win a race, Bolt or a cheetah?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636074048474177822-1577605595_boltlol2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=382&h=261dfe56909f72a1cd62bead49994ea3108048092fd1dd3d6175ae803f5a0aed&size=980x&c=1175849337 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636074048474177822-1577605595_boltlol2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D382%26h%3D261dfe56909f72a1cd62bead49994ea3108048092fd1dd3d6175ae803f5a0aed%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1175849337%22%7D" expand=1]

Bolt, definitely.

5. "Of course he is the fastest man in the world, with a last name like Bolt it comes with the title."

Like did his family change their name when they saw him run or did his last name just inspire him?

6. "Is he really that fast, or is that just my HDTV enhancing him?"

He must be a robot. (see #2)

7. "How do they flip on a balance beam and still land on it?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636074052624600074871332238_PunchFrontLeap.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=309&h=8bc63bd0adc4c4f43d7d68a4cd49e8888af6c8df7f52777e09331811bc0fc1bd&size=980x&c=1232325731 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636074052624600074871332238_PunchFrontLeap.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D309%26h%3D8bc63bd0adc4c4f43d7d68a4cd49e8888af6c8df7f52777e09331811bc0fc1bd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1232325731%22%7D" expand=1]

It is like they have a magnet that attracts them to the beam. My magnet is attracted to the floor.

8. "What does a gold medal taste like?"

They keep biting it and I just want to know.

9. "What could I win a gold medal in?"

Fencing? Rifle? Binge-watching? I'll go with Netflix.

10. "What in the world do they eat for breakfast?"

It can't be the cereal they are on because I eat that and have not seen a change in my abilities.

11. "I think I could do that trick. (Tries and completely fails) Never mind that."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636074055881582453166266753_landscape-1470412387-olympics-diving-gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=703&h=63dcc05f2e62ff7414af7a8bee398ed344498f1a0f6f257a65494235e45e7df5&size=980x&c=2022305517 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636074055881582453166266753_landscape-1470412387-olympics-diving-gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D703%26h%3D63dcc05f2e62ff7414af7a8bee398ed344498f1a0f6f257a65494235e45e7df5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2022305517%22%7D" expand=1]

Reason I am covered in bruises.

12. "Shoutout to the people competing against Phelps/Bolt, I would have given up with that name beside me."

Well, I would never be competing against them in the first place.

13. "How does one find/meet an Olympic athlete? Are they always at the gym?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636074057213516955-377646140_clean.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=990&h=3ecee9a500af5e2361578b0fa6a86d6a06b5ce545bb2ec0cac1bd68d581ddd32&size=980x&c=966403363 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636074057213516955-377646140_clean.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D990%26h%3D3ecee9a500af5e2361578b0fa6a86d6a06b5ce545bb2ec0cac1bd68d581ddd32%26size%3D980x%26c%3D966403363%22%7D" expand=1]

*buys a gym membership*

14. "When they fill out a resume (if they even have to do that) do they nonchalantly fill out they have so many gold medals and so may titles?"

I think I would automatically give them a job.

15. "Since the USA won all these medals, does that mean I have a higher chance of becoming an Olympian?"

I think there must be something in our water, but where can I find this water????

GO USA!!!!!

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.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.
