21 Thoughts You Have When You Turn 21

I recently turned 21. Exciting, I know. The day that you look forward to as soon as you walk onto a college campus... I mean... besides graduation. So here are 21 thoughts that I had as I finally turned 21.

1. Can you buy booze at the liquor store at midnight?

9. Oh, yeah, cool. I forever appreciate that the wait time for the DMV is 12 years long...

10. Cool, so the camera flash hid the bags under my eyes.

11. Can I buy booze now?


13. Oh, right... My ID is actually legal now.

14. Has alcohol always been this expensive?

15. *looks at Burnett's bottles* No, you're better than that. You're an adult.

16. Tequila? Yeah, that doesn't sound like a poor decision.

21. Holy S#*T, I have class in the morning...

However you spend your 21st, be sure to do so responsibly. Party hard, but most of all, party smart and safe. Don't drink and drive.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

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!"
