25 Times You Miss Your Mom In College

Because mom really does know best.

25 Times You Miss Your Mom In College
Emily Neyland

Moms are the best. But when you go to college, they're not there to tell you how to do things all the time. For a time, it's great, but it also makes you realize how much you miss her. (Thanks for taking care of me so well at home, Mom.)

So, here's a list of the times I've realized just how much you miss my mom in college.

You miss your mom in college when you're:

1. Staring into your fridge and wondering, "What can I even make with all this?"

2. Figuring out which medicines to take when you're sick.

3. Searching the grocery store for that one item.

4. Buying produce at the grocery store (how do you tell if a pineapple is good?)

5. Debating if you should wash your "dry clean only" clothes.

6. Signing the lease for your first house/apartment.

7. Eating the same dining hall food every single day of the week.

8. Needing something to be sewn.

9. Looking at a stain on your shirt and wondering, "Will that ever come out?"

14. Needing someone to force you to work out.

15. Attempting to pay the bills.

16. Seasoning chicken.

17. Wanting someone to ask you how your day was.

18. Making lunch for yourself.

19. Staring at that pile of dishes in the sink that you don't want to wash.

20. Paying for an overpriced meal and knowing mom could make it way better.

21. Picking out soap for the first time (there are so many kinds).

22. Tired of talking to your college friends.

23. Freaking out when a random light comes on in your car.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

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.

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.
