5 Signs That You're An Independent Spirit
Allison Pericles

Everyone is alone at some point or another. For most people, being alone means feeling lonely. But for others, it means feeling liberated. How does being alone make you feel? If you lean more towards liberated, you're probably a pretty independent person. Here are five more signs that you're independent.

1. You're hesitant to ask for help for anything because you feel you can help yourself.

This is probably one of your worst traits, but it shows just how independent you are. You hate asking for help because it puts you in a vulnerable position and you feel as if you're damaging your pride, whether you're just assembling furniture or asking for a loan.

2. Your thoughts are well-developed.

While you sometimes feel conflicted, you're very in touch with yourself. You've probably thought out many details about yourself, and you've got a very strong and unique perception of the world, because you don't derive it from the perceptions of others.

3. You have no problem with doing things on your own.

You've grown accustomed to strolling past flocks of girls at the mall. It doesn't make you feel lonely or friendless, because you just know that you prefer doing these kinds of things alone.

4. You get told that you're mature for your age.

Self-reliance is a rare trait in young children, but you spent your childhood years playing on your own. Not being with others gave you a chance to quietly and peacefully observe, which is why you were the first one in your class to know everyone's name and be able to get a good idea of what they liked and what kind of person they were. You grew up and got a chance to sharpen and refine your skills, and now you can read people like a book.

5. You had a little bit of trouble making friends.

You might've been that kid in the corner who didn't want to talk to anyone, but more likely you had trouble cultivating friendships because it requires you to put a certain amount of trust into another person that you've already invested into yourself.

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. "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!"

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.
