5 Things Every Homeschooler Knows To Be True
Daily Signal

I've decided to take a break from my more "serious" articles to do a piece on homeschoolers. Being one myself, I understand the difficulties and awesomeness of being homeschooled in America. So here are five things that every homeschooler knows to be true...

5. Getting all your school work done so you could watch yet another "Veggie Tales" episode.

This is definitely true for Christian homeschoolers.It was just a given that you would watch a daily "Veggie Tales" after school. I mean, you can never sing along to "The Hairbrush Songs" too many times. And the chocolate bunny? Classic! Those human-like vegetables were like family!

4. Realizing you have a supermom who balances her jobs of mothering and teaching.

Your mom goes from teaching shapes to your little sister to teaching you algebra. Then, on top of that, she takes care of your needs like a great mother. After that, she grades your school work, prepares for tomorrow and wakes up to do it all over again. Wonder Women has nothing on homeschooling mothers!

3. All your best friends are from your local homeschool co-op.

Seriously, you meet the best and worst people through homeschool groups! Life-long friendships were grown there! I like to say that homeschoolers of the world have to unite. You know the old saying, "Birds of a feather flock together." That goes double for homeschool kids.

2. Waking up early to get school done by lunchtime.

Put the pedal to the metal and it really is possible to get Math, Latin, English and everything else down in time to sit down for a grilled cheese! But then, of course, there's the fact that you have to wake up long before the sun rises.

1. Doing school in your pajamas is the most awesome thing about school mornings!

My mom gave me an incentive for waking up at 6 am and getting good grades: doing school in PJs! Remember what I said about waking up before dawn to get school done early? This is what makes those crammed mornings more bearable.

Being a homeschooler can be the greatest time in life (or the worst, depending on which day you asked me...)! I am very thankful I had the chance to be educated at home. Now a freshman in college, I look back on my life as a homeschooler and I realize that my teacher loved me more than anyone else. Because of that, she was even more motivated to see me exceed not just in schoolwork, but also in life.

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. "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. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
