5 Things That You Absolutely Need When Heading Back To College
Photo submitted by Anna Powers

I am heading back to 'Cuse in just a short two months and are a few things that I will be bringing with me, and I think everyone should bring them too.

1. Three or four comfy pairs of leggings 

I 100% promise you that even though you might want to dress cute the first weeks of classes, shortly after that all that you will want to wear is leggings. Having several good pairs will easy outfits in the morning.

2. Reusable Water Bottle/Coffee Cup/Straw

While you are on campus you are going to want a reusable water bottle(s) and straw(s), so you are not constantly buying plastic water bottles and straws. It really is not cool to do that. :/ And just a pro-tip: If you use a reusable coffee cup at Starbucks you get a discount! SAVE THE TURTLES!

3. Five Subject Notebook

I figured out after the first semester that you do not need a notebook for every class, so what I did the second semester was get a five subject notebook that way each of my classes just had a section and it was so easy to carry around, and I didn't have to waste any paper.

4. Frat Shoes

I know that this is probably a given, but I think that contrary to popular belief, sometimes you should have more than one type of frat shoes. Yes, of course, white sneakers are always the way to go, but, in my opinion, I think you should also have an extra pair of booties dedicated to the frats. After all, sometimes those booties are the perfect way to finish off an outfit.

5. An open mind and positive attitude

I know that this is super cliché but remember that when you go back to school sometimes things are going to get extremely hard because life is hard. Just remember that everyone has their own struggles and challenges, but it really all works out in the end.

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.

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!"

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.
