5 Things To Do When Bored in Class

Bobby reminds me of a spork.

5 Things To Do When Bored in Class

We all have those one or two classes that no matter what we do, we simply cannot seem to keep our eyes open. Maybe it's the professors voice that is dragging you into a state of complete blankness. Maybe you just really hate the subject and would rather throw yourself down the stairs instead of sitting there. We've all been there. Here are some things to do when you are losing your mind in class and need to stay awake.

1. Count the lights in the class

This sounds like the stupidest thing ever, but I swear you will be somewhat more entertained and the professor will just think you are thinking about a question very hard.

2. Make a tally of how many times a word is used

This will either keep you listening, or make you realize how annoying it is that a certain word was being said 38 times in the past 20 minutes.

3. Think of what each person in the class would be as a animal/food/utensil

Also sounds like a strange thing to do, but trust me it's a good way to make the class move faster. Once you realize that Dylan in the front row reminds you of a butterknife, you'll never look at him the same again.

4. Make a new playlist

You'll look like you are taking notes, but in reality you are creating a fire playlist. Don't actually take out your phone, this defeats the whole purpose.

5. Rename everyone in the class

Erica is now Debbie, Syd is now Fiona, David is now Lip... oh wait these are just the Shameless characters.

We're all just looking forward to the nap we are going to take after a dreadful class. Maybe these ways can help you stay awake in class and try not to check what time it is every 4 minutes.

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.

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.
