6 Must-Do's In Orlando, Florida

It's been almost two weeks since I moved to Orlando and there are several things that I have discovered are a must. Whether it is spending tons of money at a park or just going out for a sub, Orlando has a lot of opportunities.

1. Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World. The most magical place on earth. Whether you go to one of the four parks, the two water parks, or one of the 33 resorts, there is something to do for the whole family. The best part about the resorts is, that you don't even need park tickets to visit. So if your in the area for a brief visit, or if you live here, just stop by one of the resorts for a quick meal or to do some shopping.

2. Universal

Harry Potter fan? If so, this is the place to be. Universal now has a Harry Potter World where you could actually visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You can also drink Butterbeer as you walk along Diagon Alley and pretending you are a wizard. Don't like Harry Potter? That's okay too, because Universal also has staples such as the Hulk, the Transformers and the Minions.

3. WaWa

Most people don't know what WaWa is, unless you're from the North or Florida. If you don't know what it is, it is a gas station that sells food. Not just your usual bag of chips and soda, but full lunch and dinner items such as flatbreads, salads and subs. My favorite dish is the macaroni and cheese with chicken tenders on top. It doesn't matter what you get at Wawa, it's an amazing experience, especially when it's topped with a milkshake.

4. Sea World

Despite whatever the news tells you, SeaWorld is a wonderful place to go. Its a chance to see live animals you wouldn't normally see doing things they wouldn't normally do. Its fun for the whole family, and in case you didn't know, SeaWorld now has the biggest roller coaster in Orlando.

5. Pub Subs

If you aren't from the south then you probably don't know what Publix is to begin with. It is a grocery store that is above all grocery stores. Not only do they sell your every day grocery needs, but they also sell the infamous, "Pub Subs." Publix serves these subs in a full sub or a half, and there are endless combinations that you could get. Whether it is a buffalo chicken sub or just a ham and cheese, there is no wrong answer.

6. Ale House

I love a good local bar, and Ale House is no exception. They are spread throughout Florida, but the one in Orlando will always have a special place in my heart. Not only does this bar have a great food and appetizer selection, including loaded french fries topped with chicken nuggets, but their drink prices are what appeal to me. If you want $10 pitcher of margaritas or $10 pitchers of sangria, this is the place to go. You could also get most cocktail drinks and beers for under $5. Ale house also airs most major sporting events on their multiple television screens, but I would get there early, because the place gets packed.

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