Since graduation season is upon us here is a list of people you may meet at various graduation parties so you cannot say I did not warn you! This probably will not come close to all the possibilities of people you may meet, but at least you can be more prepared! None of these are quite that bad! But if you realize that you are one of these and find that it is not something you are proud of maybe try to change your ways the next party you are at. So as graduation party season begins, have a great time, hug your friends, and have an amazing future!

1. The Olympic Yard Game Athlete.

The person that is good at all of the yard games! They crush you at every single one! This includes, Kan Jam, Corn Hole, volleyball, horseshoes, ALL OF THE YARD GAMES! There may be more than one especially since most of these involve more than one person there is probably a team who are these olympians. If corn hole was an olympic sport you wouldn't be surprised if these were the people winning the gold!


2. The Force Feeder.

The person that makes sure your plate is never empty to make sure your stomach is about to pop! They probably made most of the food so they want you to enjoy it most but this comes to a point! Take the amount you know you can handle and if you are unsure about a food at least try it since they probably will be hurt.

3. The 'Party Hardy' type.

The person that probably did not need one more beer. They love a good time and are not going to miss the opportunity to turn up! If there is music you better believe they will try to get you out there dancing! If you come to my graduation party there will be many many of these people!

4. The Crazy Family Member.

Good chance they were invited with hopes they may not show up! But if they are there you may get trapped in a never ending conversation! Best thing to do it keep a positive mind about the conversation, try your best to keep a happy face and hopefully you can find an out. If they catch you at the food table go and eat your food as a way to get out of it or go and get food!

5. The DJ.

Not the actual DJ this is a friend or family member that was not hired they just think their music is the best! If there is a hired DJ they will continue to request songs they think are a good time, if there is not a hired DJ you will now have your aux cord stolen. I pray their music is actually good for your sake but if not maybe you take a turn DJ-ing.

6. The Storyteller.

The one with all the stories. It is rather impressive that one person can know and experience so many exciting things. Usually can be a good thing or a bad thing. May allow for some good entertainment but if their stories are to make sure the attention remains on them there is a good chance that these stories will no longer be fun to listen to.

7. The Puppy Guarder.

I do play this role often. The person that does not know anyone else at the party so the person they know is the person they stick to. Sadly this is often the person the party is for and usually they know everyone at the party! So it is hard to stick to them. One if you are the puppy guarder try to spread your wings and start a conversation with someone, and if you notice a puppy guarder try to reach out to them and start a conversation!

Acts 1:8 Ministry Explains How To Teach Your Child To Be Charitable And Compassionate

There have been many natural disasters that have wreaked havoc in the United States and around the world such as tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. Over the last few decades, the generosity of Americans has become well-known, and it's vital to inspire this charitable and compassionate concern for others down to future generations.

Acts 1:8 Ministry has helped enrich the lives of others around the globe through the support of generous donors and volunteers who want to help spread kindness, strengthen their faith, grow the Christian church, and improve communities. To pay it forward, Acts 1:8 Ministry explains below how parents can instill charitable and compassionate qualities in their children through word, action and leading by example.

Start At Home

If you have more than one child, you know there are those times they don't want to share toys, snacks, or even friends. Teaching siblings to share is less complicated when you teach your children why the love for each other is so important. In a family unit, each member depends on all the others. Parents provide shelter, food, clothing, and different needs. Children contribute by helping with chores, obeying house rules, and doing their homework. Mutual love and respect are what strengthens the family unit. Working and giving together teaches invaluable lessons to children and builds a secure family unit.

Working Together For Others

Donating time at a food pantry, shelter, or meal distribution center for low-income families or homeless folks in your local area teaches your children the importance of caring for those who are less fortunate. Explain why it is wrong to judge people who need free services to survive. Your children may encounter people who are dirty and wearing smelly clothes, and they need to know not to say anything that would hurt their feelings or embarrass them.

Giving Together For Others

If your state has a beverage deposit on soda, juice, and alcoholic beverages, you and your children can collect discarded cans and bottles. The money you receive from their redemption can be donated to a variety of charitable causes including animal shelters, food banks, clothing distribution centers, or a local charity you support. There is always a need for cash at all of these facilities. Plan annual family fundraisers, such as yard, craft, bake, and plant sales. Donate the money earned to one or more charitable projects the family chooses together.

Establish Charitable Habits

Establish habits and family routines to encourage charitable acts. Choose things that fit your family's lifestyle. Keep a large "charity" jar and place a dollar amount in it every time the family does something special such as going to the movies, spending a day at a water park, eating out, or taking a vacation. Whenever the family spends money on a fun adventure or outing, setting a little money aside to be used for those who don't have the same opportunities helps children understand the need for caring about other people. Other things you can do as a family include:

• Reduce the amount of clothing in your closets, and donate clean and undamaged items to a charity that distributes clothing to low-income families.

• Clean out the toys. Donate unbroken toys and games to homeless shelters that take in families or to a home for battered women and their children.

• Donate your time to visit a nursing home, and talk to different residents. Encourage your children to ask the older folks to tell stories about their childhood.

• Bake cookies or bread together and distribute to older people that live in your neighborhood. Have your children make a card to give with the food gift.

• Help a neighbor who has been sick with yard work, taking out the trash, or other chores he or she is not able to do.

Children love making others happy and will continue to feel the same way as adults if you help them establish the habits of caring, sympathy, helping, and compassion when they are young. By teaching children the core values of caring and compassion, future generations of Americans will continue to be the world's most generous and compassionate people.

To My Long-Distance Best Friend, We Might Be 7,811 Miles Apart, But Our Friendship Only Gets Stronger

It breaks my heart that I cannot be around for your birthdays or to celebrate your achievements. But I'm so proud of every milestone you achieve. I am so proud of all your accomplishments and the person you are becoming.

To my best friend,

It has been 270 days since I last met you and 206 more days until I meet you again. People say that time flies by quickly, but these have been the most difficult days that seemed to drag on forever. Five years ago when you were sitting next to me on the first day of our sociology class, I had no idea we would end up being best friends. From sharing my mother's parathas during lunch breaks to the countless sleepovers, I will never forget all the memories we created throughout high school.

I vividly remember the day I told you I would be studying abroad. You were so happy and proud of me for pursuing my dreams but also upset that we wouldn't be seeing each other every now and then. I was worried if our friendship would even last. But we have spent almost two years away from each other and our friendship only seems to get stronger.

I'm so grateful to technology for allowing us to be in touch all the time. My day doesn't feel complete if I do not receive a text from you. I know we do not video call often because of how busy our schedules are (another reason being time zones suck and I cannot do the math), but always know that I am there for you. It breaks my heart that I cannot be around for your birthdays or to celebrate your achievements. But I'm so proud of every milestone you achieve. I am so proud of all your accomplishments and the person you are becoming.

We have both had some terrible friendship experiences in our past before we met each other that have completely broken our faith in friendships. But know that you can always count on me and that I will never leave your side. Know that I will always set an alarm early in the morning just to video call you. Know that I will always be there for you (even if I'm not physically present around you). Know that you will always be the first person I share everything with.

I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me. Thank you for encouraging me to make new friends at college. Thank you for always being there during my failures and reminding me that it's not the end of the world and that more opportunities will come my way. Thank you for being there during my successes and being my number one cheerleader. Thank you for always reminding me to love myself. You not only have a special place in my heart but also have a special place in my family. My mother and sister not only glad that I have a best friend like you but also adore you so much. It is impossible to imagine a life without you.

I cannot wait for more butter chicken sleepover dates in December!

Lots of love,

Your best friend.
