8 Reasons I Love My Parents

I consider myself very lucky to have my parents in my life. Without them, I don't know where I'd be. Here's a few reasons I love them so much.

1.) They're my comic relief

My parents are really funny people, both together and on their own. They can make me laugh, no matter what the situation may be. They are very funny people and I don't think I've gone a minute without laughing since I've been home for break, and it's all because of my parents.

2.) They've supported all my various dreams

From cosmetology to culinary to social work, my parents have always been my number one supporters. They went on every college tour with me, went to every dance recital, everything that happened the week of graduation. Anything that I was involved in, big or small, my parents were there.

3.) They've shown me what true love is

Watching my parents as I've grown up, I've gotten to witness what true love really is. It made me realize that I don't know anything about love, but my parents sure do. Whether my dad wants to talk about it or not, he's given me advice from time to time, though it's my mom who is the sole advice giver.

4.) They care about us more than they care about themselves

Every single time I've been sick, my parents would text me every hour to see what my temperature was, what medicine I've taken, etc. My parents have rushed up to USM to bring me a laptop charger because mine stopped working. My parents care about us so much that they drop everything to make sure we're all set.

5.) They make every vacation memorable

Every other year since I was eight months old, my parents have taken us to Disney and every time it was memorable. Even the little trips to visit family in North Carolina were memorable, because we were a family. We were away from the stresses of everyday life and we were able to relax together.

6.) They're the best cat grandparents

I'm so thankful that Sven gets to live with my parents while I'm at school because that means I know he's safe and happy. They treat him like he's their cat (and it gets really awkward when they say they're taking him), but I'm still really glad that such great people are taking care of my little kitty baby.

7.) They're the reason I have a job

..and why I go to work while I'm home. Once I turned 16, my dad made me go get a job and though I typically don't want to go, I'm glad they forced me to get a job and start making my own money.

8.) They love me unconditionally

Like my sister, except more. My parents have always told me from the day I was born how much they love me. There aren't enough words to even begin to explain how grateful I am to have my parents, because they're my rock. Together they give me the motivation to get through every day and every hard time I'm having. Thank you so much, mum and dad, I love you so much.

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.
