A Quote to Live By

" I want you, don't worry about who wants me."

A Quote to Live By

By Zaina Starr

A quote I try to live by and like to share with the ones who are special to me. The ones I share my life with. This is how I make the ones I care about feel special. They are the special ones in my life and they need to be treated as such. These people are the ones I hold close, like my significant other and my kids. That is family.

Everyone wants what they don't have because if they had it, it would not be a want anymore. If they already have it or have had it, then they desire to keep it because they have developed a love for it. This is how I see relationships with the people around you that does not consist of your kids.

Kids are born into our lives and have the position of being first priority in our lives. Others see this and can become jealous. As well as kids seeing parents develop relationships that are a companionship, the kids can become jealous. Everyone wants to be the first priority in someone's life that they care about. It's only human nature.

Every person in our lives we have a different, not better, relationship with. Looking in from an outside point of view, people see someone taking their spot or getting more attention than they are. That is wrong. People are given the attention that is needed when they need it. Not when they want it. There is a difference.

Instead of feeling left out or lacking the attention they desire, people should learn to communicate with their loved ones more. Tell people how they feel, and together come to a resolution to make things better between them, not retaliate against one another. That causes more problems and more chaos.

In conclusion, if someone wants you, then don't worry about who wants them. People always want what they do not have or they want what everyone else wants, what's popular. Kids are always wanted, never forgotten. Parents have to take care of themselves before they can take care of their kids. The kids learn to believe from negative influences, that they are not wanted. No one should ever tell a child they are not wanted. Kids are first, always. Parents want better lives for their kids and sometimes a parent is forced to separate from the kids to do that. Kids will learn how much children mean to the parent when they too become a parent as the struggles of life become real.

"If I want you, then don't worry about who wants me."

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.
