An Open Letter To My Bank Account

I'm sorry I don't check up on you more, it's just that I'm scared.

An Open Letter To My Bank Account

Dear Bank Account,

We've been through so much together. The highs, the lows and the overdraws. You've been my best friend and my worst enemy. You've been a source of pride and a topic of shame. I'd have nothing without you (literally), and I'm so glad that my parents' co-signature on you brought us together.

I first would like to say that I'm sorry. We both know I don't treat you right sometimes. Did I need that dress I ordered last week? No, probably not. And I know that it seriously hurt you when I went and ordered it anyway, without even checking to see if you were in good shape. You weren't. You were on the brink of death, somewhere in the $30-40 ballpark range. I never meant to hurt you. It was selfish, and you deserve someone more caring and fiscally responsible. I swear that I'll work on being better, just give me time and promise to stay not that empty for now.

I'm sorry that I don't check you as often as I should. Honestly, it scares me. Who knows if you'll be in the hundreds, in the tens or, dare I say it, in the low single digits. I'm sorry for ignoring you when I know that you're not doing too well, but hey, ignorance is bliss, right?

Thank you for always holding it down and letting me do fun things that I enjoy. Without you, I couldn't buy coffee or go bowling or go out to dinner. I would live a sad life, because Chipotle costs money, and without you I have none. I am so thankful that you let me make it rain every now and again. You and payday always know how to turn my frown upside-down.

I'm trying to create a better future for us, babe. I'm out here applying for internships, trying to get a job with some semblance of a post-recession salary, so that I can make you full and strong. One day, we'll look back on the days that my card got declined at Taco Bell at 3:45 a.m. on a $3.59 purchase, because you know what? We shall overcome. One day, we may be able to finance a shared two bedroom apartment in a cheap yet trendy area of Brooklyn, and the world shall be ours. So I know times are tough, and that I may eat mostly ramen and cereal, but one day we can go to an Applebee's, and together we can get the expensive salad, and maybe even a diet coke. I believe in us. I really do.


Your very broke college student owner who hopefully gets paid this Friday

P.S. I'm sorry I lie to my mom when she asks how you are

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.
