Bad Things Come In Threes

We've all heard the saying that bad things come in threes. Let me tell you something. That couldn't be anymore true. I have a few different examples of bad things happening in threes so if you don't like to read about bad things or death you might want to stop reading now. This article by no means is going to be happy and upbeat like others that I have written.

Last week I was scrolling through Facebook like it was any other week and I came across a post from one of my high school teachers. A male my age had passed away. This male was the end of one set of three and simultaneously the start of another set of three. You see I have been graduated from high school for three years and four months and this post was the third since graduation of males around my age having passed away from my hometown.

This death however had hit me a little harder than the other two of the set of three that he ended had. He lived down the road from me for years we went to school together and we grew up together. He was the one that I went home for.

Remember how I said he was also the start of another set of three? Later in the week I was scrolling through Facebook again and I came across two more people who had posted about loved ones passing away. These didn't affect me though because while I knew the people who posted that they had lost someone I did not know the people who had passed.

Bad things come in threes so you may start to feel better about someone passing away but soon after your grieving process starts all over again because unless that was your third one you are going to have more coming.

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.

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.
