To My Best Friend Studying Abroad This Semester
Casey Leming

Hey pal,

I know you are about to embark on the most amazing trip of your life. Traveling to another country for academics is an amazing feat that not everyone has the opportunity to do. You’re about to experience so many new things; between culture, language, meeting new people and probably the best part, food, you’re going to have a great time; no doubt about it.

While this is all true, I’m going to miss you. You’re a huge part of my life and not having you so close is going to be really hard. Even at different colleges, we still make it a point to talk every day, whether it be through a text, Snapchat, Facebook, Facetime, or literally any other platform you can think of. We’ve always been there for each other. Although I know this trip is going to open so many new doors for you and I’m incredibly excited that you have this opportunity, a part of me is a little sad that you’re leaving.

The time difference is what worries me the most. You’ll probably be waking up soon after I hit the hay, and our schedules will likely never line up. I know you have other people to talk to, like your family or significant other, but I can’t help but feel like we’ll just keep missing each other in communication.

This won’t stop me from trying, though. You are my best friend, and I will do absolutely anything I can to remain in contact with you. Your time abroad is going to be beyond amazing, and I can’t wait to see all the new things you experience. You know I’ll want to see photos as soon as you land, as soon as you settle down and as soon as you get comfortable. If possible, I’m more than willing to write you letters or postcards or send a carrier pigeon, if that’s what I must do.

I am beyond happy and excited for you. I will also miss you more than you can imagine. I know I’ll see you after some time, it’s not like it’s forever, but I will definitely notice your absence. Just know that if you ever need to talk to someone, or if you feel homesick at any time, I will absolutely be available to FaceTime, Skype, Snapchat, or anything else on a Wi-Fi connection at any time.

North America will be sad to see you go, but your country is gaining one ambitious and adventurous young woman. Remember that I’ll always be here for you, even when our time-zones don’t line up and our schedules are the complete opposite. I love you, and I know you’ll make the most of everything. I can’t wait to hear all about it when you come home. Have the best time ever this semester, and I’ll be waiting to give you the biggest hug ever when you return.


Your best friend

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.

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.
