7 Reasons College Students Cannot Wait For Thanksgiving Break

Every college kid knows this is that time of the year when all we want to do is cuddle in our beds, watching Netflix, and procrastinating every assignment given to us. It is the time of mid-terms, papers, literature review, everything hitting you all at once.

1. We didn't get a fall break

If your school is anything like mine, West Chester University, we did not have the pleasure of a fall break this year. Instead, we are getting a week for Thanksgiving break. The talk around campus is mixed opinions about this because let's be real, fall break is just the time to give yourself a break before mid-terms start, but those of here did not have that fun.

2. You get to sleep in your own bed

All the mattress pads in the world could not make anything comparable to your bed at home. The one you slept in for most of your life because coming to the thin-mattress world of college. There is just something so much better about your bed at home, maybe it does not have the "bad juju" of stress, making sleep much easier.

3. Spending quality time with your family

Family may be a call away, but nothing can compare to being in the same room as them. Smiling, laughing, enjoying the time. Family is forever.

4. Seeing all of your friends from home

There can be pros and cons to this reasoning. If you are like me and had that one core group of friends that you hang out with all the time, but now no longer talk to or hardly say "hi" to when you see them at home, then it can be a con. There is also the pro that you finally get to see the true friends that you have only been able to call or text the past three months, but even that is hard with busy college schedules.

5. A break from all of the stress

Do I even need to explain myself with this one?

6. The end of the semester is in sight

Thanksgiving break is such a motivation to know that the end of the semester is coming near, the time you can actually relax for a month before getting back to the grind of it all.

7. Last, but surely not least: Thanksgiving dinner

Cheez-Its, Gatorade, frozen meals, we have all been basically living off of that for the past three months. Let's face it, we all like to say that we eat healthily, but they don't call us broke college kids for nothing. There is nothing better than going home knowing that big turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, gravy, all of it is going to be served on your break at home. Heck, maybe your mom throws in more home cooked meals for you!

We are in the last stretch people! It may be a drag coming back from Thanksgiving break knowing that stress will once hit you again for about 2-3 more weeks, but soon all of that hard work will pay off and we can all enjoy a nice break.

Take the time with your family and friends to drop all of your worries and give yourself a little fun!

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.
