Covid-19 gave me a new perspective on life.

Covid-19 has not only encouraged me to wash my hands, but it has also encouraged me to think differently about my life.

Covid-19 gave me a new perspective on life.

Dear readers, I know you are not at work and you have more alone time. This means you have most likely been thinking a lot. It has come to a point where surface level conversations have been escalating quickly. Since you aren't busy taking your kids to school, walking to classes, going to sports practice or going to your 9-5 job, you actually time to pay attention to what is happening outside your little personalized bubble. Here are some topics that can heavily impact people that most people don't regularly think about.

1. How do you feel about how the current president is handling the Coronavirus? Is this going to impact your vote? What defines a great leader to be running the nation in your opinion?

2. Since there is not much to do now, people are spending more time in nature. If climate change escalates and people don't change their behaviors are you going to miss walking on a clean beach and breathing in clean air?

3. If you ever shammed someone for being a house cleaner, a fast food worker or a delivery service you must feel sorry now. These professions don't get enough credit for keeping people healthy and being able to feed tons of people for reasonable prices.

4. If we didn't have media or any type of journalism, it would be much harder to be informed and get updates on this pandemic.

5. Family will be there for you until you die and when you die.

6. Technology is amazing. Imagine being quarantined with no phone, no internet or any type of technology. The fact we can stay in contact with people who are not physically here makes life much easier.

7. Shelves being empty makes it even more challenging for families dependent on food stamps.

8. Giving your pets love is so important. Make sure to give your cat play time and take your dog out for a lengthy walk.

9. Cooking isn't time consuming or difficult, it's your attitude that decides if it's easy or hard. There are so many easy recipes out there with minimal ingredients.

10. Be grateful for all of the activities and people you were able to see before this virus outbreak.

Unfortunately this outbreak has led to people losing their jobs, causing economic failure. This time is difficult for everyone. The only thing you can do is count your blessings and cherish every minute you have with your friends and family. Following rules from the CDC are vital at this time to save the lives of loved ones. Treat strangers like your family because they are members of another family that loves them. Stay clean and keep your germs to yourself by not engaging in large group activities and exposing yourself to new people. If you want to get back to work, your favorite nightclub, a distant family member or school, then maybe it's time to stay inside for the greater good.

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.
