Dear Childhood Best Friend, I Don't Regret Anything

You were there for many of my firsts.

Dear Childhood Best Friend, I Don't Regret Anything

Dear childhood best friend,

We've been through a lot since we were little- since the days we ran around the neighborhood wearing superman capes and made multiple pledges to save the world. The first days of kindergarten were supposed to be absolutely unbearable, but you were there when I needed a partner. You were there for many of my firsts.

My first days of elementary school, my first time riding a bicycle, and you were the reason for my first grounding because of something stupid we did.

I remember the holidays you spent with our family, and the ones I spent with yours. I remember the campfires with our conjoined family and the late summer nights hunting fireflies and our dreams.

But as the day bore on and we got taller and older, and for some strange reason, as the years flew by, it seemed that you were eager for more. I chose to ignore the signs because I believed it was just a part of getting older.

But then the bomb dropped, and you moved to the next school district over and left me hanging.

You found new friends, and as that summer dragged on, I was slowly being forgotten. But as the months wore on I too found my own new friends that I made memories with.

And as you read this, I promise you I don't blame you. Things happen, like me moving away as well and communication becoming desolate and the fact we weren't little kids anymore. But I want to thank you for my childhood memories, which you were in many of them.

I remember the days of superman and making mud pies and they are the best. I hope with your new friends you can make even better memories, ones you can look back on someday and feel nostalgic about that time of your life. But I hope you don't forget our memories too.

Thank you for my childhood, friend, good luck.

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.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.
