A li'l June update

Dear Diary

Dear Diary,

The summer is going pretty well. You’d be so proud of me -- I haven’t spent any money since I started working. My idea for the rest of the summer is that I’ll use my babysitting money as my spending money, just keep the cash in my wallet, and then save all the money from work that gets direct deposited into my bank account. All I know is that I’m going to need some moolah to back me up when my roommate from last year and I want to get food from that calzone place near school (I’m smiling just as I think of the goodness). Also, I need gas and insurance money -- just because my mom bought me my car doesn’t mean she’s going to pay for the rest, dammit.

I’ve been at my summer job for two and a half weeks, and it’s going OK. Being the new kid (again) always makes the beginning a li'l lonely, but I know I’ll get there -- I mean one of my favorite things is making new friends (that reminds me -- gotta stock up on my lunch dates, I’ve been slacking, although my new cheap mindset makes spending money on food hard).

This morning I made chocolate chip and banana chocolate chip pancakes -- again. I will never stop loving these pancakes. And they’re best when they’re made at home, either by my mom or myself, must be something in our water or the chocolate chips we use that makes it unique to everywhere else.

Despite my weekend cravings, I’ve been getting up at 6 a.m. almost every weekday morning to work out before heading to work. And starting next week I’m going to have to push that an hour earlier because work is starting earlier. And not gonna lie to you; my legs are getting pretty strong.

I’m trying to plan trips to see all my friends from school, but it’s not going so well. I swear I’m not being lazy, but driving longer than 90 minutes is not my forte. Especially with my mom continuously yelling at me about insisting that my beautiful Lucy (my, ahem, car) will break down. My ’06 bug is strong and long-lasting, thank you very much.

Anyway, I might not be writing a lot to you, I’ve never done very well with consistent diary writing. But I’ll talk to you soon enough!

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.

Kinder Self - Eyes

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.
