Dear Grandma, I'll Miss You And You'll Always Be In My Heart

Thank you for everything.

Dear Grandma, I'll Miss You And You'll Always Be In My Heart
Haylee Olley

I couldn't sleep that night.

It's hard to explain why I couldn't sleep that night. I had a strange feeling that my life was about change. Not for the better, for the worse.

At 4 a.m., my life changed forever, and I felt apart of me slip away. A part of me changed forever, and my heart was broken by two words spoken by my father.

"She's gone."

I felt my heart stop and tears filled my eyes as I had flashbacks and my heart broke into pieces. I knew this was coming, but I didn't know how soon it would be that I would have to say goodbye.

Hearing my mother cry was the hardest thing I've ever heard while sitting in my college bed in my dorm trying not to cry and wake up my roommate, who, I learned later was awake the whole time.

When I hung up, it hit me all at once like a bolder. My grandmother, one of the strongest people I knew, passed away from cancer. There were many emotions I felt that night: anger, sadness and peace. I was angry, angry at myself that I never went home the weekend before she passed and saw her alive once more.

I felt sadness that she was gone. That I never got to hear her voice or hear her laugh one last time. But I was at peace knowing that she died knowing she was loved and surrounded by the people she adored.

I wanted to take this time to thank my grandmother for everything. We may have fought sometimes, but I am so grateful for you. You've taught me how to drive (with the help of others). When my first boyfriend broke my heart, you got me ice cream. You were at every performance my sisters and I did. And it will be a huge change now that you're no longer here.

I promise to keep pushing myself to become a music educator and I will look after my mom, dad and sisters. I promise to make you proud and I won't give up, I promise. And I will look after your cat and keep your memory alive.

Thank you for everything. I'm glad you're at peace. I will always carry you in my heart and wherever I go. And I know that you will be watching up there with your husband and the rest of the gang.

Rest in peace, Grandma. Thank you for everything.

Till we meet again,

I love you so much

Your grand-daughter

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.
