To All The Teachers Who Were So Much More

Thank you.

To All The Teachers Who Were So Much More
Anna Hadley

Dear Teacher,

I would like to thank you for believing in me. For seeing something in me from the very beginning. For not giving up on me when I didn't quite understand what seemed to click right away for almost everyone else. I know there were times when I didn't try as hard as I should have, and times where I was really struggling and on the verge of giving up. You saw my potential and helped me get through it. You believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself.

When I felt lost, you answered my questions and made sure I understood what was happening, even if it meant having to come in earlier or stay later than you usually would. I am so grateful for how much you cared about seeing me succeed.

I know that your job is not the easiest, and at times, it's probably pretty exhausting. You have all these lesson plans, assignments and tests to create, along with having to grade everything. And when parents see that their children didn't do well, they get upset and blame you for the study habits and failing grades of their kids. I applaud you for keeping your cool and always being kind and respectful, even in situations like those.

There may be some days where you don't feel like you are doing a good job, or that you aren't reaching your students completely. I understand that. It's a lot of pressure. However, I would like to assure you that you are doing a fantastic job. Keep doing what you're doing.

I dreaded going to most of my classes, but I was excited to go to yours, even if I didn't enjoy being around my classmates. I knew that going to your class would make me smile, not want to crawl into a hole and hide or scream at the top of my lungs.

You taught me so much more than just what I needed to know to just scrape by. You taught me important lessons, like that it takes hard work, perseverance, and a good sense of humor to make it through this life. I've also learned that you don't always need to have all of the answers to be successful.

College is hard. You warned me that it would be. You also told me that it will be a time of self-discovery and adventure, and you were so right. Thank you for not making me fear the future, but making me excited about it.

Thank you for believing in me when it seemed like things were falling apart. Thank you for being a friend and a mentor. Thank you for being the best at what you do. Thank you for being an inspiration. You have made a huge impact on more lives than you could ever realize and I could not be more grateful to have the opportunity to be one of them. I aspire to be like you one day.

With love,

A student who didn't say thank you 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.
