It's official. Joe Biden has won the 2020 election.

Across the United States, Biden supporters (and those who only settled for Biden to vote Donald Trump out of office) are overjoyed. After a long and contentious election, their hard work and hope have paid off. After years of phone banking, petition writing, protesting, and worrying, we have brought an end to the Trump presidency.

Many of us are relieved that some sense of normalcy can be restored.

We'll once again have a president who can utter coherent thoughts. We will have a president who will not aim to divide us, but aims to unite us. We'll have a president who will aim to diversify his cabinet instead of having an absurd number of old white men helping him run the country.

However, "some sense of normalcy" has never been good enough for the majority of the country.

"Some sense of normalcy" is not enough for the 34 million-plus Americans who live in poverty or the young adult who can't afford a college degree. It's not good enough for the mother who can't afford her life-saving medications or for the Black man who fears being killed by police if he takes a turn wrong while driving. The United States needs to undergo radical change, and we need to push the Biden Administration as much as we can in order to improve the most lives possible.

During the past four years, Americans have become more involved in political activism. Many of us have gained new skill sets, new ways to advocate for each other, and new ways to draw attention to our causes.

We have raised our voices, and we shouldn't lower them now. We shouldn't mistake normalcy for excellence.

Now is the time to hold our leaders accountable. It's time to voice our opinions and refuse to back down. It is the time to reject normalcy and demand something better.

Now is the time for change.

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.
