Who Cares What Other People Your Age Are Doing

Quit trying to rush life from what you see around you.

Who Cares What Other People Your Age Are Doing

Oh, some of your best friends are happily engaged and are the same age as you? Good for them, your time will come.

Most of the people you graduated high school with have already graduated college and now have grown up jobs? That's awesome, some people just prefer to go at their own pace.

Regardless of what everyone is doing around you, do not focus on that or compare your life to theirs.

I am speaking on this topic because I have been one to compare where I am at in life to others around me.

It is almost as if I am running out of time.

It is funny because I am only 20 years old. However, in reality, I feel like the new 20 is the new 30.

Lately, there have been so many people my age getting married, moving in with their significant others, or getting pregnant.

Obviously, I could not imagine doing/having either of those things right now, but I feel like I should be at that point in my life.

By all means, I am happy for those who have found the love of their life and are ready settle down and start a family of their own. It was their time for that, and I can promise that our time will come too; When we are ready and the time is right.

However, I know that there is no rush because I literally have my whole life ahead of me and so do you.

Whether or not you say that you are "getting old", I can promise there are still big plans to come for your life regardless of what you think.

You have the rest of your life ahead of you and so many amazing things are going happen throughout the years.

So enjoy the moments of your life right now and quit trying to rush to plan the rest of your life because you feel like you have to.

Be happy for those around you. Also, be patient and excited knowing that your time will come!

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.
