Goodbye, I'm Going Off To College.

Letters to you all.

Goodbye, I'm Going Off To College.
Tiny Buddha

Dear Mom,

I know you’ve realized this already but I’m leaving. I’m going to college to be something and to make you proud of me. All I’ve ever wanted is to make you proud, to be proud to call me your daughter. To brag about me and have something to brag about. I’m the first one in the family to go and if I’m honest I’m scared out of my wits and I have no idea what I’m doing. It’s going to be the first time I’m away from home for an extended period of time and I can already tell I’m going to suffer from homesickness. I’m dreading move in day because I know you’re going to cry, a lot.

Things are going to be hard, we’re going to go from seeing each other every day to only seeing each other sometimes. It’s going to be hard and I don’t know how I’m going to do it but I’m going to try. I want to be someone you can be proud of and I’m going to miss you. A lot.

Dear Dad,

We don’t always see eye to eye and for a while, we didn’t even talk at all. But in this last year, I’ve realized that you are always going to be my dad and I don’t want to go to college leaving us on bad terms. With everything that’s happened, I don’t want us to be on bad terms and I want you to be in my life. Thank you for helping me when I needed help and thank you for believing in me. You've helped me in so many ways and even though sometimes your relationship with mom is rocky, you didn't let it stop you from helping me when I need it

I love you and I’m going to miss you when I leave.

Dear Ronny,

After all these years, I'll be leaving. Since birth, we've never been away from each other and I'm worried about how you'll handle it. I won't be there to protect you anymore, I won't be there to wipe your tears. For the first time in forever, you'll have to fend for yourself. I only ask that you go easier on mom, she can't handle all the stress. It's going to be a while till we see each other again and in that time I'm going to miss you so much. I love you, Ronny, be good

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.
