How you can make going back to school a bit easier.

10 Ways That Will Make Going Back To School Easier

No one likes the end of summer. Sure, it's exciting to think about seeing all of your friends again, and maybe you have one or two classes that actually seem promising, but the start of school often comes with a lot of anxiety and little sleep. So, before this year kicks off, here are a few tips to make getting back to school just a little bit better.

1. Start going to bed at a reasonable time a few days before the first day. And no, 3 AM is not reasonable.

2. Prepare snacks! Bringing healthy and enjoyable snacks could brighten up even the roughest of days. I personally love my mason jar because it never leaks and you can get really creative with what you bring.

3. Get a planner or calendar. I love my Lilly Pulitzer because the design on the cover makes me feel like I'm on a tropical beach instead of in a 50 year old desk. Find one that's appealing on the outside since we all know that what's inside isn't appealing in the least.

4. Look for those back to school sales! On the days when you're ready to throw your alarm against a wall, you'll at least be happy to show off a new outfit.

5. Clean up the junk that you've had stuffed into a corner since Christmas. Having a clear space will help you stay organized and not get overwhelmed once those textbooks start taking over you room.

6. Talk to your friends and see what times you'll be able to meet with them at school. These little breaks will give you something to look forward to throughout the day.

7. Pamper yourself! Get that new haircut, take an extra long bath and go for that back to school mani and pedi. You deserve it!

8. Stock up on aroma therapy creams or candles. The stress relief cream from Bath and Body Works will help calm you down when you're up all night. Candles also help by creating a nice ambience and filling your study space with smells like chocolate layer cake and vanilla cupcake.

9. Make sure you have a pocket- sized hand sanitizer. The last thing you need is to get sick!

10. Take a deep breath and remind yourself that you are smart and capable of doing well this year.

Your mental health is more important than your transcript, so always be aware of how you're feeling and try to begin the semester with a positive mindset. State your goals for the year and promise yourself that you will make them happen!

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.
