How to Properly Watch a Good Movie

Movie theaters are out. Movies in bed are in.

1. Pick a good movie. Please. It's the least you can do for yourself.

2. For approximately 2 hours, you will now be emotionally invested in something other than the looming cloud of finals or the political climate of your country. Hide your phone. Embrace these 2 hours. You now exist only in the universe of the movie.

3. For the duration of the movie it is mandatory you have snacks, and all lack of self-control will be forgiven because, well, it's a movie. The options are unlimited. Popcorn is always a good option. Chocolate is very important. There is nothing better than detaching yourself from reality with snacks.

4. Your house, your rules. Look at all this freedom you have by watching a movie from the comfort of your own home. Sit in any chair you want. Get a ridiculous amount of blankets.

5. Turn off all the lights. This needs to be an immersive experience. Use speakers if you have them. Who doesn't love surround sound?

6. Unleash your rage on the characters. Be assertive. Are they doing something stupid? Tell them. Have no remorse.

7. When the movie is done, ponder it. Why did it end that way? Why did the character do that? What would you have done?

8. Finally, take a walk outside to unleash the movie's true power. Feel like a new person as you emerge from your dark movie cave. This is so much better than the movie theater feeling. And it was free.

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.
