Hurricane Season Review

We worry about earthquakes where I am from... this is new territory.

Hurricane Season Review

My whole life, I have lived right on the San Andreas Fault in California. It's safe to say that we do worry about an impending natural disaster that is long overdue in the bay area.

But, I have only had to worry about earthquakes my whole life, never gave a second thought to a hurricane.

Here I am, about a month into my first semester at the College of Charleston, writing this article from the place that I have evacuated too because of Hurricane Florence.

An overwhelming experience, to say the least, lots of stress about packing everything that I do not want to leave behind, putting all of my belongings from my dorm from the floor onto my bed in case of flooding. It has been one heck of a week. But also very exciting.

I knew exactly what I was getting into when I decided where I wanted to go to school. I heard the stories about hurricanes, but who would have thought the first one would come this fast?

To be honest, I have found the situation quite exhilarating, a new experience and a story to tell when I go home, or at least one to write for an article!!

So if you are like me, and you have never been in a place where natural disasters as such are very prevalent, do not panic! Take advantage of this new, first-hand experience, but also don't forget to evacuate if you are told too, I am sure the eye of the hurricane is not as quiet as Lin Manuel Miranda described it to be (if you understand my reference then thank you very much).

If you do get school off, make the most of your hurrication. Stay safe my east coast people!

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.
