Beyond ready to get back to the place that I love most!

1. I get to see my Xisters (Alpha Xi Delta sister right here) 

If you are in a sorority you know that you are going to be dying to see all your sisters that live all over the country—especially since the second semester of Freshman year was epic with them. I cannot wait to return for part 2.

2. You get to see all of your other college friends

I made some lifelong friends in my first semester. Therefore, I can't wait to reunite with them to make even more memories while taking on my sophomore year.

3. Living with the best!!

My roommate and I from freshman year are extremely close. So, we decided this year to live on South Campus in our own little apartment. As August gets closer, we are getting more and more excited to make it feel like home and have some wild times!

4. I can't wait for my classes!

Unlike my freshmen year, this semester I am truly excited about my schedule as I get to vary off my required courses and take classes that really interest me.


Even though Syracuse is a basketball school, I absolutely cannot wait until we are back for football season. From the hype to the spirit to the tailgates, I am so amped!!

6. The freedom of being in college 

Don't get me wrong, I love being home. However, once you come back home after your freshman year in college, you feel like you are moving backward in life. For example, for months while in college I could leave my dorm no questions asked, yet at home, I feel as though I must undergo a police interrogation by my parents whenever I want to leave the house. Subsequently, I'm excited to go back so I can have a little independence back in my life.

7. This place just really makes me a happy person. 

At Syracuse University, everything just makes a little more sense to me. I'm overall just happier; therefore, life is better :)

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. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
