I Don't Know What My Post College Plans Are

"I just told you what I am and will be studying for the next four years of my life, isn't that enough for you future-plan-pushing adults?"

I Don't Know What My Post College Plans Are
Huffington Post UK

You know what I'm sick of? Every time someone asks me what my major is they follow it with, "So what do you want to do with that after college?"

Why. Is. That. Even. A. Subsequent. Question.

I just told you what I am and will be studying for the next four years of my life, isn't that enough for you future-plan-pushing adults? I am barely out of my teenage years, and was forced to choose my career path at the mere age of 18 when I haven't lived or experienced anything outside of a 2-state range. I decided, with no prior knowledge on the course, what area of work I wanted to spend the rest of my life in. Is that not enough for you?

Just because I've already committed to a work field doesn't mean I've committed to a specific job, so stop giving me the "oh-how-unfortunate-shes-a-typical-clueless-millennial side eye when I simply, yet honestly, reply to your incredibly pushy question, "I have no flipping clue." Because I really, seriously, honestly, just don't.

And if I do tell you a far-fetched, but very real, goal of mine, don't chuckle and say, "Well isn't that ambitious."

Will I actually be President of the United States someday? Or the lead actress of SNL? Will I honestly be the CEO of an influential company? Most likely not, but your demeaning comments are not appreciated. My life goal may sound ridiculous, but chances are I'll find my forever career on the path of trying to achieve it.

I know there are some Millennials that give the rest of us a bad name, however the least you could do is give me the benefit of the doubt. Let's be honest, your generation isn't the juiciest peach on the tree either. Some of your generational peers tend to be racist and homophobic individuals, yet you don't see us Millennials negatively labeling every one of you because of it.

We Millennials still have so much living to do, an infinite number of places to go and people to meet, so forgive us for wanting to have a little more life experience before committing to a lifelong career.

We may be young, we may not have the rest of our lives figured out right now, but that is the beauty of this day and age. We don't have to.

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.
