Is Our Time Really Limited?

The closing walls and the ticking clocks, gonna come back and take you home

Is Our Time Really Limited?

I've been going to classes all day and unfortunately it is raining. I don't mind the rain, but I do

mind it when I have to walk across campus and my shoes are completely soaked. Anyways, I'm

not here to rant about school or the rain or even rant in general. I have been thinking a lot

recently, about school and the future. I've also been thinking about this time crunch some

people seem to be on. There is a certain age you're expected to finish school at and even a

certain age to be married, well I mean in brown culture especially. It got me thinking, do we as

people sometimes happen to limit how much time we have to do certain things?

I know life is short and of course our time here on earth is limited because not to be negative or

anything, but it is expected that everyone will die. Whether this be a sudden death driving back

from the movies or a disease like cancer that was dragged out for years and eventually, cancer


We go to school our whole lives, most of us who have the means to go. We surround ourselves

with friends and family, we deal with problematic ass people, we hear about victims of rape

through the news, we even get to witness the era of new idiotic president!

Honestly speaking, life is constantly moving, but are we moving with it or just trying to keep

up as best we can? Do we feel the need to race against life, somehow get ahead and beat it?

Are we as a society ready to accept flaws in life?

See, the funny thing is I always ask these questions, but even I have no clue.

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.
