9 Reasons Why Kindergartners And College Kids Aren't That Much Different

Sometimes we cry for no reason at all and want our mommy.

1. We need regular naps to function.

For college kids, it might be in between classes, before chapter, or before a long night in the library. For kindergartners, naps are needed during and after school. But regardless of when, where, or age, college kids and kindergartners share a need for sleep.

2. Oh, and snacks, too.

Kindergartners and college kids alike commonly use the phrase, "You got any snacks?" Because let's face it, snacks are important.

3. Sometimes we cry for no reason at all.

College kids and little kids just need a good cry every once in a while, even if it is for no reason. It's kind of like a detox when college kids have a lot of stress, and kindergartners have a lot of emotions that they need to get rid of.

4. Sometimes all we want is our mom.

When my mom dropped me off at my first day of kindergarten I cried my eyes out because I didn't want her to leave me. When she dropped me off at college, I might've celebrated more than I should have. But regardless, even as a college student, sometimes I just needed my mommy.

5. Or food.

6. Or we just need another nap.

Naps in a bed, naps on a couch, rainy day naps, naps in the middle of the day, naps during school, group naps, car ride naps. NAPS ARE IMPORTANT. I believe everyone should get two naps at least once a day.

7. We have no money.

Money just isn't a thing when you're a little kid or a college student. So, really, your options are begging your parents for money or waiting until Christmas or your birthday rolls around so people will give you money. Or, you know, a lemonade stand.

8. We beg our parents for the things we want.

Whether it is candy at the grocery store, or in a college kid's case, just groceries in general, kindergartners and college kids are constantly begging for more money.

9. We just want to be with our friends.

Kindergartners might play with their friends on the playground, and college kids are the exact same way, except our playground is bars and fraternity parties. But whatever kind of playground, it's always more fun when you have your squad with you.

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.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
