To My Future Daughter

I want you to know...

You are so loved. Out of everything I've ever done or will do you are my greatest accomplishment. I hope you grow up to be capable and independent, set on your beliefs with a strong sense of self. But above all I hope you are kind, the type of kind that touches peoples' hearts and that you leave the world better than you found it. I don't know what the next 10+ years will hold for me or the world as a whole, but with you in it I know it will be changed for the better.

I want so many things for you it's hard to narrow down the most important, but here are a few that have gotten me through life so far.

A best friend 

This person will be there for you on your darkest days and finest moments. They'll take your victories as their own and vice versa. They know you better than yourself and love you like family. It may take a couple of trial and error friendships but you'll find your best friend and they'll be irreplaceable.

A first love 

This person will change for your life the better. You’ll most likely not stay with them, but they will leave an imprint on your heart forever. They’ll teach you new things about yourself, and make you reevaluate what you want and who you are.

A mother 

I guess that's me. As your mother I'll love you unconditionally and without fault. I know there will be days where you feel like the whole world is against you, but remember I'll always be on your team and your biggest advocate.

A mentor 

Whether it be your sibling, teacher, cousin, aunt etc. This person will change your life forever and make you see the world in a whole different light. They'll challenge you in ways you'd never experienced and light a fire in your heart that will burn the rest of your life.

Fear 

If you never experience fear then you never will truly live. Life is scary, but what's scarier is the possibility to remain complacent where you are and settle for a mediocre existence. I want you to dream so big it frightens and excites you. I want you to share your passions with the world and have them doubt you, only to prove them wrong.

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.

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:

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.

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?
