A Letter To My Brother

I want to thank you for not only being the best big brother, but for being the best friend I could ask for

A Letter To My Brother

I have published an article for all of my family members, except my brother. Why? Simply because I have been waiting, and I feel like this is the best time for him to read it.

Dear bubba,

I want to start this off by saying thank you. Thank you for being the best big brother that I could ask for. Growing up we rarely argued, and I always looked up to you. While our sister was always playing with dolls, makeup, and talking to her friends about boys, you were there with your Star Wars, Pokemon, video games, and many other things that I enjoy now. If it hadn’t been for you, I would have not known of these things. So thank you.

I know we are six years apart, so I was never super fun to play with, but you did. When our mom told you to include me with your games, you would pretend to plug the controller in, and let me go at it. I always thought I was winning, and then I learned the truth. You taught me to become better at video games, and although I may never beat you at Battlefront, I will always have fun playing the game with you.

Anytime our sister and I would fight(which was a lot), you were always our mediator. You have had to break up some physical fights, but you always did. It was never fun though when you two would team up against me. Though I wouldn’t change those memories for the world. When anything bad happens to me, you are always the first person to help me feel better. When I feel unsure about something, you listen to my worries. When something exciting is happening, you listen to me babble. And when I am really angry, you listen to me rant. You truly are a great big brother, but most importantly, you are a great friend. When you lived here you were always the first person I would ask to hang out with.

It is really hard not having you in the same city. Whenever I want to go somewhere I always pick up the phone to call you, but realize you are pretty far away. I don’t see you near as often as I would like to, and the times we do spend together never seem long enough. I miss the days when we could play video games all through the night, and whenever something happened, you weren’t too far away. I know we are adults and growing up into our own lives, but I just simply miss you. I hope that when I have kids that you will get to be around them, so they know how cool their uncle is!

To put it simply, I am glad we are family. Because there are times when we may not be able to put up with each other, we know at the end of the day that family is the most important thing. You are a great person, don’t forget that. I feel as if you aren’t told that enough. Thank you for always having my back, and for being my favorite video game partner. I love you bubba!

Love Always,

Your Youngest Sister

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.
