I love you.

A Love Letter to My Best Friend

Dear Best Friend,

Love. One word, four letters, one syllable, and the thing that you have taught me the most about. It is the most beautiful thing on earth, it has been since the beginning of time. The greatest stories and the most memorable movies are those encapsulating the love between two people. As a result, it is the thing that we, as human beings, crave the most.

So often, the people who need love the most are the ones who close themselves off to it. You and I are two of those people. We look for the individuals who care enough to break through the thousands of walls we have built around our heart, and only then do we show them the smallest bit of affection.

Though you are a hard nut to crack, I was, and continue to be, lucky enough to see behind those walls. I can honestly say you have the most amazing heart. Yet, there are times I realize that you doubt it. I think that you believe you are not worth loving, and that no one will ever love you for the person you truly are. So, to protect yourself, you put up wall after wall. If I had only one wish for you, it would be for you to tear down your walls and love unconditionally.

Love is not an easy journey. Nothing worth cherishing ever is. However, that doesn’t mean we abandon all hope. I hope that one day you meet someone who makes you forget why you ever doubted in love. Until then, though, my love will have to suffice. Best friend, I love you in the way that a fat kid loves cake. I don’t say it enough, because I too struggle with this concept. However, you and our friendship make me believe in love. I see the way we care for each other and I know that if I can experience this once more in life, I will be set for eternity. Most people search their entire life to find an uninhibited love, which only makes me realize how lucky I am to have you.

I’m not sure there will ever be adequate words to describe the impact you have had on my life. So many people talk about being friends forever, yet their plans always seem to fall through. I am more sure of our friendship than most things in life, and for that reason I KNOW that we will survive the test of time. At this point, so much of you is part of me that we couldn’t really be separated if we wanted too. You truly are my other half. If I ever chose to spend my life with someone, my husband/boyfriend will have to accept that you own part of my heart as well. You have been through it all with me, and that is not something I take lightly. We’ve seen each other at our best and worst, and still chose to stick around.

I don’t know why you chose me to be your friend, but I will never question it. I’m afraid if I did, you would see the weirdo I am and run for the hills. I love you endlessly. Should you ever need a reminder, call me, text me, show up at my doorstep. I will never turn you away. I will be by your side always and forever. You are my person.


the eternal pain in your butt, your other half, & your friend for life

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.
