11  Signs You Are Living The Matcha Life

To some, matcha green tea is comparable to only one thing: heaven.

It is stone-ground Japanese green tea rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and more healthful goodness. I became obsessed a little over a year ago, and have since converted one friend to the dark side—the dark green side, to be exact. I typically describe it as “taking a sip of the earth,” which probably sounds disgusting and not at all enticing, but I swear, the earthy flavor is rejuvenating and delicious!

You know you are a true matcha lover if you show these 11 signs:

1. A day without matcha is like a day without joy

Or more accurately....

2. And it is the best part of your day

(Okay, maybe not the best part, but you look forward to your matcha time—probably more than you should.)

3. Your dream is to try every flavor

People say dream big, so don't settle for sticking to just plain matcha (though it is scrumptious in its simplest form), expand your horizons and try peach, cinnamon, maple, chocolate...the list goes on! Vanilla and mint are my personal favorites. (Try David's Tea!)

4. You consider making a matcha latte an art form

Yes, mixing up the matcha and milk to form the perfect frothy cup of green happiness does make you feel like a proud artist finishing a masterpiece.

5. It is your go-to order at coffee shops (and everyone knows it)

Just look at that, it's divine!

6. You have a surplus of matcha powder in your kitchen

You have enough to last ten years, yet you continue to stock up on more and more. Can you really have too much matcha?

7. You add it to as many things as possible.

Matcha is not just to be had in mugs. You can mix it into smoothies, chia seed pudding, muffins, etc.

8. You attempt to get everyone you know to try it.

9. You bring matcha packets everywhere so you can add some to your water bottle on the fly.

It has been said that preparation is the key to success, so by being prepared for a matcha-craving, you are setting yourself up to be one successful human being. Congrats!

10. You own a matcha whisk or mixer.

And it may or may not be just be one of your most prized possessions.

11. Matcha puns would work as the perfect pick-up lines for you.

No need to be fancy, throw in "matcha" in place of "match" and any matcha lover will be swooning.

Now go and enjoy something matcha-licious!

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.
