What My Mom Really Thinks of Europe

Well everyone, she came, she saw, and she conquered!

My mom finally made a trip out here to the motherland to visit me and together (with Karen) we travelled to 6 countries! We rode the red bus in London, ate at the cafés in Paris, walked by the river in Luxembourg, explored in Trier, bought chocolate in Antwerp, and cruised the canals of Amsterdam. Every city was beautiful and each possessed their own type of charm compared to the others.

If you know my mom, she is not afraid to speak her mind, so here are Jamie Glover's top 10 thoughts on our trip abroad:

1. "There are so many people here. Do you think they like living on each other?"

2. "Is anything ever open over here?"

3. "Why won't they laugh with me?"

4. *put Caucasian as her nationality because she forgot what that meant

5. "Do they speak Spanish in Spain?"

6. "I swear they just stare us down when we walk past them."

7. "Do they even go to school over here?"

8. "So, we're spending (insert number) dollars."

9. *covers her nose all the time in Amsterdam when walking past people smoking marijuana

"I don't want it come up on a drug test."

10. "So, is the beer warm here?"

11. "I need to come back here with someone that knows what they're doing."

12. "It's like they're off to the rat races."

Needless to say, she does want to come back here. If not for the good food we had, then because this was the first time she ever slept inputs 7 AM!

This was her first time in Europe and she loved all of the architecture and culture, but she still wishes that we had gone inside the Notre Dame in Paris (she's still mad at me for making her go on that walking tour).

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.

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.
