My Family Is Moving From My Hometown To My "Hometown"

My family is moving from my favorite place, to their favorite place.

My Family Is Moving From My Hometown To My "Hometown"
Blakeley Addis

Before my parents thought about having kids, they moved to Winter Haven, Florida. When they moved they made friendships that would last a lifetime, literally. They fell in love with the town they lived in and the people that they surrounded themselves with. When they found out that my mom was pregnant, they planned on staying there, where they were genuinely happy.

A couple of things fell apart a few months before I was born, and against what they actually wanted to do, they packed up and moved back to Walhalla, South Carolina after I was born.

I am now 19 years old and I have a 15-year-old little sister. My family has lived here for 19 years now, and here in South Carolina, we are surrounded by many friends and literally all of our family.

A few months ago, my parents decided to move back to Florida, where they are genuinely happy.

At first, I was excited for them, and I still am. But after a few months of time to really think about things, I am a little sad.

I know my parents will be happy there, and it will be good for us all when they make move. But I can not sit here and not think of everything we will be leaving behind here.

Leaving this town means leaving my grandparents, all of our friends, and the house that my dad built for us to grow up in.

I really am okay with them moving, because I know they will be happier. It just makes me sad to think about not coming here for holidays and not having my childhood friends so close by. Not coming home to this house scares me too. I do not like the idea of someone else living in the house that I grew up. I am sure I will come to terms with the idea though because it is obviously going to happen.

But they do say everything takes time, and I think that my parents have spent enough time here and that it is time for them to be happy.

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.
