Not Your Average Love Letter

A cliche twist.

Not Your Average Love Letter
Colin Sullivan

“Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt” -Kurt Vonnegut

To begin we must make some clarifications. A notice of love, or writing of love, is to be able to express your passion of something through words. We choose to fall behind the safety of our words to hide from the reality of actions. We choose to write about the things we are passionate about. We choose to love these things because they make us become more aware than we once were. I was told before, “every piece of writing is a love letter.”

Comfort Found in Discomfort

To be aware of a place where it all means nothing,

to also be where everything means too much.

Sinking deep to where anxiety resides.

Unknown to the human’s toes below.

A state at which reality seems intangible.

Trying to grasp the fading firmialtiries

to the comfortable feeling of hatred.

Fear lurks through the dream,

Ingrained into us is the known feelings.

Anxiety has at last become apparent,

for the devil has grasped tighter before.

Where everything hurt.

Where we locked ourselves in to see,

To see the pain others had missed,

Coming closer to a defeat by our misery.

We fell to a point where it was easier being hurt,

Than to realize all the beauty.

A sacrifice has become a way of living.

Where we forget how to love,

we forget how to be the person we were,

to solely enjoy the unknown.

To allow ourselves in,

to allow ourselves to be standing

face to face with our biggest misunderstanding.

Our unknown has become everything,

everything we were searching for,

and everything I was running from.

Consumed in a place of discomfort,

where our brains are unraveling,

and our fingertips crave more,

craving more than just the keys below them.

Satisfying the thrill of honest ignorance,

gained knowledge overpowers our fears.

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.

Kinder Self - Eyes

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.
