College has taught me parent's are typically right 99% of the time.

25 Times Your Parents Were Right Although At The Time You Didn't Want To Admit It
Aneka Voth

I'm not the type of person who likes to admit I'm wrong, or even worse, that someone else was right, but recently I've been put in some situations that have made me realize that, if I were to admit I was wrong, I would be saying it to the two people who brought me into this world--my parents. I know they're both dying for the moment I confess they were right and can say, "I told you so!"

Here is the short list of things my parents were 100% right about:

1. "Nothing smart happens after midnight."

2. "Go with your gut."

3. "She's not really your friend."

4. "Don't wear a bra until you have to."

5. "Everyone goes through a heartbreak."

6. "A relationship is never the same the second time around."

7. "It's okay to spend time at home."

8. "You'll never get over him sleeping with your friends."

9. "High school doesn't define who you are, but it still matters."

10. "Save your money."

11. "It's okay to be single."

12. "Someday you're going to miss home."

13. "There's nothing a good glass of wine can't fix."

14. "Watch who you drink with."

15. "Bring your jacket!"

16. "You'll regret not being nicer to your brother."

17. "Never miss a chance to pee."

18. "School should always come before your social life."

19. "Being a kind person goes a long way."

20. "The girls who are popular in middle school won't be relevant in high school."

21. "Never use 'marry rich' as your go-to plan."

22. "Clean as you go."

23. "Everything in moderation."

24. "You'll regret rushing to grow up."

25. "Someday you'll understand I'm right."

So, if you haven't figured out parents are total badasses and actually do know what they're talking about, you will soon. Until then, good luck!

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!"
