'So, What's Next?' And 4 Other Questions You Get During Your Senior Year Of College



I mean really, it's not a terrible question, the whole "What's next?" one.

In fact, it is one I ask myself every single day.

Senior year of college is a crazy time. There comes a point when you realize that unless you change your profession, you will probably never have a summer off again.

Lemme' tell ya', THAT is a tough realization to face.

You're tellin' me that I can't ever have 3 months of pure relaxation ever again ever? I mean, that doesn't sound all that great.

Postgrad life terrifies me and excites me all at once. I can't wait for it and simultaneously want to stay in my senior year forever.

Alright pals, let's dive in, if you are a senior in college, you probably get these questions on a weekly, or daily, or hourly basis.

1. "Are you moving back home?"


And your response could be a "Heck no" or an "absolutely" or perhaps the one we have probably all said for the last 4 years, "I DO NOT KNOW."

2. "Have you found a job?"


Sorry Sally, but NO, I do not graduate for another 5 months, companies aren't thrilled to hire "almost-college-grads-that-could-move-anywhere-in the-world-in-5-months."

3. "Are you ever going to get married?"


I mean, yes? I hope so. WHO KNOWS? I JUST WANT MY DEGREE. If there is not a ring on my finger than it'll be a no for now. After all, I am 21, hopefully I have some time, ok?

4. "Are you getting your masters?"


Alright, yes this question is pretty practical, but I still don't have an answer. I'm just taking things one degree at a time.

I think we all know these questions are coming. I think I just expected to have more answers to them when they came. Almost all of these I answer with a resounding, "I'M NOT POSITIVE BUT..."

If you are a senior in college, don't fear. Get that degree and keep putting one foot in front of the other, AND I'm proud of you, by the way, congrats!

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.
