Shhh... It is a Silent Disco!

Who doesn't love trying new things, especially with dancing?

Shhh... It is a Silent Disco!
Tess Weaver

I love dancing. I try to dance at least once a day somewhere just so I can get my groove on. I mean dancing is all about expressing yourself and letting go for a little bit. Now that I'm in college I thought that every night I'd go out dancing at parties or events. However, it seems like not that many people like to dance. I've tried to see if there were events around that offer a fun dancing experience, but so far I haven't been able to find anything.

Finally, when I thought my search for a great dancing experience was over my roommate found a solution. We walked to a Cold Stone Creamery and they had a bulletin board with posters put up everywhere. So many fun activities were hung up all around us. There were lots of sporting events, speakers and food festivities. My roommate though, spotted something at the very bottom that caught her attention.

At the very bottom of the board was a sign posted about a silent disco that was going to take place in about a week. I've never even heard of a silent disco so this was very interesting to me right off the bat. What was a silent disco? What kind of music would be there? Who would be there? Another very convincing thing that sealed the deal was the price. Tickets were only five dollars online. Why not go and try a new experience, especially if it is that cheap.

A week later my roommates and I ventured out and went to the August Wilson Center, where the event was being held. Now when we first got there we were nervous. Looking in through the glass windows it didn't look like much was going on. Not very many people seemed to be there and we thought we had come to late.

Once we stepped inside though and I saw the brightly colored headphones I knew I wanted to stay and see how things would turn out.

I finally learned how a silent disco worked. You receive headphones that play different music in them and you can control which DJ you are listening too (the headphones change colors depending on what DJ you are listening too). Along with that there is a volume adjuster you can use to make the music as loud as you want.

I thought it was going to be so awkward to dance with these headphones on because I thought that I would still hear the silence of the quiet room. I was wrong. Once I put those headphones on the music consumed me and I couldn't stop dancing. I had so much fun switching between the two different DJs they had there. While one DJ played a slower tune another played a fast upbeat one. It was cool to see the headphones change colors depending on what you were listening to. I got so involved with the music and dancing that when I did eventually take of my headphones to talk to my roommates I was aware of the silence in the room.

That was the funniest part. Watching the people dance when I couldn't hear the music in my own head made everyone seem so silly. I loved how everyone could just dance and have fun in this type of environment without feeling embarrassed.

Going to this silent disco was a wonderful and very fun experience. I'm glad I got to enjoy it with my wonderful roommates and it was something new and fun to try. It involved something I loved to do which was dancing, and I'll never give up an opportunity to show of my dance moves.

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.
