The Truth About Rooming With Your Best Friend

Best friends living together, what could be better than that??

The Truth About Rooming With Your Best Friend

I don't know if anyone has ever told you, "never live with your best friend because it will ruin your friendship."

When I first heard that, I was completely shocked and confused as to why that would be the case??

I mean, what person would not want to live with their best friend??

I saw it as sleepovers every night with non-stop laughing and late nights. I believe most people would picture it as such.

However, I have come to learn that my expectations have not been all that I expected them to be.

Living with someone is so much different than the usual three night long sleepovers you used to have with your friends on the weekends back in high school.

Back then, you were just using their space, but now you are actually sharing a space.

With that said, you each were raised differently on how to do certain things.

This is where the butting of heads comes in because we try to correct each other's ways of doing things, and it just leads to unnecessary arguments.

However, if you knew me then you would know that I do not actually argue. Normally, I just brush it off and try to hold my thoughts in.

I have come to learn that this is not how matters should be handled because now my patient is left running slim.

Since she is my best friend, I do know that if I was to express my thoughts that I would receive a smart comment back, so that is why I just choose to let it go.

Maybe, this is not the case for everyone or every friend, but it is just a fair warning that some people like things done their way or no way.

In my situation, this is exactly the case.

At the end of the day, we still have our good times and I am thankful to have learned from this experience.

Overall, I think it is worth toughing out because eventually, you will both understand the way each of you likes things done and will try to meet in the middle.

If this is the case for you, try to hang in there!

After all, they are your "best friend" so if they truly care about your friendship then they will communicate and work with you.

It may take time, but it shall come. If not, it was a lesson learned.

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.

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.
