Signs You're A Former Dancer

Or a list of items I have in my closet.

Signs You're A Former Dancer
Time Out
  1. You’re acutely conscientious of the length of your toe nails.

    Years of needing to keep them at the perfect length week after week have made you wary about letting them grow like a normal human being might.
  2. Your closet is a shrine to dance recitals past.

    You know you’re never going to use any of these costumes again, but you don’t have the heart to get rid of them. So whenever you open your closet, you’re assaulted by tutus. Well, there are probably worse ways to go.
  3. You also have a wide array of accessories ranging in usefulness.

    Tiara? Check. Flower clip? Check. Flower crown? Heck yeah. Elephant ears? What, are you kidding? You’ve got it all, and it’s perfect for whenever you just need to be a princess. Or an elephant. Or - OR - an elephant princess.
  4. You still find glitter in strange places.

    The herpes of makeup: it’s been years, but you’ll never be entirely rid of it.
  5. Ditto with bobby pins.

  6. You’re pretty skilled with hair and makeup.

    ...unfortunately, your skills are limited to buns and stage makeup which may not be entirely useful anymore.
  7. You have all your old programs and ticket stubs.

    ...and you have them all arranged chronologically in an album. Or maybe just strewn about the house randomly. Either way.

  8. You still feel a fierce loyalty to your old dance studio.

    Whether it’s since closed down, is halfway across the world, whatever issues it may have had, it was home, and you wouldn’t have gone anywhere else.

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.
