To The Sister God Gave Me At Just The Right Time
Sarah Wagner

Rikka, where do I even begin?

We met early in February after I performed my favorite poem. You were my poetry selfie buddy that day, and I could tell you were something special.

Usually when I meet someone new, we keep in contact for a while but eventually lose touch if we don't see each other in person.

I'm beyond glad we kept in touch and eventually became part of each other's lives!

I remember being super shy about hanging out at first, but now I practically walk into your house like it's my own!

It's so interesting to think how 2 months ago we met for the first time and now I literally can't imagine life without you!

I think God gave me you at just the right time.

This may be something everyone and their grandmother could say, but my life literally turned upside down in less than a month.

I lost my job, poetry and therapy-all the things that kept me going. I've never been this scared in my life.

Battling a mental illness with no ability to go to therapy (temporarily) has definitely made the situation ten times harder.

Being able to spend time with you and Livi has been beyond helpful during this horrible time.

You guys have become a huge part of my life.

I don't have any biological siblings, but you have become a big sister to me.

Getting to spend the night at your place and turn a living room into a poetry session has helped tremendously in this transition to new life.

You've helped me through so many things, even before COVID-19.

Thank you for giving me the reassurance I need when my brain goes to that ugly place. Thank you for super tight hugs. Thank you for the endless laughs. Thank you for the late-night phone calls when everything hits me all at once.

Thank you for being my go-to girl in any situation.

Wait, where do I look? I don't understand Androids!

Once this whole thing is over, I can't wait for trips to the creek!

I can't wait to take Livi to the park and take turns pushing her on the swing!

I can't wait for Dollar Tree runs for more Red Bulls where one of us has to lift the other up to reach the ones stuck on the top shelf!

I can't wait for trips to the beach where I get to bury you in the sand and do everything in my power to get on your nerves and you can't do anything to stop me because you're buried in the sand!

Mainly, I can't wait to see you again; you're truly one of my favorite people.

I love you so much, and I'll see you soon!

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.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
