Trust me, I know there's nothing to do

4 Things To Do Today If You Live In A Small Town

Listen, I know a lot of people have the luxury of living in a big city or even just a regular old city, but I don't. My town's population barely hits 8,000, and there's only one high school in it. I graduated with about 200 other kids. It's summer now, so I'm back home from college. Between work and sleep, there's little time to myself. What time I do have, however, I make sure to make the most of it. If you're in the same boat as me, here's what you can do, too.

1. Hang out in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

Didn't you know? If your hometown doesn't have a movie theater, the Wal-Mart parking lot is the perfect place to get all your entertainment needs met. In just an hour you can see a bunch of rednecks doing donuts, a drunk guy running into everything, people being arrested or chased out, and even at least twenty people that you forgot ever even existed. And the best part, it's FREE! I know that's what college students love.

2. Hop in your car.

Are people driving you crazy? Is your family too loud? Do you just need some you time? Just hope in your car, fill up your tank, and put the pedal to the metal. Roll your windows down, crank that music up as high as you can, and just go. And if you feel that might be a little lonely, grab a friend and go for it. You'll both actually have a lot of fun, I promise.

3. Visit your old high school.

I know, I know, who wants to go back to hell? The thing is, I've never met someone who didn't have at least one teacher they love and admire. Go visit that one (or five) and tell them how much they impacted your life. Or just go back in and see how far you've come, and remember that you've still got so far to go.

4. Take a nap.

Girl, you know you're tired. You know college took a lot of you. Coming back home, going back to work, seeing old friends. Hiding from people you don't want to see. That's going to take a lot out of you too. Take a break, close your eyes, fall into the dream world, and ignore your responsibilities. It's my favorite thing to do.

Okay, so clearly my tips aren't the most helpful in the world. Truth be told, I've been living in this same, small town for upwards of 15 years now, and I still get bored out of my mind. I understand the pain of not being able to do anything, and constantly going crazy. But nonetheless, I love this place I get to call home.

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.

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.
