Why Did You Stop Texting Back?

Oh, okay, bye forever I guess?

Why Did You Stop Texting Back?
Galore Mag

Okay, so imagine you and your friend, not even your best friend but just any one of your friends, even the kid that's in your phone as "kid from accounting 223", are hanging out having a conversation. You're both just having a random conversation about anything really, and appear to be totally into the conversation, and its casual but all the sudden, mid conversation, your friend just gets up and walks away and never comes back or says anything about it.

That would be sort of bizarre right? I don't think anyone would think that's super normal. You would definitely be like "hey Craig we were kind of just in the middle of a conversation I don't know if you just got possessed or...". I mean, I personally wouldn't classify that as just your average Tuesday.

So why does our generation do that with texting? Like, where did we learn that abruptly refusing to respond to someone is an acceptable way to get them out of your life?

I get it, I get it. Telling someone you don't want to be their friend, or you don't like them as more than a friend is kind of scary. For sure you don't want to be a total jerk and be like "hey I know we've been having some great conversations but I don't think its working out". So naturally the less rude thing to do is just stop responding? Makes total sense.

If you think about it, magically disappearing is nearly a form of cruel and unusual punishment. Now you've left the person to sit there and ruminate about what they did wrong and why you super randomly disappeared, all because its kind of hard to tell someone the truth!

Of course no one likes to hear that this super cool person they just met a few weeks ago actually doesn't feel exactly the same about them but don't you think that maybe just maybe there's a slightly kinder way to handle the situation?

I know that my humble opinion isn't going to make everyone start telling the truth but I'm going to venture to guess that most people would appreciate a simple explanation instead of a much less entertaining version of a David Blaine trick.

Or maybe I'm totally wrong and everyone in fact is getting possessed and we have a much bigger problem on our hands.

Guess we'll never know!

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. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
