Stop Giving Me Parking Tickets When I Pay For This School To Stay Open

You wanna keep collecting my checks?

Stop Giving Me Parking Tickets When I Pay For This School To Stay Open

The University of West Georgia is such a cute campus, it is small, local, and contains a fairly decent amount of students. But, it seems like the campus does not realize that students struggle with parking & then wanna toss a ticket onto our windshield. Excuse me?

Let me dive in head first with the new lot that was built beside the Campus Center. I started the fall semester seeing a beautiful new parking lot being built. My mind said, "YEET I can stop stalking people for a new spot." Drives in on day one & see a giant F on the sign meaning FACULTY PARKING! If I wanted to park in that lot do you know what would pop up on my car? Oh, I will tell you - a parking ticket. I pay to attend this college, so I can park WHERE I WANT!

Also, why does faculty park closer - they have legs too! Here I am, as a commuter student, having to park in the back lot and sweat off my breakfast to make my class on time. Meanwhile, I see a professor parking in the front row, RIGHT BY THEIR BUILDING. AGAIN, excuse me?!

I pay for this campus to stay open, we all do. SOOOOOOO why am I struggling with parking and tickets? WHY? If I give this school over $3,000 a semester - THEN I CAN DO AS I PLEASE.

UWG wants to keep accepting students, and expanding - then 10/10 recommend EXPANDING PARKING, ESPECIALLY FOR COMMUTER STUDENTS. Parking is an issue for commuter students, but what about the students that live on campus? It would drive me insane if I had to park in a Freshman lot BUT live at the Oaks. Do you know how far that is? What if I had to buy groceries? What about when it rains? Screw Y'all - RIGHT? And go ahead and park in faculty, or a spot not for your specific car - BUT EXPECT THAT TICKET!

UWG is tripping. Help us, help me! If the campus wants to keep accepting our checks... THEN THEY NEED TO FIX THE ISSUES THAT THEIR STUDENTS HAVE. Stop giving out tickets because we need to park closer, stop building lots for everyone EXCEPT the students, and stop wasting my money on a 15 car max lot.

Thank you, next.

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.
