Things I Miss About School

Missing not only school but the people who I have met along the way

Things I Miss About School

First of all, I never thought I would be typing something that starts with missing school. I have always waited for summer to come all throughout my elementary, middle and high school days. This is the time when you don’t have to do homework, you don’t have anywhere to be and you can go and hang out with friends all day. But recently, I have wanted to go back to school in Wisconsin, I know it's strange right, who wants to go back to school and who wants to go back to Wisconsin. (Sorry for all of you who live there but there are no mountains there) I just can’t get it out of my head, it also doesn’t help that I don’t have a job here back home.

1. Teammates

I am on the soccer team at Beloit and I never thought that the girls on my soccer team would become like a family. We do everything together, eat dinner, do homework, go out together, and most of all practice together. I have ever felt this close of a connection with a team in my thirteen years of playing soccer and it's hard to be away from them for a whole three months. It’s nice having those people who are always there for you and are always there to hang out with as well as you know that they have your back.

2. Always Having People to Hang Out With

When you are at college, you are living with all of these people who are on the same page as you, away from home and in college. Because of this, there are always people to hang out with when you are feeling lonely or just want to go do something. You can usually call or text someone on campus and they are able to hang out or they are up for whatever you want to do.

3. Always Have Things to do

On campus, you are in your own little world, the only thing you are concerned with is what is happening in your world. No matter what day it is or the time, there is always something to do. Even if that’s just sitting in your room watching Netflix. As I am home alone, I hardly have anything to do besides work out twice a day and then do nothing in between. At school you have classes, then soccer, then homework during the week which is stressful but you have things to do. Then on the weekends, when you don’t have games, you finish your homework and then go hang out with friends at night and just relax.

4. Set Schedules

Along with number three is set schedules where you have to do things each day. Now for some people, this isn’t ideal, but to me when I am just sitting at home with nothing to do, a set schedule is something I’m seriously missing at the moment. I miss where I have certain things to get done in a day with places to be each day. Although doing homework is not ideal to do every day, I miss having those things to do to keep me busy. Here at home, I don’t have anywhere to be nor do I have any responsibilities which is ideal for some people but if you’re like this for most of the summer, you start to get bored, or at least I do. I know as soon as I get back I know I will be regretting missing school but for now, this is what I feel.

I know that this is a short list however, you can’t really miss a lot about school, I just miss the people as well as the activities that I participate in with these amazing people. To all my friends that I have made in my first year of school, I am excited to see all of you again in a few weeks but I am not ready to start school again. I’m ready to make new memories this next year with all of you and many more people that I haven’t met yet!

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