A Thank You To The People That Never Gave Up On Me

Thank you all, for pushing me so hard.

A Thank You To The People That Never Gave Up On Me

I'm going to start by saying thank you, it's hard to put into words how much you've all helped me along the way and how much you've shown me. You all taught me one thing or another and all of you have shaped me into the person I am today. Thank you, to Mrs. Lee and Buddy. Thank you, to Pedro and Kayley. Thank you, to Ethan and Danny. Thank you, to all my past friends, the ones that don't talk to me anymore or the ones that fell out of contact with me. The ones that were my biggest supporters even when I wasn't. Each and everyone one of you deserve a huge paragraph and so I'm going to try and do just that.

To Mrs. Lee and Buddy,

You both have been such an inspiration to me. I honestly don't know where I'd be without you. You both have taught me so much and you're the reason I liked going to school. I always looked forward to seeing you both in the morning with some other crazy story to tell you. You both laughed with me at everything. You laughed each and every time I fell off those huge chairs in the library, I'm suing you both. You pushed me to apply for college and to not give up or be deterred because I didn't think I was good enough. I remember you taking me to the VIP Event at Ashland because my mom had to work and didn't know how to get there, I don't think anyone else would've done that for me. Thank you for everything. I wish I could repay you but I honestly don't know how, I'm pretty sure I still owe Buddy like $30 in ones.

To Pedro and Kayley,

Man, we've had our ups and downs, we've been at each other's throats constantly but I wouldn't have it any other way. Pedro, you are by far my best friend, I don't think anyone's been there for me as much as you. You aren't afraid to tell me when I'm wrong or correct me when I do something stupid. You're my biggest support system. I've learned a lot of things from you, one of them being how to tell someone off in Spanish, seeing as you do it everyday to me. I've learned that there isn't a limit to what you can achieve if you set your mind to it and I've learned to be more open and accepting of myself. You've taught me that it was okay to be me, whether or not other people liked it. Thank you, for always being there when I needed you and even when I didn't. I can't remember a time you weren't in my life, and that's not something I want to experience.

To Ethan and Danny,

Y'all are the shit. I don't even know how many times we've argued or fought. More than I can count on two hands, that's for sure. But still you both keep coming back, my circle of friends isn't a very big one, so you know there's bound to be fights and arguments, but still here we are. Even when we've all said the most hurtful things to each other, things that others wouldn't easily forgive we're still back to square one. I appreciate you both so much, more than you'll know. And even if we go weeks without talking, there will still be something that makes me think of you, and I'll pick up the phone and call. We'll talk for a few hours and then we'll go back to not talking at all and I guess that's just how our friendship works. Thank you both, you're special in so many ways and I hope you both know that.

To my past friends,

Just know I haven't forgotten any of you. I never forget a face, or a friend that at one point in my life meant so much to me. Friends come and go, others stay for the long run, but I never forget my friends. I remember you all, I remember how we met. Sometimes it was in unfortunate circumstances other times it was just by luck. I remember Justin and Rain, Rachel and Tasha, Farrah and Jeena. I remember Sab and Sebastian, Sammy and Sammi, Kori and Ashley. I remember Jacob and Jamie, Alyssa and Kiersten. I remember Savannah and Kendra. I remember Savanna and Ashton, Cheyenne and Sierra. I remember meeting all of you, I remember how we met. At one time or another in my life you were my best friends, but things happen and so does life and we were all pulled apart. You may not have influenced me recently but you did help make me the person I am today. I've learned so much from everyone in my life. So thank you, all of you.

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.
