To My First Ever Best Friend, I Have No Clue What I Would Do Without You
Christina Billie

Dear Best Friend,

I don't even know where to begin. We've been friends for over 18 years now, which is insane to think about. I don't remember exactly when we first met, or how it first came about, but I'm glad it happened because I couldn't imagine not having you in my life.

My best friend from across the street soon became my best friend in swimming lessons, to best friends in pre-school, to being my best friend all throughout elementary, middle and high school, and now college, despite going to different schools.

Being able to go to pre-school together was awesome. We were in the same class every year, and that's how we got closer. We would be partners on the different "field trips" we took, like when we got to go across the street to visit the police station, and we would have the time of our lives when we would go to Chuck E. Cheese for almost every birthday party.

The playdates we had were iconic. Every time I would come over to your house, we would jump into your little Barbie Jeep and ride it all up and down the street. We would go inside and eat mint chocolate chip ice cream. As we got older, we couldn't fit into that Barbie Jeep anymore *sad*, but we did get to play Webkinz and ride your skateboard in your backroom.

I moved away in 2005, and that was so rough because my best friend now lived a half-hour car ride away. I hadn't met any new friends in my new town yet. The move didn't stop us, however, because we would make our parents drive us to each other's houses all the time so we could still see each other. We would call each other on the phone all the time to see if we could have a playdate, and it would turn out to be some of the best days ever.

We went through all of our phases together: Webkinz, Jonas Brothers, Barbies, and let's not forget that good ol' One Direction phase we both went through. We both had One Direction posters that covered the walls so much that you couldn't tell what color paint was behind it.

We had all the merch you could imagine, from bracelets to T-shirts, to pillowcases and even those life-sized cardboard cutouts. We got to go through all of those cringy phases together, and I'm so glad we did because now we have a bunch of things to laugh about.

In high school, we started to drift apart a little bit and didn't get to hang out as much. Between you playing sports and me getting a job, we couldn't fit into each other's schedules, but we still kept in touch and I'm so happy we didn't lose each other during that time. I have no clue what I would do without you.

Now, we talk every day, we go to colleges that are just a short train ride away from each other, and we're seeing the Jonas Brothers together in under six months! Thank you so much for all of the memories, always being there for me, and always supporting me with everything I do in life.

I'll always be here for you and rooting for you in everything you do. I'm so excited to spend an entire lifetime with you and create so many more memories!

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.
