To the Friend I Never Saw Coming This Semester

Sometimes people walk into your life, or are already in your life, that will impact you more than you know

To the Friend I Never Saw Coming This Semester

After eight semesters of college, countless adventures, and so many friends, ones I needed and ones that needed me, this semester, I found a friend in someone I didn't expect.

In the good times, and the hard, you were there for me. Every time my heart was breaking, you were my shoulder, my rock. When I was crying so hard I almost couldn't breath, you had the words I needed.

When I lost my best friend and I didn't like the person I had become, you were there to help me remember who i once was and who I could be, in the future, and today.

When I was nervous about applying for a job, you helped me find the words to describe who I am and who I can be.

Every paper I wrote, you helped edit. Every story I told, you were there to listen. On the days I came over after not speaking much, you listened to me blab on and on, making sure I caught up on my daily word count.

When I was sick, you cared for me. Making me the weird food I requested when it was the only thing that sounded good. You let me use your bed when it was the only thing I could sleep on and you made sure I took my medicine.

Even after all of this, you probably don't even realize how much you have impacted me. How much you have helped me, guided me, and loved me.

So mom, thank you for being the friend I needed this semester. For helping me get through everything. For always being there. I will never be able to thank you enough for all you have done for me, for how much you have loved me, even when I didn't deserve it. I don't think I could have made it through This semester without you.

You have always been there for me, and this semester you have really pulled through.

Thank you for being so amazing, mom.

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!"

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.
