To The Ones That Don't Support Our Dreams

Most of my former classmates and friends are all in college majoring in careers that are certain. They're certain they can find a job in that particular career field. They have their lives mapped out based on this career they know they'll have.

And then there's me.

I started college off as a nursing major which would have given me easy access to a career and a high paying job. I love science; I'm educated on so many aspects of it. But it didn't make me happy. I wasn't 100 percent passionate about it and it's not what I want to spend the rest of my life doing.

I'm a dreamer. I think outside of the box and I like a challenge. Writing is what I'm passionate about and I have dreams of writing for some of the biggest magazine companies someday. Which is a risk, but it's a risk I'm willing to take. Journalism isn't a career that's for certain. You have to get your words out there, connect with the right people. It's not going to be easy to start this career.

When you're a big dreamer, it's hard for other people to see the same vision you do.

But that's okay.

It's your life. Whatever makes you the happiest is exactly what you should do. The people in your life don't have to always support you. They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, and sometimes I think mine are a lot closer than I realize. But I look forward to the day where I can prove everyone wrong and show people that writing isn't just a hobby, it's a career.

There's always going to be people who doubt you. But you have to allow the doubters to be the reason you push so hard to make all of your dreams come true.

Anything is possible in life, just depends on how bad you want it. So whatever it is in your life you want to achieve, go out there and get it. It could be weight loss, quitting a bad habit, changing your major, or quitting the job you hate to pursue your real passion. Do it.

We only get one life here on Earth, so make the most of it. You can do whatever you set your mind to. Anything and everything is possible.

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.
