I'm Saying Goodbye To Community College And Hello To University

I still needed time to find myself.

I'm Saying Goodbye To Community College And Hello To University
Jennifer Hancock

For the past two years, I have been attending a community college in the town over from my hometown. Today, I took my last final and walked out the doors for the last time.

I have extremely mixed feelings about it.

On one hand, I wanted to feel super sad. I wanted to feel like I did leaving my high school.

But I didn't.

I didn't because I know I have SO much more ahead. Sure, this part of my life is closed, but I am so ready to see what the future brings me.

I cannot leave my community college without looking back at what attending it has taught me.

If you would have told me two years ago that I was going to be moving out, attending a university and living life on my own, I would have laughed in your face.

I truly was not ready for that.

Now, I am so excited to attend a university. I feel so ready to be on my "own."

If I did not attend a community college, I would not have gotten to that point, I don't believe. It has helped me to become more of my own person giving me a small taste of what college is like.

With that being said, the main lesson that I am taking away from attending community college is I got a sense of what going to college life is like.

I wasn't thrown into something I would never have been able to handle, but I did get to prepare for what is coming.

It was like going swimming for the first time but just staying in the shallow end.

I believe that is exactly why I went to a community college first.

However, there were a few things about a community college that I obviously did not like. But honestly, when are we always satisfied with every single thing we do?

Hardly ever.

We can always find faults. I can truthfully say that attending a small town community college was one of the best choices I made, education wise.

So with that being said, thank you to my community college for letting me grow as a person before I go out of state to further my education, you were so important to me for two years, and now I cannot wait to see what my future holds.

I'm ready to dive into the deep end.

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.
