Unbelievable

I felt for them all, but especially Marie

Unbelievable

This week has been a hard week, I began watching the new limited series on netflix called unbelievable. I was sickened, enraged, hurt, pushed, happy, and I felt. I felt for the girl Marie, I felt for the two older women, I felt for the young woman who jumped to not be attacked, I felt for the college girl who just left her home to be in another state attending college. I felt for all of them, the tears they cried, the fear they had, the anger. I went through it. But for Marie I felt her pain just a little more than all of them. Being told that you are lying, by the people that are supposed to protect you. They tell you that they don't believe you and you wanted it to happen, you wanted to do the awful things that happened to you. Then he messages you and says you are a lying bitch, that you will never last in court cause a female officer told him not to worry that the case would never hold in court. You are sick, enraged, hurt, feeling distraught, that he can do it to somebody else even if they say no. Then he walks and he walks free. He doesn't even have to pick up trash for what he did to you because the law did not believe me. But it happens to you again, you won't tell anyone because look how well it happened last time, no one believed you and they said you lied. You tell a few people that you survived some horrible things and they believe you but you do not want to go through the horrible effects like the first and the second time. The way the cops treated you the second time. The way everyone screamed you were a whore and you lied to your face. How you lost everyone the first time. It has happened multiple times but you do not tell a soul you do not tell anyone. Because why should you? Why would anyone believe a 15, 16, 17, 18 year old girl? They won't, so you close your mouth and continue each day as if nothing happened. You feel enraged listening to the cops belittle Marie Adler, you feel for her, you want to cry with her and hold her. You want to stick up for her because she can't, you want to tell her you got her back and you believe her because no one did for you.

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.

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!"

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.
