5 Ways To Kick Off Your Summer

Simple activities to get you in the summer spirit.

5 Ways To Kick Off Your Summer

1. Beach Day

Now, although this one might seem cliche, it's cliche for a reason. Going to the beach with a group of friends, some fun snacks or drinks, and some good music is a great way to kick off the summer and start enjoying the warmth! Just be prepared, you may be starting your summer off with some good memories, but you'll also be starting it off with a very sandy car. Definitely pack some extra towels and blankets for people to sit on after your day out.

2. Go Out On The Water

Whether someone you know has a boat or you have the ability to rent canoes and kayaks in your area, take this opportunity to step outside of the typically seen areas. Extra bonus points if you rent paddleboards and you knock your friends off before they knock you off.

3. Movie Marathon

Now, this one may seem counterproductive as it is done inside, but here's the thing, when during the school year can you stay up for 24 hours and watch as many movies as you want without worrying about assignments or grades? Almost never. So grab your favorite series of movies or just a collection of movies you love and start watching!

4. Take A Road Trip

This one's self-explanatory. Pack a bag and hop in your car, whether you know your destination or not, just go! There's nothing better than a spontaneous road trip with some of your closest friends.

5. Travel Abroad

Now, this one's for people who can afford it, and normally has to be planned far in advance. But, if you are able, summer is a great time to just relax and visit different locations around the world. You never know what kind of adventure you may find! "Mamma Mia!" anyone?

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.
