What I’ll Miss About My Freshman Year Of College

Because this year went by way too fast.

What I’ll Miss About My Freshman Year Of College
Erin Kron

As the year ends and finals week begins, a feeling besides stress enters my mind. Although I am nervous about my exams, I am just as worried about what it will be like on my last day of freshman year. The memories I’ve made with the people I’ve met are coming to an end. I know this is not the end, and we will all be together next year, but I am sad to see them go. I’ll always remember my freshman year of college and everything that made it so amazing.

Here’s everything I miss about my freshman year:

I’ll miss waking up in my shaky lofted bed every morning.

Even though it might be a pain in the ass going up and down that ladder 24/7, my dorm room bed feels like home to me.

I’ll miss sharing a dorm room with my best friends.

Being in a triple gave me one of the best experiences of my life. Like a lot of people, I’ve never shared a room before. At the beginning of the year, this was something totally new to me. Now I wonder what it’ll feel like not waking up across from my best friends.

I’ll miss bumping into my roommates when were in each other's way because our room is so damn small.

“Whoops, sorry!” is something we say way too often around the room. I’ll miss my little warm nook under my desk where I spent most of my school nights.

I’ll miss walking around campus on a nice warm afternoon.

Spring is one of my favorite seasons around campus because everything is so beautiful. I love seeing the tulips bloom and the grass grow greener. I’ll miss grabbing an iced coffee with friends after class and sitting on a rooftop studying in the sun.

I’ll miss seeing faces I recognize around campus.

Whether it’s an old friend or one of my sorority sisters, I always love running into someone I recognize. Seeing familiar faces always gives me a sense of belonging and makes this big campus feel not so big after all.

I’ll miss all the food around me.

With a Chipotle and Starbucks right down the street, what more could I ask for? My bank account won't miss all the restaurants, but I sure will.

I’ll miss having fun any night of the week.

Only Tuesday? Not a problem. You don't have class till 11 tomorrow, so stay up as late as you want.

I’ll miss all the school spirit.

Any sport, any season, thousands of students are always cheering on our athletes no matter what. Seeing the parades and games for the first time was such an amazing college experience that I’ll never forget. I’ll miss the enthusiasm and all of the school pride.

I’ll miss how easy the work was.

Because I’ve only heard it gets harder.

I’ll miss the people who made this year so wonderful.

Coming to a place where I hardly knew anyone was interesting at first. It was my chance to let my actions decide my future. The people I met truly gave me the best year I’ve ever had and I couldn't thank them enough for it. I’ll miss my best friends and the people who gave me a sense of family while I was away from mine.

So thank you, Freshman year, I’ll miss you always.

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. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
