why Mississippi state?

Here are some reasons why I am glad I chose to go to Mississippi State.

why Mississippi state?

1. We really are a family

Everyone is so genuine at Mississippi State. If you need help someone will be there to help you, doesn't matter if it is physically needing help on a homework assignment or even mentally getting through the thrill of college. Everyone has each other's back. A quote that I think of when this topic comes around is, "Blood makes you related, but loyalty makes you family'' by Steven Jay Jarrot. To me this quote proves that as long as we are loyal to our peers they are just as much family to us as our own.

2. Friends

If I wouldn't have gone to MSU I would have half of the friendships I do now. I've meet so many people because of State and all the organizations it has on and off campus. The friendships that I have gained here at Mississippi State have impacted my life in every good way possible. Also, since there is such a wide variety of people you will never be alone or left out, there is always new people who are willing to take you in as their friend.

3. Home away from home

Mississippi state is about two hours from my house. It's not so far that it is a terrible drive for me to drive home but it is also far enough where I can get away from my family. I do love my family, it's just nice to get away sometimes. This new place that I call home holds a special place in my heart because I have so many new "family members" or friends. My actual family is my heart and joy, but they tend to use up all my patients in one visit.

4. Starkville

There are a lot of things you can do in the Starkville/Columbus area believe it or not. In Starkville there is a skating rink, lots of places to eat, and a movie theater. In Columbus there is a bowling alley, Krispy Kreme, and tons of places to shop. And if its not obvious by now I do all these things a lot, but mostly on the weekends when I have some free time.

5. Opportunity

There are many opportunities at MSU, as Albert Einstein once said, ''In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." I take this quote personal because I did go to a big public school but many things about it gave me anxiety, so my parents switched me to a private school, which I loved. Coming out of a private school and into a big university like Mississippi State is a big step that I decided to take, and I am happy that I did it because now my eyes have been opened to a whole new world.

6. Diversity

Mississippi state is so diverse. There are so many people of different cultures and different believes at Mississippi state. It is actually pretty amazing if you think about it, there are people from all over the united states at the school. I've met people from New York, Chicago, California, and its crazy that they are in Mississippi.

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.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.
