Life After High School

To all the high school seniors who are ready to leave.

Scholarships for High School Seniors

Honestly, life didn't begin until high school was over.

Sure, there were good memories and fun times, but I know it will never be a place I would want to relive or go back to.

There are a lot of seniors in high school saying how ready they are to be in college and move on with their lives, and you know what? That is perfectly okay.

College is amazing. It's okay to be done with high school and want to move forward.

In college, there is no more eight hours of straight work or one option for lunch. You can wear whatever you want without the fear of getting in trouble. You want to wear your pajamas to class? Go for it! You want to eat by yourself? That is totally okay!

College, my friends, is a great place for people that are over high school. You get to surround yourself with amazing people who come from every background. You get to learn information that's actually towards your future major and goal.

College becomes a new start for you. You don't have to be the same person you were in high school. You get to choose to start over and create a whole new identity.

Your life just got a clean slate. You can be whoever or whatever you want to be. It's a safe zone.

So, to all the high school seniors out there, life gets better after high school. Sometimes it feels like it has just begun. Cherish high school, but remember that your life is only beginning. Make memories, but know that more are to come. It's okay to be ready to leave.

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.
