Your Not In High School Any More

11 Things High School Students Care About That Do Not Matter To College Students
Courtney Carl

Open your eyes. You are not in high school any more, so stop acting like you are. College is called "college" because it is not high school. College is a whole different world. As a college student, you are taking your first steps into the world of being an adult.

In college no one cares. I don't say that to be harsh, but for real, in college, no one cares.

1. No one cares if you have the newest and coolest name brand clothes. Chances are that all your friends got their clothes at the nearest thrift shop. College students are cheap and they do not go out and buy the hottest brand names.

2. No one cares about how much money you have or don't have in your bank account. The chances are they are probably a broke college kid just like you. In college everyone is struggling to survive and you just have to make the best of it.

3. No one cares if you are popular or how many friends you have. College is a place to branch out and meet people you would not have even talked to in high school. In college, people want to broaden their horizons.

4. No on cares how many "likes" you get on Instagram, so stop building your image off of that. Instagram "likes" are something my high school brother cares about. Key word, "high school" brother.

5. No one cares how hard or advanced your class is. In college, everyone is taking hard classes. Every college student is there to build a life and a future by receiving a degree.

6. No one cares how cute the guy you have been talking to is. College is a time to find yourself, not your future spouse. Yes, that may happen while you are in college, but no one wants to hear you talk about that person all the time. Go discover who you are.

7. No one cares if you go some place alone. You do not need a caravan of buddies to go get bread at the grocery store. College is a time to be independent.

8. No one cares how rude or stuck up that girl is or how nasty the look she just gave you was. Your little girl drama might have mattered in your high school, but it does not matter now. Just be nice to people.

9. No one cares about the freshman 15. You will either get it or you won't. If you are gaining it, the girl sitting next to you in your biology class probably got it too.

11. No one cares how cute you look for your 8 a.m. class. In college, no one cares if you look like you have not showered in a month. Chances are that if you look like that you will probably fit right in with the rest of campus.

The point is that the petty little things you think matter, do not matter at all. This is a time to be yourself and find who you are. It is college, after all.

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.

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.
