10 Signs You're Obsessed With Your Dog

10 Signs You're Obsessed With Your Dog

They say that a dog is a man's best friend. This is true for women in many cases as well. I've been lucky enough to have had two amazing dogs in my life, and I think it's safe to say my obsession with them is borderline crazy. Here's 10 signs that you may have this same obsession:

1. You always want to hold and snuggle them, to the point where it annoys them.

You've definitely been guilty of trying to snuggle up next to them during their nap because they just look so darn cute. Which sometimes results in them getting annoyed that you disturbed their sleep and moving across the room.

2. You miss them the most when you're away from your family.

You can call your mom. You can call your dad. You can call your siblings. But you can't call your dog. Relationships with dogs need to be made face-to-face, and so your parents can't blame you when you miss your dog more than them while you're at school.

3. You find yourself looking at pictures of them for fun in your spare time.

More often than you'd like to admit, you find yourself browsing through the Camera Roll on your phone, looking at pictures of your dog or re-watching that video of them for the 100th time. And usually while you do this your face is plastered with the biggest smile. So next time you see me smiling at my phone, no I'm not texting a boy, I'm probably just looking at pictures of my dog.

4. You sing to them and replace words in the song with their name.

Tell me you don't do this and I'll show you a liar.

5. You get excited when your plans fall through because that means you get to hang out with your dog.

Dinner and a movie with your friends = $30.

Hanging out with your dog all night = Priceless.

6. You have full- on conversations with your dog as if they can understand a word you're saying.

Sure, you're dog understands a bit of the English language, such as good boy/girl, outside, treat, sit, etc. But for the most part, they usually have no idea what you're talking about. Yet you continue to talk to them and tell them things as if they know exactly what you're saying. 'Cause your dog just gets you like no one else does, right?

7. Their toys cover every inch of your house but it doesn't bother you.

Clutter usually bothers you but when it comes to your dogs toys you find comfort in seeing them all over your house. Your dog has way too many toys, and most of them are missing an eye by now, but you can't bring yourself to throw away a single one.

8. You share your favorite food with your dog.

They've mastered the art of begging and you simply can't resist. You'll even give them the last bite of your burger if they look cute enough.

9. You have about 100 nicknames for them.

From terms of endearment such as baby and boo, to every adaption of their actual name possible, to random nicknames that make no sense whatsoever, you call your dog everything in they book. And they respond to each one.

10. You truly believe your dog is the cutest dog in the world.

And you are willing to argue with anyone who says otherwise.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
