But aren't we just owned by cats?

10 Things All Cat Owners Know To Be True

Owning a cat, or being owned by a cat rather, is a great experience. Cats love unconditionally; sometimes they just have a weird way of showing it. Being owned by a cat can be boiled down to ten short points.

10. Cat hair is a permanent part of your wardrobe.

You probably have lint rollers stashed in every room in your house and in your car, but after the third attempt to rid your clothing of hair you just accept defeat.

9. Having company means vacuuming the furniture (and apologizing for the cat hair as soon as your guest walks in).

The first thing you think of when guests are mentioned is vacuuming the couch and the house in general. And your staple greeting is "Hi! How are you? Excuse the cat hair!"

8. Leaving glasses sitting around is a cardinal sin (especially if they still have something in them).

The best way for someone to get banned from your house is for them to leave a half-full glass sitting around. And having to turn your back on a full glass is grounds for an anxiety attack.

7. Having a fully-decorated Christmas tree is a thing of the past.

You made that mistake one year, and now one of those precious ornaments that your great-great-aunt Sue made when you were born is now a thing of the past. Never again.

6. Your bed is no longer your bed.

You are no longer allowed to stretch out and enjoy the full space of your bed. Now you are lucky to be able to get in your bed. Excuse me, the cat's bed.

5. Leave a backpack or purse lying around, and you run the risk of having a stowaway.

Curiosity did kill the cat, but it can also cause the cat to be discovered on your way to class.

4. You live in the cat's house, not it in yours.

You should just be grateful that Fluffy is generous enough to let you live with her.

3. Hearing a commotion at 3 A.M. is nothing out of the ordinary.

You know that the prime feline exercise hour is from 3:00 to 4:00. It's completely normal to hear claws skidding on the floor and things crashing in the wee hours of the morning.

2. You will never be bored.

Cats are always into something. Always. The entertainment never ends.

1. You will never be without a friend.

Even when your cats are taking up your entire bed and you're barely able to cover up, you know that you are blessed to have them as a part of your life. And you will always have someone who loves you.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
