1. All dogs are super cute with literally anything they do.

Ever catch a random dog on the street doing something really cute, and you say to yourself, "Can I keep you?!" I sure have.

2. They're there for you to get you through the ruff times.

Dogs seem to know when we're having a bad day, and will do anything to make sure we are OK.

3. When you need a hug, they're always willing to be your cuddle buddy.

After one of those bad days or when you just need a hug, they're right there next to you licking your face and giving you hugs. Nothing is better than a cute, fluffy and loving dog taking up most of the couch just to cuddle with you.

4. They will sleep anywhere.

Most dogs will sleep anywhere -- the couch, bed, crate, floor, on top of you, etc. Depending on what you let them sleep on, however. Don't want the bed to get all furry!

5. Playtime with them is always fun for both of you.

Whether it's playing fetch in the backyard or going for a walk, being with them makes for a good time. They're like our best friends, just furry.

6. Sticking right by your side to keep you company, but mostly when there's food involved.

Unless you train your dog incredibly well, they're always in the kitchen wanting food. Even if you taught them not to beg, they probably secretly still hope you drop something.

7. You can tell when they're happy and that automatically makes you happy. (If it happens to be with food, so be it.)

Knowing your dog is happy from him wagging his tail a mile a minute or the smile he gives when he is loving life (like the dog holding that hot dog... wow. So happy), makes you think about how happy you are to have him.

8. They always want your attention, and if you don't give it to them how they like it, watch out.

They want your attention, so listen to them when they need to go out or want to play, because you never know when this can happen to you. Watch out. (I'm sure ,though, in reality this isn't as violent as it seems.)

9. Our own personal entertainers to get us through the day.

They have a mind of their own when it comes to new things. This Bernese Mountain dog and a lemon is pure entertainment. Nothing beats a dog that doesn't know how to act around a piece of fruit.

10. They may be dogs, but they are major copy cats.

Have you ever done something, and your dog attempts to do the same thing? It's pretty funny to watch over and over again. You may enjoy this so much and be tempted to repeat what you're doing a thousand times just to watch him copy you.

11. They know everything about you, and have no problem judging when you do something weird.

They live with you. They know things. Be careful because they're judging you hardcore. Dancing, signing and prancing around the house like a maniac? They'll probably want you to stop because you're being weird...or they're just trying to sleep.

12. Always up for some human activities like watching TV.

Dogs like doing human activities, too. Watching TV especially. Who can't enjoy some time spent with your dog watching both of your favorite shows. I'm sure you guys can agree on something. If not, maybe it's best to give him the remote.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
