12 Things Only Over-The-Top Pet Parents Will Understand

Because pets are a vital part of our families.

12 Things Only Over-The-Top Pet Parents Will Understand

Most families across the US have/ have had a pet. Whether it's a dog or an iguana, it is often that such pets become part of the family in Western culture. As such, our pets are pampered to the max.

So, here are 12 things you'll only understand if you are an over the top pet parent.

1. Celebrating pet birthdays

When you buy gifts and a treat for your pet on their birthday, you know they are officially part of the family.

2. Giving them treats for literally everything

Sits *Treat* Stays *Treat* Trips over their own feet *Treat*

3. Dressing them up for holidays (or just a normal Tuesday)

Nothing is cuter than a cute pet in a sweater.

4. Having full conversations with them

Who else are you going to talk to when you're home alone?

5. Getting them their own advent calendar for Christmas

Chocolate for me, gingerbread biscuits for you.

6. Buying them all the cutest toys

When else would you buy that animated avocado plush toy?

7. Letting them sleep in your bed

Fuzzy snuggles are the best.

8. Asking their opinion

I agree the black sweater is much more flattering.

9. Creating their own social media accounts

But why does my dog have more followers than me?

10. Not wanting to leave them at home when you go out of town

I'm sure I could fit her under my hoodie to get on the plane.

11. Getting them a pup-cup at Starbucks

If I get a sweet treat, so do they.

12. Dancing around the house with them

There's no better dance partner than the one who doesn't have a choice.

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.
