13 Reasons Why I Will Miss My Puppy
Kailyn Schoonover

If you have ever had a pet, you know what it feels like to be loved unconditionally. They are loyal, loving, and completely forgiving. They bring you joy in ways that no human can. They have a place in your heart that no one can fill. So when they pass away, there is just a hole. A hole that you can never fill with anything, no matter how hard you try.

Have Your Voice Heard: Become an Odyssey Creator

All you are left with are the memories, the many memories of them making you laugh and comforting you. Here are a few things that I remember the most of my precious baby:

Greeting me at the door after a long day.

Waking me up in the morning, even if I'm not ready to wake up.

Always following me into the bathroom.

Begging to go outside, then wanting right back in.

Knowing when I am upset and need extra love.

But refusing to accept my kisses.

How they react when I scratch that “sweet spot” or rub their bellies.

How excited they get going on a car ride, even though they have done it a thousand times.

Playing with their food, it’s necessary really.

Every time I open the fridge, I am obviously getting something for them.

The neighbor’s dogs are the enemies, they have to chase them, for hours.

Sometimes it’s necessary for them to bark for no reason.

At the end of the day, they make me feel so safe and loved.

Many people say that having a pet isn't worth the pain when you lose them. I say that it's all worth it. The memories you make with them, how much they make you laugh, how loved they make you feel, in the end it's worth every tear you cry. Yes, losing a pet sucks. Yes it feels like a part of you is missing. But you got to love that animal their whole life. You got to cherish them, you made memories with them, they are forever a part of you now. Hold on to that. Never forget that.

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.
