15 Reasons Coming Home to Pets is Just the BEST

Coming home wouldn't feel right if I didn't have my pets to look up at me with a smile in their eyes the minute I get there. My home wouldn't be complete at all without them there. If I'm stressed from a long day, I know I'm always welcome at home because I can wrap my arms around my dog and hold my pet rats to my chest as I relax from whatever happened during the day. My pets are my family, and there will always be a place for them in my heart for as long as I live. Here are my reasons why coming home to pets is the absolute best part of my day.

1. Being greeted by Lucky

2. Being greeted by my rats

3. Seeing Lucky smile

4. Watching Lucky turn into a sausage

5. Having my rats snuggle with me while I do homework

6. Having my dog lay down by my bed and hang out with me

7. If it's a stressful day, Lucky will come on my couch with me and expects belly rubs

8. Watching my rats clean themselves

9. Being able to scratch Dumbo's favorite spot and watch her fall asleep in my lap

10. Not being able to go anywhere in my house without Lucky following me there, including the bathroom

11. Taking the many pictures of my dog because she's so photogenic

12. Taking photos of my rats because they're photogenic, too!

13. Giving my rats all the yummy treats they deserve

14. Watching my rats play

15. Knowing that they're my forever-family even though Lucky doesn't exactly love my rats as much as I do

No matter what type of pet you have, you know that the feeling of coming home and seeing their faces after a long day is the best. Knowing that you are everything to your pets and them seeing you makes their day is probably one of the best feelings in the world. They love you unconditionally and we're their world. Pets aren't animals, they're family, and I love how I will always have something good to come home to.

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.
