15 Things You Know To Be True When You're A Cat Mom
Heaven Nash

Those who aren't cat people will never understand our obsession with our kitties. Until you have a pet of your own, you won't know the feeling of having someone greet you at the door, endless cuddles, and a packed camera-roll of your fur-baby. 10/10 recommend having a pet, they'll change your life.

1. Plants? Nope. Chargers on the floor? Absolutely not. Blinds? Forget it. 

Everyone talks about the chore of child-proofing a home. Let let me tell ya, it's just as difficult to KITTY-PROOF a home, even if it's a one-bedroom apartment.

2. Fur has become an accessory you've added to your daily wardrobe. 

After a few months of having a cat, you give up trying to lint-roll and pick off each individual piece of fur.. rock that kitty fluff sister.

3. So... what is this camera roll storage you speak of?

Napping kitty? Captured

Playing kitty? Captured

Eating kitty? Got it

Walking kitty? Yup

Breathing kitty? OH yes

4. "Yeah.. if you don't like cats, our friendship has expired, sorry!!" 

Cats > Humans, enough said.

5. Alllllllll the toys. 

TREAT YO KITTY. Your favorite go-to snack at the grocery store can wait, that cat toy is a must.

6. Just kidding, to them, the best toys are free.  

Bobby pins... bottle caps... empty cups... Q-tips...everything that isn't theirs.

7. Your cat is your therapist.. 24/7

Homework, boys, latest drama, stress, excitement, everything under the sun, you chat about with your kitty-child. She knows exactly what you're saying!!!

8. People actually have to use an alarm clock?

Top of the morning, you have beautiful sounding meows coming into your ears. Those meows translate to "Mom, wake up. I've torn up the house all night and need recharged, feed me.. now."

9. You've accepted that you're going to be a crazy cat lady for the rest of your life

Husband and children... maybe. 100 cats.. oh yes.

10. "Sorry I can't go out tonight, my cat actually wants to spend time with me". 

These times are few and far between, everything gets cancelled on these days. Am I right or....

11. Nothing in happening at 4a.m. in your home except for.. olympic stair racing

Up. Down. Up again. Roll down... again. Half way up... stumble back down. On your belly... on your back... on your head... one paw up in the air... it never ends, until the sun comes up and it's time to go to sleep since your human is at school.

12. ...Would I be judged if I walked my cat on a leash on campus?

This question crosses our mind at least once a week... the answer is do it.

13. Purrs are your absolute favorite sound 

You would bend over backward and drop anything in the world in order to make your cat purr. No better sound than your cat saying "I love you too, mom."

14. If you could have a t-shirt with your cat's mugshot on it, you would. 

Cups, socks, shirts, car decals, bedding, picture frames, etc... anything with a cat on it? You need it.

15. You wouldn't be the same without them 

No matter how many times they knock down your favorite plant, wake you up in the middle of the night, and lay on your computer when you are trying to be productive for once... you couldn't imagine life without your fur-baby.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
