Because dogs are our worlds and we love them so.

15 Things All Dog Lovers Know to Be True

If you're anything like me, you believe that dogs are God's gift to the world. I mean why else would God spelled backwards be dog? If I could spend all my days surrounded by baskets of puppies, I'd be the happiest person in the world. Every person who loves dogs knows these fifteen things to be true.

1. You cry every time you see a dog.

And we're not talking like tearing up, you go into full on waterworks because you just can't handle the cuteness of the dog you are beholding.

2. You share every social media picture, video, or status that has to do with dogs.

Dogs will never not be cute or popular with your other Facebook friends, so why not have your entire timeline be filled with dogs? Or even have a board on Pinterest devoted to dogs. There is no shame.

3. You are consistently begging your parents for a dog.

Even if you already have three, you are consistently bargaining with your parents. You say you NEED another dog and that your current dog needs a friend. Or shoot, even you need a friend. You may even have powerpoints on why you should own a dog and present them to your parents on a weekly basis.

4. When you envision your future, it includes having a pack of dogs.

Forget lonely cat lady, you will be a lonely dog lady and that is completely acceptable. You get as many dogs as you want, because we all know they're better roommates.

5. If you see a dog in public, your first goal is to pet it.

You have run across streets so that you can get to a dog that clearly needs to be pet. You're simply doing this world a favor by petting as many dogs as you can. The world needs more people like you.

6. You prefer your dog over people.

Dogs love you unconditionally, even when you mess up. People aren't as forgiving. It's pretty simple if you ask me. Dogs are just better.

7. If you see a stray dog, you WILL rescue it.

Even if it's on a four-lane highway, you will pull of on the side of the road and rescue those fur-babies because they need to be safe and happy.

8. The only time you cry in movies is when the dog dies.

But for real though.

9. You consider your dogs apart of your family.

If your dogs aren't in your family pictures are you really a dog lover?

10. The dog filter on Snapchat is your life.

It's your go to filter for yourself as well as what you use on your dogs, even though they already have that face. It's just too cute not to.

11. Your entire camera roll on your phone is all pictures of your dogs, or dogs in general.

You know when people pull out their wallets to show you pictures of their kids, well this is the same thing, but with dogs. You're just so proud of how cute your dog is, like how can you not just show the world.

12. When you get homesick, it's really because you miss your dogs.

Who cares about hugs from your parents. It's doggy kisses that make the world go round. You're going home to your best friends.

13. A cuddle from a dog can make everything better.

A giant fluff ball wants to sit on your lap, you let him. Dog cuddles are the best because they're pure love, even if you can't breathe because your hundred pound lap dog doesn't understand the concept of weight distribution.

14. When you were little you probably wanted to be a veterinarian.

But then you quickly reevaluated once you realized you would have to put dogs down and you just couldn't live with the idea of that.

15. You will always maintain that dogs are man's best friend.

Dogs will always be your loyal companions and will love you no matter what. There is no comparison of dogs to other animals or even people, because simply put: we don't deserve dogs. Yet dogs are in our lives and live to make us happy. And boy do they sure do that.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.
