Cats are love. Cats are life.

11 Reasons Why Cats Are Awesome
Jamie Corbett

The world's greatest debate:cats or dogs? Being the lover of animals I am, this is a particularly hard question, but growing up with a cat as amazing as mine I have evolved into a Cat Lady. Here are a few reasons why I think cats are awesome.

1. They pick you.

Sure, you can adopt a dog and of course they're going to love you. But you don't adopt a cat. I mean technically you can, but there's a good chance they can hate you. Cats are actually adopting us, and if you don't understand what I mean, then well, you must not own a cat yet.

2. Toe beans!

Have you seen their feet? Their toes look like jelly beans, and they're so cute, and I can't explain so just look at this giph.

3. Soft and furry.

Petting a cat is like petting a cloud or a silk blanket. They're so soft and cozy, and cat cuddles are probably one of the best things in the world.

4. Always down for a nap.

Don't like napping alone? Worry no more! Cats sleep 12-16 hours a day, so they're always down for a good snooze.

5. Cat memes.

Some of the best memes are cats. Grumpy Cat, the Pusheen Cat (okay yeah I know, not a meme but still).

6. Cat Cuddles.

My favorite past time is cuddling with my cat. Nothing says love and companionship better than a lovely cat cuddle.

7. Head butts.

Some people don't like when dogs lick them, well no worries because cats just head butt you to give you a 'kiss'.

8. Laser Chasing.

Okay, seriously, what is cuter than a furry kitty chasing around the dot of a laser pointer? Nothing. Nothing at all.

9. Halloween Everyday.

Owning a black cat makes it feel like Halloween everyday, considering majority of witches own black cats. I mean seriously, who doesn't love Halloween?

10. Kittens.

Okay cats are great, and wonderful and cute, but baby cats are even more so. The furry little balls of energy are the best at playing games and are the cutest things to watch take naps, eat, stretch, basically anything really.

11. Purring.

An actual way you can tell if your cat is happy, but also one of the most magical things that can happen to a cat owner. I love the feeling and sound of a roaring purr, because the more they purr the happier they are and the happier they are the more they love you.

12. Feet pounding.

I love being used as a bed for my cat, especially when she does the adorable foot pounding thing to get comfortable.

Just as Stuart McMillan said, "A meow massages the heart." Cats are intelligent, independent, affectionate, funny, caring, and adorable creatures.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
