6 Differences Between a Dog Lover and a Dog Owner

There are at least two types of people in this world. One is a person who is a absolute dog lover. The other type is someone who owns a dog or two or three. I myself has four dogs back at home in Hartsville. I have three little ankle biters and a lap who thinks he's a little ankle biter as well. I also have friends that do not have animals but do share a love for them. However, there are some differences between a dog lover and a dog owner. Some are fun and some are....well not so much.

1. A dog lover will 9 out of 10 have the bed to themselves. However, a dog owner will mostly likely be fighting with their dog for bed space.

2. A dog lover will usually has peace and quiet in their home. While a dog owner will usually have the sweet serenity of a squeaky toy.

3. You think you're going to get some private time? HA! A dog will always follow you no matter where you go, such as the bathroom.

4. You're house will never be clean. You have dog hair, toys, but also if you're dogs are like mine, toilet paper EVERYWHERE!

5. Let it be known that dogs usually love saying hello with their face. Those commercials that you see the dog sitting by the door when their owner comes in is a lie.

6. A dog lover will wake up to the sunshine coming through their window. A dog owner will wake up to their dog in their face (breathing and/or licking it)

Whether you are a dog owner or a dog lover, there are negatives and positives in both. However, based on my experiences, there is nothing better than having some fur babies to make your day amazing.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
