6 Reasons Every Woman Needs A Dog

6 Reasons Every Woman Needs A Dog

It's the partner in crime you've always dreamed of.

Whoever said a dog was "man's best friend" clearly never met a woman. I've had dogs all my life, granted I was deathly afraid of them until the age of 6...BUT that's beside the point. Point is, this is the first time I haven't had a dog to come home to every day and I no longer no how to function. I'm the woman that falls in love with every puppy she sees at the shelters or the stores.

Seeing as how I'm away at college and out of the house most of the day, I currently don't have time to manage a little nugget running around; however, if I did, I'd probably have four by now. On that note, here is 6 reasons every girl needs a dog in their life.

1. The Endless Loving.

Everyone who has had a dog can agree they were put on this Earth to make life a little more bearable. No girl will need a man to be happy when all she has to do is walk through the door and see a little pup waiting to attack her with kisses. There is nothing better than coming home to a puppy that is always happy to see their human.

2. Cuddle Buddy.

No matter the size of your pup, you can bet they're always perfect at cuddling up at the end of the day. Some may be a little more hyper than others, so let them run around for a bit. I guarantee when you head off to bed, you'll hear the jingle of a collar following close behind.

3. Wingman/Wingwoman.

Need help landing a man? You'd be surprised at how much men actually fall head over heels for fluffy dogs! With the amount of attention my roommate's dog has gotten, it's safe to say they're great sidekicks in the dating department.

4. Vent Sessions.

When it's been a long day and you just want to get in bed and cry, your puppy will be there to lick the tears off your face (yes, my dogs have done this). They can tell when you're upset and they'll be there in the blink of an eye to wag their tail and make your night a little less stressful.

5. Never Alone.

As women, we go through highs and lows with our emotions. So when the day comes that you feel like there is no one there for you and the entire world is against you, have no fear! Your pup will be there to get you through it. You are their human, and they enjoy seeing you happy just as much as you enjoy having them around.

6. Constant Activity.

Even if you didn't feel like hitting the gym one day, getting a dog will force you to be more active. Dogs have more energy than we realize and even if they have to tug at your foot for hours just to go to the park, they will. Hey, at least you'll be in more shape!

So whether you just want to be a couch potato all day or go run a marathon, your dog will be more than willing to spend the day with you. Dogs are made of love, joy, and tiny miracles. So next time you stop by an animal shelter, consider the happiness both of you could possess by adopting. Heck, I might come home tomorrow with three new puppies (WATCH OUT PARENTS).

A Missouri State Student Refused To Let Accidentally Swiping Left Stop Him

He sent a mass email to every girl named Claudia at Missouri State.

Tinder. We all know how it works— you swipe left if you're not interested, you swipe right if you want to pursue a little further. Everyone has their own specific guidelines for swiping either direction, usually, such as dogs in the profile pictures (the most important), good looks, funny jokes in their bio, and so on.

Recently, a little misstep has caused quite the stir on Missouri State's campus, and now worldwide. Hayden Moll, a student on campus, had the great misfortune of accidentally swiping left on a certain girl's profile when he, in fact, meant to swipe right.

Most people would probably be pretty distraught, but they'd eventually just shrug and say "Oh well," and keep on scrolling through profiles. However, that was not the case with Hayden. He still knew her name, which was Claudia.

Hayden sent out a mass email to every single girl named Claudia at Missouri State University, a school of over 26,000 students total.


The girl received the email.

Watching it unfold seemed to be something of a modern-day Cinderella story, where Prince Charming, instead of trying a glass slipper on every woman's foot, sent out a mass email to a specific fraction of the entire student body because of a Tinder mistake.

Claudia has yet to publicly confirm or deny the events that followed the two crossing paths, such as whether or not Hayden shooting his shot on quite the ballsy level paid off for him. However, it's safe to say his reputation won't be forgotten anytime soon, so he has embraced it.

The tweet Claudia tweeted about Hayden's email has gone viral, resulting in over 22,000 retweets, 100,000 likes, and has been covered by numerous outlets from Total Frat Move to Catfish MTV's twitter to Barstool Sports.

Maybe if more guys took after Hayden's determination to shoot his shot, regardless of the outcome, more guys would find their own Tinderella and live happily ever after.

My Thank You Letter To Upward Bound

A thank you letter to the program that gave me so much.

Upward Bound is a nationally funded TRiO program. It began because of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 in response to the administration's war on poverty. Upward Bound has been around for 54 years. They give high school students a chance to learn about college. If Upward Bound wouldn't have done that for me, I have no idea where I would be today,

Here is a short history for you. I was a part of Upward Bound from the end of my freshman year to the end of my senior year of high school. I have been given the opportunity to do many great things with them. Also, I got to work for them after I graduated. I got to give back to the program that gave me so much. So here's a thank you letter to the program that changed my life.

Thank you for giving me a chance that I otherwise would never have. You opened your heart to me and accepted me with open arms. You gave me a chance to learn. It was a chance to learn about other people's beliefs, lives, hopes, and dreams. I learned so much about myself while I was there with you. I am a mentally stronger person, I am more socially aware, and I have become a better leader. I think more of others and care more deeply about them. I have become the best of friends with people that I would otherwise never have gotten to know.

Thank you to the teachers and the mentors that I had. Thank you, Darlene, for giving me the chance to learn and for giving me the love of learning. Thanks to that, I am where I am now. Thank you, Jacob, for giving me the chance for self-love. I am proud of who I am becoming because of you. Thank you, Sara, for giving me the love of writing and literature. You have made me open my eyes to the many amazing parts of English. Thank you, Ivy, for being a great friend and mentor. You have made me better than I was before I came to you. Thank you, Cortney, for giving me that competitive edge. I know that I can compete on any level because of you.

So here's my thank you letter. Upward Bound, you are a game-changer. You have blessed many and I hope you continue to do so.

Always and forever,

A Grateful Upward Bound Alum
