8 Reasons Pets Are Better Than People

Whether it's cats, dogs, or horses, pets will always beat out our human counterparts.

8 Reasons Pets Are Better Than People
Ashley Dickerson

Throughout my life, I have seen again and again why my pets are better than people. I'm here to share my findings because I'm sure I'm not the first to think this.

1. They are always happy to see you


It doesn't matter if you've been gone five minutes or five days, your pets are always excited to see you come home. Not only is it absolutely adorable, but it's a real confidence booster to see that someone likes you enough to get that excited by your appearance!

2. They're loyal


Pets don't cheat. Pets don't lie. Pets don't talk crap about you behind your back. They may chew up your shoes or scratch your furniture, but the guilt on their faces afterwards is enough to know they don't mean it.

3. They won't tell your secrets

Pets are the best confidants because they will never tell your secrets. That may be because they can't, but it's still good reassurance knowing you can spill your guts to your pets and it will never leave the room.

4. Cuddling a pet is infinitely better than cuddling a human

Yep, this is me and one of my babies

Pets are soft and furry and have a lot more cushion than humans. Cuddling with my cats is so much cozier than cuddling with my boyfriend. (oops)

5. They don’t cause drama

You will never find a friend/significant other that doesn’t cause/bring SOME type of drama in your life. You can easily find pets that don’t/can’t add any extra drama to your life.

6. They’re easy to read

Ashley Dickerson

If my cat is angry/uncomfortable, she’ll bite me. If my dog is happy/excited, he’ll wag his tail. There’s no hiding their emotions like humans do, making it infinitely easier to give them what they need.

7. You can lock them in your room without getting charged for kidnapping

Ashley Dickerson

If I want to spend time with my pets, they don’t really have a choice. All I have to do is lock them in my room and they’ll be stuck with me. If I do that to my boyfriend it would be “inappropriate” and “illegal”.

I mean, come on. No person can be as cute as my pets, sorry.

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.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
