6 Things Only People Who Hate Cats Will Understand

Ah, the age-old dog-versus-cat debate. This debate ruins friendships, splits up families, and ends relationships. Most people I know are either complete dog-lovers or complete cat-lovers. Me? I'm a dog lover, 100 percent. Here's six things that only someone who hates cats will understand.

1. You've never understood why cats are so lovable.

Seriously? Every cat I've attempted to pet has hissed at me and ran away. I've given up on their love.

2. Their claws.

Holy crap. Those things hurt. Some dogs have scratchy nails, but dog nails pale in comparison to the long claws that cats can so easily tear your leg apart with.

3. Two words: cat litter.

Gross! Dogs are much more hygienic. You're able to put them on a leash, let them walk around outside and do their business. Cats just stink up your entire house.

4. You can't seem to wrap your mind around how cats don't show any affection.

When I come home, my dogs are wagging their tails and run up to greet me. Meanwhile, cats couldn't care less. Thanks for the warm welcome!

5. You cringe every time you see a "cute" cat video online.

This especially relates if your friends share these cat videos on each other's Facebook walls. Why are people so obsessed with them?!

6. Proven fact: cats are mean.

Have you ever seen a cat smile? Nope, didn't think so. The darn things just look angry all the time!

At least I'll never be a crazy cat lady...

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
