Seven Things Only Cat Lovers Understand

For those (not-so-crazy) cat ladies.

Seven Things Only Cat Lovers Understand

As Valentine's Day ends, we can all stop stressing and go back to being shameless not-so-lonely cat lovers. Cats, in my opinion, are some of the best pets to have around. They keep to themselves and are great to snuggle (only on their terms, though). Here's a list of things that only cat lovers understand, even if you're cat doesn't join you at college.

1. Fur...everywhere.

Like a dog, cats also tend to shed...a lot. No matter how many times you wash your clothes or hands, cat fur still seems to end up everywhere. Even once you return to school, cat hair still seems to be coming out of your clothes. However, it can be seen as a blessing if you have a very fluffy cat.

2. Cat lady stigma.

It's unfortunate that I can't talk about my cat without sounding like a crazy cat lady. In fact, no one can talk about their cat without sounding crazy. It's a little unconventional for your cat to be your number-one best friend but if a dog can be man's best friend, cats (and diamonds) can be a girl's best friend. No judgment there.

3. Having no idea what kind of cat you have.

Unlike dogs, cats oftentimes don't have a very distinct look. A lot of cats end up looking alike and no one really knows cat breeds. So, when you say you have a cat, you don't describe what kind of cat it is. Most of the time, you end up just using the colors of her fur. Regardless, she's super cute anyway.

4. Dog people are always arguing with you.

It's no secret that most people prefer dogs over cats and most of those people think they're right. They assume your cat is mean, evil, and shows no compassion. You may even be heavily criticized for having a cat. However, you know that even if you're cat is evil, she still loves you regardless and no one will understand the bond you two share.

5. You can't walk your cat.

Well you's just a little different. One of the downsides of only having a cat is you can't take them for long relaxing walks. Cats aren't meant for that sort of activity and you don't want to be that person that walks their cat.

6. Laser pointers are the best thing ever.

7. You understand why cats are the superior pet.

Even though your cat can't fetch and you can't take her for walks, you know she's the best companion. She's tiny, loving, and a lot less destructive than a puppy. At the end of the day, you wouldn't trade your cat or your cat lady tendencies for the world.

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.

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.
