An Open Letter To My Dog

"Sometimes I feel like I do not even deserve such a kind soul like yourself."

An Open Letter To My Dog
Liz Martinez

To my amazing dog Taylor,

Humans always seem to be seeking companionship. We look for someone to love and for someone to love us too. We look for someone or something to hold our hands during the hard times and to celebrate the good times. We want our hearts to be filled and I am so lucky to have you to do just that.

Dogs are so pure and selfless, sometimes I feel like I do not even deserve such a kind soul like yourself. It seems like there is nothing I could do wrong through your eyes. Even when everyone seems to be against me and I am my own worst enemy, you hold me to the highest standard and keep my head above water. Even when I feel abandoned and misunderstood, you heal my heart and remind me I am not alone. All this is done by you, a dog. You are greater than 99 percent of people I know.

I want the days you spend on this earth to be ones filled with love. Ones where you never have to wonder where your next meal will come from, if you will ever know happiness, or if you are loved. I hope I have done those hopes proud for you since you do so much for me.

My heart has bled and been broken more times than I can count. You always seem to know when I need extra comfort from you, and you never fail to provide that support. You have patched me up and put me back together countless of times, I have no idea how I ever put on a brave face before you came along. Thank you for that.

I will forever be thankful for all the time we have spent together. How we sleep together every night. How we find moments in a busy, stressful week to play and laugh. How we move together like magnets for no reason in particular. I can not believe how blessed I am to spend a part of my lifetime with you, I can only hope that you feel the same way.

To my amazing dog Taylor, you are my world. I love you.

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.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

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.

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.
