Dear Parents, Let Me Get A Bunny And I'll Never Ask For Anything Ever Again

I know I know, you've told me no a thousand times. But here I am, writing this article so that you could maybe, possibly, consider it.

Hi Mom, hi Dad!

I know I know, you've told me no a thousand times. You've given me the slow "no" head shake while giving me those eyes that say "don't ask again."

But here I am, writing this article so that you could maybe, possibly, consider it. As you already know, I really really want a Miniature Holland Lop bunny. I know that you both are going to need a lot of convincing, (especially you, Mom) so of course, I am prepared for any questions you might have.

Thank you Wikihow for your article "How to convince your parents to let you buy a bunny" for these great points I am going to touch on. To start off, here is a reminder of how cute my future bunny could look. Please keep this picture in mind as you read through this article.

I will now display my knowledge of these animals, and how I can provide them with the most excellent of cares. I am aware that I need to clean the bunny cage about every other day. This won't be a problem since I plan on taking the bunny out at least every night, therefore I can just take a few extra minutes to clean up any mess.

Fun fact: did you know that bunnies can be trained to use a litter box?

I am also aware that I will need to groom my bunny and trim his/her nails. From previous experiences with our dog, Lucky, I am sure that I will be able to do this on my own.

A concern that I know you both have is the fact that many people in the house have allergies. After doing some research, I am confident that by keeping my bunny well groomed and maintaining a clean cage, allergies will not be a problem. I have also thought that we can place the bunnies cage in the basement, that way it will be far from the kitchen and family area. Furthermore, since I will be completing my last year at college, the bunny will only be at home for a couple of weeks this first year.

I am also capable of buying everything the bunny needs on my own. I work very hard and am more than okay spending my earnings on a sweet bunny. The only thing I am asking for is your permission to possibly keep the bunny in your home if I move back in after college.

I know this is a big favor, which is why I have written this article. I want to emphasize one more time that I have done my research on how to take care and provide for this possible new family member, and am willing to negotiate if we need to. Thanks for reading this article, and let's chat!

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
