Dear Humans, You Are Not The Only Ones On This Planet

A plea to people to consider making a change and remember that we share this planet.

Dear Humans, You Are Not The Only Ones On This Planet

Dear Humans,

I wasn't aware that I had to remind you, but it has come to my attention that you've forgotten there are other creatures, on what this could once be called, beautiful planet. You call yourselves the top of the food chain, yet, you're not smart enough to realize you're destroying not only your home, but ours as well. You have the resources to fix this, but refuse to change.

Why I ask? Are we not worth saving? Do you really not care about future generations? Or are you just that close-minded and selfish? According to National Geographic, before humans evolved, less than one species per million years went extinct annually, but now it's up to 1,000 because of you people.

You have destroyed our homes to build your own.

You have places dedicated to your waste, yet you still throw and litter it where we try to live.

You abuse us and lock us up in tiny cages, labs, and circuses for your own amusement.

You test us with no mind to our well being, only caring about yours. There are other options that include not harming us, but you're too lazy to look or support those products and choose to buy from the big corporate brands that torture us on the daily.

Some of you even claim to love creatures like us, but still buy from big stores that get their animals from places that over bread their pets and have no care if it ends up killing or seriously harming the animal ( e.g. places like puppy mills).

The sad part is, you still rely on us for food, entertainment, help, and scientific purposes, but choose to treat us like the scum under your feet. We're not even treated like second- or even third-class citizens, no, were just props and objects in your eyes. If we had the option, we'd take a stand and refuse to aid you anymore, but we don't even have that choice. If we refuse, we're forced or even harmed or killed. We have no voice in what once to be our world.

Now, you've taken over and we have no option, but to just watch and see the ruins under your control. So we beg, from all the other creatures on this planet, please make a change humans. We're relying on you now.

Yours truly,

the other creatures on this planet

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.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
