7 Reasons Cats are My Spirit Animal

7 Reasons Cats are My Spirit Animal

By no means am I a "cat person". Never have been, never will be. I'm definitely a "dog person" and have never actually been fond of cats. However, I find that I relate to them in several weird ways. I don't particularly think this is a good thing, but here's seven reasons that cats are secretly my spirit animal.

1. I love to sleep.

It's said that cats sleep 70% of their lives. To say that I sleep THAT much would be a bit of an overstatement, but I love to sprawl out and snooze just as much as your average kitty.

2. I don't like being held.

Cats DON'T snuggle. That's one of the biggest reasons I don't like them and another common characteristic we share. Most of my loved ones know I am a less than affectionate person and unless I'm in the mood, please don't come over to me and try to snuggle up. You're probably just going to bug me and invade my personal space.

3. I'm rather uncoordinated.

I'd like to call myself athletically challenged. Cats are supposed to be graceful, but sometimes they try to pull out the cool tricks and end up looking like this.

4. I love to eat.

I mean, who doesn't?

5. I don't like water.

Don't get me wrong I love a good, hot shower or even a cold one during the summer, but I gotta say there's nothing worse than getting soaked when you least expect it. Heavy, cold clothes and wet dripping hair are not my thing. Poor cats don't even get to pick when they bathe either, they're just thrown in the tub. Sounds awful.

6. I'm easily amused.

You know how people buy those lasers that they point all over the floor and the cat goes crazy chasing it? Me. Sometimes I even wish I could be a cat so I could experience the fun of chasing that little red light around (JK. Maybe.).

7. I'll purr if I like you.

LOL okay, I don't quite mean it like that, but what I'm saying is it's easy to tell if a cat likes you. They'll purr, rub against against your leg, etc. I make sure to let people know that I like (love) them whether it's my family, friends or whoever. If I ever come up to you and start purring, call someone. Something's wrong.

There you go. Seven reasons my soul is half-human, half-cat. Although I swear I'm not as miserable as your average house cat. Just as moody, maybe.

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.
