To My Beloved Dog, I Will Always Love You

It is the feeling of losing your best friend and a piece of your family.

To My Beloved Dog, I Will Always Love You
Makalah Hardy

Bringing Bella, my family's pit bull, home almost eleven years ago was one of the best days ever. From the moment my family set our eyes on that dog, we knew she was going to be special. Almost eleven years later, she's gone. From the last time I saw her, I loved that cute pit face that most people would have been scared of. Seeing the pain in her eyes, I knew she was due to leave this world, but facing that fact has been extremely hard.

The moment I received the text about the passing of Bella, I was broken.

This dog has been in my life for as long as I can remember.

From the day we brought her home to the last time I saw her, she has always been such a light in my families life. Always has been the most behaved dog ever, more behaved than the other three pups in our house. Bella went through all of the change our family went through in the past years, from moving houses to adding new puppy family members. Bella has always been with us for it all and now we have to go on without her.

After being away from home for college and going home on breaks and always being greeted by her cute face and wagging tail was always a happy moment but there will be no welcome home from her any longer. No morning cuddles when she wakes up and no car rides through fast food drive-thrus. I can't seem to face the fact that she is gone and going home will never be the same.

Losing Bella was not just losing a pet, it was losing a best friend and a family member.

Losing her was one of the hardest things I have ever done. A life without Bella never seemed possible. Bella was always supposed to live forever but as she got older, reality set in. I always knew Bella was getting old and pass away but it was never supposed to be this soon. She was supposed to have years left, not just a week.

Bella made our house a home, simply by being there. She completed the family and always made everyone so happy. She was simply the BEST dog ever and will forever hold a place in my heart.

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.
