Because they are so cute

How To Bring A Kitten (Or Two) Home From College For The Holidays
Brytni Leasure

Part of growing up is making spontaneous decisions based on our "wants" and not necessarily our "needs." College is fun, but wouldn't it be even more fun if you had a fluffy, cuddly, animal to enjoy it with? Something you can take "in-between class" naps with. Something you can just love and hold whenever you are stressing over exams, or just because it makes you happy.

I have the solution. Get a kitten, or two. I'm talking kittens, not full grown cats. It's more fun to raise the kitten yourself, trust me.

If you decide to take my advice and get a kitten (do it, because everyone else is) then you are probably worried about breaking it to your parents when you bring it home for the holidays (unless you have cool parents who love pets). But for those of us who don't, here is a guide to help you with the process of bringing your cute kitten pet home for the holidays.

1) Get a kitten (obviously).

2) Text your parent these exact words:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

The trick with this message is to not immediately come out saying you have a cat but imply it with the cat emoji.

3) Depending on the parent, the response time can be intimidating. You will probably get a nasty message that is probably meant to be interpreted in a yelling tone. If that happens, commence to the fourth step to this guide.

4) They said no. So if that happens, do what every 18-22 year old would do... Do it anyway.

5) Pack your stuff up and the kitten, and show up to your house. No one can say anything because it's already there. You might get some mean comments, but they will warm up once they see how cute the kitten is.

6) Commence kitten cuddles every night for a month. Also prepare for many snapchats on your story of them that your friends will probably get annoyed of. But who cares?

So there you have it. Bringing a pet home for the holidays doesn't have to be so intimidating. Just do it. After all, it is a kitten, and they are so darn cute. That's what matters.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
