Shout Out To All The Missouri State Campus Cats

Campus kitties, you make us feel whole again

Shout Out To All The Missouri State Campus Cats
Morgan George

Dear Campus Cats,

College is hard. We are away from our loyal companions that we have grown up with. We are away from our families and we are into some of the toughest times of our lives to date and we need some animal love and there you are. You are always hiding around by the bushes at the Strong Hall or on a bench under a tree, and if we are lucky, you will even bring your babies to see us too.

Campus cats we appreciate you. We love you. We worship you. You give us the companionship that we have been missing while at school and you always pop up when we least expect you to. Seeing you run across campus can make our day just because we saw you. Campus cats, you are the best way to spend those few short minutes between class or the best way to procrastinate studying.

Thank you for being so kind and sweet despite the cards that life has given you. Thank you for accepting all of our pets and treats of whatever bit of sandwich we brought for lunch that day. You are always there for us, sometimes in the same spot every day without fail. Knowing that we can always find you at your favorite campus spot is a relief on a tough day.

You bring us so much comfort. How you are able to show all of us equal, unconditional love is a mystery to me. You make every person feel like you are their own cat and we have become so personally invested in you.

Campus cats, you are a vital part to the college experience. You can cure sadness, loneliness, and stress all in a five minute petting session. Your purrs bring memories of our grandmas cat that we harassed growing up or of our neighborhood cat that we so dearly miss. You make us feel at home and loved, campus cats, and we cannot thank you enough for that.

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.
