Cats Are The Best College Companions, Paws Down

Because we all need that special feline in our life.

Cats Are The Best College Companions, Paws Down
Alyse Campbell

If you are cat person like I am, you probably want a special feline in your life. Having a cat in college is like having a personal study buddy and a best friend rolled into one. Your friends will love to come over to your place to see you (or your cat, let's be honest) and you will always have a cute subject for your social media posts.

Cats are there for you during the good times and the bad, and they are happy to add more to your life in ways that you couldn't have imagined.

Here are just some of the many reasons why cats are a college student's perfect companion, as told from my favorite feline's perspective.

1. They're great at helping you study

"Oh were you trying to study? Let me help you out. Just pet me and you'll ace this test!"

2. They keep you from getting distracted

"Oh, you were trying to watch Netflix? I thought this computer was my napping spot."

3. They will wake you up in the morning

"Meow! Think you are going to miss your 9 a.m.? I think not! Let me sit on you just to make sure."

4. They support you emotionally

"We can both pretend that the final didn't just happen and hide our tears."

5. They make everyday things exciting

"Why not share all parts of your life with me? I'm not in the way at all!"

6. They encourage (productive) laziness

"I love you human, so you can't move until I decide I want to get up. You are one of the chosen ones."

7. And finally, they are always there for you

No matter where you go or what you're going through, a cat will be the companion that will always find new ways to become involved in all aspects of your life (in the most creative ways) and will be the best snuggle buddy. They are one of the easiest creatures to love and care for, and they will always give something back to you in return.

Cats may seem reserved and selective at first, but once you find a way to their heart, they will be a part of yours forever.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
