Sweet, quite and loving animals, what more could a person want?

15 Reasons Why Cats Are Sometimes Better Company Than Humans
Tara McCally

Author Terry Pratchett once said, "In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this."

Around one-third of households in the United States have a cat, so clearly they are easily one of the best pets you could get. And why not? They're loving, low-maintenance and don't forget the cuteness factor which just adds to everything that they do.

Not only that but they can teach responsibility and have health benefits. They might possibly just be better company than humans. (Of course, that all depends on who you ask ;))

1. They supply you with never ending, unconditional love.

No matter what a human doesn't always do that.

2. They are cute.

I mean have you ever seen an ugly cat? Even if you have, chances are that its so ugly that its cute.

3. They are smart.

They know things and can sense when something is wrong. Here's a link for a few cats that did just that.

4. Their purring can be soothing.

It can help a person who is stressed, nervous or anxious feel less so.

5. Cats are quiet.

Unless of course they want something, then they can be quite loud. But other than that they are fairly quiet.

6. They don't need much.

Just for you to love them as much as they love you.

7. They don't make you feel guilty for leaving them.

I mean mine certainly does (at least for the first few days after i'm back), but after they are yours again. In many cases though, if its just for the day, they are happy to have the house to themselves because they can sleep all day.

8. They can reduce stress.

Name a human that can do that for you, all the time. Petting a cat also releases endorphins into the brain, which makes you happier.

9.  They won't question your choices.

Looking at you Aunt Karen.

10. They're funny. (and usually don't know that they're being laughed at)

I mean come on, have you seen all those funny cat videos all over the internet?

11.  You can train them.


It may be hard but training a human is even harder.

12. They have several health benefits.

I mean seriously, do you know any human that has health benefits for another human? Maybe as SO, but not all the time.

13. They don't judge you.

At all, they love you for you.

14. They can help you live longer.

Just by having them.

15. They are independent.

The same can not be said for some grown up humans.

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.
