The Most Dangerous Breed

Oh wait, there isn't one.

The Most Dangerous Breed
Personal

When I decided to get a puppy, I took the breed into consideration. I knew I wanted a short-haired dog to prevent so much shedding, one who would be fine to stay in a crate while I went to class/work/the gym/etc, and one who would be great and sociable with other people. Then, I met my friend's dog. He was a Blue Pit, and he was one of the most sweetest and loving dogs I had ever met. I immediately made up my mind. My first thought was to get a rescue pit, so of course I checked my local shelters. Then, I found him. Once I saw him, I knew he was going to be my best friend.

Upon the arrival of my new pup, I never realized the criticism I would receive for deciding on a Pit Bull. It came with a lot of, "Be careful, you know Pits can be dangerous." And, "I hope he doesn't turn on you." At first I was only amused at the ignorance. However, it eventually got real old, real fast. How can people make so many assumptions on a particular breed just because of a few bad apples? It's like saying all police men are crooked or all Alabamians marry their cousins: It's a stereotype.

These are the real dangers of having a Pit Bull:

1.They Will Lick You to Death

My Pit has the most viscous tongue in all the land. He will give you kisses anytime, any place, anywhere. It's even worse when his breath is stinky!

2. They Will Smother You

Opie does this weird thing where he wants to lay on top of my head. I don't know if it's his way of feeling close or if he is trying to suffocate me... Probably suffocate me... he is a deadly animal, after all.

3. You No Longer Have Privacy

I said goodbye to private bathroom breaks the moment I got my dog. I also recently discovered that I must shut my bathroom door when taking showers because he insists on jumping in with me!

4. They Will Eat Anything (Even Their Humans, If They're Hungry Enough)

My dog is in the phase where he literally eats anything. I even caught him eating a dead bird. I have to be careful though, because I realize that he is so dangerous he may decide to eat me!

5. Their Tails Are Like That of a Stegosaurus

His viscous tail can be used as a deadly weapon. Its strong force is so powerful that it can knock me out cold.

6. They May Jump on You with Excitement

Although I am trying to break him of this habit, my Pit gets so excited at times that he jumps on me when he gets excited. Or is it because he wants to rip me apart..?

7. The Gas They Let Off Could Evacuate a Building

I have never smelled something so foul as the smell of my dog's gas. It is strong enough to make me pause my Netflix show in order to run away, so that's when you know it's bad.

8. They Will Chew Up Everything You Own

A countless number of shoes and bras have fallen victim to my dog's razor sharp teeth, but then again it may be him practicing on his first human victim.

9. Their Eyes Could Kill

My dog had the brightest blue eyes for the first few months, and they are beginning to change to a beautiful hazel color. When he gives you the "puppy dog stare" it will literally tear your heart in two.

10. Their Slobber Could Fill a Bath Tub

I don't know what it is, but my dog drools more than any dog I know. Sometimes when we're cuddling, he will leave a huge wet mark on my clothes... it's definitely not flattering.

11. They Will Love You Unconditionally

More than anything though, the most dangerous part about owning a Pit Bull is their unconditional love. But wait, isn't that just like any other breed of dog?

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.

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.

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.
