Why You Should Date A Girl Who's Shown Livestock

Why You Should Date A Girl Who's Shown Livestock

In case you need 8 more reasons why she's perfect.

Hopefully, you already know just how special your animal-showing-boot-wearing-bling-loving beauty truly is, but just in case here are some more reasons you should date the girl who showed livestock.

1. She's not afraid to get dirty.

Showing livestock isn't all glitz and glam. Honestly, its more dirty boots and animal poop than anything. She isn't scared to get a little dirt under her fingernails, chances are it's not the worst thing that has.

2. She's no stranger to hard work.

To get the banner you have to put in the time and the work first. Nothing good comes to those who wait, and trust me, she doesn't wait.

3. She sure can clean up nice.

Especially if your girl is a showmanship queen. After all, Momma did always say the judges notice everything.

4. She knows how to be gentle and compassionate.

This is a girl who has or does still work with animals very closely. Working with a creature who can't talk to you to tell you what they need or how they're feeling teaches you a lot. A girl who's shown livestock knows when to have a gentle touch and a soothing tongue.

5. She understands the value of a dollar.

Showing livestock is no cheap hobby. Between feed and vet bills or hoping the number the auctioneer is shouting will keep climbing a livestock girl appreciates every penny.

6. She can handle early mornings.

She might not like it, she might not be pleasant til her second or even third cup of coffee, but girls who've shown have seen their fair share of early mornings. Whether it was loading up to trailer out by 4 a.m., waking up every few hours to check on newborns, or being in the barn and having already washed before the sun rises, she's got this morning thing down. Kinda.

7. She's patient and can stay calm under pressure.

Alright, shes in the very first heat of barrows and the very last heat of gilts. Well, then she waits. In the middle of the final drive and that crazy lamb just won't brace. By the look on her face, you'd never know how frustrated she was.

8. She's humble, she's poised, and she's downright a total catch.

After years in the ring, she's learned to win humbly, hold her head high in defeat and still shake the winners hand and you'll never see her happier than she is when one of her friends or loved ones gets that champion slap. What more could you possibly want?

If you weren't sold before, you are now. Personally, I think any man would be lucky to have a woman in his life who's spent most of hers in the show ring. If you're really lucky, you'll win a spot in the final drive of her life, right next to her favorite animal.

Getting Straight A's In College Is Not Worth Failing Your Mental Health

A's are nice, but you are more than a letter.


The idea of getting an A on every paper, every exam, every assignment, seems great. It can be known as a reassurance of our hard work and dedication to our 4+ classes we attend every single day.

Losing sleep, skipping meals, forgetting to drink water, skipping out on time with friends and family; these are the things that can occur when your letter of an A is what you are living for.

You are worth more than the grade letter, or the GPA number on your transcript.

Listen, don't get me wrong, getting A's and B's definitely is something to feel accomplished for. It is the approval that you did it, you completed your class, and your hard work paid off.

But honey, get some sleep.

Don't lose yourself, don't forget who you are. Grades are important, but the true measurement of self-worth and accomplishment is that you tried your best.

Trying your best, and working hard for your goals is something that is A-worthy.

Reserve time for yourself, for your sanity, your health, your mental health.

At the end of the day, grades might look nice on a piece of paper, but who you are and how you represent yourself can be even more honorable.

Martha McSally Could Still End Up In The Senate

Yep, you read that right. Martha McSally, who lost the senate race a month ago, could still end up in the U.S. Senate next to her former opponent, Kyrsten Sinema.


Martha McSally was the Republican nominee for Senate during the 2018 midterms in Arizona. She lost to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema by roughly 55,900 votes. But many are speculating that McSally could still end up representing Arizona in the U.S. Senate. Jon Kyl, who was tapped to replace former Senator John McCain after his death said he will not stay in the Senate after this session ends. McCain's term doesn't end until 2022, but Kyl has remained adamant that he will not serve past this year. This leads to the question of who will replace him next year. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has the power to appoint Kyl's replacement if he decides to leave at the end of this session. Several think McSally will be the name he chooses. McSally would have a tough road ahead. It could be easier for her to win elections because she would be considered the incumbent.

State law requires that the Governor appoint someone of the same political party as the late senator. That would mean a Republican would have to be appointed, causing speculation that McSally would be that person. If appointed, she would have a tough road ahead of her. There would be a special election in 2020 to fill McCain's term, and then another election in 2022 to start a new term. All of this comes just weeks after Sinema defeated her in the Senate election. Most think that McSally is the front-runner for the seat.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is lobbying hard to get her in the Senate. Other possible situations could arise such as Governor Ducey appointing himself to fill the seat. This one seems unlikely, however, considering if he does appoint himself, the next person to take the governorship would be Secretary of State-elect, Katie Hobbs, who is a Democrat. McSally is the strong front-runner for the seat and could end up next to her former opponent. We'll have to see how it plays out in the end, and we will certainly know who will or will not be filling this seat within the next few weeks.
