To My Dog, Who Was Gone Too Soon, I Hope You're Doing Everything You Love In Doggy Heaven
Abby Sweeney

To my dog, who was gone too soon.

You were only with us for four years, and I wish we could have had longer together. You weren't just my dog, but my birthday twin, my friend, my partner in crime, my everything. Thank you, for just being you. Thank you for being the nicest dog I had ever met. For being the goofiest dog. Thank you for making me laugh until I cried. For always knowing when I was upset and just being there.

Even on the day you went to heaven, you knew I was sad and came to sit next to me. In the two years that we had you and our other dog Bonnie, thank you for helping her enjoy her last couple of years with us.

I wish I could have spent more time with you. I wish we could have gone on more walks together. I wish we could have gone on more adventures. I wish we could have spent more birthdays together. I wish I could've thrown the beat up old soccer ball that you loved so much for you one last time. I wish I could see you run around the yard one last time. I wish I could drive around with you as my co-pilot again. I wish I could take you to Rita's or Starbucks to get a pup cup or puppuccino again.

I miss coming home and seeing you at the door. I miss hearing your paws against the hardwood floor. I miss throwing your toys for you. I miss hearing your bark when someone was at the door. I miss seeing your tail wag 100 miles per hour. I miss seeing you come in from outside. I miss seeing you sitting in the shade when I looked out the window. I miss the little white furs by your nose. I miss switching the bandana you wore every so often. I miss introducing you to new people. I miss knowing you were right around the corner.

I miss you.

Now that you are in heaven, and it is a better place for you, I hope you are playing with all of the other dogs. I hope you are doing everything you love, which is too long of a list to start.

I hope we gave you the best time on earth in the four short years we had you because you gave me the best time. I miss you.

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.

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.
