When Your Dog Is Your True Bestfriend

Because our four-legged babies are just as important.

When Your Dog Is Your True Bestfriend
Eliza Sawyers

The cliche saying is that diamonds are a girl's best friend. I don't know about you, but I'm not a huge fan of diamonds. Oh sure, one day I'd love to have a beautiful engagement ring, but that day isn't today. I would much rather slumber with my four-legged besties under a blanket than wear thousands of dollars around my neck.

1. Endless Love

Dogs are known for loving their owners more than themselves. Let's be honest, where else could you find that kind of affection? They have very kind hearts and revolve their whole world around you! Well...you and the occasional squirrel. The kisses and snuggles are just an extra bonus.

2. Dieting Motivators

You and your little buddy can inspire each other to work out and maintain diets. You should both probably stay away from those cupcakes. If they can't eat sweets, why should you? But hey, if you both want to stop for a treat after that walk around the neighborhood, no one is judging you.

3. Always Welcome

Who else would be so excited to see you when you first walk through the door? If you ever come home feeling upset or discouraged, your buddy will be sure to turn your mood around.

4. Twinning

Selfies are never an issue, unless your pet is playing or won't stand still long enough. But perfecting those perfect doggy pictures are more Facebook worthy than many pictures people post. They are always looking their best, even with #allnatural and #nofilter. I mean, dogs are already cute enough.

Plus, if you're lucky, he may be able to go fetch the selfie stick.

5. Good Mornings

You'll never have to worry about oversleeping from hitting SNOOZE repeatedly. As you have your very own enforcing alarm who makes sure you are out of bed, bright and early. Oh, it's your day off? Well that's okay, that means more time to take your furry friend on a walk and to go play. Just because you want to sleep in doesn't mean he's going to let you.

6. No Boundaries

Who needs a boo when you have a dog? They are your number one snuggle buddy, whether its while watching a movie, a celebratory hug, a shoulder to cry on, or just laying in bed. (Just imagine: If you had 20 dogs, you could be submersed in a pile of dogs. That's my life goal.)

7. Realizing Your Dog is Literally YOU

Do you ever sit back and ponder why your dog has certain mannerisms? It's all because of you, human! You two are drawn to each other due to your similar personalities.

If you're anything like me, you probably wish your pup spoke English. Because if they did, I'd be perfectly content with never socializing with other human beings ever again.

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.
