10 Reasons My Dog Is A Feminist

10 Reasons My Dog Is A Feminist
Colleen Daly

Dogs are a gift that we, humans, do not deserve. They are man's, and woman's, best friend and they love us both equally. A lot of people seem to think that feminist is women hating men or wanting to be better than men. Well, that is not the case, at least in my definition of the word. So wouldn't that mean everyone is a feminist? I know I am and my dog most certainly is too. Why? Well, let me tell you.

1. She wears pink 

Pink isn't just for girls, but we can proudly wear it without it being a gender norm.

2. She's protective

She rightfully guards her people even if the threat isn't yet known, aka a deer in the back yard or the ups man dropping off a package. But hey, she's still got your back.

3. She doesn't like being pushed around

That other dog stiffing her butt didn't ask if he could and she is not happy about it.

4. She gets excited about the little victories

We're going for a walk? YAY. I get a cookie? YAY. Basic human rights? YAY.

5. Everyone's the same to her

She's not picky about where her belly scratches come from.

6. She loves people

She might bark when you first walk through the door but she warms up pretty quickly if you prove you can be trusted.

7. She's a good listener

Ears perked up and head tilted to the side? You can discuss anything with her, no judgement.

8. She knows her place

And that is not in the kitchen... unless there's a chance that food will be dropped on the floor while cooking dinner.

9. She's supportive

Always down for a cuddle session when you need one.

10. She senses wrong doing

Something's not right? She knows it and so do you.

Still confused? It's not that difficult. My dog is a feminist. That's it.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
