9 Things You Know To Be True If Your Dog Is The Best Thing To Come Home To For Break

Sorry Mom and Dad and other human friends.

9 Things You Know To Be True If Your Dog Is The Best Thing To Come Home To For Break
Reilly Marzen

It's no secret that dogs are one of the greatest gifts to humankind. They're our best friends who love us unconditionally. When we go away to school, sometimes dogs are our hardest goodbyes. To make things worse, we can't talk to our pups on the phone like we can with our human friends and family. That's what makes it so much more special when we can finally come home and see our loyal fluffy friends in real life. Sometimes, there's nothing better.

1. There is nothing quite like seeing your dog's face light up when you first walk in the door.


The joy on your dog's face as he or she runs to greet you when you walk in the door is like nothing else. They are just so so so excited to see you, and it truly makes you feel so special and loved.

2. You don't even mind them slobbering all over you


My dog specifically is a big fan of giving kisses. As soon as I get home, he will not stop licking me because he just wants to show me how excited he is to see me. After a while, it will get annoying, but at first, it's just a reminder that he loves me.

3. The nice coat of dog hair all over you doesn't bother you either


I have a golden retriever, and he SHEDS. I can usually never wear clothing or any fleece material because sooner or later, I'll be wearing a nice coat of fur. But when I first get home, that layer of blonde dog hair covering my clothes doesn't bother me one bit. I mean, lint rollers exist for a reason, right?

4. Taking them for walks doesn't seem like a chore anymore


I'll admit, I'm not a fan of taking my dog for a walk too often. But when I get home, it doesn't seem like a job. Instead, it's quality time that I get to spend with my favorite pupper.

5. You don't mind them constantly bothering you to pet them and show them attention


Sometimes, my dog will not ever leave me alone. He'll paw at me while I'm trying to eat or watch TV or lick me when I'm trying to get work done. Occasionally, it annoys me when I'm trying to concentrate or get something done, but when I come home from school, I cannot get enough attention from my dog. Maybe I'm just as needy as he is.

6. Snuggling with them while they take up 3/4 of the bed is the best thing ever


Dogs are the biggest bed hogs, but that's why we love them. It's common knowledge that as humans, we come second to our fluffy best friends, so we must not disturb them when they take up almost the entire bed. But that's okay; we just get closer snuggles.

7. They become your favorite passenger when driving around


I know this usually doesn't apply to all dogs, but I know that mine absolutely loves traveling in the car. And I love to travel with him; he makes for a great driving companion. When I'm home, I find any excuse to take my dog with me when I drive places.

8. You're more likely to sneak them some people food more often


Guilty! I'm not going to lie, I always sneak my dog some food or give him my leftovers after dinner. Dogs do a lot for us, so they deserve some extra treats.

9. You can't ever stop telling them how cute they are because they truly are the best friend you could ever have. 


Dogs are truly a blessing, and I swear they get cuter each time you see them. If only pups could read so they could know how much we appreciate them.

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.
