10 Reasons Dogs Are 110% Better Than People

This should be obvious, but here's a few reasons just in case you didn't know.


I could add a million more, but here's 10 to get you started.

1. Their loyalty NEVER fails 

Humans aren't always loyal, which is to be expected because we're selfish by nature. Dogs have no duty other than to their owners, and this is the purest loyalty that exists in our world.

2. They're way less expensive to raise than real children 

It's estimated that it costs $200,000 to raise a human child over 18 years, so it's obvious that raising a dog would be much more affordable. Plus, they rarely talk back and misbehave.

3. They're protective 

Dogs have been known to be some of the fiercest protectors of their owners, even if they're as small as a chihuaha and it's only in their heads. Their loyalty goes so far that they would give up their lives to protect their owners.

4. They love fiercely 

Dogs will always be there when you need a friend, and their love is quite possibly the purest type of love that exists (apart from Jesus, thanks for that!)

5. They give the best cuddles 

Growing up, I always had a dog to cuddle with whenever I was sad or simply needed a friend.

6. They are always down for a good road trip 

Dogs are always down to hop in the passenger's seat and ride along for hours at a time.

7. Dogs aren't picky 

They will eat pretty much anything you feed them, making them both affordable and enjoyable to raise.

8. Dogs can be used for therapy with just their presence 

That alone is the only reason you need.

9. Dogs are adorable 

Dog cute is just a different kind of cute. Frankly, they're irresistable.

10. Dogs can be taught to do adorable tricks 

Dogs will roll over, shake your hand and sit on command.

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.
