They Give Kisses Instead Of Heartbreaks, And 5 Other Reasons I Keep Choosing Dogs Over Relationships
Rachel Mount

Okay so originally I was like yeah dogs are relatable, I would easily choose another puppy from the shelter over a man who could snap my heart in half. But then, I started thinking about how I would honestly choose basically any animal over starting a new relationship right now.

Why? I see it as more of, why not?

There's a reason all sane humans have their day completely changed when they come in contact with a little fluffer, even if it's half a mile away. Not to mention that I follow so many dog accounts, yet no hot guy IGs. Canceled!

1. Dogs can't talk, duh

Yeah so they bark, but they can't talk back. Am I the only one that's come up with an entire language for my dog? Like her certain barks, I'm all oh Sasha doesn't want to be in the shade anymore. I'm not crazy I swear.

2. The best cuddlers out there

First problem, not all guys like a good cuddle. Hell, I don't like it half the time. I need my space too man. But when it comes to dogs? All bets off. And no matter the dog, it somehow fits perfectly in your arms.

3. Shopping for them is so fun

I'd more likely need a leash to bring a guy shopping then to get my dog to follow me around the store. One of my favorite moments is throwing my pup her newest toy, or opening a new bag of dog treats.

4. You make tons of friends

There's not one dog that will pass me by where I don't want to drop everything I'm doing and pet him/her. I'm also so much more apt to start a conversation with someone who has a dog. Ya know, cause dog people are great people.

5. An instant happiness boost

When I come home, and my dog runs up to me all excited (even though it's been like, 15 minutes), my heart grows 10 sizes.

6. Endless love

Ever been attacked by licks and kisses and maintained a bad mood? Me either.

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.
