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.

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
