One Thing We Can Collectively Agree On: Dogs Are Better Than People
AKC

In a time of disagreement, I think there is one thing we can all collectively agree on: animal abuse is NOT OK. Recently, there was a TMZ video released from the set of A Dog's Purpose. (If you have not already seen it, please take the time to watch it now.) In the one minute clip, you can see a trainer forcing a dog into rough waters in order to get footage for a scene. As a fellow dog lover and owner, the video is almost unbearable to watch. How could anyone harm God's most precious and loving creatures?

In case anyone needs to be reminded, here are a few reasons why dogs may be the best thing to happen to humankind since sliced bread.

1. They are ALWAYS excited to see you

Whether you have been away for 10 minutes or 10 weeks, they will still act like they just won the lottery.

2. They are great listeners

Your dog is the boyfriend you've always wanted. They listen without judgment, will never talk back, and can keep all your deepest, darkest secrets.

3. They teach you to enjoy the little victories

If they can catch their own tail, you can get out of bed and wash your hair for the first time this week. Go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back — you deserve it!

4. You will never have to sleep alone again

Dogs are the best cuddle buddies. There is no need for a significant other when they provide the ultimate warmth and protection.

5. They are the ultimate wingman

Have you ever taken your dog to a park? Heads will turn and everyone suddenly wants to be your friend. And the fact that they follow you around everywhere is just a plus.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F21%2F636205629044582360235173705_giphy5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=702&h=9fa246842c256c3c725e029dcee2ff88788c5342c1096daa7d3e1b46c9eff29d&size=980x&c=1954530822 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F21%252F636205629044582360235173705_giphy5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D702%26h%3D9fa246842c256c3c725e029dcee2ff88788c5342c1096daa7d3e1b46c9eff29d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1954530822%22%7D" expand=1]

6. You will never have to vacuum

Why bend down and pick up scraps of food when you have a dog to do your dirty work.

7. They are literally the cutest things to walk on four legs

*No explanation needed*

8. They give you unconditional love

No matter how many times you have gotten angry about a chewed up shoe, they will always love you. I guess that's why they're man's best friend.

Whether you are a dog person or not, please be kind to our friends. Because they have no voice, it is our responsibility to be an advocate. No animal deserves to be mistreated.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

8147

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
