I, by no means, wish to ever be a crazy cat lady.

I can't imagine living alone in my seventies and being surrounded by a sea of cats and their meows for attention.

But, I would certainly love to have my own cat someday!

If it wasn't against our dorm policy, my roommate Kylee and I would've adopted a kitten by now.

So what better place for us to visit on a slow Saturday than a CAT CAFE?

On Saturday, Kylee and I drove to the Blue Cat Cafe (it's in Austin, TX) and had a great time! Here's a quick list of our experience and things to look for when you visit.

1. You’re not allowed to pick up the cats, but you can take pictures with them

So much for a cute picture, am I right?! As you can see, I look awkward in nearly every picture because I had to STAND next to each cat.

2. The cafe had KITTENS!

Bryanne Sanchez

Much to our surprise, there were two kittens that were about a month old! One was super playful and the other was curled up asleep on a nearby couch. To say they were adorable would be an understatement.

3. You can take home any of the cats. 

If you make a new feline friend, he/she can be yours for $99. You'll be able to spend plenty of time with cats of different personality types to see which one is your favorite!

4. The cats have sweet temperaments.

All of the cats have been adopted from the nearby Humane Society. The cafe partners with the Humane Society to choose the friendliest and most lovable cats of the group, and it was obvious they had chosen right!

5. The cafe is structured as a giant cat playground.

If cat heaven existed, this would be it! There were cat trees, cat toys, fuzzy blankets, and makeshift branches for the cats to jump and run on.

6. All of the cats are living their best life!

The cats were free to play with any of the guests, take a snooze by the window, or walk around on the vines above. They were getting plenty of attention and still had time to take plenty of cat naps. Plus, their food bowls were all full!

7. There were no litter boxes in sight.

The owners were smart to place the cats' litter boxes in a separate room. The cafe was spotless and clean the entire time we stayed!

8. The cat cafe had an extensive menu.

All food is kept and prepared inside of a food trailer that is located in front of the cafe. There's a vast selection of sandwiches and drinks to choose from, and the names of the items are too clever! The Blue Cat Specialties include "Peppurrmint Mocha" and "Caramel Meowcchiato."

9. Invite a friend! Everything's better with your BFF!

Bryanne Sanchez

Kylee and I both love cats, so this experience was 100 times more fun with her by my side! Bring a friend so you can both fight over who you think is the cutest cat while giving each of the cats a funny name.

10. Catisfaction guaranteed!

Bryanne Sanchez

Taking a day trip to Austin to visit this cat cafe was an adventure I'll treasure for a lifetime! If you ever have the chance to stop by, it's a unique experience that you won't want to miss out on!

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.

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.
