Dogs are the best things on the face of the earth. If you're not quite sure about adopting a puppy, these five reasons are certainly convincing!

1. Responsibility!

Puppies are often times a lot of work to take care of and that is why so many people decide against getting a dog. What many don't realize is that dogs are your companions for ten or more years. The time spent with them is well worth it. I would argue that having a dog helps to build a sense of responsibility beyond all else.

2. Love!

The amount of love that comes from having to care for someone or something other than yourself is a true gift. They don't say that a dog is a man's best friend for no reason!

3. Mood!

Dogs help support your mood—whether it be good or bad! Usually, dogs can help your mood in significant ways. I read a study that the longer you pet a dog, the happier and calmer the pet and person becomes. Having tested this theory out on my golden retrievers, I can confirm this is so true!

4. Activity!

Dogs make you more active because they need to be active - especially puppies! Puppies need play time, attention, and care, which in turns means you will be getting your own play time and attention from your new pup!

5. Selflessness!

Dogs help teach children and adults selflessness which is crucial to owning a puppy! The need to take care of a dog falls in line with the responsibility point to getting a puppy too!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
