What Its Like To Own a Pug

Doug the Pug better look out for Gerald the Pug

What Its Like To Own a Pug

I learned a lot while being in a relationship with Dom. As you read in my previous article, we are living life in Hawaii and the happiest ever, but I don’t think we’d be the happy people we are if it weren’t for our pug, Gerald.

You’d be surprised, having a dog in your life and being a pug mom and dad is so fun and exciting. Obviously at first, having a brand new puppy wasn’t the easiest thing, but it still was so fun. Ask any of my friends or Dom’s friends, I think the constant snapchat’s of Gerald got to be a little much, but that didn’t bother me. I mean, how could you not love him and want to post pictures of him constantly? He’s the cutest pug I’ve ever seen!

Being a dog owner at this age is like having your own child, honestly I think with everything that is going on, a dog is more than enough to have around. That being said, being able to come home to his smiling face right at the door each day is so great.

I think the funniest thing about Gerald is the fact that he has his own personality, I know that is the case for any other dog, but his pug personality is even better than any other dog I’ve had or met. He can definitely be a you-know-what sometimes, but that’s what makes him who he is. For example, when I came home not too long ago, someone had left the bathroom door open and all I could see was the look of pure shame on his face when we caught him in the act of his mischievousness.

All in all, I couldn’t thank Dom enough for pushing to get Gerald when we did. He fills our life with happiness and joy each day, and I can’t wait to continue going on adventures as a whole fam! Thanks for making us so happy, Gerald.

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.
