You Are A Dog's Best Friend, Never Forget Them

I knew it was going to be difficult losing my best friend, but I am glad he got to live a great life with us.

Having a dog gives you a new best friend who is always there for you in the tough times. They understand when you are sad or depressed. When they sense this, they come up to you and lay with you to try and help you feel better. That's how it was with my childhood dog until we just recently lost him.

Losing a family member is always hard, and your dog is part of your family no matter how long you've had him/her for. My dog was a part of my life since I was in elementary school. When we got him he immediately became a huge part of my life. He would always be around me as well as want to sleep in my bed with me to keep me company.

When I went into high school, I was busy with school, swimming and work so he got confused when I was never around. My dad would tell me that he would sit outside my bedroom door waiting for me to come home. When I finally did come home from everything, he would be waiting at the front door for me to walk in and he would greet me immediately.

Going off to college was the worst. Not being home for months at a time really affected him because he would lay outside my bedroom door for hours hoping I would come out. I always hated hearing how he was acting because I missed him so much and he missed me just as much. Even after we got a second dog, he was still my favorite dog.

What was making this process even more difficult was the fact that he was the second dog we lost in less than a year. We lost my other dog towards the beginning of summer 2018, and that was hard because he was so much younger than my first dog.

It's always hard to lose a part of you but I would never regret getting my own dog. I know at one point that they will be gone but they deserve to have a happy family to live with. Think about the present, not only about the future or the end.

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.

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.
