A Letter to My Dog

Thanks for Being my Best Friend

A Letter to My Dog

Dear Puppy,

When I first got you, you were so little that you could easily curl up in my lap and sleep. You preferred chewing a number of contraband things such as blankets, glasses, and pens, but you were still my cute little puppy. At first, it seemed that I had simply gained an adorable new responsibility. Little did I know that you'd end up being my best friend.

You're literally always there. When I come home every day, you lift up your sleepy head from your nap and trot over to me to smell all the new smells I gathered while I was gone. You always insist on belly rubs and sleeping next to my feet, and you're always present with your big brown eyes whenever I eat. You get so excited when I ask if you want a treat, and I cherish all the cuddle times we have when I'm procrastinating in the mornings. All in all, you're the most present part of my life.

When the bad things happen, you know just what to do. You always know how to make things better, even if it's just letting me hug you and get tears and snot in your fur. It's like you have a sixth sense and can read exactly how I feel. You seem to share in both my joys and sadness, even when you can't actually understand them.

You also provide a great excuse to get out of unwarranted social events. Many a time have I used your necessary company as a means of staying home. You're also my excuse when I look crazy for talking to myself. Whenever I have leftover food I'm too crazy to throw away, sure enough, you're always there to take care of it for me.

While not everyone may see how cute you are, you will always be the most precious, adorable, beautiful pup to me. Even when you're old and grey, I will always see you as the lively puppy you once were. You're my pup, my walking buddy, and my best friend.

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.
