A Letter To My Dog When I'm Away At School

I miss you dearly.

A Letter To My Dog When I'm Away At School

Being a dog owner is hard. I often feel guilty for leaving for school, work, or just leaving the room and not paying attention to my favorite furry face.

Anyone who goes to college and leaves their pet behind knows the struggle. All you want to do during the week is see their face and snuggle with them, but the problem is: they're not there with you. Luckily for me, I go home on the weekends and I get to see my dog, Marley, for those few days. But sometimes when I can't go home for the weekend, or even during the week when I'm waiting for the weekend, I miss my Marley dearly. So here's a letter for my Marley boy, and for you and your pet when you miss them.

Dear Marley,

First of all, how are you? What have you chewed up today? Did you get a treat? Are you being a good boy?

I miss you a lot! I have pictures of you up in my room and on my phone, but Mom won't send me more when I ask for them. I know, how mean right? I ask her how you're doing and what you're doing, but usually she just gives me a vague answer like "sleeping", "begging", or "outside". She doesn't get how important those updates are.

I tell my roommate, Jen, all the time about how I miss you. You remember her! She told you you were fat. Don't worry, I showed her pictures for her to see that you've lost SOME weight. She tells me how she misses her cat, Jake, too. You wouldn't like him.

I'll be home in a few days, Marley boy! I promise I'll give you treats and let my friends/boyfriend to come over and play with you. Don't forget, when I get off work on Saturday we're going to snuggle. Try not to get distracted and get off the bed. I start work at 8, don't forget to jump on me and wake me up.

Love you puppy boy!

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
