A Letter To My Fur Baby

I have paw prints on my heart, and I thank you!

A Letter To My Fur Baby
Emily Ryan Turner

Dear Sunny,

You will always be my handsome green-eyed golden boy. I remember a girl in my kindergarten class telling me that her cat had kittens. I went straight home and told my mom the exciting news. We went over to my friend’s house and picked you out! They say that great things in life come for free. You most certainly did!

You have been my cuddle buddy, my therapist and my excuse to stay home and be lazy for so many years now. You mean the world to me. I hope that you understand me when I say “I love you.” I hope you understand how much I care for you when I hold you in my arms and kiss you. I hope that you go to Heaven and we can live in eternity together.

Without my fur baby, my house would probably be cleaner and I’d probably have more money, but my heart would be empty!

I love the way you sing around the house meowing like crazy! I love the way you have to come lay in between the computer and me when I’m doing homework. I love the way you acknowledge my presence in a room with a small meow!

You are so precious! I hate knowing that one day we will have to say goodbye to one another. You are 16 now, and that’s so scary. I am so glad you are healthy and happy! I hope that you stay this way for a long time!

Day by day, you have remained constantly loyal and loving. Most importantly: I can always depend on you. You are my boy! You are my little old man! I never thought I could love someone so much!

Thank you for loving me for so long! Thank you for accepting a new dog and cat along the way! Thank you for being okay with moving twice! Thank you for loving my ugly cry face, and thank you for posing for so many pictures. Thank you for loving me even when I leave for college. I always come back to you, just like you do when you escape outside!

Sunny, you have made my heart so happy for all of these years together. Everyone who truly knows me, knows how obsessed, I am with you. I am a proud cat mom! I also never truly trust anyone who says they don’t like cats! Like what?

Keep being the sweet sunshine boy, you are! I will love you forever! Just remember that I am working hard, so you can have a better life! I thank God everyday for you! I know you love me too, even when you are being sassy. My only wish is for us to keep growing old together. When the day comes to say goodbye, it will be one of the worst days of my life, but for now I still see a bright future! We will keep living our lives loving each other to the fullest. I love you, my sweet fur baby.

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy, when skies are grey. You never know dear, how much I love you. Please don’t take my sunshine away.”

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
