9 Instagram Dogs To Help You During Your Second Semester

9 Instagram Dogs To Help You During Your Second Semester

Because dogs always make everything better

There’s no more depressing time than back-to-school time. We struggle to get out of bed in the morning, we don’t have any more home-cooked meals until spring break and, most importantly, we have to say goodbye to our pets. But, have no fear, because I have the perfect compilation of doggos to follow on Instagram while you fight through the second semester.

1. Sid the Beagle

Sid is just like most college students: loves to eat, and is happiest when lying down and doing absolutely nothing. He’s known as “pizza dog” because, yes, he is that smiling dog with a piece of pizza you’ve seen on the Internet.

2. Doug the Pug

This dog is ICONIC. Doug the Pug can pose like Naomi Campbell, he serves up looks daily and is just really relatable.

3. Sir Charles Barkley the French Bulldog

You should be following this dog just because of his name alone. He always dresses his best and is basically America’s Next Top Model.

4. Boo the Pomeranian

Boo is the OG Instagram dog. He has his own stuffed animals and a book was written about him. In the land of dogs, Boo is Kim Kardashian and we are all just watching him live his best life.

5. Tuna the Chiweenie

Even though Tuna was born with a pretty big overbite, that didn’t stop him from taking over the world one selfie at a time. He is a chihuahua-dachshund mix and is absolutely adorable.

6. Corgnelius the Corgi the Corgi

Again, the name alone should warrant an immediate follow. Corgnelius always shows off his lil corgi butt in insanely cute outfits and has a permanent smile on his face. What’s not to love?

7. Maru the Shiba Inu

This pupper hails from Japan and has become especially popular ever since the “Doge” meme took off. Like Boo, Maru also stars in multiple books and is a global superstar.

8. Agador the Maltipoo

Agador is another iconic dog that everyone needs to stan immediately! Referred to as the “Bob Ross of dogs” (yes, really), Agador has beauty, grace and a killer attitude.

9. Sprout the Brussels-Griffon

Sprout lives in New York City, so you know he’s on trend. Each day, Sprout posts a photo in an amazing outfit with an even more amazing backdrop of NYC behind him. Is it bad I want to be Sprout?

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

Severus Snape Is The Worst, And Here's Why

Albus Severus, sweetie, I'm so sorry...


I grew up being absolutely obsessed with the Harry Potter franchise. I read the books for the first time in second and third grade, then again in middle school, and for the third time in my last year of high school. Recently, I had a somewhat heated argument with a fellow fan of the books about Severus Snape. As I've reread the Harry Potter books, I've noticed that, although J.K. Rowling tried to give him a redemption arc, he only got worse because of it. Here's why I still think Severus Snape is the absolute worst.

His love for Lily Potter was actually really creepy. When I was younger and reading the books, I always found the fact that he held fast in his love for Lily to be very endearing, even noble. However, rereading it after going through a couple of relationships myself, I've come to realize that the way he pined over her was super creepy. It was understandable during his time at Hogwarts; he was bullied, and she was the only one who "understood" him. However, she showed zero interest, and if that didn't clue him into realizing that he should back off, her involvement with James Potter should have. She was married. He was pining after a married, happy woman. If he truly loved her, he would have realized how happy she was and backed off. Instead, he took it out on her orphan son and wallowed in bitterness and self-pity, which is creepy and extremely uncool. When a girl is kind to a boy during high school (or in this case, wizard school), it's not an open invitation for him to pine for her for the literal rest of his life and romanticizes the absolute @#$% out of her. It's just her being a decent person. Move on, Severus.

He verbally abused teenagers. One of the most shocking examples of this is in The Prisoner of Azkaban when Snape literally told Neville Longbottom that he would kill his beloved toad, Trevor if he got his Shrinking Potion wrong, and then punished him when he managed to make the potion correctly. Furthermore, poor Neville's boggart was literally Snape. The amount of emotional torture Neville must have been enduring from Snape to create this type of debilitating fear must have been almost unbearable, and even if Snape was simply trying to be a "tough" professor, there is no excuse for creating an atmosphere of hostility and fear like he did in his potions class for vulnerable students like Neville. In addition, he ruthlessly tormented Harry (the last living piece of Lily Potter, his supposed "true love," btw), and made fun of Hermione Granger's appearance. Sure, he might have had a terrible life. However, it's simply a mark of poor character to take it out on others, especially when the people you take it out on are your vulnerable students who have no power to stand up to you. Grow up.

He willingly joined a terrorist group and helped them perform genocide and reign over the wizarding world with terror tactics for a couple of decades. No explanation needed as to why this is terrible.

Despite the constant romanticization of his character, I will always see the core of Severus Snape, and that core is a bitter, slimy, genocidal, manipulative trash being. J.K. Rowling's attempt to redeem him only threw obsessive and controlling traits into the mix. Snape is the absolute worst, and romanticizing him only removes criticism of an insane man who just so happened to be capable of love (just like the vast majority of the rest of us). Thank you, next.
