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?

11 Things Psychology Majors Hear That Drive Them Crazy

No pun intended.

We've all been there. You're talking to a new acquaintance, or a friend of your parents, or whoever. And then, you get the dreaded question.

"So what are you studying in school?"

Cue the instant regret of picking Psychology as your major, solely for the fact that you are 99.9% likely to receive one of the slightly comical, slightly cliche, slightly annoying phrases listed below. Don't worry though, I've included some responses for you to use next time this comes up in conversation. Because it will.

Quick side note, these are all real-life remarks that I've gotten when I told people I was a psych major.

Here we go.

1. So are you, like, analyzing me right now?

Well, I wasn't. But yeah. Now I am.

2. Ugh so jealous! You picked the easy major.

"Lol" is all I have to say to this one. I'm gonna go write my 15-page paper on cognitive impairment. You have fun with your five college algebra problems, though!

3. So can you tell me what you think is wrong with me? *Shares entire life story*

Don't get me wrong; I love listening and helping people get through hard times. But we can save the story about how one time that one friend said that one slightly rude comment to you for later.

4. Well, s**t, I have to be careful what I say around you.

Relax, pal. I couldn't diagnose and/or institutionalize you even if I wanted to.

5. OMG! I have the perfect first client for you! *Proceeds to vent about ex-boyfriend or girlfriend*

Possible good response: simply nod your head the entire time, while actually secretly thinking about the Ben and Jerry's carton you're going to go home and demolish after this conversation ends.

6. So you must kind of be like, secretly insane or something to be into Psychology.

Option one: try and hide that you're offended. Option two: just go with it, throw a full-blown tantrum, and scare off this individual, thereby ending this painful conversation.

7. Oh. So you want to be a shrink?

First off, please. Stop. Calling. Therapists. Shrinks. Second, that's not a psych major's one and only job option.

8. You know you have to go to grad school if you ever want a job in Psychology.

Not completely true, for the record. But I am fully aware that I may have to spend up to seven more years of my life in school. Thanks for the friendly reminder.

9. So you... want to work with like... psychopaths?

Let's get serious and completely not-sarcastic for a second. First off, I take personal offense to this one. Having a mental illness does not classify you as a psycho, or not normal, or not deserving of being treated just like anyone else on the planet. Please stop using a handful of umbrella terms to label millions of wonderful individuals. It's not cool and not appreciated.

10. So can you, like, read my mind?

It actually might be fun to say yes to this one. Try it out and see what happens. Get back to me.

11. You must be a really emotional person to want to work in Psychology.

Psychology is more than about feeling happy, or sad, or angry. Psychology is about understanding the most complex thing to ever happen to us: our brain. How it works the way it does, why it works the way it does, and how we can better understand and communicate with this incredibly mysterious, incredibly vast organ in our tiny little skull. That's what psychology is.

So keep your head up, psychology majors, and don't let anyone discourage you about choosing, what is in my opinion, the coolest career field out there. The world needs more people like us.

Short Stories On Odyssey: Roses

What's worth more than red roses?


Five years old and a bouquet of roses rested in her hands. The audience-- clapped away her performance, giving her a standing ovation. She's smiling then because everything made sense, her happiness as bright as the roses she held in her hands.

Fifteen now, and a pile of papers rested on her desk. The teachers all smiled when she walked down the aisle and gave them her presentation. She was content then but oh so stressed, but her parents happy she had an A as a grade, not red on her chest.

Eighteen now and a trail of tears followed her to the door. Partying, and doing some wild things, she just didn't know who she was. She's crying now, doesn't know anymore, slamming her fists into walls, pricking her fingers on roses' thorns.

Twenty-one and a bundle of bills were grasped in her hands. All the men-- clapped and roared as she sold her soul, to the pole, for a dance. She's frowning now because everything went wrong, but she has to stay strong, for rich green money, is worth more than red roses.
