Since the day I was born, I grew up in a home where there was always a dog. All of the dogs we've had were mutts (mixed dogs) because we are a family that adopts. Over the past 22 years there are some things I've learned about mutts that I know better than I may even know myself. If you have a mutt, too, you may very well knows these things too!

1. They are all unique.

No two mutts will ever be the same and that's what makes them unique! I'm sorry but if you put a bunch of golden retrievers in a yard together I would not be able to tell the difference. I love my mutts because they all have a unique outside just like their personalities.

2. They are less likely to be judged.

You hear of landlords or certain establishments banning pitbulls, rottweilers, and wolfdogs all the time. With a mutt there is no need to fear! Everyone is accepting to mutts because they don't fit breed stereotypes.

3. They have their quirks.

For our dog Shelby, when she would want to go outside in the middle of the night she would wait until you rolled onto your back and then she would jump onto your chest and grumble until you woke up. For our dog Grace, she always has a hair lip whether it be on one side or both. And for our dog Mckenzie, her left ear always bends into the funniest of positions. Every mutt has the most adorable and unique quirks.

4. They constantly surprise you.

With mutts you may know what breeds they are comprised of, but you will never know what breed features will be more prominent or even what breed personality tendencies they'll have. Sometimes they tend to change over the weeks or even years! They are always surprising you whether it be through their physical appearance or personalities.

5. They make you laugh.

Mutts are always doing something that will make you laugh so hard. My dog, Mckenzie, always makes us laugh because she has to be a princess and put her head on a pillow when she lays down.

6. They put up with your silly ideas.

Whether you want to take cute pictures of them or even put clothes on them, they'll just go along with it happily (most times). They love you and know you love them so they're willing to put up with any silly idea you have!

7. They love schedules.

Mutts love to get up at the same time every day, eat at the same time every day, go to the bathroom the same time every day, and go to bed the same time every day. We think they do nothing all day, but reality is, they are better at creating schedules than we are! They love to create a schedule and stick to it.

8. They are good at entertaining themselves.

Whether it's plopping down on their back and acting silly or randomly sprinting up and down the stairs, mutts always seem to easily entertain themselves. They truly are unique in the way they entertain themselves too.

9. They get along with just about everyone.

Mutts tend to get along with all types of animals and humans! A lot of mutts come from shelters so they are used to sharing their space with other dogs, but no matter where you take them, they'll always be eager to meet new people and animals!

10. They have the biggest hearts.

When you bring a mutt into your home it will be changed forever. They will leave the biggest impact in your family and will have the biggest heart. They know when something is wrong, and there know when you're happy. They're always there for you and live their entire life being your best friend.

What Where You Study Says About You, As A College Student AND A Person

Are you more of a quad studier or a hipster coffee joint kinda gal?

Coming into college, you were probably given the advice "make sure you find a good place to study early on." So what does where you study say about your personality?

1. The Library

You're either boring, traditional or you get unfocused super easily and you need dead silence to study. Do what you gotta do.

2. Starbucks

If you study at Starbucks you probably like to study in a social environment. Maybe you're in a major that has a ton of group projects or maybe you'd rather just be surrounded by your friends and sipping on a vanilla chai latte while you make note cards.

3. The Local Coffee Shop

If you study at a local coffee shop, it's because your entire lifestyle is fueled by caffeine and caffeine alone. Oh, and maybe because you like high-waters and wide-brimmed hats, you hipster.

4. The Quad

If you study on the Quad, you're probably not very easily distracted by cute dogs or cute boys. You're probably also pretty outdoorsy and you hate it to be locked up in the library with such beautiful weather.

5. Your Church Student Center

You study here for one of two reasons. 1) all of your friends from church study here and you want to talk to them while you study 2) you want to be able to easily slip off into the church to pray for your GPA when you're feeling stressed.

6. Your Room

Major kudos to people who study in their room. I don't see how you aren't distracted by your bed that isn't made, or your closet that needs to be organized, or your photo album from high school or literally anything in your room but if you can manage to study in your room without getting distracted then you keep doing you.

7. Your Sorority/Fraternity House

If you study in your sorority or fraternity house it's more than likely because you either need study hours every week and can only log them in the house, or because you're feeling homesick and studying on the couch, in your pajamas while talking to your house mom feels reminiscent of high school.

8. A Combination

If you're anything like me you've studied in all seven of these places and it really just depends on the day of the week, the class you're studying for and your mood. I can shut myself away in the library for hours and get everything done that I need to accomplish, but sometimes I would rather sunbathe on the quad, or get a shot of espresso and coffee cake at Monarch while I'm grinding away at my textbook.

Many different thoughts go through you're while trying to first off figure out what story you want to pursue. After that, it's just a matter of getting everything that is needed for it and then putting it together.
