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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

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.
