My Best Friend Can't Even Talk

I don't have the traditional bestie. I have the best furry friend.

My best friend has four paws and a wet nose, and I am not ashamed to admit it. There are so many reasons why, but the most outstanding quality is his unconditional love.

Reason #1:

He can sense every mood I'm in and know exactly how to react. I always know that someone is happily waiting when I walk through the door. My furry friend greets me with a slobbery kiss and a wagging tail. No matter what space I am in emotionally or physically, he is always in the same state of mind. Happy.

Reason #2:

He has been there through it all- good times and bad, heartbreaks and victories, late nights and early mornings. When I would leave at 4:30 in the morning for a workout class, he would sit up in his pen, in complete darkness, because he knew it was me. When I pulled into the driveway at 6:30, there he was, staring at me through the front door, so excited that his tail moved all over and in every direction. He is always ready to play, even on nights when I didn't come home until 10:30 because I had too many commitments and not enough hours.

Reason #3:

He is the most loyal companion I could ever hope for. No matter how mad I get, I can't stay angry for long because I can't resist his smile. (Yes, dogs have a smile too.) Even the nights when he frustrates me to no end and I have to walk away, he holds no grudge. He plops down on the couch and waits. As soon as I sit down, he jumps into my lap and waits for a belly rub, as if nothing ever happened.

Reason #4:

He was there for me through my darkest time. He was the FIRST one to notice when something wasn't right. He knew something was different before I did. The moment I came home from school, he was glued to my side, and he didn't leave until I went to bed. Even the days I locked myself in my room, he laid outside my door. Even as I write this article, he is curled up next to me. His unspoken support is felt as I feel his heart beat in rhythm with mine.

To my best friend, thank you for being your happy self.

I will love you forever and always Cooper.

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.
