10 Things My Dog Does That Proves She's Basically My Child

Yes, I am a Mom... a dog Mom.

10 Things My Dog Does That Proves She's Basically My Child
Personal Photo

I have had my dog, Coco, for almost 7 years. We just recently moved out together and we have gotten really close. She's basically my child.

1. She makes a mess.

Coco will leave her toys everywhere! Sometimes she destroys her toys and leaves the stuffing all over the place. Note: There are actually 2 toys under her in the pic.

2. She wants to eat whatever I eat.

Anytime I’m eating, she wants to eat too. Every once in awhile she’ll get something from my plate but other than that it’s just dog food for her.

3. We go on adventures together.

She loves car rides, hikes, and just anything that gets her out of the house. She's always down for an adventure.

4. She sleeps with me.

Coco sleeps right next to me. When it's cold, she'll even sleep under the covers.

5. She loves to be carried.

Coco will stand and put her paws up to tell me she wants to be carried. Lucky for me, she's only 20 pounds.

6. My friends love her and give her gifts.

My friends love Coco. I take her to hang out with them and everyone loves her. Some of my friends even give her gifts!

7. She loves cuddles.

Ever since she was young, she loved to sit in my lap. I can do homework, play video games, or watch TV and she'll be right in my lap. As long as she's touching me, she's relaxed.

8. I give her baths.

Personal Photo

Coco gets groomed every few months but in between, I give her baths. She gets right into the bathtub and lets me wash her. Sometimes I just put her right in the shower with me which is her favorite.

9. We communicate with each other.

Personal Photo

I can tell her something and she understands me. For example, she knows what "Wanna go on a ride?" and "Josh (my bf/her dad) is coming over!" means. Whenever she knows someone is coming over, she goes and sits by the window to wait for them.

10. She's smart... just like her Mom!

Personal Photo

Coco knows all kinds of tricks. She can sit, roll over, shake hands, and jump.

Here are just a few reasons Coco is basically my child. I always look forward to coming home to her after a long day of class or work. She always makes my day bright!

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
