new york city animal abuse
For years people have been questioning the ethics of the horse drawn carriages in New York City

The finding have been pretty clear, these "romantic" horse drawn carriage rides are extremely abusive. There are so many cases that have demonstrated the horrible conditions these animals face every day. One of the horse trainers openly admitted to choking his horses till they pass out in order to train them. Also, the same train said he enjoyed scaring his skittish horses and it would make him laugh like a "madman".

Horses, being sensitive creatures, have specific needs and limitations that are often compromised in the bustling city environment. The relentless noise, fumes, and unforgiving concrete pavements take a toll on their physical and mental health. The long hours spent navigating through traffic, often in extreme weather conditions, can lead to exhaustion, stress, and various health issues.

These regal beings, accustomed to roaming vast open spaces, find themselves confined to small stables in cramped urban quarters. Their natural behaviors, such as grazing, socializing, and engaging in physical activities, are severely limited. The constant exposure to noise and congestion only adds to their anxiety and discomfort.

As advocates for change, we must encourage the city and its residents to embrace more compassionate means of transportation. By supporting animal-free alternatives, such as electric carriages or eco-friendly tours, we can foster a culture of responsible tourism and ensure a brighter future for all.

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.

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.
