12 Thoughts College Girls Have Walking Around A Pet Store

Because you can't just stop in for something quick.

@Helena Lopes on pexels.com

Whether it be to find a new toy for your good boy or to stop in for last-minute kitty litter, every pet owner has found themselves at some type of pet store. Probably for way longer then they should be there.

1. "Aw, that's a cute picture of a dog!"

It's either a Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, or a Beagle plastered on a sign for the store, but they're so heckin' cute. Your mind automatically goes to a dog you know of that specific breed. Smile to yourself.

2. "Aw, that's a cute actual dog!"

Most likely not a Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, or Beagle. If they are, good for you! You ask the owner for some quick pets before carrying on with your mission.

3. "Please don't pee on the floor."

If you've brought your dog (or any other leashed animal), you hope with all of your being that they do not pee all over the floor so you do not have to get an associate. Or worse, what if they poop? What if it's diarrhea? Gross.

4. "Look at all the little fishes!"

The perfect pet for a college girl: not too much commitment, small living space, and you don't have to pick up poop! I am totally guilty of owning a fish my freshman year and getting him a filtered tank with decorations. He was spoiled but he didn't like me or roommate. Kind of a nuisance. R.I.P. Asparagus.

5. "Do I really need another fish?"

One fish just never seems like enough. If you do get another fish and plan on housing them together, make sure to read up on if you can with specific breeds or genders. Believe it or not, some fish are actually a little feisty.

6. "I'm gonna go look at the fluffy boys getting groomed."

The pet store I go to has a grooming area with a window so shoppers can look at all of the pets being washed, blow-dried, and brushed. Once in a while, you'll get a really fluffy boy who looks like Chewbacca. That's when you know it is going to be a good day. *cue Chewbacca sound*

7. "Ah, that's a tarantula!"

Fuzzy and crawly. I don't know about you but if I see an arachnid that's not Lucas the Spider, I'm out of there.

8. "These beds are sooooo soft."

Almost so soft that you debate on buying one for yourself. Seriously, some of them are nicer than my mattress that I had in elementary school. At least your pet will be sleeping on a cloud. If they even sleep on their designated bed. (Looking at you, cats.)

9. "Does my pet need an outfit?"

If they will let you put the outfit on them, the correct answer is yes. I got my dog a Christmas sweater with a bell and he absolutely went nuts trying to find the source of the sound every time he moved. It was the absolute cutest thing ever.

10. "Well, it smells lovely in here."

Sarcasm. It smells like typical animal. If you're allergic to any type of animal, please bring medication because your allergies will start to act up. Come prepared.

11. "Will my pet break this if I buy it?"

My dog destroys tennis balls in a heartbeat. Especially the ones that have the little squeaker inside.

12. "I should buy some of these special treats."

If your pet is with you, they probably know that this station means treats and if you walk by it, they will look at you like when you don't give them the last bite of your meal. The ultimate betrayal.

With online websites that let you order your pet essentials right to your door, it's important to remember to take your pet out or even spoil them a little more than usual.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
