Why You Should Own A Dog

It just adds a little extra to my day because of the love I feel coming from her...They are just so freaking cute. Need I say more?

Why You Should Own A Dog

As a proud owner of a beautiful chihuahua I want to share with you some reasons I believe you should own a Dog.

1. Endless Cuddles

They will cuddle you until you just can’t anymore. My little one likes to jump on my bed or the sofa when i’m there and likes to rub her head on my arm or my stomach. It just adds a little extra to my day because of the love I feel coming from her.

2. Companion at all times

I mean at ALL times. They follow you everywhere around the house. Unless my little one is sleeping you better believe she is right behind me all over the house. Not only that but she is there when I don't have anyone to comfort me. If i’m upset she instantly knows and will try her be to comfort me.

3. Prepares you for responsibility

Having a dog is not a thing that should be taken lightly. It is a great responsibility and although some people don’t like the comparison it can be like having a child. You have to feed them and make sure they always have water. And also make sure they get outside on time to use the restroom or pick up the little potty pads. Not only is it physical things like grooming but also emotional. You need to have time to be with them and show them love and play with them or just simply sit there a scratch their belly. O and let’s not forget about the little whining in the middle of the night sometimes.

4. More exercise

You will get more exercise! You can take them out for a walk or run. You can also just play around the house. They will always have a great time running after you.

5. Protection at all times

Your dog will always make sure you know someone has arrived. Literally every person that has stepped on our property has been announced by her. So you will definitely know if there is an intruder.

6. Happiness

I believe you will be happier and so do most scientist. It is said dogs can help reduce stress and relieve anxiety !

7. They’re just cute

They are just so freaking cute. Need I say more?

Although there are multiple reasons you should own a dog you should always remember they require time and love. If you don’t think you will have time to play or just cuddle please don’t get a one.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
