So, We Got A Puppy

And she does cute puppy stuff.

So, We Got A Puppy
Amy Schade

On April 2, we got a new puppy. Her name is Acadia, after Acadia, Maine, and we call her Cadie. In the two months since we picked her up, she has done some adorable things. Cadie

Chases her own tail.

Is afraid of her reflection, specifically the one in the oven.

Cadie enjoys watching T.V.

Was very confused/scared when we put her dog tag on her as she did not know what was making that continuous jingling sound (it was her).

Goes on walks with the family, also known to Cadie as “carries.”

She doesn’t quite fit in her bed yet, but she will get there.

Cadie plays fetch by returning the toy and flopping or leaping into your lap, therefore it is necessary to be ready to catch her at all times.

She loves to play with the cats, but only one of them likes to play back.

There was one time when I came outside and my mom told me that Cadie had been chasing ducks in the yard. Excited, I asked where the ducks were, to which my mom said “flying overhead.”

She loves meeting new dogs, but at the same time can’t be bothered with them with then are loud.

She is SUPER chill in the car, she just falls asleep immediately.

Cadie is pretty much a vacuum cleaner (we have had to puppy-proof most of the house).

She has the most high pitched bark you will ever hear.

She has had one bath and is still unsure of how she feels about it.

Cadie barks at our whiteboard roster of the Bachelorette contestants, maybe she’s looking out for Rachel?

Cadie will give you kisses...but she won’t stop. It gets to the point where it’s just kind of awkward and feels weird.

She loves to walk herself, because she is an independant woman and doesn’t need help.

Cadie falls asleep...anywhere.

She also loves sticks.

She will even pose for pictures (we do not know these people).

Cadie is down for pretty much anything, and we love her for it.

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
