The 7 Stages Of Missing Your Dog In College
Sophia Elkotni

Being away at college can be really tough.

Saying goodbye to my dog is probably one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I am constantly thinking about him and wondering what he's doing.

Here is a list of stages every college student goes through when they are away from their dog.

1. Posting pictures everywhere

Everyone who follows you on social media knows that you miss your dog. Basically every other week you're posting about him in some way.

2. Facetiming your dog

I know I'm not alone in doing this. I'd facetime my mom and ask to speak to my dog. I probably confuse him more than anything, but it makes me feel somewhat better.

3. Petting other dogs

Every time I see a dog on campus, a smile quickly spreads across my face. And if the dog is friendly, I am so eager to pet it.

4. You tell everyone about your dog back home

I work in retail, and last week I told this random lady about my dog, good thing she was as enthusiastic about him as I was. I even ended up getting out my phone and showing her a picture of his cute little face.

5. You try to convince yourself that it's not that bad

This never works. It is really bad. How could you just leave him like that?

6. You ask people back home to send you pictures of your dog

Of course, Face Timing every day is unrealistic, so instead you ask for videos and pictures constantly.

7. You count down the days until you get to see your dog

This is probably the only thing that keeps you going in life.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
