Here's some PAWSitively fantastic advice for you!

11 Reminders For Anyone Having A Ruff Time Leaving Their Dog
Kayla Quinn

College season has started once again, and after a summer full of your dog, it's time to leave them behind for the semester. But, fear not! Here's 11 reminders you need to hear when you have to leave your dog behind:

1. Every time you leave your dog will be difficult

It doesn't matter if it's the first time or the dozenth time: having to leave your furry friend behind is never easy for either of you.

2. You have plenty of pictures 

As any dog owner knows, there are albums dedicated to your dog alone on your phone. Although the picture doesn't compare to the real thing, you can show off all you want to everyone. 2

3. Your dog is getting plenty of love

My mom likes to say that Zander is in fact HER dog, and not the family dog. I know he's getting as much love from her as he did from me over the summer, and that's a really comforting thought.

4. You are so lucky to have your dog, and vice versa

Kayla Quinn

Your bond with your dog won't go away with distance, I promise.

5. You aren't leaving forever 

You know you'll be back with your dog in no time at all.

6. FaceTime does exist

If you miss your dog, just call home and put the dog on. You know you want to.

7. Your dog still loves you 

Your dog is, if we're being honest, your number one fan. No ifs, ands, or buts.

8. You are most definitely on your dog's mind 

Your dog is thinking about you and missing you just as much as you're missing them.

9. Your dog believes in you 

Hey, if you're ever having a bad day, just remember your number one fan.

10. You have all school breaks with your dog

Kayla Quinn

Breaks will fly by, sure, but at least you get to spend them all with your dog!

11. Your dog will be waiting for you whenever you come back home

Kayla Quinn

It doesn't matter how long you're away, your dog will always be happy to welcome you home.

Goodbye's are never easy, but they aren't forever! Good luck this semester.

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

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 or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
