10 Reasons To Always Be Good To Your Pets
MyContoxin Management

Everyone has a pet story. Either you’ve had three cats and two dogs in your household since you were three. Or your parents are allergic to fur and you’ve had a lizard since childhood. Maybe by some strange happening, you lived on a farm and you’ve bonded with the shyest cow in the barn. Or maybe you’re hiding a pet python in your room and hope your mom won’t go in there to clean anytime soon.

Whichever it is, you’ve got to admit how strange it is that we live alongside animals. While we have to go to school, have a job and a circle of friends, their brightest moment is having us come home in the evening. As for us, as for all the other things in our lives, sometimes coming home to our pets is the highlight of our day too. That’s reason enough to be good to them. But here are 10 other reasons:

1. Be good to them because you promised to take care of them and protect them. They don't have anyone else.

2. They’re nonjudgmental. They won’t tell your parents you broke their favorite vase just so long as you don’t tell them that they’re been sleeping on the couch.

3. Cuddling with a pet instantly makes your day better. If your cat shows affection towards you, you’re basically the chosen one.

4. Sometimes they’re the only ones who can coax a smile out of you. Bad days get lighter the moment your pet does something silly or cute.

5. The little sounds and wiggles when they’re asleep. Enough said.

6. They instinctually know when you’re in need of some love; you never have to ask or explain like you do with people.

7. They’re excited about life like when you were a 5-year-old who still had dreams and happiness within you. Pets age, but they never grow up.

8. You develop a quiet sort of routine together. It’s like having a roommate but they're less annoyance and passive aggressiveness.

9. They instantly become part of the family. Your dad was super against getting a dog, but two weeks in, they’re napping on the couch together.

10. Be good to them because you’re going to miss them when they’re gone. No one lives forever, and pets aren’t an exception. You don’t really realize how much of a presence they become in your life until they’re gone, so look ahead and value the little troublemakers and cuddle-buddies you have.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
