Things Bunny Owners Know All Too Well

There's a lot that comes with owning a bunny. I've had bunnies my whole life -- they're the perfect pet for any age. They're a lot easier to take care of than cats or dogs; they're quite, small, and easy maintenance. There's always that one person in your life that you know has a bunny. Here's a peep into what it's like to have one -- or a bunch.

1. "Aww it's so small! Is it a boy or a girl?"

When bunnies are still young (up to six months) it is extremely difficult to gender them. I've had four lovely bunnies so far, and when they were babies I made sure to play it safe with gender neutral names. (Imagine if Jack turned out to be a girl -- oops.)

2. You've never experienced full panic until one gets lose.

This isn't breaking news, but rabbits are built for speed. And I promise you, the moment one of your precious little guys decides to hop out of your arms you'll reconsider all the times you flipped out over nothing. They can squeeze under anything, and fit in between everything.

3. Yes, she/he did just make a sound.

Contrary to popular belief, bunnies do make noise -- just very quiet weird noises. I swear mine deserve Oscars for every time they sigh out loud.

4. Photo shoots are always a great idea.

Obviously, I had to slip my two guys in here somewhere -- here's Pepper and Peanut. They're always posing and look how damn cute!

5. Wires are suddenly horrifying.

Did you just lose cable, but the rest of the power is still working? Check again! Chances are your little bunny decided to chew through all of the wires behind your TV. On a serious note, keep all wires above the floor in case someone wants a salty snack.

6. They can be vicious.

If you have two male rabbits, you already know -- they can fight, growl and kick each other when they get mad. In some cases, bunnies need separate cages to sleep in to avoid fighting. (You can't tell by the photo, but Pepper and Peanut don't get along that well, and sleep separately.) No you weren't expecting it, but yes, it happens.

7. Easter is now your favorite holiday.

No explanation, here.

8. Everyone is high-key jealous of your adorable pets.

Always remember -- regardless how many times they've scratched at your floor or bit your thumb, they love you just as much as you love them.

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.
