10 Things Every Dog Owner Does For Their Fur Baby

As a dog owner myself, I am pretty guilty of doing some weird things, but I love my dog like it's a child. We have all talked to our dogs in the high pitched voice and laid on the ground with them to play so I have compiled a list of 10 weird things that every great dog owner does for their sweet fur baby out of total love and affection.

1. Congratulate them for doing a cool trick, listening, or just doing their business outside.

If you're like me and got your dog when they were a puppy you know how awful it was going through the potty training stage so now that they have learned you're glad that their pee is on the bushes outside instead of your brand new shirt, or freshly cleaned carpet. Of course, you have to congratulate them on doing their cool tricks because how cute is it when they do a paw shake or roll over?!!

2. Talking with your dogs and responding to them

We all need someone to talk to every once in awhile, and a dog makes the perfect companion. When we need to cry it out or let out all of our anger your little pup is there whenever you need them. Then, because they can't respond to you it is easy to make a response to them which makes you just feel better in the end.

3. Anytime your dog gets sick you immediately research the web

There is nothing worse in a dog owners life when your little fur baby is not feeling well, and you want to make them feel better as soon as possible so that they can go back to being playful. It is like WebMD except you do it for your dog, and search their symptoms that lead you to think that they are going to die if they don't get better soon.

4. Talking in a funny voice just to see if they do the head tilt

Need I say more? Pretty much every dog owner thinks it's hilarious to see their dog do the famous head tilt after talking to them in the most insane and ridiculous voice.

5. Thought about dressing them up or actually even did

I never did this because my dog cannot stand putting those little dog clothes on, but doesn't mean I haven't thought about dressing her in a cute, little, pink tutu.

6. "Accidentally" pushed table scraps onto the floor or sneak them a piece of bacon

I am 100% guilty of this. This isn't necessarily weird, but something that all dog owners do. Every time I am eating at the kitchen table my dog will sit right by the chair with her big eyes, and give me that look acting like she is so hungry-- I fall for it every single time. How can you say no to their little faces?! If you do end up saying no you might even feel a little guilty inside so then you give them a treat anyway.

7. Taking selfies or pictures of your dog

As dog owners, we always try to get that perfect picture, and you do some ridiculous things to try and do so. Things like saying their name about 20 times, snapping, waving your hands around--essentially how you get a baby to look at the camera except you're dealing with an animal.

8. Pet them with your feet more than your hands

We've all done it.

9. Give your dog nicknames

"Sweetie", "Cutie", "Tawnypoo", "Bellz", and so much more.

10. Refer to yourself as "mommy" or "daddy"

This is completely respectable among dog owners because we totally get it they're your kids. Sayings such as, "Who's the best mommy in the world?" or "You love your daddy".

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
