Things I Learned From My Dog

A (wo)man's best friend

Things I Learned From My Dog

1. Grandpas are even more special than you thought

For some reason dogs absolutely love grandpas. They can smell them coming from a mile away. My dog loves my grandpa more than she loves my mom (who feeds her), which I think says something.

2. Cats are evil

Cats are enemies. That's what my dog says. What she says goes.

3. Pay the most attention to those who care for you the most

My mom is the one that normally feeds my dog and gives her her medicine. She cares more for my mom than she cares about anyone else in my family. If there's anything I learned from that, it's that you should care for those who care about you, not the ones who don't put any effort in.

4. It's actually their house…. Not yours.

Furniture has been moved and gates have been put in to accommodate her. Modifications have been made to make her happy and comfortable. It's her house.

5. You deserve a treat

You have accomplished something today, even if it feels like you haven't. You deserve something that makes you happy.

6. Really tall people are a little bit scary sometimes

My dog is a little bit nervous around anyone above 6'2. Should I be scared of them too? (just kidding)

7. A smile goes a long way

Have you ever seen a dog smile? It is the most heartwarming thing ever. But that doesn't just apply to dogs, smiling humans are a happy thing too.

8. Everyone is friendly until proven otherwise

My dog is friendly to everyone she doesn't know. She wags her tail and goes up to everyone. She doesn't judge a book by its cover, so to speak, and neither should you.

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

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.
