To The Best Friend I'll Never Forget

You may be gone, but your memory will be with me forever.

To The Best Friend I'll Never Forget
Alyssa Pallmeyer

The love you have for a pet is like no other. Pets are there for you when no one else is. They love you unconditionally no matter what and make sure to greet with the happiest of greetings. But what happens when their time on this earth is over? It's hard to cope with and realize that the best friend you wanted to live life with forever cannot.

Losing my cat, Ruben, this past week really hit me hard. He has been with my family since 2003, and everyone who met him has loved him unconditionally. He was the sweetest, kindest, and most caring cat I ever met. Something about a pet creates a special bond that can't be found with another person.

He always knew when I was angry or upset and made sure he was there to comfort me. He would purr in my face and make sure that I pet him which really helped me more than him. his love and affection always overpowered any other thing that I was feeling or any problem that came my way.

Pets are always there to listen. Whenever something was on my mind, I knew I could talk to him and he would listen. Just by getting my thoughts out there helped me work through whatever was on my mind.

When it came to sleeping, he was there to nestle in to the crook of my leg or share my pillow.

Knowing when to put a pet out of their pain is a hard pill to swallow. While the most important thing is that they are living a happy and healthy life, if their condition of life is compromised, it is not fair for them to still suffer. Coming to terms with not only knowing they aren't healthy, but that their time with you is coming to an end is hard to process.

No matter the timeline, the days or years spend with your pet will never be forgotten. They were nothing but good times and remember that your pet will always know how much you loved them and that you made them the happiest pet ever. Just because they aren't with you physically anymore, their memory will stay with you forever.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
