I Am Totally Obsessed With My Dogs
Bethany Newell

When we move out of the house, we miss a lot of things. We miss our parents, our own showers, our kitchen, and also our pets. Over the first two months of my sophomore year, I have been fairly homesick. I missed my dogs.

I miss my dogs because they are the only constant happy things in life. Dogs are really special that way! They love without questions and without hesitation. No matter what I look like, or smell like they will lick my face until their hearts are content. Every single time I come in the door, they are ready to play and love me, even if I have only been away for a matter of minutes.

They are always ready for some fun, but they also like lying around just the same. Usually, they are always ready to cuddle, and even like to cuddle on top of me! They are the best of a blanket and a pet!

So, when my parents text me pictures of my dogs, I am not ashamed to say that I get a little teary eyed. They just make me so happy! They make me happy because they are always happy.

They are so encouraging! They love to be active even when I feel like a lazy bum. So, when I am at school, it takes some extra effort to get myself out of bed and into the gym or on a running path.

But, even if I miss my dogs, I know that I will always be able to see them in a few short hours if absolutely necessary. They will always accept me with a wet tongue and a warm body of love.

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.
