I Treat My Cat As An Actual Person — It's OK You Can Judge Me

He has intensely watched "How to Get Away With Murder" with me, but don't worry I don't think he will take what he has learned and apply it.

I Treat My Cat As An Actual Person — It's OK You Can Judge Me
Casey Whoolery-Pratt

Y'all can judge me all you want, but my cat is my best friend. If anyone understands my struggles and when I'm sad it's him. He doesn't even need to say anything to make me feel better. So, yes, I consider my cat to be a human alongside me and I'm not embarrassed. There are just a few activities that he and I do together that makes us the best team in town, here they are:

He and I love to eat popcorn, chips, cheese, and french fries together after a long day of stress. Before all you animal fanatics hop on here and say anything bad about feeding my cat human food, yall can take a chill pill because he only gets a small fraction of the piece I am eating.

He loves binging Netflix shows until the early morning hours on a weekday with me, too. The best part is, he won't (can't) yell at me that sleep is more important. He has intensely watched How to Get Away With Murder from start to finish, but don't worry I don't think he will take what he has learned and apply it.

He is a great personal alarm clock. It will be 6 in the morning and he will come to lay on my face to suffocate me in order to get me up. Is it frustrating? Yes. Do I care that he does this? Yes. Does he care that he does this? Clearly not.

He is the best kind of friendship to have too because I can talk about my problems and he will just listen and not tell me that I am wrong. I love this part. He may be judging me, but he doesn't tell me he is.

Needless to say, this post makes me seem like a crazy cat lady, but in reality, I just appreciate having a cat because he is the only one that puts up with my venting. Quite honestly, I am 100% okay with that.

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.
