The Truth About Pit Bulls

From a pit bull owner herself.

The Truth About Pit Bulls
Alyssa Stolecki

It is a common misconception that pit bulls are dangerous, untrustworthy dogs. This is one of the most unfortunate stereotypes I have heard because since I've adopted a pit bull, I've gotten to experience the most pure type of love there is.

All dogs love and accept their care takers for who they are, therefore all types of dogs are deserving of equal love and care. Pit bulls should not be thought of as less than any other breed just because of a few negative stories. Through my experience with my pit bull puppy, I'll try to unveil the truth about the breed.

1. Above everything else, they love to cuddle.

Don't be surprised when they jump up onto your bed and get as close as they can to you.

2. They have the cutest smiles.

Isn't that the happiest dog you've ever seen?!

3. They are extremely loyal.

They will sit outside of your door and wait for you to get home. (Who knows what she'll do when I go back to college).

4. They love to attack people with kisses.

This is as aggressive as it gets.

5. They are always seeking adventure.

Whether its dressing up for a special occasion or crawling under spaces where they know they cannot fit, they will certainly be up for it.

6. They love their toys.

If this thing isn't being carried around in her mouth, it's right by her side. Not to mention she has it in three different colors.

7. They are deserving of the greatest affection.

And I am positive that from the moment we adopted her, she started receiving the best love of all. And we're so grateful for the love she gives to us every day!

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.

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.
