5 Unique Pets You Might Want To Own


1. Chinchilla


I can give you the rundown on chinchillas because I have two of them. These little guys are so much fun. They each have their own personality, and are crazy. Most of the time they have to stay in a cage, however, because if they get loose it is really hard to catch them. But as long as you have a good hold of them whenever they are out of the cage, they usually won't try to run away from you. They are pretty low-maintenance pets.

2. Wallaby


A wallaby is literally my dream pet. Imagine playing around at the park or on your college campus with a miniature freaking kangaroo. From what I have heard, they act just like dogs most of the time, but require a little bit more care than dogs and cats.

3. Hedgehog


I also know a little bit about this pet because my cousin brought his down during Christmas. It wouldn't be my ideal pet, since it isn't that cuddly. It might look the part, but the quills are actually pretty prickly. They also can get annoyed pretty easily, but once they warm up to you they can be fun to play with.

4. Sugar Glider


These things are so cool. If you wouldn't have to clean the cages all the time I would try to sneak one on campus with me. They seem to sound a lot like chinchilla care, pretty low maintenance, but they aren't going to just hang out with you like a dog, they'll probably want to run around and glide.

5. Capybara


How cool would it be to have your giant hamster greet your guests at the door when they come over for dinner. The big problem with owning a Capybara is that you would have to have two. Apparently they don't do well alone. Also, you would have to have an outdoor enclosure. If you have the space for it though, they would be a freaking awesome pet.

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.

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.
