Since When Are Pet Resumes A Thing?

Why you may need one and how to go about creating one for your furry friend.


So I must have been under a rock, but I just learned about pet resumes! Yep, you read that right. Your pet needs a resume too these days.

There seems to be a new trend on the rise in renting out places to live these days, and that's a pet resume. Apparently, it's a hassle to find an affordable and nice apartment these days that allows pets. By having a pet resume handy, your ready for the next potential landlord who may ask for one.

So, what goes on the resume? How do you make a glowing showcase of your pet on a sheet of paper?

1. Start with the basics.

Seriously? Yes!


You'll want to include the following:

Pets name




Proof of vaccinations

Disclosure of any incidents

Current photo

2. Vet? References? 


References are also great to have, but may not help. Instead of reference letters, add your vet's contact information and any former landlords who can verify what an amazingly well behaved pet you have.

3. Smile, you’re on camera!


Don't forget to showcase your pets personality. You know what that means? PICTURES!

4. Show off their hobbies!


And how great they are.

5. Don’t forget skills. 


because you know it takes a lot of concentration.

6. Favorite things are important too. 


Cuddles are always cute. Whether with yourself or other animals.

7. I cannot stress it enough about how important it is to have good photos of your furry friend.


Showcase a healthy, happy, playful side of your pet and you're sure to put a smile on the landlords face.

When in doubt, always ask a professional. You'd be surprised that there are some fairly inexpensive templates out there to guide you and your furbaby to you're new home in no time!

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.

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.
