Why Cats are the Best

Who can resist the adorable face and fluffy paws of a cat? Sure dogs are known to claim the title of man's best friend but cats are the ultimate companion. Myself and other feline lovers can go on and on about the wonders of cats. Kittens truly bring joy to any family. I could not imagine my life without these fuzzy friends, even when they wake me up early or decided to chew on my homework.

8. Small Size

Most cats do not take up much space like bigger dogs. So if you have little kids running around they can't get pushed over or be timid around these animals. Also, cat will always fit perfectly in your lap.

7. Cats are reliable

Whenever you are having a bad day, cats are the perfect listener. They are wonderful at comforting you in your time of need. It is impossible not to smile when holding one tight.

6. Unique Language

When it comes to communication, the unique thing about cat is each one has a different meow, purr, and even some strange noises. Every cat owner has found themselves talking out loud to their cat, because we seem to understand exactly what they mean. Hearing them purr as they fall asleep is music to the ears.

5. Their Humor

Cats are definitely one of the most diverse species in the animal kingdom. Sometimes they are perceived as lazy and unmotivated but I have watched my cats try to squeeze into tiny boxes and chase after crows that are outside the window. They can get extremely playful and hyper. I cannot help but laugh when they slide across the floor trying to chase a tiny red laser beam.

4. The Look

Ah yes, every family with a cat has experienced the look of despair. This facial expression might appear shortly after you give your cat tiny kisses or your kids try and play dress up with the cat. They seem to be plotting their revenge, possibly by assassinating you while you sleep. However, we all know it is in good fun, especially once we feed them. All is forgiven.

3. The Paws

Of course I have to make this its own point. Their paws are just so holdable (despite cats hating that) and the underside is so squishy and adorable. Some cats are even known to have a mutation that gives them extra toes. They are known as polydactyls. It makes their paws ten times cuter!

2. Lack of Dirt

Unlike dogs, cats are not likely to roll in the mud or jump into puddles. They are self sufficient and prefer to be well groomed. This makes maintenance a whole lot easier for pet owners.

1. They are Healers

Cats have a natural curiosity and attraction when it comes to humans. When you bring them to hospitals, schools, or nursing homes they bring great comfort to others. It can really brighten someones day to interact with these magnificent creatures. Being happier can have a positive effect on someone's health.

Overall, cats are glorious animals with an interesting nature and loveable features. Life is always more exciting when you own a cat or two. They become a part of your personality, cat lovers are very adaptable and full of joy. Cats truly are the purr-fect pet.

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.

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.
