They love you more than humans do to be honest.

Why Dogs Are The Best Pets To Have

Many of us are animal lovers, but some of us are truly dog lovers. I know I'm a dog lover. Almost any dog I see I have to pet it or talk to it or something of that nature. I've been surrounded by dogs as long as I can remember. I grew up with Duke, a German Shepherd and Rottweiler mix, and Luke, a Chow Chow. After they passed on, I grew up with Jazmin. I got her in second grade, and I fell in love with her even though she chased me around the yard and house nonstop. Jazmin is Great Dane, German Shepherd, and Boxer, and I still have her to this day. Once I got to middle school, my friend Brooke Massey gave me Oliver who we named after Oliver Oken from Hannah Montana. Oliver is Shih Tzu mixed with Australian Shepherd, and he's basically my mom's dog now. My roommate has a dog too named Diamond who's a Chihuahua mixed with Pekinese. I know all of these dogs and I'm happy to be around them, but what makes dogs the best pet?

1. They cuddle with you when you have no cuddle buddy.

Your boo doesn't want to come over? Fine. You have your dog to cuddle with.

2. They will eat with you whenever.

They'll be your snack buddy after school or your late night meal partner. They're always down.

3. They'll be your workout partner.

Trying to stay in shape? Your dog's down to stay in shape with you.

4. They are super protective, no matter what size they are.

Big or small, let somebody mess with you. Your dog will tear them up, or attempt to anyways.

5. They love you when nobody else does.

Don't worry, your dog loves you no matter how ugly or cute you are.

6. They feel your emotions.

They know when you're sad, heartbroken, joyful, and tired. Dogs feel the same emotions as you.

7. They keep your deepest, darkest secrets.

I mean, they can't talk. Who are they going to tell your secrets to? Their dog friends?

8. They are always there for you when you think nobody else is.

If nobody has your back, know your dog is always down to ride for you.

9. There are different breeds to fit your living style.

If you're allergic to something or you want a small dog for a family or a big dog for outside, there's definitely a dog out there for you. There are literally tons of breeds to choose from.

10. They are adorable. You can't deny it.

No, seriously. You can't deny it. They are super cute.

I am so blessed to have Oliver and Jazmin, and my cute puppy niece Diamond in my life. They're beautiful animals with so much personality and they bring such joy to my day whenever I get a chance to see them. Dogs are amazing creatures that can love you more than any human can. If you treat them with respect, they will love you forever. If you have a dog or puppy or any type of animal, cherish and love them. I promise you they'll love you ten times more. If you want a dog, you can always check your local pet adoption centers or shelters. You could also foster puppies! There are tons of dogs out there waiting to be loved by you.

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.
