Why I Have Come To Accept My Life As A Crazy Cat Lady

Being a crazy cat lady has two requirements: owning a cat and obsessing over said cat. It is totally fine though, you have to have some sort of obsession in life. Mine just happens to be cats and the fluffier, the better. As a child, I used to dress my cats up in doll clothes and giggle at them uncontrollably as they uncomfortably stumbled around the house.

The craziness continued into my teenage years and my boyfriend adopted a kitten for me, which only fueled my insanity more. My Snapchat stories and camera roll are filled with pictures of them and people constantly ask if I ever do anything else. I cannot wait to come home every day and squeeze their cute little bodies but fear not.. they are never hurt.

My high fashion sense includes a couple pairs of cat socks and every single pair of black leggings cannot escape the cat fur trap. My Facebook newsfeed is entirely full of cat videos that my friends tag me in, which is a great pick-me-up after a long day of class. Not a day goes by without sending someone a picture of my cat, doing something incredibly cute, and I am not ashamed.

My dad once was talking about things he would pass down to my kids but then retracted the statement realizing I was destined to be a cat mom. I was the girl on the plane with a kitten sitting on the seat next to her as if he was my child. Getting a kitten of my own was definitely a good idea. The second my boyfriend sees this I know he will say “I told you so!" I was nervous at first wondering how I was going to afford another mouth to feed and because I am not always home but it has all worked out. Since I go to school far from home, he is purrrfect company when I am lonely ( as he is currently asleep on my back while I write) and I love him to death.

Even though doing homework has become more of a challenge thanks to my cat sitting on my laptop at inconvenient times, I am confident and proud of my cat lady status.

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.
