My Dog Is My Best Friend

They didn't lie when they said dogs are a man's best friend.

My Dog Is My Best Friend

Growing up I have had several different dogs of all breeds. Each one has had a special place in my heart, whether it was my first puppy named Pickles, or my new puppy named Rooster. (As you can tell we are creative with names.;) Every dog has their own personality and as the years pass you become closer with each other as if it were a human. You learn to do almost everything with them, just like going to the park, taking a nap, or even going for a drive. They will consistently be down for whatever, as long as you are around. I don't know about you, but I think that that is one of the greatest qualities for a best friend.

After a long hard day at work, school, or whatever that may be, you can always rely on your dog to be there for you. Even at your worst, your dog is just as excited to see you when you get home. There are days that I have come home looking like I got hit by a bus and my dogs still see me the same. No matter how hard my day is, I can always look forward to coming home and seeing my pups to cheer me up. With the attitude I come home with sometimes, I'm surprised my dogs still like me. Their unconditional love never seizes to amaze me. I find myself talking to my dogs more than I probably should. Throughout all the things my dogs have seen or heard, I can definitely say that they come with no judgement.

There hasn't been a time that I don't want my dogs around me. Although they do get annoying at times, I still love them regardless. Even as I write this Rooster is laying too close for comfort, but as cute as he is I don't have the heart to move him.

At the end of the day, I love my dogs as if they are my family, and I hope you do too. Maybe after reading this you will take them on a walk, they deserve it after all.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
