The day I got my dog

When I was 5 years old, my family had been thinking about getting a pet. They thought about a cat, but my mom has allergies and they would scratch up furniture, so no. My dad had been looking at dogs for a while, I found this out because whenever I walked by my dad would be on a dog website. Then during my first summer break, my parents told me we were getting a dog. I wasn’t too surprised due to the fact of how much they talked about dogs, but I was happy nonetheless. So we hopped in the car and drove to a place called Ari’s. I couldn’t contain my excitement, I thought of how I could play with he/she and pet he/she. When we arrived, I heard multiple dogs barking. Then stepped out the man himself, Ari. My dad asked to go to the bulldog section. My mom and I stayed with the other dogs until my dad asked me to come over, so we did. My dad picked up a very excited Old English Bulldog and my god was he cute. He didn’t have a name, my parents asked me to name him. I thought about it, and said rubble. The reason I picked this name was because the name was from a bulldog from the show, Paw Patrol. Ari said that that was a great name. He said rubble was born on July third, I was born on July 11. That’s how I met my dog.

    Are you biased and making assumptions? 

    These are trick questions. Of course, you are. We all make assumptions, mostly subconsciously and automatically. They are mental shortcuts for our brains to help us learn and navigate the endless complexities of social interaction and decision-making in life. Assumptions are based on our past experiences or cultural influences, and Because they are different, we…

    The rat race starts young now! And it’s easy to get caught up in it.  As a parent of college-bound teens, I live the frenzy that often results from students (and parents) thinking that the rest of their lives are dictated by their college acceptance letters. High-achieving teens aim, at the very minimum, to maintain…
