- You Don’t Get the Dog That You Want, You Get the Dog That You Need
So you’ve decided it’s time to get a puppy. Excellent, for thousands of years the dog has been a companion, a friend, a guardian and a laborer for man.

Some make good pets for families living in small apartments...
Winter 2014. The Thin sheet Below me and the Thin sheet covering me do next to nothing to keep the cold out. But yet despite the weather the tiredness of my body always overcomes and allows me to sleep eventually. I look around and the lines and lines of people with the same two sheets, most have already drifted off into the only escape they can get while few like me take the small amount of thinking time we get before we make our escape as well. I shift my view to the ceiling wishing that someb...

Love is an emotion that a person feels inside his heart. People can love their partner; in addition, they can also love their friends. However, if a person were asked to choose whom they loved best, the majority would say they loved their partners more. When comparing love in this way, it would be conceivable that love can be measured. The same can be comparable to our children. While loving other family members, if we had to make a choice, we would undoubtedly choose our children.

The thawing of Northern Europe resulted in a warmer, rainier, ice-free condition. This changed the envir...

- A scene from my life.
For a while, back when we were in the ninth grade, I thought that he liked me. In the mornings before school, as I waited for the first bell to ring so we could go to class, he used to stand nearby and flirt with me. Or at least I think he was flirting. He\'d keep glancing my way, looking at me but at the same time pretending not to. It was kind of funny, really. Once or twice, I stared back at him. I guess if he really did like me, he would have said something or made a move. Back then, I proba...
