I’m 23 years old and I’m tired of people asking me, “When are you having kids? Do you want to have kids? You should have kids!” I am so far from being finished with school, sharing one car, struggling with bills, and a crappy low paying job. I don’t plan on having kids for a very long time, is it so wrong to have dogs? I love my dog! I think she’s better than a kid. I don’t give anybody with children grief so I don’t understand why it’s such a stigma that I’m a 23 year old woman who has no aspirations of starting a family. I love my dog, I like cuddling with dogs, I’m just a dog person. Kids are okay, I don’t hate them I just don’t think I’m ready for a family.

Jesus. Leave me alone!
