10 Reasons Why My Mom Is My Best Friend
Kelley Long

My mom is the most amazing person I know; there’s not a single person in the world who has a heart like hers. There is no possible way I would be the person I am today (and frankly, not be lost or freezing somewhere) without her love and support. I know I don’t tell her enough, so here are 10 reasons why my mom is my best friend.

1. She lets me send her memes in school.

I'm pretty sure that having a mom who actually responds to your punny texts and jokes during school (and who actually pretends to find them funny) is the coolest thing-- I love being able to share things that make me laugh with my mom.

2. She always knows when I need some comfort food.

I’m a pescatarian by choice. But when I have an awful day sometimes the only thing that can cure it is a big bowl of orange chicken or some ice cream. I’m blessed with a mom who comes with me to eat both.

3.She drives me EVERYWHERE.


I'm a busy girl. I run three varsity sports and am a member of multiple clubs and honor societies. There are a lot of places I need to be, and somehow my mom always finds time and the willingness to get me there. She never complains and she even lets me blast my showtunes on the way there.

4. She lets me vent.

God only knows that I vent an incredible amount. My mother has the patience of a saint and always lets me say everything I’m feeling. Whether I’m complaining about the girl who made fun of the way I looked that day or the test that I just bombed, she’s there to listen and let me cry.

5. She gives the best advice.

This one goes along with number four. Somehow, my mom always knows exactly what to say, not just to make me feel better but to help me actually solve my problems. I’m pretty sure she has some sort of super power that doesn’t allow her to be wrong about anything. Ever.

6. She's always supportive of me trying new things.

My mom is the one who encourages me to apply for new and exciting programs and opportunities. She gently pushes me to take risks and put myself out there for things that I wouldn’t ordinarily consider. She even supported my major transition to become a pescatarian this summer, which was definitely a new challenge that I never could’ve handled all by myself.

7. She tells it like it is.

Sometimes, someone needs to draw the line and just tell you you’re being crazy. My mom knows exactly how to balance honesty with kindness so that she can help me see reason, even when the world seems like it’s ending.

8. She is always kind.

I have never ever heard or seen my mom be anything other than completely kind and selfless. She has a heart of gold and she even takes care of total strangers. She does so much good for the people around her and is always seeking ways to serve others.

9. She's there for me whenever I need her.

There hasn’t been a single time in my life where I needed my mom and she wasn’t there. I don’t know what I would do without her constant support and love.

10. She loves me unconditionally.

I’ve never met someone like my mom. She is selfless, kind, patient, and constant, even when I’m being horrible and bratty. No matter what I do, she always hugs me and tells me it’s okay, and that kind of love amazes me.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
