My mom is my best friend and has been since day one. I never realized how much she did for me until I was on my own. I thought that I would barely call home when I left, but I find myself calling my mom 1-2 times a day for advice and everything in between. Luckily when I am struggling with the real world she's only a phone call away...

1) When you're craving something she makes and have no idea how to cook it.

2) When you have $0 to your name.

3) When you look something up on WebMD and all signs point to you dying.

4) When you're having a mental breakdown.

5) When you have no one else to rant to.

6) When you receive paperwork and realize you know nothing about being an adult.

7) When you're looking for some praise.

8) When you get a good grade on a test.

9) When you don't know what questions to ask at the doctor's office.

I love you, Mom, thanks for always being here for me!

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Growing up I always thought I was different than my mom. Now that I am older, everyone says I look like my mom and now I am beginning to think I even act like her now as well. I guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, right?

1. I always go to the sales rack FIRST in a store.

Why get your hopes up on something full price when you can be excited about something for half the price.

2. I am passionate about mental health.

Because in the end, all you got is yourself! Prioritize and take care of yourself, it's good for you.

3. I LOVE animals

I care too much about them and if I could, I would adopt every animals I see and give it all the love in the world.

4. We are both overly helpful

I am always offering a place to stay for my friends who just need to get away for a bit.

5. The time I was driving and had to brake suddenly so I did the "mom arm"

You know, when your Mom throws her arm in front of you and acts like you don't have a seatbelt on.

6. I happen to know where my friends or boyfriend left their phone

Instead of "Mom, I can't find my phone" it is now "Raven, do you know where I put my phone?"

7. I walk around and turn the lights off and then complain about electricity.

"Why do we have these lights on, we are on the opposite side of the house?!"

8. Going to a nice restaurant and thinking I can make a better dish at home & cheaper

Thanks Mom

9. The moment I realized I have a bag full of bags full of bags

I can't seem to think of an answer to why I have so many bags.

10. When I had to turn the music down in the car so I could think in a busy parking lot

There was too much going on... I think?
