11 Times When I Realized That I'm Turning Into My Mother

Who said that's a bad thing?

11 Times When I Realized That I'm Turning Into My Mother

We've all had those moments where we think to ourselves, "Wow, I just sounded like my mother!" Then, we start to develop some of those motherly habits. From that point on, there's really no stopping it. You're turning into your mother and it's time to accept it.

1. I force my friends to text me when they've gotten home safely.

As annoyed as my friends might be by this, it makes me feel better to know that they're safe.

2. At sporting events, I turn into that obnoxious fan while cheering on my friends and siblings.

If everyone around you can't hear you, then they definitely can't hear you on the field.

3. I keep up with the latest neighborhood gossip.

Although I do hear the gossip from my mother, I'm the first one who my friends from home come to when they're wondering what's going on at home.

4. My purse is filled with tissues, bobby pins, and various other emergency items.

I always wondered how my mom fit all of that stuff in her purse, but then I got the magic touch too.

5. I've started borrowing clothes from my mother's closet.

After all, I did receive my fashion sense from my mom.

6. I've started constantly correcting people's grammar.

"Can I go to the bathroom?"

"I don't know, can you?"

7. I've started using some of my favorite mom-phrases.

There are a million phrases that moms say all the time. My favorite phrase that my mother always says is, "That's what you get for thinking when you're not used to it."

8. I even find myself using the phrase "kids these days" frequently.

As if I'm not still a kid, myself. 19 is technically still a teenager.

9. I'd rather stay in while watching my favorite TV show than go out.

My friends all know it to be true. I'd rather stay in than go out on pretty much any night.

10. I've developed that distinctly disappointed look.

It's that look that all moms have. Somehow, they don't have to say anything and you know that you did something wrong.

11. I try to look for the positive in bad situations.

One of the most important things that my mom ever taught me was to look for the positives in situations. Yeah, maybe that person is acting like a you-know-what, but maybe there's more to the story.

Everything that I am today, I owe to my mother. Some people may think that it's a bad thing to be turning into their mothers, but I couldn't be prouder. If I'm half the person who my mother is today, then I'll be ecstatic.

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.

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.
