12 Reasons Why I Couldn't Live Without My Mom

I don't know what I would do without you.

12 Reasons Why I Couldn't Live Without My Mom
Sierra Abbott

There is one thing in this world that I know I couldn’t survive without: my mom. She has been my go-to person since before I even came out of the womb. I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. She is the one constant in my life, and I will forever be thankful for her. I may act like I know it all, but I couldn’t do anything without my mom. I may be an “adult,” but I will never not need my mom.

1. She answers my stupid questions.

What medicine should I take? Are you sure I’m not dying? Is it okay to wash this shirt with these pants? Is this normal? No matter how strange or random the question is, she will always answer my questions.

2. She supports my dreams.

No matter how crazy or impossible my dreams are, she will always support my dreams. Nobody else in the world believes in me more than she does. As long as I have her constant support, I believe that I can achieve anything I set my mind to.

3. She gives me advice.

The time of day won't matter; If I need my mom she will be there, ready to help. She is the only one that has been there through every heartbreak and every victory and I know she will always have the perfect advice for me.

4. She is my No. 1 cheerleader.

My mom will always be my No. 1 cheerleader. She sat through every choir concert, every award ceremony, every musical and every game, cheering me on.

5. She lets me “borrow” her clothes.

I am lucky to have a mom who wears the same size as me and is super stylish. I might “borrow” clothes and forget to give them back, but she still lets me “borrow” whatever I want inside her closet even if it never returns.

6. She works hard for me.

My mom is such a hard worker. She works every day and I don’t tell her enough how much I appreciate her and all she does for me.

7. She sends me care packages.

Being away from home is extremely difficult. Luckily, my mom knows how to make me feel special even if we're two hours apart from each other. Every time I see a care package from her I smile and can feel her love.

8. She lets me call her 20 times a day.

Even though she has her own life, she answers my very frequent phone calls at any time of the day. She is always there to talk to me when I feel alone or just when I want someone to talk to.

9. She shaped me into the person I am today.

I wouldn’t be who I am today without my mom. She raised me to be a woman of character and I am so thankful that she instilled important values in me from a young age.

10. She spoils me.

I am definitely spoiled by my mom. I don’t deserve it, but she always does anyway.

11. She is my role model.

My mom is someone that I look up to. She is an amazing woman, and I am so lucky to have a great role model like her.

12. She loves me unconditionally

My mom loves me when I succeed, fail, mess up, win, lose and everything in between. There is nothing I could do that would make her love me less. I am so thankful for her constant love and support. I would be lost without her.

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.
