12 Signs You're Turning Into Your Mother

Let's face it, you are your mother's daughter.

12 Signs You're Turning Into Your Mother
Hollywood Reporter

People always told me, “One day you’re going to wake up, look in the mirror, and say to yourself, ‘I am my mother.’” Rolling my eyes (and casually glancing in the nearest mirror), it used to be easy to reply, “Please, that day will never come.” Well, it did, but the emotions I expected to feel never arose. Instead of dread because of premature aging or embarrassment stemming from motherly qualities, I was proud. Proud and excited. Proud, excited, and honored to have the opportunity to be even half as incredible as my mom. May we all stand together and embrace the ways in which our mothers shape us, determining to touch others the way they have touched us.

1. You’ve become the mom of your friend group.

2. You talk to those younger than you the way your mom talks to you.

3. When people can guess who your mom is the first time they meet you.

4. You both have the same hairstyle.

5. You start to borrow your mother’s clothes and dress similarly.

6. People greet you both with, “You two look like sisters!”

7. You sound identical on the phone.

8. The fact that you’ve adopted her sayings from the ‘80s doesn’t help.

9. You’ve started to hang around her friends just as much as your own.

10. You preface every piece of advice with, “My mom told me once …”

11. You tell everyone she’s your best friend.

12. You appreciate her more than ever before.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Aside from the great hits like "Dreams," "Linger," and "Zombie," you may not know many other songs by "The Cranberries."

United Nations Day 2023: Understanding The U.N.

As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101

Multiple countries flags on poles

For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members, and what better day to do that than United Nations Day (today!). So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations:
