13 Signs You're The Loyal Mom Of Your Friend Group
Sami Newland

You probably already know who I'm talking about in your own friend group. The slightly overprotective but very well-intentioned friend who seems to be your mom away from your mom. Despite the fact that they are in college, their lifestyle may follow habits more akin to a 40-something-year-old woman. They constantly look out for their friends and always seem to have an extra granola bar in their pocket.

Does this sound like you? Here are 13 signs that you have become the matriarch of your friend group:

1. You are the designated driver more often than not.

At this point, with the number of drunk people you haul around, you might as well invest in a mini van.

2. You constantly lose hair ties in drunk girls’ hair.

And at this point you’re immune to the stench of puke.

3. You always force your friends to send you a text the second they get home...and stay up in anxiety until they do.

Drop me your pin right now and if you don’t text me back in three minutes I’m hitting the streets.

4. You love hosting and cooking food for your friends.

Are you hungry? Are you thirsty? Can I get you a snack? No? I made hummus! And cookies! Take some leftovers.

5. You celebrate your friends' accomplishments more than you celebrate your own.

Also, their birthday is more exciting than yours.

6. You remind your friends to do their homework.

And for some reason when they have seven pages left to write in one night you’re the one who is stressed out.

7. And to not go to bed too late.

8. And to bring a jacket.

Although you usually have at least two extra cardigans in the trunk of your car you're constantly loaning out just in case.

9. You fill your shelves with snacks you don’t actually like but you know your friends do.

Seriously, I didn't even know stores still carried Ritz Bitz, but if my friends love them, I will find them.

10. You are everyone’s therapist.

You stop mental breakdowns on the daily and are always on call.

11. You never forget when someone mistreats your friends.

“Oh, you’re going on a date with George? Um, don’t you remember that time he looked at you weird in the seventh grade and you were stressed about it for like two hours? No, It doesn’t matter that that was eight years ago, you deserve better.”

12. You respond to the word “mom.”

You may be at the point where passing a playground can cause an identity crisis.

13. You actually have a fully stocked medicine cabinet.

And none of the medicine is expired. You're basically running a hospital.

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.
