3 Reasons My Mom is My Best Friend
No Worries

My mom is my best friend, my biggest fan, my expert advice-giver, my shopping partner, my most recently called, my favorite comedian, my sounding board, my rock, and my hero. And, March 21st is her birthday :) Happy Birthday Mom!

1) My mom helps me reset my perspective.

My mom is always able to reset my perspective about things, and help me reconsider from a different angle. Whenever I find myself in a rough situation, I go to her for advice, and for a reassessment. She has this magic way of being able to step back from the situation and be reasonable about things no matter how personal or upsetting it might be, and that is something that I will always admire about her. She is one of the few people who can completely understand me, and is able to help me shift my perspective about schools things, social dilemmas, life dilemmas, and even minuscule problems.

2) She Always Knows Exactly What To Say.

My mom is a grammar enthusiast, and we are able to poke fun at poor grammar together. We both have a somewhat dark sense of humor, and tend to be unintentionally blunt about things. But, no matter what, my mom always finds the words to say. When I need to know how to get out of a tricky situation, she always comes up with creative ways that I couldn't imagine on my own.Whenever I have something going on in my life, she is always there with the rights words of advice that help me move forward and thrive. She is extremely diplomatic in all situations, and has an exquisite vocabulary.

3) She Understands Me So Much That I Think We Are Telepathic.

My mom understands me more than anyone, and that is a feeling better than anything else in the world. She knows that sometimes I need to be alone to reflect, she knows that I like my cake without icing, she knows that I don't like the feeling of denim, she knows that I am a homebody at heart, she knows that sometimes I require chocolate chip cookies for inspiration, she knows me so precisely that it's scary. My mom and I can finish each other's sentences, and think on the same wavelength most of the time. My mom knows my habits, necessities, true passions, phobias, and feelings at any given time. So, thank you to my mom who knows me better than I know myself.

My mom is a strong, and outspoken woman who I admire so very much. I am grateful everyday to have a woman like her to look up to, and I don't think that any other mom would've made the cut. My mom is an angel sent from heaven, and I am endlessly thankful for her. So, here's to the best gal on the planet, my mom.

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.
