The Story Of How My Mom Became My Best Friend

Thank you for everything

The Story Of How My Mom Became My Best Friend

In highschool my mom and I fought constantly. I was always doing the complete opposite of anything she said, and she would always do her best to discipline me. How rude, right? Anyway, we didn't always see eye-to-eye and honestly we often couldn't stay in the same room for long without fighting about something.

Once my senior year rolled around, we were too busy with extra curricular activities to give us anything to fight about. When I went to college was when I realized I took advantage of her always being there to help me. I remember the first time I got sick in college I had to list out all my symptoms for her to tell me what kind of medicine I needed to get.

I don't know why, but freshman year anytime I would be walking to class or from my parking garage to the dorms I would always call her. I would do this out of boredom, but I think this sparked actual conversation for us to catch up with each other. We would often just talk about random things that in the moment didn't matter, but over time we would talk about the big important stuff.

I now talk to my mom every day and I tell her everything significant in my life. Instead of fighting over the big stuff, she will give me her opinion on what I should do and let me make the final decision myself. She is the person I go to for advice, the person I rant to, and the person I care about most in my life.

She shows me what is worth getting upset about and helps me realize when I am being irrational about things. So thank you mom for everything you do for me.

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.

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.
