Appreciate your second mom.

5 Things You Forgot To Thank Your Best Friend's Mom For

Having a best friend comes with having a second mom, one that takes care of you when you're away from home. They treat you like a child of their own, but how many times have you thanked them for it?

1. Hosting all the sleepovers

I know the last way you wanted to spend your Friday night was taking us to the movies, and then losing sleep because of One Direction blaring and our obnoxious laughter late at night. But you did it without question and I admire you for that.

2. For accepting me into your family

You always make me feel welcome in your home, and I feel as comfortable with your family as I do with mine (even though that's not always a good thing).

3. For always being supportive

You listen to my problems and comfort me when I need it, and you've given me advice that I'll always hold on to. You're such a wise woman, and I'm so thankful for that.

4. For being my mom away from home

Thank you for always offering to let me stay as long as I need to, for always asking about school and family and boys and especially for actually listening and caring when I tell you. I trust you as much as I trust your daughter, and it's a special bond that I appreciate more than you'll ever know.

5. For being a role model

Without you, your daughter and I wouldn't be the young women we are today. You always know exactly what to do and say, and it baffles me how you understand us so easily. I have immense respect for you, and I hope you know that you're never taken for granted.

So, thank you. Thank you for raising not one, but two daughters, for helping us grow and being there every step of the way. Thank you for being part of my support system, and loving me like a daughter of your own

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
