6 Reasons Moms Are Amazing

Moms really are unspoken superheroes.

6 Reasons Moms Are Amazing
Ashley Joustra

Mom's are superheroes that just don't get enough credit. I mean really, when is the last time you thanked your mom for everything she's done for you? There's quite a long list of reasons that moms are so amazing; here are a few!

1. They multitask like pros.

Mom's have this superpower where they can do everything at once and do it well. It's crazy. Whenever I talk to my mom on the phone she's also washing dishes, watching TV, cooking dinner, taking a nap, showering, and doing laundry. Okay, so maybe not all of those things, but you get the point!

2. They always understand.

They've been there. They know. They were in college once too. They dated. They learned to be on their own. They did everything you're doing and probably more. Not to mention, they raised you so they probably know you pretty well. It's wonderful to have someone who understands you so fully.

3. They cook.

Okay, this may not be true of all moms, but it's sure true of mine. My favorite part of making the eight hour trek home is getting to eat my mom's cooking. Lasagna, potato soup, German chocolate upside down cake, chili, you name it, she makes it and I eat it. As a plus, she taught me to cook so now I'm self sufficient and can make all these things for myself. Score. Sadly, this is a skill many of my fellow college girls don't possess.

4. They love unconditionally.

Chances are, somewhere along the line, you've screwed up. Don't fear — moms tend to be pretty rational. Though it may take some time, I can guarantee they'll almost always come through and forgive you. Mom's love you, no matter how horrible you are.

5. They take care of you.

I always took it for granted having my mom to take me shopping. That is, until I went to college. When I left for college and needed new bras, I was like a lost puppy. I wandered around thinking, "Man, do bras really cost this much?" Being a girl is complicated, but that's a whole other topic. Anyways, it's great to have a mom that takes care of you. Trust me.

6. They don't have to be your biological mother.

This is by far my favorite thing about moms; they're shareable. When I was in middle and high school, I had such a community of "moms." They were generally my friends' moms. They let me into their homes (and made it feel like home to me!), they fed me, got me addicted to coffee (thanks, Michelle!), and guided me through so many things over the years. Having a big circle of moms looking out for you is amazing. The best part? My community of moms still looks out for me. I still get an occasional text or Facebook message and I know that I could go to them with any problems. Moms are awesome.

So there you have it; six reasons why moms rule. Even if your biological mom isn't the greatest, I'm sure if you think about it you have a mother figure or two that's pretty amazing.

I just want to say thank you to all the moms that have taken care of me along the way, especially my own. Love you all!

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.
