7 Things I Forget To Tell My Mom

I will be the first one to roll my eyes when I'm in the same room as my mom. That woman is crazy! She drives me up a wall, I cannot lie. Sometimes I just want to shrink her and put her in a closed mason jar for a few hours and then let her out when I'm ready. However, she is one hell of a mom. She isn't made of gold and she isn't made of Betty Crocker skills, but she is hardworking and she is understanding. My mother has never told me that she couldn't make something happen for me without trying first. My mom has my back and although we fight continuously, she is Wonder Woman and I can't ask for more. So here are 7 things I wish I told my mom more and maybe of you feel the same way, you should say them too..

1. You're An Awesome Mom

You rock! I know I don't give you much of my time, and I should, but don't take that as a punishment. And don't let my brat of a sister ever make you second guess your maternal skills because I think that I turned out pretty awesome and I think that is all because of you!

2. I miss you

I know I don't call you enough and I am really sorry. I know you are lonely. I should call you more, and I should tell you more, that I do miss you. When I am home I don't devote all of my time to you I know, but that's because I take you for granted, but I miss you and believe me when I say that.

3. You Do Enough

DON'T LISTEN TO TAYLOR. Oh my god mom you have done everything in your little power that you could for us. You were never dealt an easy hand but you turned it into the best hand you could give us. You said to me a few weeks ago, "Maybe I don't do enough." You do more than enough mom.

4. You're better than dad

Not to bash dad, but come on...he's a three and you're ten! You love more than he does, provide more than he does and you smile more than he does. Those things are appreciated a lot. Without you, I wouldn't have a parent to care for me.

5. Can I help you?

I should ask you if you need help more, better yet, I should just offer. I should make dinner and volunteer to clean the bath tub. I like to think that I do my best, and I do sometimes but I could do more. You did everything for me for 19 years, I could certainly do more.

6. Thank you

So thanks, mom! Thank you for understanding me. Thank you for caring about my problems and offering a solution. Thank you for making every Christmas and Birthday worth my while. Thank you for bending over backward for me every time I asked. Thank you for putting yourself last all of the time and me first.

7. I Love You

I Love you! I know I don't say that enough! There is no excuse for that. They are three simple words, I have to find the time to tell you them, I promise I will. I love you, mom.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

Wikimedia Commons

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
