8 Text Messages You've Probably Received From Your Mom
business insider

I've been a texting-guru since I was in seventh grade. My first ever cell phone was the kind you could type with vertically and horizontally; it was orange and black (a totally badass color scheme) and had a keyboard that could slide in and out. I remember feeling so elated to finally have a cell phone like the rest of my peers. And then it happened. I got my first ever mom text.

It's been mostly downhill since then. She's learned about emojis and GIFs and memes. Some days, if I'm lucky, I get a voice-recording instead of a text. It's even developed into a Snapchat usage. While all of this seemed kind of terrifying for a while, I'm realizing that mom texts really aren't all that bad (most of the time).

1. The "Good Morning" Text

I have received texts like this (and so has my roommate) many-a-time. Whether it's after a night out or just to wake me up bright and early, my mom's text messages tend to work better than an actual alarm clock.

2. Meme Texts

Just one of the many memes and GIFs I've been sent over the years & they always make my day.

3. Question Texts

We are all familiar with receiving random question-texts like these. But it definitely goes both ways.

4. Hometown Updates

Honestly, I would probably know nothing about the drama in my hometown if it weren't for my mom.

5. The "I'm Wearing Your Clothes" Text

This is definitely a two-way street between my mom and me--I send her pictures of my wearing her clothes just as much as I receive photos of her wearing mine.

6. Texts That Make You Wish You Were Home

Who knew '#littletrees" would make me so nostalgic.

7. "I'm Worried About You" Texts

More often than not I will open my phone to see my mom texted me a link to an article like this.

8. Life Advice Whenever You Need It

The best part about texting your mom? She knows what you need to hear.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
