You Might Be The 'Baby Groot' Friend Of Your Group

14 Signs You're The 'Baby Groot' Of Your Friend Group

You might be the 'Mom Friend', but I am the "Baby Groot Friend".


Similar to the "Guardians of the Galaxy", we all have our own friend group that we would go to battle with.

While I was watching "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" I started to picture me and my friends as the characters in the movie. Which of my friends would I classify as the leader? The daredevil? The smart one? And soon I realized that the character I most reflected...was Baby Groot.

At first this was quite funny to think of myself as a little tree creature, but in fact, being the Baby Groot of your friend group is a true honor. There is honestly nobody else who could replace you and the friend group would never be the same without you.

While of course, Peter is a cool dude with lots of cool moments, Baby Groot is a scene stealer. He's the glue that holds them all together. The Switzerland of characters. There is truly no other greater character in the movie besides Baby Groot. There is truly no other greater Marvel superhero.

If you are the Baby Groot of your friend group, you should embrace your power... or lack of it at times. You are the most adorable little tree creature your friend group will ever see.

You know you're the Baby Groot of your friend group if...

1. You're most likely the youngest and/or smallest one of the group.

2. Which means your friends can get pretty protective over you most of the time.

3. That doesn't mean you can't fight your own battles when you need to. Especially when it comes to defending your friends.

4. You're never in the middle of the group drama. You're a neutral player.

11. Which means your friends typically try to have you avoid anything that could lead you down the wrong path. (This is where #2 comes back into play)

12. But you don't typically listen to them because you are a strong independent tree creature who can handle themselves.

13. But your friends are always ready to take care of you when you need them and sometimes you really need them.

14. And at the end of the day, as strange as you may be at times, your friends are stranger. And that's what makes you all friends!

15. And you would do anything for your friend group because you love them.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
