Why Every Friend Should Be The Mom Friend

The "mom" friend has gotten a bad rap. We attribute being the "mom" friend with a friend that tells you to take a jacket when it's cold, or makes sure you don't have one too many shots of tequila. But a mom friend is so much more than that.

The mom friend is the friend you go to when you fall down and scraped your knee. She's the friend you look to for comfort you when that boy didn't call you back. The friend you hide your mistakes from because you know she's the only one who will honestly tell you, "Yeah, you f*cked up." She's the friend you tell your best news to first, because she will be almost as excited as you are. The friend who obsesses over you, showering you with compliments. The mom friend is the one who is truly proud to say, "Yeah that girl is my friend."

The mom friend cares so deeply for her friends, that she can't even see straight half the time. She ponders tirelessly, "Why did she do that?" and wonder if somehow she could have stopped her friend from making a mistake. The mom friend takes responsibility for her friends, treating them as she would her own children.

That's why we should all try to be the mom friend. We should all look at our friends as if they were our children. What kind of friend would you want your kid to have? A friend that just tells them, "Hey man it's cool," or one that actually looks out for their wellbeing? My guess, is the latter.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
