6 Things I Hear Repeatedly When My Friends Are In The Passenger Seat Of My Car

"Wow! You're a better driver than I thought!"

One of my favorite things to do is take my friends out for a spin in my car as we jam out to music. I thought it would be interesting if I documented some of the things they have told me while sitting in the passenger seat of my car.

1. “You drive best when you know where you are.”

Wow, well thanks! I hope that is a good thing. I know where I am in Lubbock 40% of the time so there is an approximate view of how skilled of a driver I am in this town. Wow, I just love making people feel safe in my car.

2. “Dang, it smells good in here!”

This is something I am very proud of. I’ve had my car since senior year of high school and all the times it has been through the smell of Starbucks, other friends' fast food, and my sweaty self after running seem almost non-existent when someone new gets into my car. This is great and hopefully it will last forever!

3. “Did you get your car washed today?”

On the outside, I would definitely say that my car is more clean. Believe it or not, it is actually easier to keep clean too. I don’t know about your car, but the inside of my car is the absolute hardest to keep clean. More specifically, the floor of my car. Man it is sure a hassle! Comment below if you face this same issue!

4. “Oh, you’re going this way?”

I take unique routes to get to my destination just for fun and to gain knowledge of my surroundings. My dad does this too, so I’ve learned to take it on too as I got older. Some people think it’s weird that I do that but guess who probably knows more than three routes to get to the grocery store? Me!

5. “Wow, you’re a better driver than I thought!”

For a reason I have not yet discovered, most of my friends stereotype me as a bad driver on the spot. Once they get in my car, most of those thoughts quickly change. I just smirk and keep driving when they come to this realization because it is quite entertaining to me. Shoutout to all of my friends for believing in me!

6. “You have an interesting taste in music.”

I do not know what the concept of driving in silence is. I HAVE to have my music going in the car at all times, it is my number one rule. As many of you know, I am obsessed with music. I listen to it almost constantly, whether it be on the way to class, while doing homework, and of course, driving. I guess I do have an interesting taste in music because more than five people have told me that in the car only.

Off the top of my head, these were the most common remarks that my friends have said to me. Some enjoy being in my car more than others and it definitely shows!

Dear Mom, I Hope You Know

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

Stop Assuming Your Queer Friends Are Going To End Up Falling For You

News flash: if you're my friend, the chances of me falling for you are slim to none.


Ever since I came out my senior year, I've encountered bumps of my friendships due to my sexuality. I think people understand gay, lesbian, and bisexual identities rather well. However, there are other members of the LGBTQ+ community that isn't as understood as well.

I identify as pansexual but start using the term queer. Essentially, I don't have a preference if someone identifies as female or male. When it comes to love and relationships, I care about the quality of the person and if I'm getting the love and respect I deserve.

However, to some of my friends, they seemed to become afraid. They distanced themselves in our friendships in fear I would end up falling for them.

News flash: if you're my friend, the chances of me falling for you are slim to none. You are my friend for a reason. If I liked you, I would honestly be too nervous to talk to you.

It's nice to know to have that kind of self-confidence where you think everyone has a crush on you. That's the attitude to have because you are a pretty great person. However, sorry to break it to you, but you just are not my type.

There is absolutely no reason to cut off a friendship just because you don't understand. Your queer friends would probably like you to ask questions. It can be a sign you care about them and showing support. There is nothing wrong with asking questions either. When you're in class and you don't know anything, then you ask a question. When you are getting to know someone, you ask questions. Even if you knew this person for a while, ask away!

I think there is a stigma of not knowing something and feeling embarrassed. However, it shouldn't be this way. We should embrace the unknown, learn, and grow from it. It's 2019. It's all about being open-minded to differences. We have to do better for the next generation.
