Here's To You Mom, From Your Grateful Daughter

A letter to appreciate all that you do

Here's To You Mom, From Your Grateful Daughter
Roberto Nickson

My goodness, thank you for being you.

Thank you for picking up the phone at work, as you're going to bed, on the way home from work, while making dinner, at dinner, in the morning, basically whenever I need you to talk.

Thank you for giving the best advice. I never knew how much a mom could know until I went off to college and didn't have you close to me, and had to resort to calling you for everything. You amaze me at how much you've gone through, how strong you are, yet how well you have handled your situations, as well as handle my life's disasters.

Thank you for showing me the world. Thanks for taking me on trips I would've never gone on without you, making me do things I would've never done without you, experiencing things I would've never experienced, meeting amazing people I would've never met, and trying many things I would've never tried.

Thank you for showing me what is important in life. Thank you for showing me that it's not important to be at every social event, or to be the center of attention, to seek materialistic things, or to be selfish. Thank you for showing me how to be the most independent person like you are, a person who treats everyone with respect and care, a person that gives everything they have, and loves more than they should.

Thanks for all you do Mom. I miss being in the same house together so you can do my laundry and listen to my problems!

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.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

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.
