6 Things I Wish I Told My Mom More Often

Moms deserve to know we love and appreciate them

Since day one, my mom has been my biggest motivator and loudest supporter. She never fails to protect me and stand up for me, doing whatever it is she knows I need from her.

Even though I've always been very close with my mom, I often look back on times where I wish I would have been nicer to her. Being away at college has made me realize how much she really does for me, and has also made me appreciate her even more.

Here are some things I wish I would have told my mom more often.

1. Thank you 

This seems simple, but there are so many times I wish I would have thanked my mom. From driving me to school, to doing my laundry and cooking, she deserves a thank you for all the hard work she puts in to make my life better.

2.  I'm sorry 

I wish I would apologize to my mom more often for the times where I take my anger out on her or have a bad attitude towards her even though she did nothing to deserve it.

3. Do you need help?

My whole life, my mom has constantly been doing things to help me. She does laundry, cooks and cleans, walks the dog, and works. There are too many times where I find myself comfortable with letting her pull the whole load, and I know I should help her more.

4. I support you

My mom has always supported me in everything I do, and it's sometimes easy to overlook the fact that parents need support too. I wish I would be a bigger cheerleader for my mom sometimes, and encourage her the way she does with me.

5. I'm thankful for you 

Not only am I thankful for all that my mom does, but I am thankful for who she is. She is bold and unique and unapologetically herself, and I'm so thankful to have such a cool mom.

6. I love you 

Even though I tell my mom I love her pretty often, I really can never say it too much.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
