I'm The Girl That Talks To Her Mom Every Day

Yes, I'm that girl. I'm the girl that you see walking from class to class with the phone pressed up against her face saying, "Hey Mom! Guess what just happened?" or you hear the ending of, "I love you mom talk to you again tonight." Some would say that I'm wasting my college life away by constantly talking to my mom. That somehow talking to my mom makes me uncool because I tell her everything.

Have Your Voice Heard: Become an Odyssey Creator

People have told me that now is the time to let go of your family and find out who you really are as a person. I've also heard, "Why tell your mom everything when this is the one chance to get away with anything?" I'll tell you why. My mom is my absolute best friend. I never have to worry about my mom talking bad about me behind my back or worry that she'll leave me. I know she has my best interest at heart and she would never intentionally hurt me. Because she is my best friend I want her to be updated on my life just like all of my other friends.

Now granted, I won't be telling her about the pound bag of sour patch kids that I ate (sorry mom) but everything else I want her to know. I don't feel obligated and I don't feel like I'm dependent on needing to talk to her to get by. Since she is my best friend why wouldn't I tell her everything? I know she'll never judge if I make a mistake and I know if I succeed in something she will be rooting me on.

So yes, I talk to my mom every day and I wouldn't have it any other way. She's encouraged me to be a better person and lifted me up in the hard times so there's no way college will make me let go of someone so special.

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."

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?

13929

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.
