Throughout my life I was fortunate enough to not only have a great relationship with my biological mother, but develop mother-like relationships with many women who have been a major influence on my life. As I'm sure many of you can relate to a few of these types of people, here's my list of the different types of "moms" we have the pleasure of meeting in our lives.

1.Your Actual Mom

Whether she's biologically your mom, step-mom or adoptive parent, this mom overcomes them all. She's done everything for you from changing your diapers as a baby to being your best friend when you need her most. You'll argue with this Mom and butt heads all the time, but she's the one that will always be there for you when you feel your loneliest and can always trust to love you unconditionally. She's the one that will call you or text you almost daily to make sure you're doing okay, let you vent and update you on her favorite reality TV show. She's the one you aspire to be like for your children one day.

2. The Aunt That Feels Like Another Mom

This type of mom acts like your best friend half the time. Although you are both goofy and cry over every sad movie together, she knows when to be serious and always makes sure you know there is always someone to vent to. She's been by your side since you were born and makes you feel like you are also one of her own.

3. The Grandmother-Mom

This mom just speaks what is on her mind. She will give you the most raw life advice and will preach her wisdom on you to help make your life easier. She is always one of the first ones to help out in a tough situation and always willing to give her honest opinion on everything. She loves to share family history with you and reminisce on your childhood (even some memories you don't actually remember yourself).

4. Your Best Friends Mom

This one will bake you all the baked goods your heart desires. She's also an amazing cook who knows exactly what you're in the mood for without saying it. She can make you laugh over absolutely anything and she's the perfect person to pour a glass of wine with and share stories. She never takes life too seriously and wants to instill that on you. She's probably one of the most fun types of moms you'll encounter!

5. Your Boyfriends Mom

Although she hasn't been around as long as the other types of moms, she makes up for it with her constant care on your wellbeing. She always stays in communication with you and asks how you're doing, while sharing links to funny puppy videos on Facebook that remind her of you. She's accepted you as part of her family the day she met you and has always been excited to see you when you visit. She's trustworthy, kind and always there for you to vent to.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Reading is a relaxing activity that provides many benefits. Everybody reads books (when they are not watching Netflix, chatting on social media, or making Tik Tok videos) to distract themselves from reality for a while. Many do not realize the positive impact that books have like reducing stress, assisting with sleep, improving cognitively, and strengthening the mind. In honor of National Book Day, there are many great novels that you can read to mark this special holiday. Here are the best ones to check out.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

We have got to create a safer work environment for people with disabilities.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
