A Letter To My Mom

All the things I don't tell you enough.

A Letter To My Mom

Dear Mom,

There are so many things that I could say about you and so much I could thank you for. I honestly don't know where to begin, but I think I'll start with saying that I am sorry that I don't tell you these things more often. Sometimes I forget that you don't just automatically know that you're awesome (because you are), and that sometimes you need to be reminded of all the great things about yourself. You deserve to hear a list of all the reasons I love you, and so here is my attempt at that.

I love you. First and foremost, know that I love you regardless of how much we argue and disagree. I have loved you for eighteen years, and I will love you for 100 more. I don't tell you this enough.

I also want to say thank you. Thank you for being my best friend, my rock and my backbone because without you I would be nothing. Thank you for giving me the freedom to spread my wings and go out on my own, and thank you for being there when I realize that that freedom is too much for me to handle. Thank you for always having my back, even when I'm wrong. You are always in my corner even in the hardest situations, and for that I can never thank you enough. Thank you for trusting me more than anyone else in my life.

I aspire to be as beautiful inside and out as you are. If I am ever only half the person that you are, I will be satisfied. I want you to know that it is incredibly obvious how hard you have worked to give me the life I have now. I have never met someone as strong-willed as you.

I couldn't do life without you. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have you to call every day when I get out of class. I don't think you realize it, but even when we are hundreds of miles away my favorite part of the day is talking to you. You always know exactly what to say to make me feel better, whether it be instructions on how to get a stain out of my favorite shirt or just by giving me life advice. You are the first person I call when I am happy, and you are the first person I call when I am sad. Even when I feel like the whole world is against me, I know that you are with me.

Mom, you are my best friend and my superhero, forever and always.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.

Hittin' the Road Playlist

With the end of August approaching more quickly than many of us would like, the preparation for school is happening in more ways than just one.


The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?
