My Mom Tries To Be My Best Friend, But She's Still My Parent

She's young at heart and that's OK

My Mom Tries To Be My Best Friend, But She's Still My Parent
Magdalene Scarlett

My mom had me at 21 years old. She married at 19 which is how old I am now. I could never imagine starting life at such a young age, but she did it. Now she's 41 years old and she's living her best life.

My mom has always been a fun soul. She used to be a substitute teacher and the students loved her because she was always funny, but serious too. Joking around is something she's always done. She will never say no to playing jokes on people. She has a young soul and I love it.

My mom loves Cardi B. She wants to see in her concert. I think it's so funny because She doesn't like Cardi B because the younger generation does, she actually likes Cardi B. Her favorite Cardi B song is a hard one to pick for her. She says it's between "Bodak Yellow" and "Money." She really likes Cardi B and it's not a front.

Missy Elliott is her spirit animal. Whenever she raps the song, which is very often, she starts off saying, "It's Momma D in the houseeeee." Her favorite part of the song is when Missy Elliott flips the song around and says, "Ti Esrever dna to pilf nwod gniht ym tup" which is "I put my thing down flip it and reverse it" backwards. She will go throughout our home saying that and send us daily Snapchats of it as well. She wants to create her own music video to the song, so hopefully, her dreams will come true.

She tries to be my best friend, but she also tries to be friends with my friends. They actually love her. She is like their mom and friend in one. She is even getting ordained to marry one of them. She always gives them advice when it's needed and they call on her when they are going through a tough time and need some guidance.

Whenever something new is trending, she is going to join in. Cash me outside was her favorite. She did the "In My Feelings" Challenge... on the side of the interstate. She even dyed her hair pink and purple at one point. She just loves to fit in with me and my friends.

My mom is full of life. You never see her upset or down and whenever something is wrong, she makes the best of it. She is always entertaining and if you know her, you know she's played a joke on you at least once. She's young at heart and that's OK.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
