My Momma Always Knows Best

I love you, mom.

My Momma Always Knows Best
Sharlene Paolino

I never thought I would actually be super close with my mother, and after 20 years, she's become my best friend.

Don't get me wrong, we butt heads, we bicker, we fight, and then we laugh, make jokes and reminisce about the good old times. There are so many perks in having your mom as your best friend because after all mothers always have your best interest in mind and their main concern is always your happiness.

We are our mom's pride and joy no matter what, and the least we could do to give back for the things they've done for us is to be the best person that we can. They don't ask for much, they just want their kids to be around and love them unconditionally. Here are a few things that I'm blessed to have my mom for:

1. Finding my stuff.

My room whenever I come back from college feels like a clothing store just threw up all over it. Sad to say that half of the time I wake up rushing to work, I always end up scrambling like crazy to find my glasses underneath all the jumbled mess. And like always, my mom saved my butt and found it for me.

2. Passing on the cooking pride.

You got me into cooking, now I can't wait for my future family one day to taste my cooking that was influenced by yours truly.

3. Advice. advice. advice.

Growing up is no joke. The whole beginning excitement and the wishful thinking future makes the present so blurry and unenjoyable sometimes. But whenever the water gets a little murky, we always know who to run to for the BEST advice, even though half of the time they sting. We all need some legit truths in our lives.

4. Always wanting the best for me.

Whether it be boys, education, career, my future family one day... I know no matter what you always have my best interest.

5. Taking care of me in general.

I'm not just talking about all the times that you spent worrying about me being sick. I'm talking about everything. From nagging me to wear a jacket even though it's already warm-ish out, to making sure I eat something healthy.

6. Always making me laugh.

I must say I got my slightly funny self to my mom. But over time, my mom's humor has slowly stuck to me. But you're the bomb, for always making me laugh in my worst mood swings.

7. Patience.

Words can't describe how much patience you have. From dealing with my little brother and I bickering to me giving you an attitude. You're a saint for putting up with that and still love me at the same time.

In all honesty, at some point, you'll realize that your family will always be there for you. I know I learned the hard way and I am now living my life to make my mother proud of me. For all the things that you've done for me, I can't thank you enough. I wouldn't be where I am now without you.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
