An Ode To Mothers: You Deserve More Than Just One Day

Moms should be honored every single day.

An Ode To Mothers: You Deserve More Than Just One Day
Madyson DeJoy

Mother's Day is a day where we honor the wonderful women who raised us, devote their lives to us, and our constantly our number one fans. But thinking about everything that mom's do, they most definitely deserve more than one day that we dedicate to them.

For as long as I can remember, my mother has been my number one support system. Moms do SO much for us, more than we probably realize. I have probably played every sport imaginable (may I add I am extremely unathletic), and through every soccer ball to the head, twisted ankle on the dance floor, or strike out on the diamond, my mom always told me how great I was -- how I would get 'em next time. Although it may have given false hope about my future of a professional athlete, I never felt like I couldn't achieve the impossible, my mom always had my back.

I definitely was not the nicest of daughters either. Every teenage girl goes through their 'dramatic' or 'sassy' phase, but mine seemed to be a little more over the top -- and last much longer than most phases. Luckily for me, my mom called me out on my bullshit, and told me straight up when I needed to check my attitude, and continued to forgive me when I would apologize for being a psycho.

Moms are also crazy at mind reading. They always know when something is wrong, and know just what to say to make you smile. My mom is able to pick up on when I don't like a certain food I am eating, when I've had a terrible day at school, or when I have news that I cannot wait to share. And if I am sad, she knows the exact food, joke, or movie to cheer me up. It's just one of a mother's amazing super powers.

So, here is to the mom's, who, like mine, work their asses off everyday just to give everything to their children; who climb mountains just to make their daughters smiles; who loose sleep in order to make every single sports game; and who support their child in every way possible, even when they make mistakes.

Mom, you deserve the world, and you deserve to be appreciated every single day of the year--- not just one. There isn't enough words to describe how blessed I am to have a mother as great as you, and how thankful I am for everything you've done, and everything you will continue to do. I don't tell you enough, but I love you more than life itself.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Every day should be dedicated to you.

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.

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.
