10 Things You Know To Be True If You Have An Overbearing Parent Who Still Treats You Like You're 9

I'm actually 20 but to my parents I'll always be a kid in their eyes

All parents want their kids to be safe and happy, overbearing parents tend to take it to the extreme, though.

1. Your phone's location is shared with them


If your location shows you're somewhere that you didn't specify that you were going to, expect a phone call.

2. Having to know every detail about your day before you go out


I don't even know the complete plans for my day, how am I supposed to tell you?

3. Giving them your friends' phone numbers


Their contacts are filled with your friends' numbers more than their own.

4. Always having a charger on you


Having a dead phone is not an excuse for not answering your phone.

5. They come into your room if you sleep in late to make sure you're still breathing


No, I'm not dead, sometimes I just sleep well into the afternoon.

6. A missed call from them is a death sentence


Yet, your mom barley ever answers her phone.

7. They visit you at work to "check in"


Whether it's to ask if you need anything, or to make sure you're actually there, you can expect them to pop in.

8. They judge other parents


"Emily's parents let her do that?"

9. They're your personal calendar


Even if you remember your schedule, they'll remind you as if you don't.

10. It's hard to stay mad at them


Day to day it's easy to be mad at them, but in the long run, you know they just care.

Having overbearing parents can be a burden, but you wouldn't trade it for the world.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
