10 *Relatable* Points For Every Girl Whose Mom Is Her BFF
Daniella Masrour

If you're reading this, you probably have the same relationship with your mom as I do. Don't get me wrong, it is fantabulous having a BFF that is also your mom. But, it's often difficult to remember when she's your mom and when she's your BFF. Here are little things every girl who is as close to their mom as I am can most definitely relate to.

1. You sometimes forget that she's your mom, and you talk to her as if she were, in fact, just your best friend

Giphy

If you're as close to your mom as I am, you often talk to her about things you probably shouldn't, in ways you probably shouldn't. And because of that, you've probably gotten the "I'm not your friend, I'm your mom" talk more than a couple of times. Ooooops.

2. You'd rather hang out with your mom than your friends

Giphy

You probably find yourself cancelling plans with friends, or just not making them in the first place, because you know you would rather hang out with your ~real~ BFF. Catching a movie and getting dinner with your mom = ultimate Saturday night.

3. You literally do everything together

Giphy

Whether it's hitting the gym, eating meals, shopping, or watching a shower, your mom is always there with you.

4. The rest of your family might feel left out from you and your mom's *special* bond

Giphy

Let's face it, with a BFF comes countless memories together, too many inside jokes to name, and soooo many laughs. It happens, every-so-often, that the other members of the fam just weren't there when the funny thing happened, or simply do not understand the joke. What can we do though....

5. You know EXACTLY what each other is thinking - at all times

Giphy

There's never a moment when I don't know what my mom is thinking, because odds are, I'm thinking it too. Our brains just work in the same way and we just get each other, you know?

6. You gossip. A lot.

Giphy

I know, I know, spilling tea isn't really something to be proud of. But what can I say, if you put my mom and I in a room together, we're bound to talk. About other people. Not to mention, we have the same likes and dislikes when it comes to people - so we're always on the same page.

7. You can tell what the other is thinking with just one look

Giphy

Like all BFFs, my mom and I can tell what the other is thinking with nothing but a glance. If something happens that's mildly out-of-the-ordinary when you're together, you both are the firsts to notice. You look at each other right away, and immediately just know what's up.

8. You always finish each other's sentences

Giphy

When you do everything together, you really experience life by each other's side. So, you live through the same stories that you tell others. This makes it so easy to butt-in when the other is talking, or, in other words, finish each other's sentences.

9. You share clothes, even if you're not the same size

Giphy

My mom and I don't typically buy the same size clothes, but we never fail to manage finding a way to share. Whether it's a T-shirt that fits a little oversized, a denim jacket, or a hand-me-down, I've got a lot of my mom's clothes hidden in my closet.

10. You're basically inseparable

Giphy

My mom and I come as a unit. If she's invited over somewhere for dinner and I'm not, or vice versa, we both get major separation anxiety. Lucky for us, though, living together makes it pretty easy to hang out allll day long.

Love you mommy!!!

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
