16 Proofs You're Both The Mom Friend AND The Dad Friend

Why be just a mom-friend or just a dad-friend, when you could be the best of both worlds?

16 Proofs You're Both The Mom Friend AND The Dad Friend
Ashlyn Ren Bishop

Who said that you can only be a mom-friend or a dad-friend? Where's the fun in that? Especially when you're the perfect combination of both.

If you're both a mom-friend AND a dad-friend, then you can probably relate to everything below, if not more unlisted ones. Have your wine and cake or chips and beer, and enjoy them, too.

Your Mom qualities...

1. "Text me when you get home!"

2. Always baking or cooking food to bring over for your friends

3. Checking up multiple times when they're sick or upset, or just 'cause

4. Frequently pass up a night out for some alone wine-time

5. Always over-pack or over-plan when you and your friends plan to go somewhere

6. This means you've always got things like pain meds, snacks, drinks, etc. ready at all times

7. Always reminding friends to do things and babying them, even over small things

8. The first to help out a friend or person in need

Your Dad qualities...

9. Makes terrible puns and poor quality jokes frequently

10. Loves food and eating it more than you'd like to admit (and probably eat everyone else's food when they aren't looking)

11. Just goin' with the flow

12. Likes to do dumb things without thinking too much about it

13. Adventurous and down for spontaneity

14. Doesn't try hard (or at all) when you leave the house or hang out with friends. You just grab and go

15. Drink beer pretty much daily and love every sip

16. Can be pretty ignorant and not always know your limits

Sometimes you can't just be one parent-friend, you gotta be both! And that makes you the best of both worlds.

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.
