10 Signs You're The Mom Of Your Friend Group

Every group has one... every group needs one.

10 Signs You're The Mom Of Your Friend Group

A lot of us are lucky enough to have two moms. Okay, okay... there's the one who literally birthed you (who is super awesome and deserves a constant round of applause), but many of us have been blessed with a second, lesser recognized mom -the mom-friend. This is the friend who will not only always listen, but also give you the advice you never knew you needed. She's someone we'd all be lost without.

Here are 10 signs you are the (sometimes) underappreciated, (always) incredible mom of your friend group.

1. You're the one that organizes the plans.

When you've got a bunch of people, with a bunch of ideas about how to make your Friday night "perfect", all eyes turn to you to make the final decision. Your job doesn't end there. You then make any reservations, figure out transportation, and plan the night down to the seconds.

2. Whether they notice or not, you're always tidying up when you go to your friend's houses.

"Yeah, that's so funny! Tell me more..." *You say as you slowly pick up their clothes off the floor*

3. You don't sleep until you get that "I'm home" text.

After a night out, you all go your separate ways back home. But the night is far from over for you because no shut-eye will be had until your friends text you that they're safe. They promised they would!

4. You make puns. Often.

Your friends love your puns though! They're funny! Ha...

5. Your friend's ex is a jerk. Period. No questions asked.

Whether you know him or not, the second he breaks your friend's heart... he has become "He who must not be named".

6. You've got a Mary Poppins purse.

Your friend didn't have time for dinner before you went out? You've got snacks. Phone dead by 9 pm? No biggy. Charger or portable charger?

7. Texts of encouragement are frequent... and lengthy.

That big test your friend has been freaking out about, her interview tomorrow, or even making sure they don't back out of dumping him... you've got some wise words for that!

8. You'll leave a night out early to watch Netflix in bed. No shame.

You feel about 10 seconds of guilt for leaving... but that passes the second you see that "Recently Watched" section, aka your home for the next couple of hours.

9. "Don't say I didn't warn you!" - You on any day, ever.

You hate to say it (lies. You love it.) but...

10. It can be hard taking on this role, but you know your friends appreciate your mom-ness.

They'd be lost without 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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
