16 Old School Signs You Are The Grandma Friend
Tiago Muraro

We all know about the mom friend of the group. This is the one who watches out for others, takes care of them, and loves them oh so well. Then recently, the dad friend got introduced, this is the one who breaks out the interesting dance moves and makes odd jokes, but cares deeply about their friends. This person is also likely to be rocking some sweet dad hats.

However, there is one friend we have not yet mentioned.

It's the grandma friend.

Even if you are 20 years old, this could be you. Here are 16 signs that you are the grandma friend of your group.

1. You own more knit clothing than anyone else.

Who doesn't love a good sweater?

2. You struggle to keep up with that teenage slang.

What on Earth does "lit" even mean?

3. If it's 9 p.m., you are asleep.

You got to get that beauty rest! I feel you.

4. Your friends know and expect you to say "dang" or"darn" instead of some other cuss words those dang kids are saying now a' days.

Did you drop something? DARN.

5. Glasses? Ya, you have 4-6 pairs of them.

Every good grandma needs to make sure her vision is clear enough.

6. You own more fuzzy socks than the average human.

Maybe you even have a pair for each day of the week.

7. You have said the phrase, "Oh my word."

Sometimes, when you are shocked, you don't say "shook" or whatever those other college kids say, you say "oh my word!"

8. You wake up earlier than the average college kid.

7 a.m., time to get up and make that coffee.

9. You have slippers and/or a robe that you actually wear on a regular basis.

Comfort is key my friends.

10. Arts and crafts are your jam.

You are always looking for some new hobbies! Maybe knitting will be your next adventure!

11. When you get your friends gifts, they have cheesy sayings on them about love and life.

Everyone could use some encouragement in their life!

12. You are always cold, and therefore, rocking a fuzzy blanket whenever you are home.

Maybe it's even a knit blanket.

13. You are that one friend that laughs at the jokes even if you don't understand them at all.

Grandma might not be the most up to date, but that is aye ok.

14. The baby clothes aisle at Target makes your heart melt.

Have you checked them recently? JUST GO LOOK at how cute all those little fuzzy onesies are.

15. You own tea and a lot of it.

You never know when you are going to need some lemon chamomile or chai.

16. Your dance moves aren't exactly what the kids would say are up to date.

If you are having fun, keep on dancing, grandma.

At the end of the day, being the grandma friend is a whole lot of fun. You get to see the world in a different way (maybe because of one of your 4 pairs of glasses). You get to use all of the fuzzy blankets or socks, and anything knit is hanging in your closet. Have no shame in your game, grandma, you are a unique member of your friend group.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
