9 Signs You're The 'Mom' Roommate

Rooming with people is a fun experience with the right roommates. Throughout the year, everyone starts to establish roles, you have the crazy one, the smart one, the one with experience, and then you have the "mom" roommate. The mom roommate is the roommate all the others look up to if you don't one, then you are one. So here are nine signs that make you the "mom" roommate.

You worry more about your roommates more than yourself

Any sign of sadness from your roommates makes you jump with worry and you're immediately to their aid. It doesn't matter why they are sad, to you any sadness is not good.

You make mental checklists for everyone

Between knowing if everyone has anything before leaving and double checking everything before leaving, things are tedious, but it is all worth it.

You're a go-to for ranting

Between the rants you hear about grades or the annoying person in art class, you hear it all. Sometimes people need to vent and if you're a go-to person for rants, then you're the "mom" roommate.

You are always ready for an emergency

Pepper Spray? Check. Pads? Check. Samsung and Apple Chargers? Double Check. You're always preparing for an emergency no matter where you go.

You share everything with your roommates

Need a water bottle? Sure take one. Need a blanket? I got five, take one? Need a pad? I gotcha. You share practically anything and everything with your roommates.

You keep your roommates from doing stupid ideas

If you have to talk your roommates out of vandalizing a car, getting petty revenge, or any other ideas that could get them in trouble, then you're the "mom" roommate.

Always volunteering to drive because it makes you feel mature

If volunteering to drive not a problem because it makes you feel like a mom driving, then you might be the "mom" roommate. *Disclaimer: Don't do what this cat is doing*

Their happiness is your happiness

If you get happier than your roommate on an accomplishment they've done, then you must be the "mom" roommate.

You call yourself the "mom" roommate

If you often see yourself as a second mom to your roommates, then you may be the mom roommate.

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.

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.

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.
