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.

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.

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.
