10 Signs You're The Mom Of Your Friend Group

"I'm not like regular mom -- I'm a cool mom."

10 Signs You're The Mom Of Your Friend Group

There are several different roles in each group of friends. You've got the basics: the loud one, the quiet one, the one with the significant other everyone pretends to like, and the partier. But perhaps the most important role of all is the mom.

A necessary clarification here is that the mom is not necessarily synonymous with the responsible one. Just as real moms come in all forms (wine mom, soccer mom, church mom, etc.) friendship moms do, too. However, there are a few things that truly define your mom-ness.

1. You've been called "mom" before.

Maybe you even secretly liked it.

2. Your bag is pretty much stocked.

You need Purell? Hand cream? A snack? A band-aid? Momma's got you.

3. Your hobbies include things along the lines of reading, crafting, and baking.

4. You're the first one your friends turn to when they need help.

"Wait -- how long is chicken supposed to cook again?"

5. And when you're asked for help, you tend to shoo them out of the way and just do it yourself.

6. Nothing gets you as excited as a good bargain does.

7. You're basically a free Uber ride -- always.

Sure, I can pick you up from work. But only if we can listen to the Lizzie McGuire soundtrack on the way home.

8. You're everyone's biggest cheerleader.

You got an A on your exam? Let me hang it on the fridge!

9. Your fashion sense has been the butt of many jokes before.

Comfort over style is the name of the game.

10. You love your friends as if they were your children, and you can't imagine a life without them.

Moms everywhere, rejoice. Your friends may tease you for keeping band-aids in your purse and having an overabundance of cardigans, but who else can handle a full course load, extracurriculars, carpooling, baking, and crafting? They need you. And you need them.

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.

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.
