20 Things Every #SquadMom Has Said At Least Once

The role of "mom" in every friend group is a very important one. Someone has to make sure your friends get to class and don't do too many stupid things when left unattended on a college campus.

Here are X things you say when you're the mom of the friend group.

1. Your shorts are up your butt, it's not hot

Sometimes the truth hurts and "mom" has to tell you that your shorts are giving you a wedgie and your butt is hanging out before you go out.

2. Don't talk to him, he's a loser

Because "mom" knows best and knows who you should stay away from, right?

3. Go to bed, you have class in the morning

Just a gentle reminder that sleep is important.

4. You really should go to class

I know you're tired and your professor is miserable and you'll never need anything you learn in this class, but you still should go.

5. He's stupid and not worth your time

Girl tell him bye.

6. Call me if you need me to come get you, I don't care what time it is

Because I'd rather get a call from your drunk self on the other side of campus than have to go get you at the hospital because you drove home or went home with a sketchy guy.

7. You should really be drinking more water

Headache? Drink water. Hungover? Drink water. Sore throat or cold? Drink water.

8. Is that really your dinner?

Because sometimes animal crackers don't count as a meal.

9. I think I have that in my purse

Hair ties? In my purse. Extra pen? In purse. Band aid? In purse. Advil? In purse.

10. Make sure you wear a coat!

One of my personal favorites. Because it's cold and "mom" knows that she'll hear all about how cold you got when you get home.

11. Don't go there at night, it's sketchy and you might get kidnapped

Because "mom" does her research.

12. What time did you get home last night?

Don't lie, I thought I heard you come in at 3 a.m.

13. If you're going to go out, make sure you stay with *insert friend name here*

Always use the buddy system.

14. Calm down, we'll figure this out

Boy issues? I'll help. Class issues? I'll help. Just calm down and we'll be okay and we'll figure it all out.

15. Be careful!

Just a reminder.

16. Make good choices!

My personal favorite, always a good idea to throw out there.

17. Text me when you get there

Or else I'll worry you got lost or in an accident, sorry.

18. We're leaving, let's go, now!

Because "mom" knows you need to leave.

19. Don't do that

Just don't.

20. Don't forget we have to go to the store *insert day here*

Because if we run out of toilet paper or paper towels life will suck and "mom" knows you'll probably forget.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
