21 Things You Still Call Your Mom For, Even As A College Student

You think you're all grown up now, then you call your mom to ask her where your other sock is.

21 Things You Still Call Your Mom For, Even As A College Student
Alexandria Nalevanko

Let's just admit it, we all phone in our parents when we forget how to adult. And let's face it...moms always know what to do. Here's an ode to you, Mom, for always answering.

1. Hey I know I don't live with you anymore, but have you seen my leggings?

"Oh the navy blue ones? Yeah, they're in your bathroom."

Thanks, Mom!

2. You will NEVER believe what happened today...

Your mom knows all the drama. All you have to do is say your friend's name and she already knows what's up. Be ready to take her advice, somehow moms always know which friends won't last.

3. Does this shirt match with light wash jeans?

As long as you're wearing a coat, she doesn't care.

Is this considered a light or a dark?

What?! You just want to make sure.

5. Do you know where my birth certificate is?

6. Is it okay to use Windex on the kitchen table?

7. How long do you cook chicken for?

You'd rather have her cooking anyways.

8. Do I have any allergies I don't know about?

9. When did you know you wanted to have kids?

10. Remember when I was little and threw a tantrum in the Target parking lot?

Sorry about that.

11. I just watched "Brave" and I'm really sorry that I said I hated you in 6th grade.

12. Can you pick me up this weekend?

13. Can I microwave this?

14. I had a terrible day...

She'll hear all about how you didn't study and then failed the exam and not make you feel terrible about it.

15. Why did I wake up with this rash on my face?

16. Do we have a history of diabetes in our family?

Setting: At the doctor trying to fill out your own documents.

17. Why are groceries so expensive?!

Now you understand why she always made you put the cookies back in the grocery store.

18. What's the Netflix password again?

19. Can I live with you if my life turning upside down and I fail out of college?

20. How is everyone doing?

You really miss your family sometimes.

21. I miss you.

Love you, Mom, talk to you tomorrow.

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.
