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.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
