It seems to me that few bonds exist stronger than that of mother and daughter.

You call her up in a heartbeat, whether it's to spend a day on the town, a day in front of the TV, or simply to hear her voice. You rely on her for her support, smiles, and so much more. If you're a momma's girl like me, you'll most definitely catch yourself doing these things on a daily basis.

1. You call her seventeen times per week, minimum.

Giphy

There are endless reasons to call your mom! Add up all of the strange questions, funny stories, and bad moods, and you're obviously gonna dial her number more than once a day.

2. You text her 24/7.

Giphy

Messaging her makes the day go faster and keeps a smile on your face. Don't try and tell me you don't overuse the gifs and emojis in your conversations, because you know you do. No shame, though!

3. You run errands with her.

Giphy

Doesn't matter if it's Target, Walmart, or Giant. If you enjoy your mom's company like me, running errands with her can be a blast! Who knows, maybe you'll accidentally end up at TJMaxx along the way.

4. You complain about annoying people with her.

Giphy

No explanation necessary. If you don't dislike the same people, are you even bonding at all?

5. You hug her all the time (obvi).​

Giphy

There's nothing greater than the feeling of one of your mom's hugs! You could swear she's a professional or something...

6. You share the feels over all of your favorite movies and TV shows.

Giphy

If she's not gonna be your shoulder to cry on when you've gotta wait an entire six months for a new season of The Good Place, then who is?

7. You miss her cooking when you're away.

Giphy

Your food (err, umm...Pizza Hut's food) is decent, but there's nothing like your mom's home cooked meals.

8. You count down the days until it's time to come home and visit.

Giphy

You cherish being on your own, but she's your mom and you miss her! Can't help that.

9. You crank up the radio with her when a jam comes on.

Giphy

She raised you on her music, and you can't help but love it as much as she. How can you not sing along when Bon Jovi comes on?

10. You know in your heart that she's your best friend in the whole wide world.

Giphy

It is a beautiful thing when you go from being simply mother and daughter to friends.

She's your closest confidant, and no one understands you better. She'll be there for you if nobody else, and you share your best and worst days with her. She loves you without any conditions, and you couldn't ask for a higher honor than to be her daughter.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.


3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.


6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.


7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in two days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.


13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.


14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.


You're finally back to your old self.

The Top 10 Gay-Themed Commercials That Should Be Celebrated

Gay-themed advertisements are an important part of our representation in pop culture. Here are the ten best gay-themed commercials that deserve celebration.

Advertisements have a long history of reflecting and influencing popular culture. As someone from one of the boroughs of New York City, I've always been surrounded by advertisements. So it is extremely obvious to me why representation in these advertisements matter. Commercials online and on television are no exception. As a gay man, I'd like to present you with ten commercials that make me feel a sense of pride.

1. Israeli Gays Get Distracted On The Beach

Israel is a safe haven for LGBTQ people living in the Middle East. While places like Saudi Arabia and Iran treat gay men horrifically by enforcing Sharia Law, Israel welcomes them with open arms. That open minded attitude was even more obvious with this commercial from 2006.

2. Pepsi Brings Out The Confidence In One Guy (With A Gay Twist)

This Pepsi ad from the UK has a comedic twist that will delight the viewer with the main character's confidence. I find the women's reaction to him passing by each of them even more humorous than his friend's reactions.

3. Doritos Gay Sauna Contest Entry That Could've Gayed Up The Super Bowl

This commercial was created as a contest entry where aspiring filmmakers could create commercials for Doritos. The winning entry would be aired during the Super Bowl and the filmmaker would win a cash prize. This viral smash didn't make it, however. It seemed unfair, as several straight-themed commercials feature tons of innuendo. Unfortunately, it seems as though gay male sexuality is still threatening to some.

4. Campbell's Soup Portrays The Adorable Gay Household We All Wish We Had

This Campbell's Soup commercial is a short and sweet depiction of two gay dads sharing a sweet moment with their son. If it proves anything, it's that gay households are just like any other.

5. Marriage Equality Gets An Endorsement From Tide

While marriage equality has been a source of debate over the years, the only thing wrong with this union was the attire chosen for it. A brilliant twist ending courtesy of Tide.

6. This Heinz Commercial Is A Gay New Yorker's Dream Come True

As a gay man and a New Yorker, this commercial makes me very happy. Affection between same sex couples hasn't always been something we could see on television. However, this Heinz commercial squashes all that.

7. A Sweet And Unexpected Coming Out At McDonald's

This McDonald's commercial from Taiwan features a twist ending that is heartfelt, not comedic. For anyone who has struggled coming out, this should hit you right in the feels!

8. Sister And Brother Fight Over The Hot Pool Boy... With Coca-Cola

A nice bottle of Coke is quite refreshing. Who knew it was the perfect ice-breaker to approach your crush? This ad features a brother and sister competing for the pool boy's attention. However, it seems like someone else beat them at their own game.

9. This IKEA Commercial Was A Historic Turning Point

This classic IKEA ad from 1994 was groundbreaking for gay representation in advertising. It would be remiss of me not to include this important commercial on the list.

10. What Happens When Your Dad Sets You Up On A Tinder Date?

It's always nice to have your parents acceptance. However, even for gay guys, parents can get a little too close for comfort. This Vote Savvy ad portrays just that. But hey, they mean well, right?

Whether comedic, heartfelt, or provocative, these ten commercials have done wonders for gay male representation in advertising. It also reflects the representation of gay men around the world. From Israel to Taiwan to the UK, these commercials reflect the growing acceptance around the gay community. As far as I'm concerned, that's something to be celebrated.
