A Thank You Letter To My Mom

Thank you for giving me the world and more.

A Thank You Letter To My Mom

I know that a thank you letter to your mother on Mother's Day is kind of cliche, so that's why mine isn't being shared on Mother's Day, because she should be thanked everyday of the year, not just on that day.

I don't look up to my mom because she's my mom and I feel the need too, but because of the type of individual she is. Anyone that knows her can agree on that she's one of the most selfless people, always putting others before herself.

So mom here's a little article for you.

Dear Mom,

There's been plenty of times when it comes to school, or following my dreams, that I begin to question my worth and wonder if I have what it takes to be successful. There have been times where I begin to panic about how hard certain classes are, and how much stuff I have on my plate and you've received texts or phone calls about it. But every time you've received one of those, you've always managed to tell me how proud you are of me, and that I'm capable of achieving anything. That's part of the reason why I love having both you and dad in my life; because you both have believed in me when I've struggled to believe in myself.

Thank you for being a cheerleader when it comes to my life, by not only telling me to keep going, but pushing me to.

Thank you for always being right, as much as I hate to admit it.

Thank you for raising me the way you did. Making sure I knew the importance of having respect and manors.

Thank you for always supporting me, whether it was on the field, within my academics, or the goals I have set out for myself.

Thank you for making me get a job at sixteen, I may have been extremely mad about it then, but my twenty-year-old self is thanking you so much for it. With making me get a job, you've taught me the importance of having a hard work ethic, that everything you get in life, you work hard for; it doesn't come to you. When it's 3 A.M. and I'm up studying, I remember what you've taught me, and use it for motivation.

Thank you for constantly putting our family first, by never missing a school function, giving us what we need, and being there for us at anytime of the day.

Thank you for being someone I can look up to, and I'm not saying that because you're my mom and I feel like I have to, I truly mean it. You've always put people before yourself, you're always there when someone needs help, and you're always making sure that people know they're cared for.

Thank you for always forgiving me, especially when I take your clothes without asking.. sorry you have nice clothes.

Thank you for working as hard as you do, to make sure that we have the life that we have.

I only hope that one day I can be as good as a mother as you are.

Thank you for being the mom that you have been throughout my twenty years of existence.

But most importantly, thank you for giving me the world and more.

Love always,

Your Favorite Daughter

Things To Do In Austin Over Spring Break

From swimming holes to SXSW, I got you covered.

Spi Abroad

With spring break quickly approaching in the next couple of weeks for high school and college students, most will be heading home to spend time with family and friends, while others will be going to explore new places such as the beach or someplace new to go. Austin has been ranked in numerous lists of best cities to visit and move to in the U.S, but having been born in raised in Austin, I can tell you everything there is to do.

With spring break around the corner, it's time to look at some ground rules. We are used to seeing insane partying in Panama City Beach and other Florida locations. We have an image in our minds of what the perfect Spring Break is as depicted in countless movies. We are ready to party hard. With that in mind ... we all wanna make it back alive to continue on our path of this wonderful journey for a college education.


1. Rally. Do you really want a hangover at 8 p.m.? I don't think so.

2. Buy souvenirs. I know you want a new tank top to wear every day. 

3. Spend most of your hours on the beach. You don't want to come back from Spring Break with no color. Being the pale friend is no fun.

4. Take a ton of pictures. These will help you remember the week for years to come.

5. Remember to have #NOREGRETS. What happens on Spring Break, stays on Spring Break. (The Vegas Rule.)


1. Don't do anything in public that you wouldn't want your mother seeing a picture of. Your friends will take pictures, I promise. You don't want this as wedding blackmail years later.

2. Don't get sick in public. If you don't feel good, go back to your hotel.

3. Don't leave any friends behind. They most likely won't be comfortable with the area. They may not even speak the native language.

4. Don't get caught. Take this whichever way you want.

5. Don't break the 'Vegas Rule'. I don't care if it is 10 years down the line.
