Dear Mama, Thank You

Dear Mama, Thank You

Dear Mama,

Thank you. Thank you for always loving me. I know that having me at a young age was not easy and I know that we have had some rough patches, but I love you and I appreciate all you do for me.

I appreciate the love that you show me even when I don't always do the right thing. I appreciate all the sacrifices that you have made and I promise one day I'll make it all up to you. I hate seeing people have more than you because they blow off their responsibilities. I hate seeing you work so hard, yet have so little. One day you'll have it all. I appreciate the type of woman you are. It takes an incredible woman to raise three children on her own, but you are doing it quite well. Even though you feel like you may fail sometimes, you are succeeding way more than you realize.

I know I picked an expensive college to go to, but never once did you say that we wouldn't be able to afford it. Each time you said that we would make it happen and we did. Together. You are the most amazing woman in the world and I could not love you more. Even though we still have our arguments, I have no idea what I would do with you.

Moving so far away from you made me realize how much I need you. Maybe not physically, but mentally and emotionally. I find myself calling you or texting you more often and missing you way more than you may realize. I could not be any more thankful that God blessed me with you. I love you so much mama and I hope you know that no matter what I will always go to war for you!

Thank you for everything that you have provided me with, especially my attitude. I know you hate it when I get an attitude, but I hope you realize that it came straight from you. I find myself looking at old photos of you and how much we resemble each other. I also find myself saying things and then thinking to myself how much I sound like you, which scares me. A lot. I wouldn't, however, mind growing up to be half the woman you are.

I could not imagine my life without you nor would I ever want to. I love you to the moon and back!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
