You are my hero.

Thank you for bringing me into this world and believing in me before I could myself. For pushing me to be my best and putting your life on hold to focus on mine.

Thank you for telling me I was beautiful since day one. When I was at my largest, ugliest, and lowest. For always seeing the glimmer in my eyes and the spark. For always making me feel my best when I was at my worst.

Thank you for teaching me morals and values. For making it clear that I should treat everyone the way they I want to be treated. For teaching me how to trust the universe and believe in myself. For promoting self love and love overall.

Thank you for forcing me to believe I am princess and only good enough for a prince. For teaching me that I need to love myself before anyone can love me. For teaching me that romance is not dead and that I deserve roses and candy and praise at my feet. For teaching me that I am enough for my myself and anyone else.

Thank you for pampering me with only the best. From hypoallergenic diapers to homemade baby food, you really outdid yourself. For the home cooked meals weekly and packed lunches daily. For the muffins when I was having a bad day and the homeopathic remedies to cure all my colds.

Thank you for teaching me healthy ways. For the gluten free dairy free lessons and the eat right for your blood type facts etched into my brain. For making me aware of what is good and bad for my body. For teaching me to love cooking, baking, and preparing all things good and right.

Thank you for being my TV series cuddle on the couch always buddy. For the late night This Is Us tear sessions and laugh so hard we cry youtube videos. For always wanting to watch new shows and be together for as long as possible. For the late night laughs and gossip sessions.

Thank you for allowing me to explore who I was and am all my life. For letting me embarrass myself by wearing tutus one year too long because I wanted to be a princess. Thank you for letting me be one. You taught me to not care about what others think, thank you for that.

Thank for the two hour long phone calls so I can vent all my college life related issues to you. Thank you for always listening. For always caring and providing me with advice and stability. Thank you for being the best and only therapist I will ever need.

Thank you for teaching me to be altruistic. For showing me the ropes of life and making it clear that I am worth it.

If I end up to be as good of a mother to my children as you are to me, then I know I did something right.

Thank you, Mom.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
