Why I (Think) I'll Be A Good Mom

Hopefully I'll be as good as my mom.

Why I (Think) I'll Be A Good Mom
Karlie Frazier

So most of you don't know this, but I am the oldest of four children and I feel like that has prepared me somewhat for what it's like to be a mom. Now I can't say that I am ready to be a mom because I don't even like to cook myself dinner or take myself to the dentist, but I think that if I needed to do it right now, I could. I'm not sure why I would have to become a mother, but let's just pretend that we've entered an alter-universe and I am now a mother. EEk!

The first thing that I would be prepared for is the arguing and bargaining. Now I know I was a terrible kid, you can ask my mother, but I sure knew how to bargain. I would do something we all liked to do when we were younger and any time we don't want to do something we've been asked to do, STALL. Dude, I was a good staller. I could lay on the stairs and I could pretend that I was doing what I was asked to, but as soon as I heard my mom coming near me, I would actually start doing what I was asked. I know for a fact that this was something that we all did as kids, so don't even try to deny it.

I also know how to deal with the constant losing of things. In my house, there are six people and I have no idea how my mother always knows where everything is, no matter whose stuff it is. My brother could ask her where a single shoe is and she would just know. I feel like that would be something I would be good at because I have a pretty good memory and I would be good at making something up in the case I actually didn't know where something was. However, I'm not very good at organizing things, so my house would probably be a mess.

I don't know if I would be good at the comforting thing because I've been told I don't really have a heart. I've been known to tell someone to suck it up if they were crying over something stupid or because they lost something. I'm not very good at the comforting thing, but I am good at the first aid bit. I am currently getting a degree in Public Health and I worked as a life guard for three years and have three younger siblings, so I think I know how to put on a Bandaid and make a boo boo not hurt. I'm also pretty good at coming up with songs about anything.

I think that I could someday be a good mom because I would never stop trying like my mom. I would maybe be as good as her if I try hard enough. I think I'd be good because I always dance in a store when a song is playing no matter who's watching. I will always play a game to make someone happy again and to not cry. I am pretty good at disciplining people and I am again the first of four children who has seen lots of different styles of discipline. I hope one day that I am a good mom like my mom and my grandma!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
