8 Times You've Definitely Called Your Mom In College

8 Times You've Definitely Called Your Mom In College

"Hey mom..."


College is fun, but at times it can be difficult. Suddenly you're living on your own and you have to learn how to do things without your mom's help. Well, I shouldn't say completely on your own, because there are those times when you have to call your mom and ask her how to do normal everyday things. Here are 10 times you have probably called your mom while in college.

1. "Do I wash my darks in cold or warm water?"

Chances are you haven't mastered the art of laundry yet.

2. "Can I put this in a microwave?"

Does anyone honestly know what they can/ cannot put in a microwave?

3. "Can you transfer money into my account?"

Because in college, online shopping and Uber Eats is very important (and expensive).

4. "What's the Netflix password again?"

In those rare cases that you get locked out of your Netflix account.

5. "Should I go to the doctor?"

When you're coughing and sneezing, you need professional advice from your mom whether or not you should take a trip to the health center.

6. "How do I remove the stain from my shirt?"

If you just happen to get jungle juice on your favorite white shirt, you're going to need help from mom.

7. "What's my social security number"

You will surprisingly need this number for a lot of things. But honestly, does anyone have their social security number memorized?

8. "Just wanted to say hi!'

Being away from your mom can be hard. For all those times that we don't know how to live on our own, moms are always there to tell us what to do.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

A Letter To The Moms In My Life

The urban dictionary provides plenty of definitions for what a mother is.


The urban dictionary provides plenty of definitions for what a mother is like: "the best person on earth because she raised you to be who you are and probably loves you no matter what" or "the most amazing, strong, loving, and heroic woman you will ever know."

To my mother, I want to thank you for raising me to be independent, self-sufficient and driven.

Because of you, I am so much stronger than I ever imagined.

To my boyfriend's mother, I want to thank you for being the mother to the man I love.

Because of you, I have a kind, generous man to take care of me and cherish me. I have a second motherly figure in addition to my own to rely on.

To my grandma, I want to thank you for being a rock for me, and our whole family.

Because of you, our family is seemingly capable of anything. You are so loving and supportive and it has a lasting effect on everyone you meet.

I never knew how blessed I was to have the women in my life until I moved away to college and now that I know, I can't repay them enough. There's no way I would be who I am today without the influence of the incredible women in my life.
