For as long as I can remember, my friends have identified me as the mom friend of the group. This is the friend who makes sure everyone is taken care of, is always the biggest supporter, and is overall the mom outside of the house.

After careful consideration and a lot of surveying, I have identified the main 8 reasons everyone loves the mom friend of the group.

1. She is always cooking or baking for her friends.

In most cultures, mothers are typically always feeding their guests food and it is no different for the mom friend. Family dinners are a popular gathering amongst friends where they all get together, cook, eat, and just hang out. The mom friend is almost always responsible for putting on these special little events.

2. She randomly reaches out to see how you're doing

Giphy

Whether she knows you are having a crappy day or a fantastic one, the mom friend is always checking in on you to see how you are doing. It could be a simple "Hey, how's your day going?" to "I miss you let's chat." Mom is always there to check in on you.

3. She is the most responsible one

Giphy

The mom friend makes a check list of everything we could possibly need every time we go on an outing together. She has all the phone charges, an itinerary, and always has snacks.

4. She scolds you when you know you need it

Giphy

As your parent outside the home, it is our job to make sure you know when you're making a bad choice or you have done something stupid. Yeah, it's annoying to hear it from your friend, but she really only wants what is best for you (and you know it).

5. She is your biggest fan

Giphy

The mom friend is always the first person you text/call with good news. She expressed the most enthusiasm and always has something encouraging to say. She shows the most excitement when you achieve new goals and will always be there to cheer you on.

6. She is the best listener

Giphy

Mothers are instinctively good listeners, and it is the same for the mom friend. She listens to what you have to say and uses active listening techniques to make sure you feel heard as she attempts to understand exactly how you are feeling. Active listening allows others to put themselves in your shoes.

7. She gives the best advice

Giphy

Being a good listener and giving good advice usually goes hand-in-hand. When someone is a good listener, they are able to provide the best advice. She takes in all the information you give her and will work with you to find a solution to any problem you present to her.

8. She loves you with her whole heart

Giphy

One of my personal beliefs as a mom friend, in order to truly be the mom of the group, your heart must know no bounds. The mom friend has a heart so big there is always room for everyone in her life. She cares and loves everyone she meets no questions asked. You will never feel unloved once you have found the mom friend.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
