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.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
