Yes, My Mom Is My Best Friend

Many people criticize those who have parents as best friends but sometimes that is okay. Parents can be your best friend and perform their duties as a parents. Fortunately for me, I have a mom as my best friend, and that is okay!


When I first left for college, I thought it would be the best four years of my life. I am currently a sophomore soon to be junior. It has been difficult for me to hold friends close to me without pushing them away due to my have trust issues. Although, I still have a few good friends here at college that I hangout with on occasion, I do not have one person that I do everything with. I do have close friends but they all go to different colleges so unfortunate we can only hangout when I am home. So my mom became my best friend.


I think everyone thinks their parents are a pain and get annoyed when their parents constantly want to talk to them and have them a question and worry about you. Although sometimes, my mother gets on my nerves, especially when it comes to being an adult, I tell my mom everything.

She is someone that I can talk to about anything whether it be about what I am eating, the new celebrity couples, or even how horrible my day went. She is the person I go to when I have questions on whether I can put my sweater in the dryer or when I need advice on a makeup look that I want to try. I am always sending her videos, TikToks and memes of animals, makeup or things that we would consider an inside joke.

Someone may think it is weird how close my mom and I are but I wouldn't want it anyway. If I am not by her side, it is probably because I am with my dogs, at school or I am at work.

She has become my best friend and I trust my mom with my entire heart and as I get older, the harder and harder I find it to leave my home to go on trips or school. Whenever I do not get a good morning/ good night text from my mom, I find myself texting or calling her just to make sure she is okay.

My mom is my number one supporter who has been there for me through everything. She was there for me as I got ready for my first date, my first prom, graduations and some of the most traumatic times of my life. She has seen me at my lowest, my highest and during the times that she probably questioned me. My love and appreciation for my mom are endless and I am grateful for her.

If you are reading this mom, know that I love you so much and I am proud to have you as my mother.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
