7 Times You Really Just Need Your Mom Around

Where my mama at?!

The relationship between a mother and child is something that can’t be explained. Moms are so important in life. They are the superhuman that deserves to be apart of Marvel. No matter how old you get, your mom is one of the most important people in your life. They happen to be there for every major event in your life. Here are some times when you really need your mom!

1) When You Get Heartbroken

No one will love you more than your mom. When someone breaks your heart, she’s normally the first person to comfort you. She will provide you with love but will also remind you of your worth. No boy is worth your tears! She will be there to tell you that this pain will go away and you’ll be stronger than ever.

2) When You Learn To Cook

Honestly, I think most moms get a kick out of this. Your mom is there to not only tease you, but patiently walk you through the steps. Turns out we should’ve paid more attention in the kitchen. Who knew how difficult it is to boil pasta!

3) When You’re Sick

Your mom provides you with the best care that no one can compare to. Even though we’re at the age where we are capable of taking care of ourselves, our moms just do it better. It feels as though we get better faster when she’s the one making you soup and covering you with blankets.

4) Life Advice Guru

Your mom is wonderful at giving life advice. Feel like moving to Australia? Want to change your program? Don’t know what you’re doing anymore? She’s there to guide you and spread some wisdom. No matter what you do in life she will support you. She will be able to clear your head to make the decision that’s right for you.

5) Pinocchio? Don’t Know him.

Your mom will be so honest with you all the time that you’ll wish she wasn’t sometimes. Many of your friends will tell you what you want to hear. Your mom will do the complete opposite. She’s not trying to hurt your feelings, she’s trying to help you grow. She’ll call you on your BS and won’t get upset when you get mad at her. You have about a 30 minute rebound rate where you’ll realize she’s right. You also just don’t know how to stay mad at her!

6) When Your Bank Account = $0

Adult living is tough. You’re still learning how to budget and prioritize your time. Your bank account is something that you rely quite a bit living away from home. Obviously, your mom will come to the rescue when you’ve completely broke the bank. She may bail you out by giving you money or she might remind you of your options. She will provide you with ideas on how to make money and will also remind you that she would love to have you home for the summer for free!

7) When You Need A Hug

Moms are always ready to give out free hugs. It’s rare when they get them so they appreciate every single one. As much as they love giving them, you love getting them! Hugs from your mom are one of a kind.

 

Your mom is one of your major supporters in life. She will be the person you run to for almost everything. If you haven’t had the chance today, remind your mom that you appreciate her. Let her know that she’s raised a strong, independent individual. Finally, let her know you love her with all your heart.

Does the of Your Accommodations Size Matter?

Does the of Your Accommodations Size Matter?

So you’ve finally settled into your apartment or residence dorm. You look around the room and realize if you were to starfish on the floor you could very well touch all four walls with your body. Your space is too small! Moving into a bigger apartment or room is not an option for many reasons. While size does matter, working with space is fairly easy. Here are some tips to make your small room or apartment look and feel bigger!

1) Fold-able Furniture

When seeking out furniture for your apartment or dorm room, try to find furniture that can be stored away nicely. Anything that can easily be folded, stacked or wheeled away will allow your space to feel open. When you’re not using the piece of furniture, just store it away until the next time you need it!

2) Glassy Look

Anything that is made of glass will instantly make your space look bigger because it’ll make the eyes believe that there is more space than there truly is. Tables are always a good buy with glass tops. Glass tables can be the desk for your dorm or a coffee table for your living room!

3) Clean Your Windows!

Clean your windows! While it should be on your chores list anyways, cleaning your windows will allow your room to feel bigger. Just like glass tables, clean windows will play tricks on the eyes about how much space is really in your apartment or dorm.

4) Visible Floors

It’s pretty simple. The more of the floor you see, the more room you have. If it’s your dorm room, keep your clothes off the floor. Take the time to fold them and put them away properly so that you have room to walk around. If it’s for your apartment, also keep your clothes off the floor, but also try to invest in furniture that you can see under. If you’re purchasing a couch or loveseat, invest in one with legs so that light can flow underneath. The more light moving in your room, the better!

5) Mirror, mirror!

You may have thought of this one on your own! When you were ready to purchase a nice mirror, the total cost came to about the same amount of money you owe to your credit card! Try and purchase smaller mirrors for cheaper and group them together to make it feel like one.

6) Netflix and Space

If you have a television and your space is small, contemplate mounting your tv! If you have space on your walls to do this, I would recommend it. It will free up floor space and will make the room feel bigger.

7) Corner Friendly

When placing furniture in your living space, try to keep the tallest pieces of furniture to the corners of the room! You can also place the largest pieces of furniture in the corner. If you have a huge bookshelf, consider placing them in the corners to allow the eyes to believe the room is bigger!

 

There you have it! Hopefully, these tips and tricks will help you in making your apartment or dorm room feel spacious. It all comes down to how you organize your space, so take the time to find a layout that truly works for you!
