I’m getting to that age where I realize that my mom is normally right and I wish I would have listened to her. My summer would probably be a lot better if I had. I might even like my job (I absolutely HATE the summer job I have now). Here are a few things that I should have listened to my mom about:
- Mom - “Caitlyn, you should get a job at outback. You would make good tips.” Me - ”Mom, you know I don’t like waitressing.”
Well as it turns out I probably would have liked that a lot better than what I’m doing now. And it’s only open from 4pm-10pm. And 2 of my friends work there.
2. Mom - “Caitlyn, you should see if you can be a volleyball ref for the summer coed league.” Me - “Mom, reffing for this league would be so much harder than reffing IM at school. I don’t think I should do it.”
I totally could have done it and I probably would have loved it.
3. Mom - “Caitlyn, I think it would be better if you study abroad over the summer. Why don’t you do it this summer? (she said this to me back in fall semester 2010)” Me - ”Mom, I want to go for a whole semester.”
As it turns out I can’t go for a whole semester because I am doing research and I need to be at school for it. So I should have gone this summer.
Even though I have just realized how many times my mom has been right in the past couple months I will still probably do things that she thinks I shouldn’t do and ignore things that she thinks I should do. But hey I guess that is what being a 20 year old college student is about sometimes.
