5 Reasons to Call Your Mom

Posted on Saturday, September 12th, 2015 by Kallie Eberling

We are a few weeks into the school year… If you have not called your mom, or any family yet, pick up the phone right now!

  1. She is Always Right: If you need any advice whether it be about classes or how to cook dinner, she probably has a few helpful hints.
  2. It’s a Comforting Voice: It’s always nice to feel a super familiar voice! You can feel homesick at any stage in your college career, and it’s always nice to get a little comfort and reassurance from home!
  3. To Find Out News About Home: Maybe your dog did something cute or your younger brother has a girlfriend… This stuff is important!
  4. She Will Motivate You to Get Working: …even if you don’t want her to. Whenever I call my mom, I always seem to remember everything I need to do! As I’m telling her about my day or week I am reminded of things I had forgotten, but need to do. She will also likely encourage you to turn off the Netflix for awhile to hit the books.
  5. She’s Your Mom: Nuff’ said.

Usually calling family is the most convenient for me, but another option is Facetime or Skype. If you choose the latter, you have the option to see your pets! 🙂

My mom and I!

Hi! My name is Kallie Eberling. I’m excited to be continuing my education this year at Concordia! I have finally decided, after changing my mind multiple times, on an English Education major. I hope to obtain a minor in Political Science, and I am thinking about law school upon graduation.

I’m from the small town of Plentywood, Montana. It’s located about 10 minutes from Canada and 15 minutes from North Dakota. We only have one stoplight, but we are the biggest town in our county!

At Concordia, I am involved in the forensics team and various clubs. I participate in policy debate in forensics, and really enjoy it!

I’m happy to share my experience here at Concordia, and I hope you can find some useful tips from my blog!
