my mother's universally accepted truisms:
(edit: this is not a malicious entry, it is a "i miss my mommy sooooooo much" entry!!!)

me: describe me in one word (for college app wkst)
mommy: noisy

mommy: you know you are really 멋있어 until you open your mouth? you LOOK intelligent and sharp, but once you start talking that all breaks down. you shouldn't talk.

mommy: no one is going to date you or marry you if you keep eating like that. it costs too much to feed you. this is why i will have to live with you until i die. 내 팔짜야!! MY LIFE IS SO SAD!!!

me: i wanna get short shorts
mommy: like hotpants?
me: yes
mommy: but your legs are like tree trunks!

mommy: you only say two things: "i DON'T understaaaaaaand" and "i'm gonna diiiiiiiiiiie". my oldest daughter is stupid and diseased. 내 팔짜야!! my life is so sad.

mommy: i don't see YOU walking around. i see a 돈떵어리 (giant chunk of money) walking around.

me chasing my sister and puppy around the house
mommy: 임지혜!!! stop running!! you'll break my house!!

(i call home)
mommy: what do you want? you know it scares me when you call? you always need money or want me to buy you something or send you something. go study.

me: you NEVER remember anything i say!
mommy: you talk ALL the time. you say a LOT of things. most of them are useless and stupid. if i remembered everything you said, i'd be the world's biggest idiot.

mommy: you know i am so scared of you? you are so cranky. any time you ask for something or complain i have to fix it right away. i am so scared when you're not happy. other daughters treat their moms like queens. but no, i am your slave. i tried to be a good mom but now i know i did it all wrong. (shaking her head)

the REASON why i started missing my mommy so much? i wanted someone to 귀파 me. i am super anal about stuff and my ear hygiene is one of those things. at duke i got into the habit of going to student health just to have my ears irrigated. it was so amazingly clean and fresh feeling. usually also, whenever i go home i have my mom do it for me. i've been wondering lately what to do about my ears (it's been nearly 6 months!) and so i kept missing my mommy. =] ㅠ.ㅠ

"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but 
whose place no one else can take."
-- Cardinal Mermillod

"The commonest fallacy among women is that simply having children makes one a mother—which is as absurd as believing that having a piano makes one a musician."
-- Sydney J. Harris

"A mother is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnecessary."
-- Dorothy Canfield Fisher

Awww...I just Skype home (I need love!) and my mommy sees me gnawing on my thumbs (BIG pet peeve of hers) and says "stop it, or I'm going to hit you!" So I turn off the video o.O

And then she whines and I turn it back on because I am a good daughter...
