  1. You have an obsession with baking.

  3. Even after you graduate.
  4. You send the aforementioned grandlittles care packages at school.
  5. Complete with baked goods, decorated cards, and stuffed animals.
  6. You craft more than Martha Stewart, because duh.
  7. And you may or may not have a scrapbook of your entire college experience.
  8. Your day wouldn’t be complete without a nap.
  9. You have a matching pajama set too.
  10. And some matching slippers.
  11. And maybe even a matching blanket, because you are always cold.
  12. Speaking of which, you may even know how to sew your own blanket.
  13. You eat dinner at 5 p.m.
  14. And are in bed by 10 p.m.

  16. You always wear leggings, and never real pants.
  17. But you would never think about working out, ever.
  18. Unless it’s yoga or a light swim.

  33. Mainly because you don’t know how to work any of them.
  34. And you don’t like putting your information online.
  35. Your friend group knows not to depend on you when you go out.
  36. Because even though you may be the matriarch, you still know how to party hard.
