Higher standards

Today, my mom fought with me again for missing an "important" 4th of July family barbecue. I was working until the morning, finishing grad school applications. There are always family events, and also apparently my brother missing the same barbecue to party with friends is perfectly fine. FML

I agree that applications are important. So is family.
I don't know about your family, but have you missed multiple family gatherings? She may just miss you and is probably proud of your decision to pursue grad school.

The 4th of July was a Saturday this year, so no one was going to look at your application for a few days, at least.

You were a dick to ditch your family like that and your mom knew it.

I wonder if your mom has written off your worthless brother. Maybe you are her favorite because you are accomplished and have a bright future. Since you ARE her fave, she wants to see you more. Just a thought.
