10 Signs Your Best Friend Is Your Soulmate

10 Signs Your Best Friend Is Your Soulmate

You can stop looking now.

Regardless of whether or not you’re currently in a relationship, your best friend might be your true soul mate. No, a soul mate doesn’t have to be the other half in a romantic relationship. It's true that a soul mate is your other half, but that doesn’t mean you have to be in love with them. It’s when two souls just understand each other. You feel a connection with that person that you’ve never felt with anyone else before. You feel as though someone finally understands. Here are some signs that your BFF might be this person:

  • They can tell by your texts that you’re not all right, and they have no problem calling you out on it. You can’t hide your emotions from them- you could see them for five minutes and they’d instantly know your mood is altered, no matter how hard you try and fake happiness.
  • You want them to be happy, just as much as they want you to be happy. You’d do anything to make them smile, even if it means sacrificing your own comfort or happiness, and you know they’d totally do the same for you.

  • They’re your ride-along buddy, your permanent shotgun passenger, your navigator and DJ. They know what songs you love and what songs are completely off limits. They know when to tell you to stop for coffee or fast food. They’re always down for an adventure and probably love the same places as you anyway.
  • You probably finish each other’s sentences, or read each other’s minds- but not in a creepy way. You just always have the same ideas and thought-process. You both point out the weird stuff in a movie or laugh at the same corny jokes. “OMG, I was just going to say that” is a common line in your friendship.
  • You can be yourself. You can be completely weird, loud, crazy, drunk, whatever, and you’re finally comfortable acting that way around someone for once. They don’t judge you for the strange things you do, or for wanting to be wild and crazy one night. They accept you for who you are, and love you even more for it.
  • You basically live together. Your home is their home, and vice versa. They’re the person you call when you’re already outside of their house. Their parents don’t even flinch when you walk through the door without knocking. You make yourself at home because you’re welcome to. You live there, too. You’re apart of the family and probably have designated seats on the couch or a designated bedroom to sleep in.
  • You have “inside jokes”, or little sayings and phrases that no one else understands, but you state them loud and proud publicly and die of laughter afterward.
  • You know each other’s Starbucks orders and lunch orders by heart and never ask if they want anything, you just assume they do and they assume you picked them up something, anyway.
  • It’s a give and take. You never take advantage of each other’s offerings and always repay them when you can. You let them know how much you appreciate them and they do the same for you.
  • They know exactly what makes you laugh and smile and they know exactly what you love to do, and have no problem supporting you in your ventures because they just understand you.

A Letter To My Go-To Aunt

Happiness is having the best aunt in the world.

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.

Home For The Summer

Home sweet home.


Now that school is finally over, I packed up all my stuff and finally got to go home and be with my family again. More specifically, I got to see my dog.

Moving out was a hassle. I didn't realize how much crap I actually had. Sure, it started off not too bad when I moved in, but over the course of the year, more and more stuff came into my possession. By the time I was supposed to move out, it was like I had twice the amount of stuff from when I started. It took two days to officially move all of my belongings back home.

Since being home, I've noticed a couple of things.

First of all, my mom missed me a lot. Hi, Mom. :)

It's not like when I went to college, I completely disappeared from my mom's life or anything like that. We talked on the phone often, and she would visit me sometimes to take me and my sister out to dinner or something with our dad. Also, with the number of times I had gotten sick throughout the entire year, it was like every other week I came home.

The first day I came home, she made a run to the store and called me asking if there was anything I needed, and I said not to my knowledge. She came home with a crap ton of my favorite ice cream and snacks, just because.

Another thing she's been doing is cooking every night. My mom works during the week, so understandably when she gets home, she doesn't always feel like slaving away in front of the stove to make dinner. However, for whatever reason, my mom has made it her sole mission to make me gain 20 pounds by the time the fall semester comes around.

She knows I hated the food at school, so whenever she cooks dinner, she mentions that I love being home because I get to have real food. I mean, I'm not complaining. Who doesn't love a homecooked meal?

I can tell my dad is pretty happy about me being home with the new change in the menu.

Second of all, for the time being, I have A LOT of free time.

Now, this will change once I get my summer job, but as of right now, I have nothing to do. Both of my parents work during the week, and I didn't really keep in touch with the majority of my high school peers, so I have no one to hang out with. I mean, I could see some of my college buddies and sorority sisters, but everyone lives far as hell away.

This is kind of difficult for me. Not because I can't just spend time alone; I have no problem with that. However, I'm used to having a full schedule. Aside from just being used to it, I like it. I'm one of those people who likes to keep busy.

When I'm out and about or have a lot of things to do, I feel productive. Now, I just feel lazy because I literally have nothing to do. To try and counteract this, I've resorted to doing a personal project throughout the summer.

I just need something to occupy my time. Boredom sucks.

I'm glad to be home, though. Living at college is great, sure, and you have all this freedom to do whatever you want and you won't get in trouble or whatever, but I don't really care about all of that. Family is very important to me.

My mom, as crazy as she is, is my best friend, I tell her everything. Living away from that can really stink. Makes me wonder if that is why I kept getting sick so much. Like it was my body's way of forcing me to go home and be with my family.

This summer is going to be a much-needed break from school. I'm excited to see where things go.
