A Letter To My Psychic-Psycho
Sydney Friedman

This week, there hasn't been a quick answer to my question of "What am I going to write?" Usually, it comes to me immediately. I sit down and spew out a few hundred words of my thoughts. These past few days, however, I’ve been debating. Do I write about midterms? No. Then I decided I should write about a person. And, at that moment, the idea came to me. This person needs a little appreciation right now, and I think it’s about time I publicly announce my love for her.

Cameron Leigh Bell,

(Ron, preferably)

I honestly don’t know where to begin.

We have the same damn middle name for God's sake; we’re clearly meant to be. You came into my world around the most uncomfortable stage of my preteen life, and we instantly morphed into criminals together. The trouble the two of us would get ourselves into must be hidden away in a lock and safe until the end of eternity. (I won’t tell if you won’t.)

Don’t you worry, though -- I still have my laptop with all of the videos we used to take. We surely gave our parents a run for their money. Your insanity matches mine; the way in which we can relate to one another is unlike anything else. Your ability to bring out my crazy/weird side is such a unique trait. There is no one else on this planet who has seen me in my most compromised state. You make others feel this immediate sense of comfort once you meet them and it is incredibly inspiring. You are such a great contrast to my loud personality. You calm me in a way that others can’t. You also aren’t afraid to put me in my place when things get too far between Drewby and I. You snap me into shape. I appreciate your honesty more than you know. Whether it be about the “ugly” clothing I choose to wear or my ability to take life too far, you are always there to set me straight.

And, the most important thing of all:

You are my superhero. You are the strongest, most incredible human being I have ever met in my life. From the writers of "This Is Us," “you took the sourest lemon that life has to offer and turned it into something resembling lemonade.” You keep pushing forward every single day, thriving. Although you have been hit hard, harder than anyone could ever deserve, you still have this spark in you that is undeniable. I cannot even begin to imagine going through what you have had to endure. I can honestly say that for once, I am at a loss for words. You blow me away with everything you do. You have accomplished so much in such a little amount of time.

I consider myself an honorary Bell, especially since I named your dog, Luna. You are also clearly an additional Friedman. I mean, who else would wake up mid-nap and drive twenty minutes JUST to get back in bed and snuggle with me? I hope you look in the mirror and understand how utterly remarkable you are.

I miss you, woman, very much so. I may be a bit selfish wishing you were back in Cleveland talking to me on the regular, but I am so happy that you are in New Orleans blowing the entire population away.

Thank you for being the best “significant other” a girl could ask for in this screwed up world of ours. THANK YOU for being the sugar to my lemons (and vice versa).

I love love love you. More than these words could ever express.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive. It took years of misfires before I finally found a new active passion for weight lifting. Getting started is never easy, and setting up for success is the best plan of action to assist anyone in your life who is thinking about starting their own journey. These are a few items you can gift for the fitness rookie in your life:

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
