A Letter To My Psychic-Psycho

A Letter To My Psychic-Psycho

Thank you for being my mind reader when I need it most

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.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

7 Signals A Girl Will Try To Send You If She Likes You As More Than A Friend

It is never easy when a girl has to fully admit her feelings to a guy she likes, so instead, she sends slight signals in hopes that he picks up on her hints.

1. She can't stop smiling at you

She is happy to talk to you and to be in your presence, the smallest things that you do make her want to smile. She can't control the happiness inside and it comes out in a great big smile. In her head, she is just thinking about how much she enjoys spending time with you and how much she likes you.

2. She hugs you with both arms

Side hugs are common, easy, and very universal. She wants to give you full body hug because to show you she feels different about you than any other guy. With a full body hug she can rest her face on your chest and this just brings the two of you closer.

3. She makes direct eye contact

Direct eye contact is always a great sign. This means she is fully aware of everything you are saying and she is completely interested.

4. She scans your face and lips

Upon talking to you, she begins to scan your face. In this moment she is appreciating your attractiveness and completely zoned out. Forget you said anything to her because she probably was not listening. If she is looking at your lips then she definitely wants a kiss.

5. She says "Oh my god, stahhhp"

The 'I'm mad at you, but I'm flirting with you' slogan. She is trying to be cute and pick a fight with you so you can two can play around. She's hoping this will lead to cracking jokes

6. She adjusts her clothing

She is fidgety when your around because she has feelings for you and is nervous. She wants to look her best with you around, so she is subconsciously fixing herself so that nothing looks bad.

7. She sends you cute snap chats

Silly, crazy, and just straight up ugly snap chats are for friends. If her selfies are , done each time, then she cares a lot about how you see her and she wants you to see her at her best. She is not always looking for a compliment, but throw one her way and you will make her day.

Pay attention to the signs a girl is sending. Her body language and behavior around all come together for an important message, she likes you! A lot.
