Gus and Shawn’s Friendship From “Psych” Reflects The Bond I Have With My Friends

My friends and I are incredibly close to the point where we can finish each others...sandwiches. (Yeah, I know that's an oldie.)

But, we're also close enough that we have a bunch of inside jokes and references that one would never know outside the boundaries of our friendship.

It's reasons like these and also because my friends and I also have crazy film references that no one else gets, that we remind me of Shawn and Gus from the tv show, Psych. They're both hilarious and know each other well enough to hold each other back and push each other's buttons. They also have a few catch phrases and lines that cement their life long friendship and bond even more.

I absolutely love this show for the comedy and the endless film references and quips. But, more than anything else, I love this show because it reminds me of what great friendships and relationships should be — full of equal amounts of love and loving annoyance.

1.Being overly excited about what you love

Giphy

I always get extremely excited about things and there isn't a friend around who can relate to my niche interest. But, with my best of friends, I always have someone to love obscure movies and books with or get really excited about German Shepherds.

2. Tell your most intimate thoughts at the moment

Giphy

Who needs Twitter and an active following when you have a best friend you can tell your every thought to? At least, that's what I think.

The best part about having a best friend is that they are obligated to listen to every mind burst your pea brain has. (That's part of it right? The friendship contract?)

3. Someone to celebrate every victory with

Giphy

Every time that I do something that I am very proud of, I tell my best friends first because I know how supportive they will be of me. I love hearing back what my friends think about my writing or hear them saying that they're proud of me. Even having a friend come to watch me at an event is incredibly supportive.

4. Having a constant and supportive wingperson

Giphy

If you ever need someone to talk you up, in any situation really, then my best friend is the person for me. She knows me well enough to cover my best qualities and enough to hide my worst ones. It's like having an encyclopedia of you present your information to others before you (as I usually do) have an opportunity to mess things up first.

5. Have someone who really knows how to push your buttons

Giphy

Even though they can be annoying, my best friends keep me on my toes by pushing my out of my comfort zone, even if it is just bothering me constantly. My patience is high, especially since I was a teacher, but some times you need someone to bother you like they know you because you feel closer as friends.

It's being around friends like mine and seeing friends like these two that make me so happy. At the end of the day, our friends are amazing people that support us and help us figure out who we are in the scope of things. If you're lucky enough to find someone along the way who will be there for you no matter what and ready to have your back, you're in the best place.

I am very thankful for my friends and wonderful shows like this one that push forward what friendships can really be — full of wonderful experiences. If you haven't watched Psych yet I heavily recommend it and I know that you will have a new favorite show by the end of it.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

5 Reasons To Put The Damn Mask On, And Stop Fussing With It

Ilana Stein

With the ever-changing reality of our world due to COVID-19, there has been one constant throughout these past unforeseen months, masks. Ever since coronavirus hit the ground running in the US, the CDC has been recommending social distancing and mask-wearing to stop the rapid spread.

Many people have been great about adhering to these policies, mandates, and suggested uses, but others, not so much.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
