Guilty Pleasure (n): something, such as a movie, television program, or piece of music, that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard.

Aka: The sh*t you like to do that you don't really want people knowing about. Just as a heads up: we all have them. Especially us guys—it's impossible not to. I'm just brave enough to expose some of these pleasures we have, to all of you.

1. Music

(^ Me when "Bad Blood" came out)

Whether it's Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, or Beyoncé—every guy has rocked out to one of their hits in the privacy of their room. Who are you kidding, I know you screamed "Blank Space" in the bar when it came out.

2. Chick Flicks

Deep down, despite constant complaints to your girlfriend, when she forces you to watch that sappy chick-flick, you know you liked it. It's okay—no judging here.

3. TV Shows

"Walking Dead," "Breaking Bad," "Game of Thrones"—yeah I know all you guys love those. But at the end of the day, you still want to be Chuck Bass from "Gossip Girl." I repeat, no judging.

4. Disney

Yes, Disney movies are usually intended for 10 year old boys and girls but, if I say "Let's get down to business..." there is about a 100 percent chance you are shouting "to defeat the Huns!" back at me.

5. Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

You would think that the hottest girls in the world prancing around on stage in their underwear would be applauded by every boy in America, however, many keep their love for this show on the DL. Something about liking fashion shows isn't a big hit (but this one gets the OK from me).

6. Dancing

(^ Me, when I go out)

The casual side-step and clap on the dance floor is cool and all, but deep down you're just waiting until your date looks away so you can twerk a little.

7. Pedicures/Manicures

Personally, I've never done this myself, but I have heard rave reviews from many other boys brave enough to share this guilty pleasure of theirs with me. A nice foot massage can do wonders for the soul.

8. Waxing

We all know those brows aren't natural.


9. Gossiping

Everyone gossips, really. The difference is that boys don't categorize it that way. And we don't really discuss it as that either. A boy's hair is full of secrets...

10. Wine

Wine has gotten swept away by girls and "wine nights" and weird hanging ornaments with writing on them. But us boys can't deny its tastiness, we just don't make Facebook statuses about it.

11. Singing In The Shower

Every boy does this. I don't even care if they say they don't. When you step in the shower you become Usher. That is your confession.

Pleasures are pleasures, guilty or not. Just be yourself and do you. And keep practicing your twerk.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"

2. "Australia"

3. "Hold On"

4. "Shelf"

5. "Can't Have You"

6. "Turn Right"

7. "SOS"

8. "Sorry"

9. "Black Keys"

10. "First Time"

11. "Hey Baby"

12. "Paranoid"
