Guys are great friends to have and here is a few reasons why.

11 Reasons Guy Best Friends Are Some Of The Best Friends You Can Have
Skylar Meyers

I'm so thankful to be surrounded by some really great guys in my life, but I am especially grateful for my guy best friends.

1. They are straight up with you

Don't get me wrong. I love my girl BFFs (shoutout to all of you homies!), but sometimes it takes 20 minutes for us to talk through everything before arriving at "Oh yeah, that's not good" or "Oh, he does like me."

Guys are just like, "Don't do that" or "Just reply to the man."

2. They are always down to grab food

I love that I can just call one of them up and say "Wanna grab food?" They always respond with a "Ya boi."

3. They're not afraid to make fun of you (and can usually take whatever you throw back at them) 

Well, most of them can dish it out AND take it, but I wouldn't say that's true for all...

4. They can make me laugh

Like crying on the floor laughing about the dumbest things.

5. They're really helpful when telling me if a crush is trash

This is one of the best because they're guys, and guys know guys. They offer great advice about other males and will tell me if "Nah he's trash." It saves lots of time and heartbreak, they know what they're talking about.

6. They're a good shoulder to cry on

This one is pretty great because sometimes you just need to sit and cry and while they listen.

7. Good dates to parties

There are no expectations out of the night and you can have a great time with your best friend.

8. Can always tell when something is wrong and offer advice

Maybe it's because I'm fine is used a lot, but my guy friends can tell right away if I'm having a bad day. They give pretty damn good advice as well.

9. They ask for advice

It's nice to feel like you can return the favor and it's especially fun when they ask you for girl advice.

10. Hella straight up about what you look like in your outfit

This is one of my favorites because they have no reason to lie to you about what you look like. No competition with them and they aren't just saying you look nice because they are obligated to.

11. Encouraging, funny, caring, ect

I wouldn't change my friendships with my guy best friends for the world. I am so thankful to have them all in my life.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
