To The Girls Who Have More Guy Friends Than Girl Friends

This is written with the highest respect and regard for those individuals who respect themselves and others enough to have a good friend of the opposite sex without expectations or pressures.

A large debate is whether or not girls and guys can "just be friends." I'm here to say it is possible with self-control and with fine lines. But, I can't say it is impossible because I have it for myself.

I grew up with a brother three years older than I with an inseparable relationship. I find comfort and appreciation from men in my life who hold girls to a respectable standard and do not settle nor tolerate the drama queens; and moreover, who do not let my character resemble that of a drama queen. From my brother, I find his mental and emotional discipline to be his most worthy trait, thus I look for that in men and encourage it in my closest guy friends. (I won't tolerate drama kings). Here's my appreciation of those guys in my life. Guy friends can be easier to get along with. We girls can be harsh, unforgiving and hella dramatic.

I don't want to harp on the female side much. My best friend in the world is a girl. I'm by no means sexist nor am I a feminist, but rather, I appreciate the guy friends of mine who have been there for me more than not.

I hope you guys out there know who you are. You're my go-tos. We converse with ease and without unnecessary pressure or expectations. We can pick up where we left off and feel like nothing has ever changed between us. You're like family to me; people of acceptance and understanding and I hope you find those same characteristics in me. You give me the "guy perspective" when I need it without question. You support me and talk me through my questions and decisions. I appreciate that.

Thank you for your trusting character and for your simplistic love that makes me feel at home and held up. You know me, so don't let me make decisions that will land me on my face or hurt the next person. I will be a sister if and when you need, and you can be my brother from another mother.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
