Reasons Why Every Girl Needs A Guy Best Friend

Many people believe guys and girls can't be just friends, but I believe that is false. Guys can be more straight forward and help you more than girls can. So here are some reasons why every girl needs a guy best friend. 

1) They do not judge you. Girls can be very judgmental at times but with guys when they know you and don't like you in that way they see you differently and do not feel the need to judge.

2) They are your perfect wing man. With girls it's pretty obvious when your best friend talks to your crush they know something is up. When guys talk to guys they don't find it that obvious, which is super easy for your guy best friend to swoop in and ask about you 

3) Help you when you have guy troubles. Guys know how other guys think making it easier for them to tell you if they have a crush on you or how and why they act the way they do. 

4) They are always completely honest with you. Unlike a boyfriend if you ask if they like this outfit or if this makes you look fat they will lie to not hurt your feelings. Guy friends will tell you an honest answer because they really care about you and want you to know the truth.

5) There is never any drama. Girls can have drama any once in a while but with guys they just shake it off and they just go with the flow.

6) They teach you what they like in girls. As girls we never know what guys look for in a girl... with guy friends at least they can tell you what they look for in a girl and what they don't which can be similar or different for guys.

7) You can eat whatever you want without judgement. When you go on a date with a guy you sometimes watch what you eat so you don't look like you are pigging out. With girls sometimes they count the calories which makes you not want to eat something fattening. With guy best friends you can eat whatever you want and they do not care.

8) Teach you things your girl best friends can't teach you. They teach you how to do more manly things such as help you understand football, teach you lessons on guys, and how to love yourself by being you.

9) Your own personal body guard. When you have been through a bad breakup or feeling victimized your guy best friend will always be there and have you back no matter what. He is there for you and have his friends on call for backup in case anything were to happen to you. 

10) They love you like family. They see you as your little sister and nothing more. They love you no matter what happens or what they do. He is your best friend that will always be there for you no matter what.

It takes some time to find a best guy friend that you can trust and have your back no matter what. But having one is defiantly something that is essential in a girls life.

Facts About Peru

I was born in Lima, Peru and it is one of my favorite places in the world. In March I was able to go back and revisit my home. I want to share some facts about my culture and home, and hope one day you will be able to visit this beautiful country. 

Everyone always tells me that the food is their favorite, and there are so many varieties. Here are some of my favorites.
  • Ceviche- This is a dish that contains tilapia fillets that is cooked with lemon and has onions and peruvian corn and served with sweet potato and can be spicy. This dish is one of my favorites, but it's also not for everyone.
  • Inca Cola- This is a soda that is very popular in Peru. Its bright yellow, a lot of my friends said it tasted like bubble gum. Personally to me it doesn't, but I've been drinking it my whole life.
  • Alfajores- These are my all time favorite dessert. They are cookies with a sweet caramelized center, and covered in powdered sugar.
There are so any places to visit in Peru being such a beautiful country.
  • Machu Picchu- It is up in the Andes mountains and is one of the seven wonders of the world. Elevated up 2,430 m above sea level but it's defiantly worth the climb.
  • Lima- This is the capital of Peru, and the city I was born in. It is a beautiful city and you can looks out into the ocean.
  • The Peruvian flag is red and white 
  • Peru is the sixth largest producer of gold
  • A traditional dish in Peru is guinea pig 
Pictures from my trip

 These four photos were from a show I went to in Lima Called "Brisas Del Titicaca" where they served food and saw dances from different parts of Peru.

These are from a place in Chosica called "El Bosque." You can go swimming go up and hike all the way up to a mountain and over look the whole town. When I went they were having their anniversary of the Bosque and they had dancers and singers and my cousins made me go up there and sing. Then days later I find out I was in their magazine. In the last picture is a dessert called Picarones to me they taste like donuts with syrup and are so delishious! But watch out for the bees!


Towards the end of my trip I went to Santa Maria beach. In March in Peru it's like the end of summer and there weren't that many people at the beach but it was still beautiful. The  sea food is especially good there because they catch it fresh. 

Those are some facts about Peru and a couple a pictures from my spring break trip. I hope you liked them and go visit Peru one day.

Skinny Girls Struggles

Everyone has insecurities no matter whether its your body type or imperfections. People are always envious of the people who are naturally skinny, and they can't change that. Just because a person is skinny does not mean they don't have insecurities or struggles. So I thought I would name a few just so you can understand that being skinny is not all it's cracked up to be. 

1) People thinking you have an eating disorder, because they think you don't eat. It's sad how people could think we have an eating disorder just by the way they look at us. 

2) There are never clothes that fit you, and you either have to get it altered or shop in the kids section. As much as I love shopping it's a struggle to find clothes that fit me, especially pants.

3) People are amazed of how small your wrist is. Constantly comparing your wrist to theirs, or trying to see how many times their finger can go around it. 

4) Zero being categorized as a size. The number zero should not be a size that is basically saying that my size is nothing. Last time I checked my body is so much more than just the number zero.

5) Can't give blood because you don't reach the weight requirements. Everyone wants to save someones life by giving blood but it's hard when you can't reach the weight requirements which stops you from saving a life.

6) Being sick and the medicine they give you is to strong for you. When you get sick doctors will recommend you medicine but since you are so small the medicine makes you even sicker and does not help.

7) People joking about your weight, such as " you are going to be blown away" or "you look like a twig." It feels just the same way as someone were to say a fat joke to a fat person.

8) You can't gain weight as much as you try. We eat and eat and eat but can't gain any weight, and to some people that may sound like heaven. But to us we just want to gain just a little bit more weight because society keeps telling us we are too skinny.

9) People saying " you can't have insecurities you are too skinny." Everyone has insecurities and don't think that if she's skinny she doesn't have insecurities because we do.

10) Telling everyone that skinny isn't everything. Society has made people believe that skinny is sexy and perfect, when it's not. Confidence and personality is that makes you perfect in your own way. Everyone was born different and yes there is always one thing people want to change about themselves, but you should be happy with what you look like. We are all beautiful no matter the size. 

Those are some struggles skinny girls go through on a daily basis. So don't think that just because a person is skinny they are perfect. We are all beautiful (:

My Favorite Broadway Songs

I have always loved Broadway music ever since I was little and loved watching Broadway musicals. I think Broadway isn't appreciated as much as is should, so I thought I should share some my favorite Broadway songs. I hope you enjoy them.

  1. Heathers the Musical: Dead Girl Walking- The musical Heathers is one of my favorites it is very funny and not like any typical musicals. Dead Girl Walking is one of my favorites because the music is just unique and the voices are amazing. 

2. The Lion King: He Lives In You (Reprise)- I saw this musical on Broadway and when I heard this song I fell in love. The harmonies are beautiful and its really catchy, and The Lion King is a classic. Its a must see musical.

3. The Phantom Of The Opera: The Phantom Of the Opera- I love this song, the duet is perfect. The fact that she can sing the higher notes at the end is incredible. It tells a beautiful story as well. Singing this is like #singinggoals. This takes a lot of air to be able to hold out those notes and be able to sing high notes so beautifully. 

4. Wicked: Defying Gravity- If you know Broadway music you have to know this song. Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth are amazing together and the song is so empowering. This musical is the backstory to the Wizard of Oz and is astonishing.


5. Les Miserables: One Day More- This absolutely is one of my favorite musicals of all time. The music is amazing, the story plot is beautifully written by Victor Hugo, and the harmonies are just breath taking. I love this song because you get to see each character sing and express their feeling and that is why it is one of my favorites songs.

These are my favorite Broadway songs and I hope you enjoyed listening to them. (:

Thank You High School

Now that I have officially graduated high school and about to start my college experience a month from now. There are some things I would like to say before I leave my high school years behind me...

Dear High School,
Thank you...

Thank you for my best friends, the ones who have been there for me throughout this whole experience. The friends that were there from the beginning and ones that I had just meet my senior year. The friends that on my first day at a new school invited me to sit with them at lunch, who knew I would become best friends with them. The friends that knew what was best for me, and looked out for me. The friends that I made in high schools are the ones I will always remember. They saw me at my worst and at my best. They taught me that being myself is perfectly okay!

Thank you for my enemies without them I wouldn't know how strong I really am. The enemies that taught me that losing friends is okay. The enemies that would be bullies to my friends because it made my friends stronger and made our friendship stronger. The enemies that taught me that you don't always have to be friends with everyone.

Thank you for my teachers that pushed me to my breaking point because they knew I had potential to be someone. The teachers that marked my whole paper in red ink because there is always room for improvement. The teachers that motivated me everyday and gave me life lessons or as my teacher would call them "Motivational Mondays" because they truly cared about each and every one of us. The teachers that I had trouble learning from but that just taught me how to teach myself how to learn each lesson by myself. Most of all thank you for the teacher's love of teaching that helped us love what you were teaching.

Thank you for the lessons I learned without them I wouldn't be the person I am today. Throughout my high school experience you make good decisions and bad ones but in the end you learn from both. These lessons helped me grow as a person, and experience things I never thought I would.

Thank you for my best friends, my enemies, my teachers, the lessons I've learned, my motivation, my thirst to learn, thank you for all the things that made my high school experience worth remembering, and finally my memories that I had made throughout my 4 years of high school.

Love Always,

 A High School Alumni

New York Adventure

I recently just came back from visiting New York. I use to live there when I was in kindergarten, and after twelve years I returned. I did several things in New York: Broadway, Central Park, 9/11 Memorial, Times Square. I was only there for a couple days but I had an amazing time coming back.

Displaying IMG_4842.JPG

This was in Central Park this park is very large and you can spend a whole day in this beautiful place and not get bored. When I went it was on a Saturday and there were so many events and they were televising a contest. They were giving away food and drinks and so many things, so you will never be bored in Central Park.

This was also in Central Park it's called the  Bethesda Fountain and Terrace. This place is so pretty and there were many movies and shows filmed here: Gossip Girl, Sex in the City, Enchanted and so many more. 

Displaying IMG_0042.JPG

One of the days I was in New York City I had to see a Broadway musical, so I went to see the Lion King. The whole musical was amazing it was really a memorable experience. I grew up listing to Broadway music, but watching a real Broadway production was amazing. I definitely recommend watching any musical that's on Broadway.

Another place I visited was the 9/11 Memorial where the Twin Towers once stood. When living in New York I had several neighbors who were greatly effected by this tragedy. The memorial was very beautiful something worth going to. 

I had an amazing time in New York and would totally recommend going to such a beautiful city. (:
