"I personally think that it is worthless to die for getting a tan. I do understand that some girls are pressured to get a tan to fit into the society, and to fit the idea beauty. But, it shouldn't be to a point when you have to risk your health.…"

Change

It comes to a point in every person's life to have doubts about the path this person chose to follow. Sometimes we follow our gut and go for it, some rather ignore it and keep on the same path due to the painful and scary thought of making the wrong decision or disappoint others. We have heard that life is all about taking risks, if we are not curious to try new things we will never know who we truly are. These feelings mostly happens when we are in college, which makes it a little more painful…See More

Plastic Surgery

It might be hard to believe, but I am the kind of girl that wouldn't do any type of plastic surgery on my body unless, my  health requires to. I simply do not understand the concept of changing your entire face to get more attention to people. I do understand that it is hard to love your body, because I've been in that situation. I used to be often teased about being chubby when I was younger, or even when I had a lot of pimples, but somehow, I learned that plastic surgery is not the right…See More

Friends

There is a saying that says, " You can count your friends with one hand," this saying is certainly true. Although, many people have the ability of making new friends every day, some of those friends are not very reliable. To be able to recognize a true friend by not only how close you are, but how reliable she or he can be. Real friends will always help you with everything you need, and you automatically know if they will be there when you need them the most. A true friend will be completely…See More

True Gentlemen

I have been thinking lately about how the manners of young boys have changed over the past years. Men used to stand up when a woman will get up, take their hats off to greet any person, even most of them would not dare to insult a woman. Now days men still open the door for you, but it is very rare to a men to open the door of a car for you; when are you going to enter and when you are going to get out of the car; some of them even move the chair in a way for you to properly sit. How these…See More

"I think that people used women's liberation as an excuse to get rid of chivalry. Then, my big brain says that chivalry did not exist for everyone all the time anyway. Women used to be traded or sold like cattle before. People marry for…"

Tattoos

Since I moved to the U.S, I realized that today's parents doesn't seem to care if their kid wants a tattoo or not. At first I thought it had something to do with the U.S culture. Now days, people want to get a tattoo because it simply looks cool, when back at my original country, if you had a tattoo, it meant that you are some kind of criminal. Not only getting a tattoo can be a cultural thing, but it is also trending in our generation. Just recently, we have seen many people, among them…See More

I am changing my style to make my boyfriend happy...

I just heard that Kanye West is planning to design Kim's weeding dress, and to be honest I do not know if it is something sweet about him, or if it something way to creepy. As many of you know, Kim also let Kanye to change her entire wardrobe. In my opinion, I wouldn't let my boyfriend to change my style,that is why I have my friends, sisters, and my mom to tell me that my taste in style is awfully wrong, and I need to change my entire wardrobe. ( Luckily, no one has told me that my style is…See More

I love my costume, but why my skirt has to be too short?

Halloween is around the corner, and it happens to be one of my favorite holidays that the reason why is because I like to wear costumes. It is the time of the year where you watch all kind of scary movies, and go trick or treating, because is never old enough to get candy. For this holiday, girls I know how our costumes look like, but honestly, why are most of our costumes have to be just below our butt? For me is kind of uncomfortable to be walking around and showing more than I am supposed…See More
