I started raw a couple weeks ago
love it and it is a Long term goal
but I think I'm too skinny and I wanna bulk up.
But I don't have any weights.
I can do the push ups and pull ups.
Will it be enough?

Glad you're getting such a wonderful start in life and health, but you need to realize that this is a transitory time in your life. You're gaining lots of height and going through lots of changes. Exercising is fantastic and essential to good health, but you shouldn't be bulking up just for the sake of it. As a nineteen year old girl (and I swear it still feels like I'm sixteen), I can tell you that girls really don't care about muscles. Seriously.
Personally, I actually find lots of muscle disgusting, but I know that's not universally applicable.
At any rate, push ups, pull ups, and chin ups should achieve what you're aiming for, but don't over-do it. :)

I see what you mean
I'm not this ignorant guy that only worries about my looks
I'm not looking to get huge.
I'm just really skinny.
I just wanna get a little muscle.
Trying to be as healthy as can be.
Thanks for the input though.
You seem like a really sweet girl

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply or assume that you were just being vain, I just remember that being a particularly difficult age/period in time.
Thanks for the compliment. ^-^
Also, I'd imagine you already know this, but if you want to build bulk you should be exercising every day, before your muscles have time to heal themselves. Exercising every other day will build strength (and leaner muscles), exercising every other day builds mass. Good luck.
