Hey! In response to your question:
Ever heard the expression? There's other fish in the sea? How about there's other pandas in the forest???
Usually when a girl is hung up on a guy, it's painful to hear when someone else is almost guaranteed to be able to go out with him. Does it hurt? Duh, but the thing is, don't get so bummed out and distract yourself by getting involved in activities or do more stuff. Trust me, the more you get out there, the most likely you'll find someone out there who's perfect for you! Plus, love tends to fade away. Yours will too eventually although right now it's still there.
Hope this helps and good luck!

Answer to ur question!!~~~
Tips on focusing:
1. Go in your own little bubble, to do that go in your room shut the door make it so there is no sound whats so ever!
2.Pay active attention. As you work and think, try to keep your attention on the task at hand. Be strict with yourself and each time your mind wanders, return it to the task.
3.Find a comfortable position and don’t allow yourself to move. Concentrate on what you are doing or watching, drawing your attention away from distractions, and focus your thoughts on your task. After a while, you will notice that you fidget less and feel less physical discomfort.
Focusing at school!!!~
1) Go to bed early and get a solid 8-10 hours of rest each night. This way, there's no chance that you'll fall asleep in class, (no matter how boring!)
2) Do your homework and keep up with class. This way, you'll likely be more interested and more engaged while you're in class.

lol yeah. OMG I was on iTunes looking at the Hope for Haiti Now album (like, the live performances from the telethon event) and I was wondering if anyone was haertless enough to rate it one star. OMG curse human curiosity. There was one person who couldn't have cared less!!!! And they even put a joke and was like lolololololol!!! That person needs to do some soul searching.
(PS, If this posts two times, it's because I wasn't sure if it would post or not.)

Yep it would be amazing to get to a point where there aren't third world countries and stuff. But the goverment has other ideas...
lasagna on 1/22/2010 3:58:34 PM
Well it was weighing in my mind and I like speaking out, but not in person so on here was the perfect way to do it. That's so cool you donate all the time!! What are some good organizations I can donate to??
Yeah, I hope the world realizes that this isn't a one time thing. It's been happening and it will continue to happen. We can't stop nature, but we can at least help Haiti by building stronger buildings and like, saftey houses. It would be amazing to see all the courties that are helping now step up and do that!
Yes, I've noticed that too.

That's great that you support vegetarianism. My family didn't support me at first either. You have a great idea! You can limit your meat intake because most Americans eat DOUBLE the meat they are supposed to eat according to the food pyramid. So,eating half of the meat you usually eat, that will save 50 animals each year! If you go slowly, maybe you can turn into a vegetarian. Yes, tofu is delecious

Alexander Ludwig is soo cute.
Okay so to your question about staying in tune with your personality..
It all can always depend. But what i like to do when i just dont feel like myself is i love music. So i go to my room, play the music really loud and just let loose. I dance. I sing. Thats when i truly feel like myself. When i dont have to live up to others standards and it doesnt matter if im a dork.. So try finding something you like to do. Something where it doenst matter. As long as you're happy.
Always doing something by yourself can really get you an introspect of yourself. You see who you are without others around. You know?
-Sometimes just going on a walk. You can talk to yourself (i suggest not out loud because others may think you're weird. haha) but you can tell yourself anything. I daydream alot too.
Now staying on track to your "ifs"
~if you want to see if you'd be more tomboyish without all the cute clothes, give it a try for a week. You can always go back.
~Most people do tend to step out of there shell with their friends. Some because thats how they roll, others because they feel they have to impress them. If you feel you have to impress them, dont think that. They accept you as a friend and they already like you for who you are.
~Now i dont think you want to bring your grades down. but in my opinion, its not only your parents strictness who make you get the good grades. Its you as well. I mean who's doing the work anyway.
Well i hope i was able to help. (sorry its a little long) haha (:

laffygal00 on 9/6/2009 8:32:40 PM
Hey girl! Those sound more like zits rather then pimples. There are tonsa products out there to help it. You just have to go to a drugstore and find the right one. Yah those are blackheads. You could use blackhead cleansing pads that you couodfind at a local drugstore. Remember, some of the products might not work. So if it doesn't, then you should see a dermatologist. If you don't want to, then check out SkinID.com and go from there. Remember to wash your face every morning and before you go to bed so that you would get rid all the dirt on your face that causes bacteria. Dead skin cells could also be the cause of the zits so try using an exfoliator cream. Hope this helps!

CiCi840 on 8/28/2009 10:05:44 AM
Hey girl! I saw your question on the Club 22 page. I'm an advice giver, so I'll answer your question. First of all, I know it's really hard, but try not to beat yourself up too much. It's totally normal to have unkind thoughts or feelings; everyone does at some point or another. You can't control how you feel, though. And it's whether or not you act on those feelings that really counts. I totally know where you're coming from because I'm pretty short-tempered, as well. It's not a good thing, and although it can be tough, you have to learn to control your anger. Even if you feel like snapping at your brother, try your best not to. Walk away if you have to. Maybe you could talk to a friend about how you feel. As you already know, it's probably best not to talk about it to your parents because they're also the parents of your brother. I believe that in these situations it's best to get an outsider's point of view. The next time your brother does or says something that annoys you, try to keep your cool. Think about all the things about your brother that you like, or at least used to like. Maybe you'll be reminded of how much you adore him. And if not? My guess is this will probably pass, but until it does, or if it doesn't at all, you need to discipline yourself. Every time you say something rude to your brother, apologize. Then think about why you did what you did. Put yourself in your brother's shoes and think about what it must have felt like to have you snap at him. Tempers can be hard to control, but I think with practice, you'll learn to hold your tongue. Good luck! And if you need any advice about anything, you can always feel free to ask it on the Club 22 page or my personal profile.
supersingershannon on 8/25/2009 10:29:09 PM
It seems like you are going through a pretty tough time right now! Next time your brother comes around just breath in and breathe out and forget about being angry. Think of happy things when your around him! Now lay down on your bed with all the lights off and think.......what did he really do to you? Once you figure it out, forgive him! If you come up with nothing, just forget about being angry ad not think or talk about it anymore and you might forget about it. Sometimes once you figure out what is stressig you out it makes you feel much better!
If these don't work, consider going to your school councelor or even maybe a doctor. You can't live your life being angry with him all the time! Good Luck!

Purpleboo on 8/16/2009 3:42:11 PM
Hey girl! I saw your Q about diving. I think it's easier to keep your body straight if you put your hands over your head in sort of a triangle. Keep your arms really tight to the side of your head, and make sure you push off as hard as you can. Also, don't dive straight down; that's not what you want to do in races. You want to try to get as far out as you can. Once you get in the water, do sort of a dolphin kick to get to the surface. It gets you to the surface quickly and propels you further. Hope I helped you, and good luck!
supersingershannon on 8/1/2009 9:36:39 AM
hey i read your comment about diving. i would just make sure that you get your head in first and once you have your head in kick your legs up over your head. it sounds confusing but i think it is easier to help you if i could show you. so grab your friends and head down to the pool and practice there it might make it easier!,
summerlover0116 on 7/31/2009 3:19:00 PM
wow! when a girl has too much freedom. i could write a book about that...,
anyway, just sit with your 'rents and tell em' something like, I love that y'all give me all this freedom, but I really want y'alls opinion, 'cause i don't wanna do somethin that ya don't want me to.
britni on 7/25/2009 9:48:36 PM
hey girlie, my idea, is sit with them and say, i love having all this freedom you guys give me, but sometimes i want a little guidance too make sure i'm not doing anything bad. tell them that you know they care about you, but you just want a little bit more guidance. but, maybe they're right, maybe you are responsible enough to watch r rated movies, and have bfs. i'm sure if u ever did something really bad they'd step in. i hope i sort of gave good advice. thanks! :]
bluegreeneyegurl<333 on 7/25/2009 11:52:02 AM
Hey, girlie! I'm an advice giver for CLub 22 and I saw your question. I'm going to tell you what I think you should do.
First of all, I'm really sorry that you're unhappy with the way your parents treat you. Although it might be hard, I think you need to talk to your parents and tell them how you feel. Don't make accusatory statements when you're talking to them; instead, use the "I feel..." approach. I would suggest starting off like this: "I feel that I'm given too much freedom for my age." Then, just take it from there, explaining to them why you feel that way, and give them concrete examples of how you don't have enough limits. Finish by telling them that you feel you always have to set limits for yourself, and that's really their job as your parents. Ask them if they can start off thinking about the things that they let you do that maybe they shouldn't. Ask them if they can just start off setting some limits, like saying you can't watch R-rated movies unless your parents view them first and approve. And tell them that you just want some structure, but you're not asking them to be overly strict. If they don't listen to you and continue to let you do what you want, it's apparent that they're not going to change. And even though you shouldn't have to, you're going to have to set some rules for yourself. Don't watch any R-rated movies, don't date guys that your gut tells you aren't good for you, study and keep your grades up. Even though you're only a kid and you don't have to do this, it will have its benefits in the long run. It will help you discipline yourself for when you have to make really tough decisions when your parents can't be there all the time to help you. Self-discipline is definitely a good thing, and if there's anything you will gain from this experience, it's that.
supersingershannon on 7/25/2009 11:07:25 AM
Hey, I am an advice giver for club22 and I saw your Q. Here is my opinion!
I totally get it! Without any boundries who knows what can happen to you. I would just sit down with your 'rents and explain to them that you just don't feel comfortable with them not getting involved. When you start dating you are going to want their opinion on the boy, how you look at him isn't always enough. Tell them how most parents are like hawks with their kids and you don't want them to be like that but you want them a bit more involved with your life. Good Luck!
BalletDancer297 on 7/25/2009 8:34:34 AM
Hey girlie! Yup you are now a member of Club 22! And nice definition for "blankles" i <3 reading what everyone comes up with! And for your Q...
I think your parents need to tighten up on the rules. I would talk to them about it, but you might not feel comfortable with that. I think maybe your best shot is to use your own rules. Every time you do something, think to yourself "If my parents were stricter, would they let me do this? Would they be mad at me? Is this appropriate? Is this guy good enough for me?" Just keep asking yourself little Qs occasionally, and that should lead you in the right direction. Don't leave it up to your parents, *you* should be the one to make the correct desicions for your life.
Hope I helped!

oh your welcome! its no problem. omgosh it is like pouring rain outside right now. it is like raining so hard i can barely see.
summerlover0116 on 7/21/2009 8:41:18 PM
Hey! I am an advice giver on club 22, i saw your question so here is my opinion/answer!
I totally understand! Always make sure YOU feel confortable with what you where so if you don't like tight T's it's totally fine! With your description I would say baby-doll tanks would look GREAT on you! They are fitted on top but loose on the bottom so no one can see your tummy. They also make dresses like that too, fitted on top then flowy and loose at the bottom. Try shirts that have patterns and stones and ruffles at the top. Now, to the more girly thing! Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and even headbands will help make you girly! Try earrings at the like hearts and flowers which are even girlier. Good Luck!
BalletDancer297 on 7/21/2009 4:52:04 PM
hey girlie! i am not an official advice giver for club22 but i think i can help you. i would try babydoll tops. they are only fitted on the top part and then they flow out on the bottom. also try dresses. make sure they are not fitted but a cotton sundress from places like aeropostale and forever 21 are a great option! hope this helps!
summerlover0116 on 7/20/2009 6:52:01 PM
You should join Club Leo. Its a club just for leo's. Check it out on the Club Leo profile page.
mnm22 on 7/20/2009 11:56:32 AM
Oh I forgot one thing. You said you want to look more girly. Try long necklaces! They're definitely girly and draw the attention upward, as you want. You can get really cute necklaces pretty inexpensively at Claire's. Hope I was able to help you in some way!
supersingershannon on 7/20/2009 11:26:19 AM
Hey girlie! I'm an advice giver for Club 22, so I'm going to try to help you out. First, you should wear whatever makes you feel good. So if tight tees make you feel self-concious, just avoid 'em! I have a few suggestions on what you can wear to hide your broad shoulders and rib cage and help make you look bigger on top. An empire-waisted top helps create an illusion of curves, and a bonus is that a lot of empire tops are flowy on the bottom, which would hide your rib cage as well. Also, try shirts with ruffles near the top, as they draw the eye upward away from your ribcage and make you look less flat. Any shirts with a lot of accents up top would have the same effects, as would patterns. And also, try to pick shirts that are flowy, as they will help hide your ribcage. But, like I said, above all, wear what makes you feel confident!
supersingershannon on 7/20/2009 11:24:25 AM
To makke ya girls up there look big, try ruffles and all sorts of patterns up around there to make it look like something is going on. You could try to wear baby doll tops too, they are girlish, and cute, but they dont hug the ribs and the waist. You could also go for the sporty girl look too, wear some sporty clothes, and snazz it up with acceseries.
anyway I'm not as good with fashion as most of these girls are, but I hope that I could help!
britni on 7/20/2009 11:11:38 AM
These are ALL flirting actions! If he does a few, or all of these things, he totally likes you!
He'll look at you, until you turn around, then boom, he's looking the other way.
You may 'feel' like he's watching you - but he's hard to catch at it
He may do something physical - like grab you in a play way, poke you, play with your hair...
(Remember when you were really young and the guy you liked punched you or tackled you?)
He may be working really hard to pay attention to you, but doesn't quite know how...
He may ask a friend of yours about you - he'll say it's just for "friend of mine" that wants to know about you.
He talks to everybody else - but when you're around he turns silent, or chokes up.
You seem to accidentally bump into him a lot of different places.
He may not say a word to you, but he shows up in the same line, at the same movie, etc.
He'll give you a little smile from across the room, but if you get near, he won't look up.
Basically - the BIG clue is that his behavior changes when you're around (compared to when he's around his buds or other girls).
DEAD Giveaway - when you talk to him he turns red.
