Travelin' troubles

Hey GL, I have a bit of a dilemma. I just heard about this amazing two-week dance camp in the mountains of NY and I...

I am having the same problems with flying!! Me and my family are gonna move to Haiwaii in 2 years but, I never rode on a airplaine before and my imagaination gets the best of me! Like it will break down because I'm gonna use my laptop or something (That is really lame!) and the other thing is I don't want to leave Arizona!! This is my home and I can't live without it! I'm gonna miss everybody and my mom's best friend has a fear of flying so we won't see them in 2 years (We are gonna move to Haiwaii in 2 years and come back in 2 years)I can't live without my home! We are gonna move into TINYER houses! please help!! And one last thing - Any tips for flying?


Hey girl,

 Take deep breaths when you go flying. Just calm down and clear your head. As for moving, chin up! Yeah it's gonna be different but use it as a fresh start.

Hey girlie! I have the same problem. I might not be as brave as you, but i would not have gone, and went to a really cool dance day camp. I am sorry that you might not want to hear this, but i also say go for it if you are comfortable!

by Miranda999 on 7/24/2009 12:30:41 AM


You should def take it! I went to Europe for a month and we could only call home 3 times! Go, but take a comfort item, like your mom's pillow or your dad's socks. Sounds weird, but it helps a ton!

I think i must have been born on the wrong contenint, because i wish more than anything to live in europe. I like france, Italy, greece, and all the northern countries. Ive been learning french, and am planning to learn more languages. I really want to live there, but there doesnt seem to be anything i can do about it. How do you go to collage in a forion country, does it cost alot?


Hey babe,

There are a lot of great schools in England and France that you can apply to. Start looking early and find out what the requirements are. It CAN be really expensive (plane tickets there and back definitely are!) but sometimes you can get finacial aid or a scolarship, if your grades are really high. Good luck!

i'm going to camp this summer (though, it's a car drive away, and it's in the woods, and it's only a week)

by popmusic on 6/12/2009 5:20:19 PM


I think you should go. It really is the chance of a lifetime!! If you are going to miss your parents or get homesick then bring pictures of things that you love back at home. Like pictures of pets, your room, your family stuff taht makes you happy.

by balubala on 6/12/2009 1:01:14 PM


My mom wants me to do activities this summer I don't want to do. I don't want 2 hurt her feelings. What should I do?


Hey girl, you're gonna hurt your mom's feelings more if you do the activities she wants you to do but you don't enjoy it and hate it. You just have to tell her how you feel about them and find something that you'll enjoy and your mother approves of. <3 Jeannie

You will have a great time. I have been going to sleep away camp for like 6 years and I have been the new person twice. All you have to do is be yourself and you will make friends. As for the end of camp way to go! you get to dance with a European Pop Star!

3 words-
go for it!!!

by kgirlpanda on 6/9/2009 5:55:26 PM


Yeah, my friends and I... we aren't too into sleep away camps so we don't really have to worry about that stuff, but what I think stinks most abut your sit. is that your parents are letting you go ON THE FACT THAT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO CALL HOME CRYING ET CETERA. That really stinks. My parents would just encourage me to go and allow me to call home... not because was scared but because I just wanted to check in at home and say 'hey', you know???

by musicsquirt98 on 6/9/2009 4:31:30 PM


I LLLLLOOOOOOVVVVEEEEE dancing but I don't think my 'rents can pull off the cash to go to any expensive camp. I'm gonna' try out a local cheerleading camp tho...<33

by LJSOCCER12 on 6/9/2009 4:05:58 PM


i have a great idea that used to help me with homesickness. ask your mom to write you a short letter for each day of the week that you are gone. at night, open that days letter, and remember your parents wishes for you to stay calm. when you feel homesick, listen to music or even open up to new friends. maybe even BRING a fellow dancer to camp! im sure once the camp is in full swing youll be having so much fun that youll forget your homesickness.

~Always-ALWAYS-bring something, like an old blanket, sweater, or stuffed animal that smells like home.
~Make sure you have e-mail addresses and phone numbers of your friends and family from home.
~Don't be shy! It never hurt anybody to make a few new friends.

by hyperpuppy on 6/9/2009 3:40:16 AM seriously jelouse of u ive been danceing scince befor i could walk litteraly.and i never got a chance like that.i went to new york and if i ever get that chance again im going to cry of that enough reason to go for u?

by dancengirl on 6/9/2009 3:33:12 AM


I feel like I do not have a BFF. My two BFFs moved across the country, and although we stay in touch, it is not nearly the same as having one right in my hometown! I have some other friends, but none of them are my besties, I really want a new beat friend or two, but I go to a really small school that doesn't have many kids so I don't meet that many new people. Also, I am quite shy, so I have trouble talking to people I hardly know. How can I make some new best friends?

Hey babe, just be as outgoing as possible and talk to girls you maybe haven't seen or talked to in a while. Be confident and show who you are and people will notice!

This summer I get to go to a mizzou softball camp. The proplem is its 5 hours away and my bestfriend cant come anymore. Im so nervous cuz i wont know any one and ill have to share a dorm with some other girl and im a afraid she will be mean. I know it's awesome i get to go but i have never been that far away from my parents that long.Im also VERY shy so ill take any advice about how to be able to make friends or about how to stop being nervous about camp. Thanx

by ashhagan104 on 6/8/2009 11:16:00 PM


ya girl. don't freak. just focus on having fun. i mean, your so lucky your rents are letting you go 2 a 2 week camp and dance with a european singer!!!!!! just try and keep your mind totally distracted and focus on nothing but dancing and that european singer. trust me, if you get really home sick, bringing like a picture of your fam or brining anything that reminds you of home can freak you out. and dont call home!!!!! that will make you want 2 come back even more. like, i once went 2 this camp and they didnt allow cell fones (-_- but seriously, wat camp does? thats wats NOT fun about them) so i couldnt talk 2 my bf but i brought a picture of him and that just made me miss him a LOT more if i couldnt txt him. but luckily, i had some of my friends go 2 camp with me and made some new ones so they helped me stay preoccupied by like just talking about random things and having fun!! oh, and i would bring a book with you 2 read a nite because thats when your most prone 2 get homesick-ness. and try and dream happy dreams!!! lolz just live in the moment and i hope you have a blast!!!!

by OMGitsMILLI on 6/8/2009 11:12:59 PM


That's definitely an opportunity you don't want to miss!
Your fellow campers will most likely be just as homesick as you, so I'm sure they can relate. But once you think about how amazing it's going to be, you can quell your anxiety and replace it with excitement!
You'll do great, and once you get back home, your family will be so proud of you, it'll be worth it leaving for two weeks.
Have fun!!!

So today I went to the concelling at my school because I've been having really low self esteem. She told me to write down what people say if they give me any compliments on my looks or anything like me personality or whatever at all in the next few days and I have to write about how I feel when they say that (like if I think, "I'm not as pretty as they say, or something like that) I still don't feel good about myself though. I hate what I see when I look in the mirror, but I want to see the beauty in me, but I just don't believe it. Plus no ones given me any compliments at all for me to write down. I just feel bad about myself. What should I do MOD????

Hey babe, I would focus on things you like about yourself on the inside. Once you're happy with yourself on the inside then you'll start to see your physical beauty as well. Try writing down a list of all the great things about your personality like, "I'm a great friend, I'm great at soccer, etc..." Keep talking to your counselor too, you'll feel better.

sorry for all the questions!! but i was wondering, im going into the eleventh grade, do you think im too old to be reading gl?! i like it and i can relate to it a LOT better than seventeen....

I think that's totally fine. If you like it (and who wouldn't right?!) why should you stop reading? We have a lot of older girls who read!

by u+me=love on 6/8/2009 9:52:19 PM


one more question- when i click on my profile to make sure its set to private, it always says "username does not exist" ever since i have had an account. i asked another mod what to do and she told me to look on the profile faq page, or something like that- which i did, but it said nothing about my problem. is there anything you can do to fix/change it? thank you!!

Hey babe, I'm not sure why it's like that. Send an email to us under the "contact us" page on the homepage and ask there. It should be forwarded to the appropriate person.

by u+me=love on 6/8/2009 9:30:51 PM


MOD MOD MOD!!!! I have a problem with discharge. I have tons of it and after, and during skool, it feelz like i wet my pants. Im sick of it!! What can i do? Iv heard of usiin pantiliners. I dont no how to tell my mom about them. Also, is there anyway to get rid of , or have less discharge??? or anything else u can use bsides pantiliners????? THanx, Magnusgirl <3

Hey babe, def go with the pantyliners. Just ask your mom to pick you up some next time she's at the store. She should get the message!

by magnusgirl on 6/8/2009 9:25:44 PM


so i was wondering- i have really pale skin, and im not about to damage it with the sun or anything, so im thinking about using something that wont damage my skin. what do you think would last longer and look more natural- a spray on tan, sun tan lotion, or something else? thanks...!

I'd go with the spray on because it's professional quality and the people who work at a salon can help ya figure it all out. Sometimes the lotions can get streaky.

by NeedAdvice? on 6/8/2009 8:05:30 PM


I know how u feel every year i go to a sleep away camp for a week and I really miss my home! The best way to get over ur homesick is to next time u go away w/out ur rents try and hang out with the people around u it might help take the pain away!! It worked for me!!

by giggleshayes814 on 6/8/2009 7:36:18 PM


That's OK, everyone gets homesick! I remember my class went to a week-long science camp for a field trip. I was really afraid of being homesick too! I did get a little homesick sometimes, but camp was definitely a BLAST and I loved it!
If you start to get homesick, try calling your parents, siblings or friends and just talking for a while. Try decorating your surroundings (like your room, dorm or bunk) with pictures, posters, and happy things. Also, try making friends with some girls in your camp. Just having friends there will make you feel so much better.
Focus on how amazing this opportunity is, and try having the most fun you can! Soon, you'll be home, sharing all your fabulous new stories with your family, and maybe even being campsick!
I know you can do it girlie! Smile

by ShopperSoccerGurl on 6/8/2009 7:13:05 PM


I had this exact same problem so this is what I did:
-ask your parents to make several"homesick notes"each these are little notes that they wrote that you can read when you are homesick
-when ever you get homesick remember this: you are blowing things out of proportion: you will see them in 2 weeks and you will see them for the rest of your life, but you only get to go to this camp once.

Also, my profile is being checked, but once it is public you can comment on my profile anytime at camp if you just want to talk to someone! Please tell me how camp goes! Good Luck- You go girl!

by blue-eyed-beauty on 6/8/2009 7:54:57 AM


MOD MOD MOD MOD Ok so I had a gymnastics competition a couple days ago. It was my first competition. It was kinda fun. I came in last place. I know I could have done better. I have done better before in pratcice. I didn't do my best. Now I have to wait until next year do to better. My parents who don't know gymnastics say that I did great and their so proud of me. That only makes it worse. The girls I was competing against were older and more expierenced. But I'm not mad because I lost I'm mad because I didn't try. I can't stop thinking about it. Please help me.


Sometimes although we know we are capable of something we can get stage fright and not live up to our potential.  That is nothing to be upset about.  You were obviously super nervous (which you should be considering you are clearly just as good to be competing against older and more experienced girls)!  The most important thing to realize is that you have the support of your family and friends no matter what and that they know what a special gymnastic competitor you are!  To prepare for next time, try performing in front of friends and others to get rid of that stage fright and be the best you can be!  Good luck flexible friend!
