Hi! Sorry this is really off topic......
I really want to earn some money. I have a certain thing I really want, and its a bit over $100. I cant have a lemonade stand or anything like that because someone else has a stand where I always do my stands. I also can't help at their stand. Plz help!!!
Maybe you could
babysit or do odd jobs around your neighborhood. Are you good at cleaning or
cooking? I’m sure people near you would love a hand! Talk to your parents about
what services you can offer and how you can get the word out, whether it’s
through mailbox notes or a community bulletin board. You can also ask your
parents if you can do extra chores to earn money from them!

I'm going to be a freshmen next year and I'm really excited to meet new people! I was wondering if you had any tips for meeting guys. Also there is a group of girls that I dislike and I really hope they won't be in any of my classes. They always like starting fights and creating drama and I was hoping you had tips for avoiding them
Hey chicha! It stinks that you're not a fan of a whole group of girls, and you probably can't avoid them completely. Instead of focusing on keeping your distance, stay concentrated on your own group of friends. Stay away from their drama as much as you can. As for guys, check out our awesome ice breakers page for tons of tips on how to start up a convo! http://www.girlslife.com/category/ice-breakers.aspx
Good luck! xo

I'm curious to know what are guys thoughts on girls who work out and have abs and such. Do they find that attractive or something?
Hey candygirl16, it depends. Some guys go gaga over abs, others don't like them. It's more important to figure out what you find attractive. Do you like washboard abs? Do you like working out? Once you decide what you like, and are confident, the right guy will come along. Hope this helps! Xoxo

To whoever is modding and may want to read:
I've been Homeschooled my entire life. I only have one non-related friend, and all summer she's been doing stuff with her friends from, none other than, school. And that makes me utterly depressed. I don't want to sit around all summer on my bed playing Xbox, I want to get out there, make friends, have fun and hang out all summer, but, I'm 14, I've never been taught how to socialize, because I've been cooped up in a house classroom all my life, plus, sitting around in a house all day every day hasn't made me the most "fit" 14 year old in the world, which really puts a giant crack in my self esteem mirror, and makes me feel like nobody would want to be my friend. Any Advice?
The best advice is what you already know you gotto do: just get out there! With so much free time in the summer, it's the perfect chance to go on neighborhood runs and swim to stay in shape. See if anyone else in your neighborhood wants to start a running club with you so that you can all stay in shape and encourage one another. If you hit the pool, there are plenty of kids to socialize with. Bring some magazines, nail polishes and lemonade and lounge by the pool with the other girls when you're not swimming. They'll love that you planned ahead and brought some things to do while you soak up the sun. Short summer camps area also great opportunities to meet other kids. Try a week-long tennis camp or soccer camp in order to burn off some energy and make new friends while learning a sport. And next time you call up your bestie and she seems busy, invite her other friends over too so that you can meet them as well. Branching out is a lot easier than we often make it seem. Best of luck!
