About HyperactiveMiss





Hello!
Ask away! If you'd like to know me better, check out my websites by clicking here and viewing my collective. I always try to give detailed and helpful advice. Please feel free to ask me for advice and DO give me feedback! Reading good comments and knowing that I helped someone out literally puts a smile on my face.

Please be sure to look at the FAQ on my column. If you ask a question similar to one I've already answered, I will most likely reply with the same answer.


Grammar, Punctuation, etc
I think if Advicenators are going to take the time to answer other peoples' questions and give free and helpful advice, the least people could do is use correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc when they are asking for help. It's unbelievable how some people TyPe LiKe ThIs, or never use periods, or don't have the time to do a "seempl nd quik speel chek".
Pet Peeve
I think that's totally lame when someone rates you down just because they don't want to accept the truth. It's also annoying if they rate you down, just because they didn't like your answer. Advicenators isn't about hearing what you want to hear. It's about finding the truth. People should be thankful that someone gave their time and effort. They should be thankful their question was even answered at all.
Rating & Feedback
Let me just remind you what each number means when you rate someone. These are OFFICIAL.

1- Pretty Bad Advice 2- Not Harmful, But Not Useful Either 3- Decent Enough Advice 4- Good Advice 5- Really Awesome Advice

I think everyone should give feedback, not just a rating. And feedback should include WHY you gave that person that specific rating. If everyone did that, everyone would probably rate more accurately. Also, the advice giver took the time to answer the question. The least the question asker could do is to give feedback! But unfortunately I guess it's too hard and mind boggling for everyone to do.

    I know alot of people have asked this question..but what are some good haloween costumes? I don't want anything "hot or sexy or sluttish" nothing like that cuz I'm going with some 7th graders..something original..and I don't want to spend too much money..plus I don't have too much at home..any ideas? I have to go to a party TONIGHT! Thanks!

    A bit late to look for a halloween costume...I'm sure the stores are either completely packed or sold out by now. If you can find something from the stores, you're a lucky ducky. Otherwise you'll have to make do with what you have. Some ideas: You could try being a geek...throw on some dorky clothes and some glasses lol. My teacher came to school looking like she just woke up...lol her hair was in curls under a plastic cap, her face had green facial mask stuff, she wore a robe, slippers, etc. You could also try dressing up like a guy. Borrow some guy clothes or go out and buy some =P There are plenty of other ideas...trying searching it on google. "Homemade costumes" or something. Good luck!

    I woke up this morning with a pimple. I NEVER get them, and I just have to get one on Halloween weekend. I dont have time to go to the store, and toothpaste doesnt work..But I do have this Neutrigina orange crap that helps but I dont know if its gonna go away by tonnight or tomorrow night. Help!

    Pimples are so evil...especially when they come right before a special day. Toothpaste might work if you use the nongelly kind. You have some orange crap? lol. Maybe that'll work? lol. Most likely the pimple won't go away, I hate to say it. You'll have to ignore the pimple. Most people won't even notice it unless you actually point it out. Pimples look huge and noticable on your own face, but to other people it's not big deal. Self esteem and confidence is good =D Be sure to wash your face often! It helps prevent more pimples from coming.

    I havent had a boyfriend in about a year and a half. My friends and family are always telling me i need to get out there and meet someone. The trouble is i dont really know where it is im supposed to go to meet theses said "guys".
    Anyone have any suggestions on where to meet a nice guy?
    Thanks :)

    Gee...a year and a half isn't that much, lol. Enjoy being single while you can. In fact, my brother is 22 and he has never gone on a date. SAD, don't you think? But at least that fact will make you feel better, haha. If you really want to find a guy now though...they're everywhere so take your pick...and go after him! ;) lol. Clubs...that's a nice way to meet someone since you both have the same interests. There are plenty of other places to meet nice guys. They're everywhere (except for girls' ballet or something =P)!

    i like this one guy since last year but i dont get to ever see him anymore since were not in any of the same classes this year like last year. I still like him and think about him every night. We just have so much in common. I see him sometimes after school when walking my dog and then i walk with him for a while. He sits at the popular table at lunch. I think he liked or likes me! should i tell him? should i have a friend tell him? or wait for him to come around? help!

    That's happened to me a lot. My old crushes don't turn popular, lol, but after a year or two we have different classes and drift apart. The easiest thing to do is try to forget about him and maybe search around for a new crush. That's what I usually do. It'll pass. Crushes come and go.

    If you have some courage and think something might work out, you should definitely talk to him. Not a friend, YOU. Tell him you like him and maybe you guys can meet up after school or something. If you're too chicken to talk to him (lol =P) you could always give him a note. If you have his number you could always call him. Telling him through a friend or online is wussy and whatnot, lol. Best of luck!

    i am a freshmen ... and a senior is hitting on me ... it is now September ... but this has been going on for about a year. He is a Lifeguard at a pool i was at during the winter, and he IMed me and told me that he really likes me and that im pretty and stuff and he wants to go out with me. He seems nice but my parents will NEVER go for it .... but he still talks to me and stuff ... at times he can be gross ... but hes pretty nice ... i never see him tho .. he goes to a different high school..... im just SO CONFUSED !!!!

    He might want to use you maybe? Just a thought. If that's not the case, there are still other problems.

    I know "age shouldn't matter", and that is true, but it can be a big obstacle. You'll have to deal with friends and family and crap. After his senior year he'll probably be off to college. You'll still be in highschool for another three years. Do you think you can handle that? Think about the future. That would really suck to disobey your parents and lose their trust and then a while later break up with the guy because it just didn't work out. Think about the future and the consequences. Also, he goes to another highschool and you said you never see him. It kinda sucks, don't you agree? You wouldn't get much time with him and who knows...he might have some other girl back at his highschool.

    Whatever your choice is, I wish you luck.

    Help!
    I cant get the colour on the sidebar of my advice column to change.
    Any ideas?

    Go to Column Settings. If you want to change the color, enter a color or hex code here where it says "Sidebar background color:"

    If you want an image as your background, put the URL where it says "Sidebar background image (URL):"

    That should work. Perhaps you're typing the wrong URL. You need a full URL. "/img/bg/bg158.jpg" won't work. You need something like "http://domain.com/pics/background.jpg"

    What's an OOC? I keep seeing everywhere on journal site's and message boards that so and so belongs to an OOC and that it's fake, but what it is?

    Usually on fanfiction and role plays it means Out of Character.

    If you wanted to pretend to be your favorite character in a movie (role playing), you would want to act just like the real character. You know, do what they would do if you were them. That's In Character.

    If you're not acting exactly like they would, but you are still pretending to be the character, that would be out of character. Hopefully you got that...I'm bad at explaining sometimes, lol.

    However, I'm not sure what it means, the way you're using it. So and So can't belong to an OOC (Out of Character)...lol. Maybe YOU're interpreting how people use "OCC" wrong. If you're not, I'm stumped. lol.

    does anybody out there know any good role play sites? like for lotr or anything? thanx bunches

    I don't know any that are specifically based on lotr, but http://cluster.gaiaonline.com/index.php?referral=422844 is an AWESOME roleplaying community. It has a lot of Anime roleplaying, but there are plenty that aren't about Anime. Some are about other books and tv shows and movies and etc. If you're lucky you can find lotr, or even make your own post.

    If you want to join, do me a favor and join by clicking that link. Thank you very much!

    Ok, I need to change my cursor for my advice column but I can't find any cute, small ones. The website http://www.starlightmks.com has no good ones. I'm looking for maybe cute, small, and animated star cursors. Does any one know any good cursor websites? Thanks

    Perhaps http://www.soup-faerie.com has some you might like? If not, you could always do a google search for free cursors =)

    hey. im 5'5 n 1/2 or something like that and i weigh 104 pounds. i know that im skinny but i hate my thighs! i want to go on a diet but, i dont want to bcome anerexic or scare m fam n friends. what should i do?
    thanx

    I don't think you need a diet. A diet probably won't help your thighs...they might make you even skinnier somewhere else instead of your thighs! lol. Do some stretches, running, go to the gym, exercise tapes, anything leg related. That'll probably help your thighs =)

    Okay people! (I've Only Had One Boyfriend In My Whole Life) I have been single for 9 months now, I like this guy and he likes meeh back, but there is restrictions causing us not to date, and I somtimes think he is pushing me away, and I still wanna be his friend. So what do I do to get other guys to like me? _LoNelY OnE_ (Thickbabyie4u)

    Honestly all I can tell you is to be yourself. Just kick back and go with it naturally. Trying too hard can push away guys and make it harder on yourself. If you like someone, be sure to give them some signals...flirt with them a lot...be friendly. Hopefully he'll get the message and give you a response.

    hey this is gunna sound realli weird but im just going to ask...okay im from the middle east, and middle easterns are known for having alot of body hair..and i have that problem,i have really hairy arms and its sooo embaressing!! i have tried waxing and bleaching..it works, but its still noticeable!! my friends advice me that i should shave it but im too scared cause i know its just gunna grow back darker and even thicker...any advice?? srry its so gross and nasty i know but its worth a try...please dont say like ew thats gross or nething..i just need some help..thanks

    Nah, this question is not at all nasty. We all have our little hair problems. lol. Yes...my mom's a hairstylist and she did waxes sometimes. At the salon there were two middle eastern girls. What they did was wax. I know what you're thinking...OUCH! Waxing DOES hurt the first time...but after a while you get used to it. Shaving is one solution, but the hair, like you said, does come out even thicker. With waxing the hair usually does not come out thicker and if you do it regularly, less hair appears. With shaving you'd have to shave more frequently. If you don't want to try shaving or waxing maybe you can try something like Nair or some other product that gets rid of hair painlessly. I don't know if it's any good though...people who have used it say that it gets irritating to the skin. So...you might want to experient with different things. I hope I helped in some way...and good luck!

    hi. im 14 5'2 and 87 pounds and im tired of being so skinny! ppl r like "do u eat", and say crap like "eat a chesseburger or something gees" what should i do?
    tanki

    If you're tired of being so skinny...eat! lol. I know, I know. I hate eating myself. I love junkfood...but other than that I don't like eating. If you want to find out if you are underweight, I have two sites.

    http://www.free-weightloss.com/weight_chart.htm That's a weight chart. You can look up your height and weight and find whether you're at a good weight or if you're at any risks.

    Here's another one: http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/bmicalc.htm For this one you can enter your height in feet and inches and your weight. Press Compute BMI and it'll give you a number inside the heart. Take that number and look at the left where it says "BMI Categories". It'll put you in under, normal, overweight, or obesity. There are links on that site that you might want to check out concerning weight. Those charts are not always exactly correct so if you're ever unsure about anything the good ol' doctor will come in handy. Whether you're under, normal, or over weight, old fashioned exercising and eating healthy always helps you in life.

    If you're not at all worried about your weight, just ignore those people. A lot of skinny people get those comments all the time and I know it's very annoying. The best thing to do is to not let it get to you. Tell them you don't appreciate them making that comment and that you DO eat. After that just ignore them. =)
