I'VE BEEN VERY BUSY WITH SCHOOL SO MY APOLOGIES IF I DON'T GET TO YOUR QUESTIONS RIGHT AWAY!

ok this guy thats not really my bf but kind of is lol found out that this weekend is my bday. and usually i wouldnt care but i know he likes me and so he says hes going to get me something. i usually dont tell guys about my bday cause then theres the whole akward thankyou thing and were not even going out so like what do i say?
i know he'll get me something cause hes just like that but i have such horrible people skills and i like getting presents but uuhhgg. anyone know where im voming from? help kthanks!

Wow, you must like this guy a lot if your getting so worried about it. lol. All you have to say is thankyou. Maybe throw in a "thank you sooooo much". Nothing major, he'll know you appreciate it no matter what.Hope I helped! Happy Summer!

Ok ive read things and it say that the 7th book is the last one. Is that really true I mean like wat are the odds that she'll make more? I know this sounds a bit selfish but I just can't believe that it's the last book.
Give your opinion.
Katiee

Oh dont your not being selfish one bit, i dont want it to be the last either. I cant/dont believe these roomers myself. If you think about it, in the 6th book it clearly stated that Harry was not returning to Hogwarts for the final year,so maybe because of that there might be more, sinc ehe wont be there for the 7th year of hogwarts.Did you know, you can pre order the 7th book so that you get it on the day it comes out? Sweet right! I should be receiving mine at 9 am. Am i Excited? OH YEAH! Hope I helped! Happy Summer, and reading :)

hi well recently i was at he beach and i only put a little suntan lotion on and my WHOLE stomach is burnttt.....

my dad got me a higher spf so now im good and i know to reaply it

but will sunblock prevent you from getting tan

and its been a day since i got sunburn ..will the pain go away within the next few days

=]PLEASE TRY AND HELP
=]thanks
=]

Sunblock usually provents you from getting tan, hence the block part :) but sometimes it might, sometimes it doesnt. I suggest putting some lotion on your stomach, or aloe to make your stomach feel better, but dont put it on and then go out in the sun, make sure your not going out right then. Hope I helped! Happy Summer!

my best friends birthday is in a few days. i dont know what to get her because i want it to be someone really special. does anyone have any ideas of something i could get or make her? thanks so much!

I suggest a best friends necklace, not one of the tacky ones with the half heart, something nice, maybe sterling silver, or a charm bracelet with charms of things that she loves, something she can keep for forever.Hope I helped! Happy Summer!

ok so my cat keeps getting ahirballs and she vomits. so it ry to brush her hair but she wont stay she is still a kitten what can i do so she will stay and doesnt move so i can brush her.

Hmm, usually kittens are obediant when you hold the scruff behind their neck, because, thats what the mother cats do to pick them up and stuff. So just hold her gently there, the back of her neck, it doesnt hurt them. Hope I helped!Happy Summer!

So I really love reading. :). My favorite books are New Moon and Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, and I was wondering if there were any other books like that that I'd be able to read.
I'd preffer the books to be about vampires, but I also love love stories, lol. Actually, I'll read anything if there's a love story part of it; I thnk that's what I like so much about Twilight and New Moon.

I've already read Kissing Coffins, Vampire Kisses, and Vampirates, lol.

I'll read in any age group, as long as it's not like, really girly girl young adult kinda stuff.

Thanks!

CAN I JUST SAY, THAT THOSE TWO BOOKS ARE THE GREATEST BOOKS EVER! OH MAN! I really love reading too, and have a giant list of books that you can check out. You must check out some books by Sarah Dessen, she writes a lot of teen books, and, they are simply amazing.

Some books by her,
This Lullaby
Just Listen
Dreamland
Someone Like You

others...

Hurt Go Happy - Ginny Rorby
Blood and Chocolate - not sure of the author, but you'd love it.
A brief chapter in my impossible life - Dana Reinhardt
Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson
Fever - Laurie Halse Anderson


if you need any more let me know!
And, if you want to IM me to discuss books...then you can!

oh, i am at such a loss. i have been dating my boyfriend for 5 months now and he is turning 17 at the beginning of july. my birthday was june 5th, and he did the cutest thing for me ever. and i have no idea of what to do for him, or get him. i am only 15, so i don't have major cash flow. he is into hockey a lot, but i don't know much about it so i couldnt really get him anything for it. he is a popular kid, and i just don't knwo what to do to compete with his. so if anyone has any ideas, or has done something. or anything. i just wanna make my boyfriend happy and enjoy his birthday! helppppp!

Make him dinner for his birthday, and write a list of all the stuff you love about him. Bye him a teddy bear too! For some reason, guys think teddy bears are awesome. You could also buy him a CD of his fav. band. Dont go into this thinking about what he did for you, and having to do something awesome back, just do something cool for him, and he'll appreciate it no matter what!Hope I helped, Happy Summer!

Today, I was watching Peter Pan and a few Veggie Tales movies when my friends called and asked what I was doing. They laughed when I told them I what I watching. They said Disney and Veggie Tales are for little kids. I can't help it. I like those movies. They're funny and cool, but i need advice on what should I do. Should I stop watching them? Or stick with the movies?

No one is too old to watch disney movies! Disney movies should be watched at least once every 3 days!!! They make people feel happy and young again. Tell your friends they can shove it up there butts if they have a problem with it. Watch whatever the hell you want!Hope i helped!

Happy SUmmer

i have had anxiety since i was 5 so like 9 years and i didn't like doing certin stuff like sleepovers.birthday parties. busses. being away from my mom basicly. well now i'm over all of that except sleepovers. 2 yars ago i went to my 1st sleepover and it was great but when i went to sleep over my best friends house i didn't feel good at all and i'm on lexapro! i slept over a few other peoples houses and i was fine but everytime i slept over my best friends house i didn't feel good! and i'm really upset because she is my best friend and i make excuses on why i can't sleep over! but now that summer is coming i spend every day over her house and i'm sure i will be asked a few times to sleep over

I had the same problem when I was younger. I wasnt able to sleep over at peoples house until i was like 12, I think it was because I didnt like being away from my mom. This is what you should try. Stay up wicked late with your friend, so that your so tired you'll just want to sleep. Thats what I did, my friend and i talked till like 2 in the morning, and i just, was able to sleep over, and later I figured out, its easier for me to sleep in a comfy area rather then like, the floor, or sleeping bag. Your anxiety could kick in sometimes, even though shes your best friend, it still happens. Hope I Helped! Happy Summer!

hey i am guy. i like this girl and so does my best friend. Ill give you the full story . me and my friend are good friends with her. hes slightly more with her and he really likes her... he wanted to make out with her but he didnt in a spin-the-bottle game....anyway, i made out with someone then. hes really protective of her, but hes shy around her. ill give u an example.. one of his other friends, a guy, was coming to stay at his house from a different town, hes like a real jock and had been talking to her on msn too. my friend told him not to make out with her. also recently hes been saying every girl i ever was close to was really hot and we should get back 2gether again. i think hes trying to put me off this girl? anyway we r both single, wel im kind of, so i think he doesnt want me to make out with her. i kind of do though thats the problem. hes a real good friend though.

So, all you want to do with her is make out with her, or you actually want to date her? If you just want to make out with her, maybe you should let her go, and let your friend, who seems to really like her have her. Have you heard of the saying "Bros before hoes" think about that, would you rather loose your really good friend, or go out with a chick that is probably just a hookup and loose him? He could be trying to swerve you offcourse of this girl, but hey, who wouldnt if he thinks you like her.You should deffinitly talk to your pal about this, see what is feelings are. Hope I helped! Happy Summer!

Well a month or so ago, me and my friend opened some kind of tumes in this small like 8 people cemetary down my road. We didnt see anything
I have no idea why we opened it, just for fun.
Well my mom, aunt, and my friends mom got us for like 2 hours. My aunt called from her house, and pretended she was the mother ( who died and is in the cemetary) and pretended her husband (a captain) and her were coming to kill us. We were so scared, her voice was perfect. My mom knew it was her and went along with it , same with my friends mom.
My friend and i got so scared, she came over and we heard the calls together. It was so scary, when we found out we were cracking up and everything
But in a few weeks ( June 23) Im going to a graduation party( at my aunts house for her daughter) and Its the aunt who waas in on the joke. Im bringing that same friend.
What is some good ideas to prank her back and maybe my mom too.


OOOO pranks, I loveee pranks. OK, you've got to cut up little pieces of paper and put them in the air things of the car, like were air and heat comes out {not too knowledgeable with cars} and when they turn on the car, the papers will come flying out alllll over them! Also, call up your Aunt and tell her she has an apointment at the Gynocologist, thats a knee slapper, or that shes won 5,000 dollars because of {make something up}. Those are a few, if you want more let me know. Have fun!Hope I helped!

My girlfriend is the best but lately she has been spending more time wit her friends then she does wit me and i barley get to talk to her. wut should i do cuase i really love her but she just isn't commited. i need help please.

She's deffinitly commited. Her friends probably feel the same way you do, except that she spends more time with you. Ask her if you can schedule a specific day for just the two of you. Friends are equally important to a girl. Hope I helped! Happy Summer!

My boyfriend n my best friend thinks im anorexic just because i dont eat breakfast nor dinner...i eat lunch...watever is the food in d cafeteria...but sumtimes i jus dont finish everything...like last nite, i only ate half of a piece of a chicken tender n 3 cheesesticks...n after that i was already full....i dont eat that much, sometimes i throw up d food dat i ate....i use to weight 152 which was overweight, so i lessen d amount of food i ate n now im 124...i lost 28 pounds in less than a month...my mom thinks its dangerous, that i have to eat or else im gonna b sick n die...

do u think im turnin anorexic?

my goal is 110, my mom thinks dats too thin so i told her 120, but im gonna go to 110...

If you consider yourself overweight, or fat, and always worry about your weight, you could be on the verge of maybe having anorexia. In this case, I think your just not eating properly. There are other ways to loose weight than not eating a lot. Deffinitly try and eat breakfast lunch, and dinner, even if its a small helping. You throw up your food? On purpose or not? These things you have to question. I suggest seeing a nutritionist and get a final opinion from them. Just make sure you try and eat healthy, veggies, fruits, etc. Hope I helped! Happy Summer!

my hair always dries frizzy after i shower even after using frizz free shampoo....
how do i get sleek straight after i shower

You should look into getting a straightening Gel. After you shower, put a pea size amount of it in your hair, then do whatever it is you do with your hair. Hope I helped! Happy Summer!
