Hey All... I'm 26 years old & happily married to the love of my life!!! I'm a Carolina girl with the accent to match

*I Love giving 'advice' to people, and will answer all question's I get!



I have really stubborn black heads. And they're mostly on my nose. Some are in the corner of my nose where it is hard to reach. Well I can't seem to like get the stuff out by squizing[sp?] so I was wondering if any one knows how else to get rid of these.

These things are superrr awesome. I swear by them and I'm 26 years old. You splash your face with a little water, put the strips on then wait for them to dry then peel them off. You will actually be able to SEE the blackheads on the strip and be ready for a suprise because you'll see more blackheads than you thought you had.


OKay im really into photography and my mom said that a lot of people she showed my pictures to thought they were really good and i should enter them into a contest is there any contest for pictures or something along that line? i need a little help.

I HAD to answer this question, because I'm a Photographer.
That's awesome that your taking some really good pictures, and there are a TON of onlines places you can go to get those pictures out there and even make some money from them. (It's what I do--take nature pictures and sell them) Here are just a few:

Alright. Does anyone know of some tricks that I can use to make my crush remember me even after we are done talking, like cute ways to flirt or things to say that make him think. I really want to become a better flirt with him but I am not sure how.

Ok, the Number 1 thing that I can tell you and that I know 100% for a fact works, is....Drumroll please... PERFUME. lol.
You wear perfume, chat it up with over the period of a couple days, he'll associate that awesome smell with = YOU. Meanwhile, when yall aren't together, he'll be off with his friends, or gone to walmart or the mall or some random stranger will pass him wearing the same thing you do and he'll associate that with you and he'll think of you the rest of the day. I swear it works!!! You know, I wear perfume everyday but I never thought my husband noticed until he went to Iraq for 7 months, I wrote him a letter and spritzed it with my perfume. He cried for the rest of the day. Now, obviouslly your guy isn't going to do that but you will be in his thoughts which is the goal here. Everytime I go shopping or am just out & about and someone walks by me wearing Axe, I have my hubby on the brain till I get home to see him! So for this to work, you need to wear something that's pretty popular.
My fave's are:
Calvin Klein - Euphoria *****
Ralph Lauren - HOT ***** (this one they sell at walmart so you can scratch & sniff)
Paris Hilton ****
Britney Spears ***

(ya know, I hate paris & britney but there perfumes smell awesome lol)

Well, hope I helped!! Good Luck girl


I'm 17/F USA and taking college classes so dont treatme like a kid. thank you.
I was watching pretywoman and ws wondering.
Why is prostitution illegal?

Awesome question... Prostitution is illegal because if it were legal...Legalizing prostitution EXPENDS it,and also helps pimps, fails to protect women, and leads to more back-alley violence, not less.

Also, the spread of STD's would grow enormously.
Think about it... Most men are married, or in a relationship. Knowing what you know about STD's how likely are you going to be to pick up a hooker? Knowing that she has been with possibly hundreds of thousands of men. And it's a FACT that MOST hookers carry the STD TRICH, wich is short for Trichomoniasis and can make someone who has it more susceptible to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome (aids). So that's why it is illegal, pretty much just for our own good.
Hope this answers your question. :)


if you go tanning will your freckles get darker? because i have freckles on my face and arms but im SO pale and NEED a tan. so will they get darker? or just blend with my skin tone?

I read the other answers you got... DO NOT TRY THE MYSTIC TAN. I did that the day before my husband got back from Iraq so I would look all hot for him haha. YEA RIGHT. After 2 showers, it started coming off in patches. My skin looked like a digital style cammies that Marines wear. After that, I started looking like I had a skin disease as patches of my skin turned orange, while other parts that had washed off were now back pasty white. But yea, the FIRST day I got it done, it looked GREAT. But that was it...that one day. As far as regular tanning, It all depends on your skin tone as far as how your freckles will be once you start getting some color to you. Me & my friend went tanning and both of us have freckles and while her showed up more, mine just blended with my new skin color. (I'm fair skinned normally) So, hope this helps you some... :)


I was just curious to know, who you want to win the election '08?

My mom and i want obama, but literally the rest of my family wants mccain. I just would like to see how many people want obama, and how many want mccain.

All answers will help :]


Me & and my husband both voted for McCain. I just went night before last to see Sarah Palin give her speech in Colorado. I do not believe Obama is right to be president. But that's just my personal opinion. I believe in voting, you have to choose the lesser of two evils, and for me, McCain is the lesser. Also, I think Sarah Palin rocks. Her views on alot of things inlcuding our 2nd amendment rights (The right to bear arms) and she is pro-life and these are the views I share also. Obama wants to take away our right to be able to protect our family. (He ok'd it for the government to impose restrictions on gun ownership if he became president.) Regardless of what law will ever get passed, there will always be a 9mm safely tucked under my bed ready to protect myself & my family at any given notice.

-Just a Carolina girl with a opinion :)


so a lover of mine told me she was going to kill herself, this was a week ago. and now her phone is off when trying to call, i have tried every way possible to get in contact with her. And i think she's done it. She lived in York and just.... i have no idea what to do. i've been seriously considering following suite, life just doesn't seem worth going on when the one person i have ever loved, kills themselves.
I can't sleep at night, i've even been sick. the idea that she is no longer here.

If she lives in New York and you live in some other place, then you need to call the police ASAP and tell them you haven't heard from your friend in a week now and am very afraid that something has happened to her and could they please do a check. (they will have too- so don't think they want do it on your hunch) you don't have to tell them what you think has happened if you don't want too, however, if you do, it will probably get them over there a litte quicker. I'm so sorry your going through this right now. I would really advice the police thing. There's no reason for you to take your life regardless of what may or may not of happened, especially if it didn't happen. She might just be going through some depression right now and just doesn't feel like talking. -alot of people that go through despression will withdraw from everyone. You could try calling some of her friends if you know any, or any neighbors (If you know there names, you can look up there digits in the phone book) and see if they can please check on her. I hope she is ok.


how much does it cost to get laser freckle removal & does it hurt?

DONT SAY FRECKALES ARE ADORABLE. because i have them ALL over my face & arms and im SICK of them.

Freckles occur as a result of sun exposure. While some people with darker complexions have some freckles, they are more common on fair-skinned individuals. Once you have freckles, it can take some time for them to fade.

Make sunscreen part of your daily routine. Since the sun causes freckles, it's imperative that you wear sunscreen if you wish to avoid more freckles. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Since most sunscreens do not last all day, it's wise to reapply at least once throughout the day. If you are spending intensive time outdoors, reapply more often.
Exfoliate your skin once to twice a week. When you exofliate, you are removing dead, sun-damaged skin cells on the surface of the skin. The newer cells underneath haven't had as much sun exposure and though they'll still have freckles, they should be slightly lighter.
Purchase a skin lightening cream or lotion. These creams contain a variety of different ingredients such as burberry extract, liquorice extract, mulberry extract and hydroquinone which have been shown to lighten dark spots on the skin.
Apply a vitamin C serum to your freckles. Vitamin C has been shown to be effective at lightening dark spots and brightening skin's overall complexion. It's recommended that you apply most serums daily.
Visit your dermatologist. With a prescription, you can get more intense bleaching creams which help to fade freckles with regular application.
Consider photofacials which use laser light to fade freckles. The light targets the pigment in the freckles, breaking them apart. The pigment is then reabsorbed into the body, resulting in dramatically lighter freckles.
Try some all-natural, home remedies for removing freckles. Lemon juice, honey, tomato juice, onions, buttermilk and sour milk have all been shown to lighten freckles. Apply to the freckles and let sit for a few minutes before rinsing off.

Hope this helps!


okay, this is getting out of hand. these dots on my legs are getting worse and worse every night. do you think i have beg bugs? look at these links. please help me. i have a halloween party soon and my costume is very short and you can see my whole leg.

2. http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=51oja&s=4
(sorry about the mess :D!)

3. http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2uibqyr&s=4

this is absolutely discusting!
please tell me what this is, its been going on for a while. i have no recently shaved my legs because of this [thinking it was a reaction from the razor] could i have beg bugs??

Based on what I know about bed bugs, this could quite possibly be the cuplriate. One way to find out. HEAT will kill them, so wash and DRY your pillow case covers, sheets blankets..the works. You can throw the pillows themselves into the dryer for about 20 minutes and that will take care of that. Also vacumn up under your bed and all around it. After a couple days your "sores" should start to heal if this indeed what it is.

*Stand up the box spring and shine a flashlight through the gauze fabric to expose bed bugs.If the fabric is torn ( possible hiding place), remove fabric to prepare for spraying.

*Vacuum in area of bed bug harborages with an vacuum attachment. Vacuum along baseboards, nearby furniture, bed stands, rails, headboards, footboards,bed seams, tufts, buttons, edges of the bedding as well as the edges of the carpets(particularly along the tack strips) are key areas to vacuum. A good vacuum cleaning job may remove particles from cracks and crevices to encourage greater insecticide penetration.
Discard vacuum cleaner bag in a sealed plastic bag when finished.

So, to get to the root of this potential problem, you got some cleaning to do!! :) Hope I helped some...


sooo im thinking about purchasing BareMinerals makeup. anybody with experience with this product what do you think? do you like the makeup? does it cover well? does it look natural and nice? does it stay on long? does it get melty/oily after a few hours or does it keep staying fresh? thankyou =]] please only if you've used!!

I started using Bare Minerals in August of 2007. I will NEVER use anything else. Even at my age (26) I have had acne and it all went away shortly after using Bare Minerals. It never "melts" off your face or gets blotchy after a couple hours. You always look like you just did your makeup even if it was 10 hours ago. That's the thing I love the most about it. I'm a buyer for life! I just started my own photography business and I even use it on some of my close clients (extended family) so there pictures look awesome!


I am loosing hair EVERYWHERE. It's crazy! Everytime i take a shower, run my hands through my hair or brush it. It's just everywhere! It has been more than normal lately
I dye my hair with natural instincts and wear clip in extensions everyday. Could that be the reason of it or is there something wrong with me?

Thanks in advance

It is normal to shed some hair each day as part of this cycle. However, some people may experience excessive (more than normal) hair loss. Hair loss of this type can affect men, women and children.

About 10 percent of the hair on your scalp, at any one time, is in a resting phase. After 2 to 3 months, the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.\

So in other words, unless hair loss runs in your family and otherwise you have healthy hair, I wouldn't really worry to much about it. :)


So lots of chemicals give me headaches, like perfumes, fake sweeteners, msg in foods, etc.

Those I can generally avoid although my mom continues to buy 80% of food with those things in it, leaving me to eat things like french fries or bananas/fruits/vegetables and water.

I can STILL deal with that. But she has those air fresheners with the smells, like Glade Plug In and stuff, and they give me such a terrible headache/migraine, that i even start crying. She doesn't listen and continues to buy them and puts them all over the house even after i throw them out :( there is no way to get it through her head... i've even shown her websites about it, and she says that it doesn't affect her so she doesn't care.

what do i do??

WOW. Try getting her to make you a Dr. Apt and after the Dr (Or a school nurse maybe) can tell her that this is indeed a legite thing, then maybe she will listen. Also, normally I would never suggest going against your mother, but there is NO sense in her buying something that she know's hurts you. Migrane's are absolutley HORRIBLE. I too have them so bad that I just cried so I definately understand where your coming from. These plugin's cost like $5 to $9 bucks each so when she plugs them in the wall, you go and UNPLUG them. She'll get the clue when she keeps waisting money on plugins that she can't even keep. I'm sorry I really can't give you any better advise, I just felt so bad for you when I read your question. Hopefully she'll realize she's hurting her daughter.


i want a new phone that isn't a phone i have to pay internet for every month. but i want a cute phone.

i have us cellular. i dont like any of their phones :/ are there any phones i can buy outside of us cellular and get it activated there?

I've had US Cellular for the last 2 years, Love the service but there phone selection kinda' sucks. No, you can't buy a outside phone, they can't activate it. You can thou, try looking online or going to a different US Cellular retailer. Not every single store carries the exact same phone. Also the website has had phone on there that I have not seen in stores and there called web exclusives or online only! If you already know the type of phone you want, try calling around the different stores and if none of them have it, ask them can they special order if you put down a deposit to insure you'll pick the phone up when they speical order it.


heyy kirsten, i know this is long but please answer if you can. im so lost any suggestion would be amazing.

the first boy ive ever loved, kissed, gone out with, all of that is still in my head. we started daitng 3 years ago (wer both 14 now) and hes been in my head ever sense. i know he feels the same way and its scary because no matter how many times we break up we aways go back to eachother. it feels like we were destined to be together. and ithink we might be eventually. but...

whenever we have a relationship it gets so serous that im scared to even talk to him. if i do, we flirt nonstop, make all of these plans, and im scared where ittle leade. ive never been able to really get over him, i get butterflys just looking at him and i know he feels the same way. but i dont want to lose a high school experience by being with him, it hurts to talk to him because i feel it getting more serous and stronger by the minuite, but it hurts not to becayse i miss him so much. and i see him in shcool everyday and he just makes me laugh and hes never broken up with me i always break up with him because i feel myself getting too attached and i get scared and run away. i think i might really love him even though i know its not likely at this age. i know i love the way he makes me feel but icant let myself accept it. and he says he dosent want a relationship now but i know i could talk him into it but im not sure whats best. do you think theres a way i could really get over him? not talking to him isnt really an option, it would just be really awkward. hes in my classes so i have to see him everyday. i know i could try to get over him, but im not sure how to get over him for good. the second he looks at me or texts me all is lost and i fall for him again. please help

thanks SO much!

Sharing your first kiss with someone will always be a HUGE thing in every girl's life.. I still remember every detail of mine! BUT there's a difference in my first kiss and yours... You and this guy definately have a history. Even 3 years of a on again off again relationship is a pretty serious thing for someone yall's age. From what you've told me, it sounds like your scared to love him because of what might happen if you let yourself fall that deep. The only problem is, denying your feelings about him, isn't going to make them go away. The heart wants what the heart wants and believe it or not, you have very little control over that! :) I think you should try to have a serious talk with him about yall dating and maybe get back together and try to make it work this time. However, if you do want to cut ties and get over him, the only things you can do is involve yourself in new activities, hang out with your friends more, take up a new sport...but all these things are just things to help fill your time so you don't think about him as much. Even thou I wish there was, there is no magical words that can heal a broken heart or help you get over someone faster. The general time thou is 3 weeks of morning (being sad about not being together) for every 6 months you were together. So the getting over someone process usually takes a while. Our hearts for the most part make up our mind about who we are with because there so powerful. It really does sound to me like you do love him but for some reason just don't want to completley let him in your heart. Take some time for you to think about why you havent given your whole self to him in the past. Even thou your mind doesn't want you to love him, your heart....ALREADY DOES.


I need songs about someone that has past away and you miss them adn love them i need R&b please ?

I'll be Missing you Lyrics
By: Puff Daddy & Faith Evanns

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that
Life ain't always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words can't express what you mean to me
Even though you're gone, we still a team
Through your family, I'll fulfill
your dream (that's right)
In the future, can't wait to see
If you open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they
took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it's real, feelings hard to conceal
Can't imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your
breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death

Chorus: Faith Evans

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
[ Find more Lyrics at www.mp3lyrics.org/fy ]
I'll be missing you
Thinkin of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
I'll be missing you

It's kinda hard with you not around (yeah)
Know you in heaven smilin down (eheh)
Watchin us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Til the day we meet again
In my heart is where I'll keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I
need (uh-huh) to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts Big I just can't define (can't define)
Wish I coul turn back the hands of time
Us in the 6, shop for new clothes and kicks
You and me taking flicks
Makin hits, stages they receive you on
I still can't believe you're gone
(can't believe you're gone)
Give anything to hear half your
breath (half your breath)
I know you still living you're life, after death


me and my dad are extremely close and last friday he went to afghanistan for a year. so basically every day from that day on ive been crying. (nobody sees me because i go in the bathroom--except the day he left when i couldnt control it any longer in class).
it really sucks that hes gone because i miss him soooo much. im not gonna see him for 6 months and when he calls he can only talk for like 15 minutes and most of the time when he calls ill still be in school so he talks to my sister and my mom. basically what im asking is how do i stop myself from crying everyday? and how can i stop missing him just a little bit? and how can i stop everything from reminding me of him? please answer all or as many of these questions as you can. thanks in advance.

Aww I'm sooo sorry your going through this. Unless people have went through this, they will never really understand what you are going through. I just got my Husband back March of this year. He was deployed to Iraq for 7 months. Most definately the longest 7 months of my life. I fell into a deep depression and wouldn't leave my house other than to go to work. After the first 2 months thou, I began to find ways to deal with it as best as I could. I sent him tons of care packages! Believe it or not, It's great therapy! Also, make a countdown timer to when he comes home, every day that passes, puts you 1 step closer to your dad. You can go to: http://www.usps.com/shipping/flatrate.htm
It's the USPS website where you can order priority flat rate boxes for free and have them delivered straight to your door for free and you can start concentrating on things to put in a care package for your dad. He'll LOVE everything you can send him and you can make him things to make him think of home! Send him tons of new pictures he's never seen and keep him updated as possible about your school, friends, any activities your into. My husband told me when he got home from Iraq that the thing that got him through it was ME. That I always kept him involved in everything that was going on in my life so he never felt like even thou he was worlds away, that he was left out of my life. Also, you can send him leters via MOTO MAIL. I absolutely LOVED Moto Mail. You write him a letter online and the "Militay post Office" recieves it, prints it out and hand delivers it straight to your dad. It is 100% FREE. Here is the website: www.motomail.us

I hope all this had helped you in some small way and if you ever need anyone to talk to, feel free to email me at dkphotography0403@yahoo.com I'm always here to listen. I promise....It will get better.


Is it possible to get Pneumonia in only one lung? If so, how long does it "run its the course"?


Yes it is very possible, infact a majority of people only get Pneumonia in one lung. When you have it in both lungs it is then called DOUBLE PNEUMONIA or there is WALKING PNEUMONIA.

Most types of pneumonia resolve within a week or two, although a cough may linger for several weeks more. In severe cases, it may take longer to completely recover.

When a person has pneumonia, lung tissue can fill with pus and other fluid, which makes it difficult for oxygen in the lung's air sacs to reach the bloodstream.

**Double pneumonia** simply means that the infection is in both lungs. It's common for pneumonia to affect both lungs, so don't worry if your doctor says this is what you have — it doesn't mean you're twice as sick.

**Walking pneumonia** refers to pneumonia that is mild enough that you may not even know you have it.

Hope this is the information you were looking for!


Ok....so there's this boy that goes to my school he really likes me and I like him too...today we shared our first hug together and it was amazing...lol...but anyway he keeps asking me for my number but everytime I want to I just can't do it...I would say I'm kinda a shy person...but I really like him....what can I do....how can I give him my number without being so shy??? Please help me.

Thanx in advance!!!

Aw that's so cute! The First stages of romance can be so awesome! Here are some ways you can either bring up the topic again, or just outright give him your number...

*Give him a note with your digits in it...This one is the easiest of all to do..Just pass it to him as you walk by him in the hall on your way to your next class. This way, you don't have to be nervous about him opening it in front on you or anything like that. Draw some super cute hearts on it!

*Tell your friend to give him your number

*Ask him his number instead. He'll get yours when it shows up on his caller ID!

*Ask him does he have a cell because you have this hilarious picture message you want to send him (Again, he'll get your digits from caller ID) and if you do both have cell's, then you can start off by text messaging which is a awesome new age ice-breaker.

*Ask him does he ever get online? Does he have yahoo? Give him your screen name! I know he asked for your digit's, but if your shy, maybe you can atleast ask him this. The point of his asking was to get to know you better, and chatting online with him can make you feel more comfortable and less shy around him.

*Tell a white lie. haha. Make up this story about someone calling your house at 2 in the morning to speak to _______ and you told them they had the wrong number and they were like "this isn't 555-5555? and you were like nooooo this is 555-2332 LOL. It's a little cheezy BUT, if your VERY shy, this will get him your number at least LOL

Good Luck & I hope I helped!


Okay this is really kind of disgusting..

I have been as sick as a dog the last 3 days, I have a double ear infection and I was wondering what would happen if I tried to pop my ears when I had an ear infection? Not only would it possibly damage the ear but... Would it puss or bleed out? Sorry to be gross but I was just curious to what would happen.


Oh that sucks! I had ear infections almost monthly as I was growing up. I can tell you with most certanity, that popping your ears will make them hurt more. I understand what your going through becuase there is this pressure and it really feel like if you pop them it will relieve that and while it does momentairly, the pain isnt even worth it.

Try this to relieve the pressure and drain the waxy buildup.

Take a clean long sock, most likely a mens sock, put about a cup of rice in the sock and heat it in the microwave for about a min. then put it ON (not in) the ear that is hurting and take some pain med. not only does this take away the pressure causing the pain but if you do this often enough it will drain the build up in your ear.


I'm trying to find a song that relates to somebody starting to fall in love but trying to protect their heart...does anybody know of a song along those lines?

Leona Lewis
Bleeding Love lyrics

Closed off from love
I didn't need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you're frozen


But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melted into the ground
Found something true
And everyone's looking 'round
Thinking I'm going crazy

But I don't care what they say
I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Oooh, oooh...

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that their goal
Is to keep me from falling

Hey, yeah!

But nothing's greater
Than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I'm going crazy
Maybe, maybe

But I don't care what they say
I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it's draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I'll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don't care what they say
I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
