My prom is coming up, and renting a dress will cost me about $150. My mother thought it was absurd to rent a dress when I could simply buy one and use it some other time, but it costs about $300 to buy one, and I've told her that either way, I'm only going to use the prom dress for one night (I don't think I'll be attending another event that requires a really prom-y looking dress). I've asked my friend about this also, and she said that I could buy it and lent other woman rent it from me through Craigslist or a similar site, but I think that's pretty dangerous. What do you guys think I should do? Not only do I have to buy the dress, but tickets as well. There are a lot of other events going on which I have to pay for, so I'M not too keen on wasting an extra $150 for a dress I'll use for only one night- but if my mom insists on purchasing a $300 one, I wouldn't know whether to accept the offer.2 AnswersFashion & Accessories4 years ago
In the morning, I left it on top of the ice chest at the bandhall. Several hours later, I went back and it was nowhere to be found. I asked all of the directors and several band members and all of them had said that they haven't seen it. Thus, I can pretty much correctly assume that it had been stolen. I could care less about all my essays, powerpoints, and homework, but it had all of my college related things. It had my High School Transcript, several applications with my number and address on it, my resume, all of that important stuff. What do I do other than report it?6 AnswersLaw & Ethics4 years ago
HI, guys. Well, I have always been interested in joining the drill/dance team at my school, and I am going to be a senior next year. I would not hesitate one bit to join, except if it wasn't for the fact that I will take several college classes, be in colorguard as well, and have a desire to join soccer. I honestly want to be a part of the drill team, but I want colorguard to stay as my passion. I don't want to change and leave my friends. I really don't want that. Also, at the football games, I won't be able to be with the band/colorguard. I'll have to be in my own section (the drill team of course) and also in my own bus. It's the last year, I should try new things.. however, it's a tough decision as I really want to stay in colorguard and have it as my top passion and priority. Also, if I were to not join, I would be able to join FIU (Forensic Investigation Unit.. it's an organization that has to do with SWAT teams, etc.), colorguard, and soccer without complication. But I love dancing and I'd really like to be a dazzler. I'm just terrified. I feel that if I don't become one, I'm letting everyone who knew I wanted to become one down. Also, who wouldn't be proud to say 'My girlfriend is in the drill team'? I tend to care about what my boyfriend thinks although he supports whatever I do. I just can't help but think that it's something to be really proud of instead of just 'My girlfriend is in colorguard'. I don't know, I can be dumb sometimes. I'm sorry this was long.Thanks!2 AnswersDancing5 years ago
It clearly doesn't seem like it to me. I am the one who has OCD. I am the one who suffers intrusive thoughts, thinking that if i don't go back and touch that tile 4 or 8 damn times, that any issue going on in my head will end up being even worse. I am the one who prays out of fear because if I don't, I feel that I can lose anyone around me. I have to say 'In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen' 5 times, and after that, 'Amen' 5 times again, and all of that twice in the morning. It means that I am ending the prayer 20 times. And it's uneccessary, I know it. I have many more symptoms, but it just irks me and pisses me off when my friend says 'Ugh I hate the way this is lined up. It irks my OCD'. She says stuff like that. I tell her that it isn't OCD, and she just tells me 'There are different levels of OCD, (my name). Just because you have it more severe/deep, does't mean I don't have it.' Really? Levels? OCD is defined by levels? That pisses me off. And then my boyfriend had a situation in which something wasn't straight, and he was saying 'No I hate the way it looks it has to be perfect, it's my OCD.' Really? That isn't OCD. It's just a quirk. It's something they hate. They don't have the disorder, not like me. I know it. Why do people keep saying they have OCD when clearly they don't?
My brother even accuses me of not having OCD. That just because I like things organized, that it doesn't mean I have it. Sure, I like things organized, but I'm not obssessive about it.2 AnswersMental Health5 years ago
Okay, so we're teens. I'm 16, he's 15. Please, no bad comments. Just hear me out. This isn't really a huge issue, and I will most likely end up going to where he invited me. He invited me to a posada. I said yes, but the problem is that I've never been to one and it's held at his church and only the teenagers from his church and people they invite are going as well. Again. this isn't really a huge issue.. but I'm just honestly scared. I feel that I'd be/feel a bit uncomfortable and weird because I know absolutely no one except for him, his sister, and her boyfriend (not much though). I, myself, for one, rarely go to church. Either way, I know he won't make me feel left out and alone but I'll just feel weird. What if I decide to hold his hand or sneak in a kiss here and there? I doubt people there would judge but you never know what goes on in their minds. And then if he decided to introduce me to people, that's great! I'd just mostly feel nervous. But overall I might feel uncomfortable due to not having been to a posada before and not knowing anyone there except for him, his sister, and her boyfriend. And he wouldn't leave me alone. If he talks to his church friends, I'll obviously be there with him, but I can't help but feel that I interfere with that. With his friend time or something. Aghh, any advice on how to not feel weird or uncomfortable around faces I've never seen before (unless someone else I know shows up) except for 3?

Hello. Recently, I've been coughing a lot, which is due to the fever I have.. but I've also been getting brief episodes of dizziness. You know when you stand up too fast and feel like everything starts moving around you and you feel dizzy? Every time I walk, dance, or stand up (even if it's not fast), I get dizzy, but not severely, however, it happens frequently. If I stand up for 5 minutes or dance, it happens around 5-15 times. I've gotten my period, but I don't think that's the cause because this has never happened before. Every time I get a fever, which is rare, this doesn't happen, and I'm slightly worried because I really don't want this to continue. I love dancing, btw. Should I go to the doctor? And also, can this cause weight loss? I've been feeling like I really want to lose weight, which I feel a lot, but right now, it's at max because I'm going to a convention in 3 months, and I need/want to grow taller as well. However, I feel like only because of my fever right now, I want to lose weight, and I don't want this feeling to go away when my fever goes down. What should I do? I even told my mom to not buy me fast food from now on till June, but I feel as if this is only due to my fever, which is causing me to not even want to imagine eating junk food. Can anyone give me tips on losing weight naturally and/or fast, and if I should really get checked? I'm sorry if this was confusing, thanks for reading!19 AnswersDiet & Fitness6 years ago
How does it feel when you cosplay a certain character at a (not very big) convention, and there are others, even if it's one, cosplaying that character as well? Does it make you feel like if you're in a competition, or would it make you feel disappointed if people are asking to take their picture instead of yours? I might be cosplaying as Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler, and those are basically the stupid negative things I worry about. I always as myself:
'Will people like my cosplay?'
'Will they take pictures of me?'
What if someone else cosplays the character I'm cosplaying?'
'What if I don't do it perfectly?' (Althought I know it doesn't matter)
'What if another person's cosplay, whether they're cosplaying the same thing or not, is better than mine?'
Those thoughts plague my mind, and it's making it really hard for me to choose who I really want to be. I was also thinking of being Taiga from ToraDora, and it's perfect because I'm short.. but her outfit is somewhat plain and she carries this sort of wooden stick, and there's a rule that no such weapons are allowed. I'm torn! What should I do!?2 AnswersComics & Animation6 years ago
Well, in about 4 months, I'm going to an anime convention, Omnicon, and I am going to cosplay as Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler. Since he has a blue eye on his left eye, and a pentagram on his right (which I might not need because his right eye is covered by an eyepatch).. am I going to need to go to the eye doctor or can I just wear them without going to the eye doctor? I've read online that I would need to get a prescription.. Is this true?

My brother and I were watching, watching a tennis match on TV, and he was encouraging me to be more active. Note: I am not considered fat, but if I continue to just sit on my butt, use my laptop, eat, and sleep, I'll eventually end up getting thick, which is something I definitely don't want under any circumstances. Anyways, he was telling me about how I should join tennis because it's a fun sport and all, and it's good to be active. I'm currently a sopmore, and he said I should join next year, andi know a friend who plays tennis. Should I join? If anything, I don't want to join mostly because of the fact that I will eventually be too busy for anime, which is something I highly detest. Please don't say that I should just stop watching anime, though. Yes, I can watch on weekends, but it's nice to watch them on weekdays as well. I also keep thinking that if I play such sport, my legs will get all thick with muscle, and that's kind of gross, to me. What are your thoughts on tennis? Should I really join3 AnswersOther - Sports6 years ago

A few weeks or months ago, this guy (not mentioning his name, sorry) asked, and I apologized, saying that I can't have a boyfriend (I could just secretly get one, but I'd rather not do that, it's pointless) and that I didn't really want one, so yes, I basically rejected him, however, I don't like saying it that way. Anyways, well today, before Valentine's Day, he gave me a gift and Ii knew where this was going.. he was going to ask me to be his Valentine- but before that could happen, I asked and said somewhere along the lines of "You're going to ask me to be your Valentine, aren't you? Don't you remember what I said before..? I don't really want a Valentine/boyfriend.." (Keep in mind that I smiled through all of this, as I don't want to come off as a *****).. and well, the look on his face everytime he looked at me was like he was contemplating on why he even gave the gift to me. I did tell him I appreciated it though, and hugged him.
This just all makes me feel bad because he's a really nice guy, buy I'm not looking into relationships right now. The fact that I rejected him TWICE makes me feel even worse, but I kept thinking in my head "Did you seriously just not get the hint when you asked me out before and I rejected you? I would've said no today as well".. and there you have it.. Sorry if you guys just had to experience my rambling.
So.. do you guys think it was a d*ck move, or..?2 AnswersSingles & Dating6 years ago

I'm not even close (Ii'm 15, I don't want to have a baby until I marry), but I was watching videos of a baby's first words, and I admit, I was confused..
In the compilation videos, the baby's first words were 'ga ga' or 'ma ma', like.. they were just making random noises. I thought that babies just made random noises, and there first words would be something audible (obviously) and something you'd understand, like 'dada' or 'mama', although, those can just be random noises since I'm sure they don't intend to call their parents, lol. I didn't think that making a random noise would be considered their first word..
I'm sort of embarrassed/ashamed by being confused by this v.v
I'm sorry if my question/detail seems retarded, but explanations would be very much appreciated! Not that I'm having a baby soon either way, but still (: Thanks!4 AnswersNewborn & Baby6 years ago
