  • How to get a good friend (sort of boyfriend) to stop smoking?

    My situation is complicated. He is 16 and I am 15, and we're pretty close, though technically not boyfriend/girlfriend (yet). We are so different. I've never smoked pot or cigarettes, never gotten drunk, never had sex, and he's done these things a lot. But we have a pretty good connection.

    I'm okay with him smoking weed, but I am not okay with him smoking cigarettes. It's terrible for him, and bad for me too when I'm around him, and it makes kissing him gross. I want so badly to ask him to quit but I don't want him to then think I'm controlling and trying to change him. But I sincerely want to help him quit.

    I don't know how to bring it up without ruining things for us though. How should I go about asking him, and continuing to help him?

    Please help as this is very important to me and important for his health.

  • Any indie-rock music for graduation?

    Any indie-rock or indie-pop or alternative songs that my class could sing for graduation?

    Just anything with a good message, preferably about friends or getting older or moving on or anything like that for graduation.

    To give you an idea of what kind of music I mean, I like bands like The Shins, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, The Lumineers, The Head And The Heart, The Vaccines, Mumford and Sons, The Kooks, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and other bands like that.

    Thanks! :)

  • What's the best name for a character in my book?

    I'm writing a book and in it is a quirky, quiet, pretty-but-doesn't-flaunt-it, thinker girl. I want a unique name for her and havent decided out of these options

    If it helps, she has dark brown hair and eyes, fair skin, a delicate body, and wears simple quirky things.

    my ideas: (say which would be good combos of 1st and middle names):

    Emmerson

    Kade

    Aspen

    Elliot

    Paisley

    Adalyn/Adalynn (which spelling?) - sounds like Add-uh-linn

    Adaline (rhymes with Madeline)

    Lennon

    Thanks!

  • Not sure what type of dog to get?

    I'll be living on my own very soon so I want a dog. I want an incredibly loyal dog that doesn't need tons of excersize but I can take on hikes and long walks and is not a lazy dog. but that can also live in a large apartment/small house.

    I'd like a dog that displays affection and love and that has a big personality.

    i had an autralian shepherd before and it was perfect; loving, loyal, friendly, energetic, etc. but I don't know if an aussie could live in a small house without a large yard.

  • A good polaroid-type camera?

    I was looking into buying a Polaroid camera but the film is so, so expensive because they don't make it anymore. What is a good alternative to a Polaroid? I'm talking an instant print, and preferably the pictures look old fashioned (as polaroids do) but not super washed out or anything.

    Thanks!

  • Is there such thing as this kind of camp?

    I recently got back from a week long sleep away soccer camp. I'm not super athletic and don't really like the soccer part of it. what i DID like was meeting all the new people. I made SO many friends and loved the freedom of it all (so many food options, and you have a lot of time where you can do whatever and hang out with whoever wherever)

    i don't have any other big interests besides maybe art and music, neither of which i excel at. I've been to two sleepaway camps, but both had such tight schedules and strict rules that i you can't really just hang out with one other person alone.

    so my question is, is there a camp where teens can go JUST to meet other teens and maybe do a few fun things and whatever? and that doesn't have a lot of strict rules, and a lot of free time? I'm a 16 year old girl.

    if you could just tell me yes or no, and what i can google to get specifics, that would be awesome. but even better if you can give me some specific camps. i live in new england, so around there would be good.

  • How do I make a guitar lyric/chord sheet?

    I play ukulele, but one for guitar works fine.

    I'm not talking about the five-lined music sheet, i'm talking about the lyrics of the song with the name of the chord above, like the kind of thing you see on Ultimate Guitar or Ukulele Tabs.

    is there a trusted software i can download for a mac?

    i'd rather have it be online.

    or is there something microsoft word i can do?

    i've surfed the internet and found NOTHING.

    the only other thing i can think of is to print out the lyrics double-spaced, and hand-write the chords above.

    thanks in advance!

  • Ways to make my room cooler/artsy? Decoration-wise?

    I recently painted my room sky-blue, got black, white and pink bed spreads, and a few other things mostly bright pink. I love bright colors. I have my favorite photos that i've taken on a blue, green, orange, and pink fabric bulletin board. I have some of my favorite quotes written out nicely and hung around my room. Some of my drawings from when I was little.

    I decided though I want to make it really cool and artsy. I'm fairly good at sewing, so I just made a string of felt triangle flags that spell ELIZABETH, my name, of different shades of blue, pink, and purple. I also painted several CD's And put them on my wall above my mirror. Another thing I did is close to the top of my ceiling drew a black line, and cut out and pasted solid bird silhouettes of different colors.

    What are some other things i could put on my wall or ceiling?

    Preferrably DIY like the CDs, birds felt flag.

    I love music and art, and love love love retro stuff.

    Thank you :)

  • How to talk to my mom or dad about a boyfriend?

    So, I'm 14 years old. I've had boyfriends before, nothing too serious. Although I do take it more serious than a lot of kids in my school my age. I don't date just anyone who asks just because I'm single and bored or whatever. My parents knew about my boyfriends, but they never came over to my house or anything, we mostly just went to a few movies.

    A few weeks ago I met an amazing boy. I haven't really felt the way I feel with him before. Anyways, I won't get into that. We aren't officially dating yet but I know we're both into each other.

    My dad especially is fairly protective of me. If he's driving me to the movies to meet a boy, he always comes in to meet the boy. I think he trusts me for the most part.

    I'm just wondering, how do I ask my dad if this boy can come over to my house for a few hours? Should I have a friend or two over while he's over, make it a little less intimate?

    How do I ask if we can take a walk and have a picnic or something?

  • Yearbook cover ideas?

    This friday we get out of school (high school) every year the senior class which is made up of about 30 people, (i obviously go to a tiny school) designs a yearbook cover. The juniors, at the end of the school year, are told to begin thinking about what they want to have theirs be next year. I'm a junior. some examples of covers in the past:

    -Pictures of old fashion film strips with photo booth style pictures of graduating students

    -a collage of people - one person's mouth, another's eye, another's nose, another's hair, etc.

    -illustrated vehicles (BatMobile, bike, horse, boat, plane, fancy car, depending on each person's interests) with a photograph of them riding/driving it

    -A heart with a collage of states/countries that some people feel connected to (we had student from tanzania, one from ethiopia, one from germany, and some from various states)

    So usually we have the kid's faces or names on it. what are some cool ideas?

    the only thing i can think of is a mock newspaper but thats kinda lame...

  • Cute song to dance to with my boyfriend?

    I just asked this same question but wasn't satisfied with the answers... help!

    Sometimes my iPod will be on shuffle when my boyfriend and I are hanging out together at one of our houses and a slow song will come on and we'll just dance together. But whats really fun is when a happy love song comes on and we can like old-school slow dance (y'know, like spinning every now and then) or even waltz to it. so what are some songs that we could old school/waltz to?

    I can't really remember any that we've danced to in the past except for Everything Is Sound by Jason Mraz.

    so yeah, i'm looking for that type of thing. we also both like old music. we're both 15.

    thanks in advance :)
