Everytime a birthday in my group of friends comes, I tell them happy birthday and give them a gift. Recently, it was my sixteenth birthday and my friends were all, "we are gonna do something for your birthday". They never did. None of them even called to tell me happy birthday. My best friend told me that they are forgetful and sometimes need to not be taken seriously when they promise something. I've been really down and disappointed in them. What should I do?3 AnswersFriends1 decade ago
We have a large tree (about 50 feet tall) that sheds a lot of leaves and bark that my dad is in love with (because it provides shade and we live in a hot state). We live on a cul-de-sac and our neighbor across the street is a cleaning lady. She always is cleaning our yard and the street because of the leaves flying everywhere. My mom and I both have tried to persuade my dad to cut it down, but he likes it too much. No matter how much we rake and clean, it will always shed a few minutes later. Just today, our neighbor came up to us in his car and said "no matter how much you clean it will always be messy". He is the husband of the cleaning lady and he told us that she tried cleaning it and gave up. Is there anything we can tell my dad to let him get rid of the tree? Money is no problem, it's just he loves that tree too much! Please give us advice on how we can get rid of it and persuade my dad to let it go? Are there any big trees (or ones that grow big) that are desert friendly and low maintenance?

What is a similarity of satire between Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn"" and Kingsolver's "Bean Trees"?
I have to write an essay on similarities of satire in Huck Finn and Bean Trees, but cannot think of any...please help! Just list some examples and how they relate...I was thinking immigrants (Huck Finn and Jim, immigrant problems in Bean Trees etc.) Does that work? I'm stuck.

Lately, I've been feeling really down and easily annoyed lately. I don't know what's going on. I have been a jerk to my mom, one of my best friends but it's only because I feel lonely...I have a unique personality, I'm really upbeat. Lately, everyone I seem to talk to seems annoyed or indifferent towards me and it makes my self-esteem go way down. I don't know why I can be a jerk sometimes, but I think its because I want attention from people while others want attention from me. I'm really stressed out too, and I am really low on the confidence scale. I'm just plain unhappy right now. Another thing is is that my mom is being way overprotective about things, and sometimes really weird in front of my friends. She treats me like a cute animal when we go out in public, and she can act really odd. She doesn't at home though. Is there anything I can tell her to maybe turn it down a notch...please help me! I feel so mean! :(3 AnswersOther - Family & Relationships1 decade ago

Ever since I was younger, my parents have really been focused on making me a modest girl. I am, and I don't go out and do things like other girls. The most dreaded time of the year is summer for me. I live in a really hot state so it's worse because I'm stuck in a one piece to swim in. I really want to go for a bikini this year. All my friends wear them and I'm really tired of them asking me, "are you going swimming with your clothes on?" because I wear shorts and a one piece. I only wear shorts because my legs don't look good and I don't like having my butt sticking out. But I don't mind my tummy...which is the problem -- my mom does. It stinks! My mom doesn't allow any low cut one pieces or tankinis and I'm sick and tired of her always choosing out my bathingsuit. I never look good and I look like a child. I'm almost 16 and she's still choosing my bathingsuits. She tells me that there's "no need to wear them...they're like going swimming in your intimates; they're too revealing". Every single year, I'm stuck with the same problem. I don't want to be disrespectful to her, but I can't stand it any longer. I could tell her that I would wear a bikini with a tank top over it and some boy shorts, and at home in front of my dad I would wear the one piece/tankini. What should I do to not look like a grandma and start wearing a bikini? I just wanna be me...and that is definitely not...5 AnswersSwimming & Diving1 decade ago
Such as Cassius in Julius Caesar. I need two examples in which someone is jealous of another's power and is dangerous. For example:
Such men as he be never at heart's ease
Whiles they behold a greater than themselves,
(Act 1, Scene 2, lines 208-09)
Caesar addresses Antony when he eyes Cassius looking at him and is worried for his safety. Please give me at least two examples for an idea of what to write about! Thank you!2 AnswersOther - Education1 decade ago
We're in dance class and there's a song that has "go" in the title. It is a male singing, and some of the words/phrases include:
now strike (strike) strike (strike)
put your shutter shades on (4x)
shake that booty shake that booty
rock the (roof)? now stupid....now stupid...
now (something something) dip dip (2x)
Please help! It's a cool song and I think it may be something along the lines of "Makes You Wanna Go" or something! If you know, please help! Thank you!1 AnswerLyrics1 decade ago
Everytime I shave my legs, on the front part of my lower leg, it looks like I haven't even shaved because my skin is light and my dark hairs show through under the skin. Plus, if I put on ANY kind of lotion it makes my skin very irritated and red. I want to have smooth, silky looking legs without laser hair removal. I change shavers every 2 weeks and use Venus razors and shaving cream. Is waxing a good solution? If so, how much does it usually cost and do I do it at home? Also, my leg hairs grow back extremely fast, in less than 2 days. Please help! I just want pretty looking legs! :(1 AnswerOther - Skin & Body1 decade ago
The song starts out with an electric guitar/bass? then with a piano playing a few repetitious notes. Then it starts out with a male singing "come back my...the road ahead is long and I must warn ya, I wonder, where did you go? If I failed you I tell you right now..." then goes into more pop/rock with "all I want you to know I love you...All I need is the time to show ya." The it goes back to the way it was.3 AnswersLyrics1 decade ago

So I got asked to my school's christmas dance but I'm a little nervous. I really like this guy, but he's kind of nerdy. I'm not trying to be mean, but when he dances, it's goofy. It reminds me of the one guy on Cinderella Story where the "Matrix" guy was dancing all goofy on the dance floor. Is there any way I could have him calm down during this dance because it'd be kind of embarassing. One of my friends is close with him and I could ask her to tell him that he should act "normal". Gosh, I'm confused. And then I don't know what to get him for christmas. I've only known him since the end of September, and we're not going out. Can anyone give me some ideas about what to get him that doesn't cost a lot? He likes to read (maybe a gift card to a bookstore?). And also, my dress is an off-white and I really want him to wear black (it looks good on him). But if he gets me a corsage, it wouldn't match my outfit. I am so stressed!
