Blog 13: New Year's.

Firstly, happy new years everyone! This is a few days afterwards but it still counts. So today I would like to talk about resolutions and how to keep up with them. These are just a few resolutions that have been mentioned by others:
If you really want to loose weight this year, here's some advice on how to stick with it. Motivation is one major thing that can impact you to loose weight. There are multiple ways to motivate yourself, you just have to find one that suits you best. Like, if you're a adult, either have your kids motivate you or have your husband/wife do it with you. You'll motivate each other to keep one going. If you already have your motivation, have a schedule. If you want to exercise, create a schedule that can work best for you-but don't over work it. Exercise maybe 3 times a week or if you feel up to it, do it four times. If you want to eat healthy, sign up for a healthy website that gives you a list of healthy foods, or just orders cookbook. 
If you want really good grades this year, here's some advice on how to get them. Do your homework; it boosts your grade and it helps you understand the section better. Asking for extra help; it doesn't make you look stupid or anything, a lot of kids ask for extra help and it comes in handy for tests and quizzes. When midterms, tests, etc. come around, create a schedule for studying so you can dedicate that time for studying. It will help and you can think of fun ways to study. 
Those are just two of the resolutions that I've heard multiple times.

Blog 12: Heartbreak.

So everyone in their life will experience heartbreak. And a lot of people don't know how to cope with it. Well here's some advice on how to get over it and how to cope with it. First, do not sit at home and do nothing. The best thing to do is go out with your friends or family and just have a good time. Go bowling or do something fun. It will make you forget it. But now you're probably wondering 'well what happens when I get home and I'm alone?' well, have no fear. Try writing your feelings out in either a dairy or a separate sheet of paper. It will make you feel better. Second, if you don't want to go out, it's completely understandable. So have your friends come over and have a huge movie night with you. Eat lots of junk food and talk about different things. Your friends will know what's up and how you feel and they'll be more than happy to help you. But now you're probably like 'well what if I don't anyone to come over?' well your friends aren't going to let you be unhappy. They like seeing you happy. So even if you don't want them to see you, they will anyways. Thirdly, vent your feelings to someone. There are SO many people out there that are willing to help others-it's they're profession. Even if you don't think you need help, it always helps to vent how you feel because everyone knows the feeling.

Blog 11: First Impression.

Everyone meets new people on a daily basis or sometime in their life. Well, you know that very first meeting you both have? That's the first impression. So here's some advice on how to make a good impression:
If you're going for a job interview, look professional. Make sure your hair is neat, you don't need to shave, your teeth are brushed and you smell good. Also, speak good English. Don't use slang words and complete your sentences. Also, don't be nervous because then you'll stutter your words. Make sure you practice certain things in your head so that way if you do become nervous you know what to say. 
If you're going out on a date with a person you just met and you want to be their boyfriend/girlfriend, don't be obnoxious. If you're a girl, be polite and don't dress horribly. Look nice and clean and make sure you look presentable. If you're a boy, offer to pay for things and don't burp or fart. She'll think you're disgusting. That applies for girls, too. Also, don't eat obnoxiously either. Take your time and talk to them. Let them know you really want to be there and that you aren't obnoxious or disgusting. Also, if you're a boy, don't sag your pants or wear your favorite band shirt. Make sure you look clean. 
If you're meeting parents for the first time, always introduce yourself. Always shake the parents hand and state your name. Also, be truthful and honest with your answers. Parents will ask you certain things and the best thing is to be honest and upfront. Also, compliment them. Parents like compliments just as much as kids and teenagers do. Just be yourself and everything should go fine.

Blog 10: Crushes & liking someone.

A lot people are at the age where they have a crush on someone or like someone. So here's some advice on how to handle it. Firstly, don't run up to them and be obnoxious. Guys/girls don't like it when people are obnoxious. It's a first impression and when people say first impression means everything-it does. I'll make another blog about that at another time. But don't go straight up to the person and say 'YOU. ME. DINNER.' it may work in movies but it doesn't work in real life. Secondly, don't have your friends talk to that person for you. That will make you look shy and that you are nervous to be around them. So then they will think 'well if we go out he/she will always be nervous and that's awkward.' That wouldn't be good. Thirdly, don't push the person to like you. Constantly bringing it up and constantly talking about things along the line can make the other person less interested. Let things come naturally and whatever happens, happens. You will go through a lot of people not liking you back and it'll hurt, but there will always be someone better. Lastly, BE YOURSELF. I have mentioned this so many times in my blog but it's because it's true. People like the real you and not a fake person. Because if you lie about things, that will make the person think you're a liar and lied about everything. 

Blog 9: Christmas.

Sorry I haven't been posting guys! I've been busy with school work and I just haven't been able to blog. But it's Christmas time and I know a lot of people have lost loved ones around this time in the past few weeks or years. But everyone just keep your heads held high and keep all your loved ones in your heart. It's going to be tough but everything will be okay in the end. My uncle said today that the holidays bring joy-but also sadness. So keep yourself surrounded by friends and family to keep your mind off of a few things or just be around them to vent. Your family is always there for you no matter what and they know what you are going through so they always want to help you no matter what. Eat lots of holiday treats this week and spend lots of time with everyone. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. Also, my thoughts and prayers are still out to the victims of the Newtown shooting. God bless the families of the victims and all of their friends. Rest in peace you beautiful angels. Again, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.(: Enjoy yourselves!

Blog 8: Dating.

Dating can be a lot of fun but also nerve wrecking- especially the first date. So if you go on your first date and you're nervous, here are some helpful tips. Don't be shy. If you're really quiet, the other person may think you're not having fun or you're not interested at all. Be yourself. Being yourself will let the other person know who you are and you are confident with yourself. Don't text too much or not at all. This could also be another sign that you're not having fun or not interested. Don't be rude or disgusting. Don't talk about things that may be disgusting to others and don't try to make a joke about the person. They might take it seriously and it will ruin the whole night. Make sure you include the other person in on things. Always make sure you ask them what they want or what they want to do. This will show that you're considerate and it's about them too. And lastly, for the goodnight kiss. If you think that it went well and the other person thinks it went well, give them a hug and a kiss on the cheek. You don't want to rush things and make the other person feel uncomfortable. 

Blog 7: Boys.

So a lot of people think 'omg boys are such jerks' but in reality, they're victims as well. Not every guy is bad or a jerk at all, there are some really nice guys out there. So here's some advice about guys-
Guys don't like it when they have their feelings played with either. They are human beings and they do have feelings, so try not to hurt them. Why hurt them if you don't like to be hurt? 
Guys like to have a good sense of humor. If you guys can joke around with each other, then the guy will most likely talk to you more and more. 
Some guys are more sensitive than others and that is perfectly okay. Like I said, guys have feelings and some just like to show it more than others. 
They make great best friends. Girls can be a little catty at times but guys are a lot chiller and will let them talk to you about what's wrong. 
I'll make some blogs later on how girls show they like you and how guys show they like you.(:
