Summer Stand

It's blistering hot and you can't hit the pool or do anything because you've got the no-money blues - never fear! There's an easy way to make a few bucks when the sun is shining, and people will even thank you for it!  First thing is first, you need to decide where you want to have your stand and ideally rope your BFF or your siblings into helping out (just remember to be fair and split the profits at the end of the day!) If you pick a park or a beach, you're bound to get a ton of walk-by traffic, but you might need to enlist your parents to help you car the stuff there, and help set up. Check out the list of things you'll need.

What You'll Need

  • Lemonade
  • Table (a folding table is ideal if you're going far from your house)
  • Tablecloth (this can piece of drop cloth)
  • Plastic Cups
  • A sign (this could be a fun art project on it's own, remember to set your price and stick to it)
  • A cooler or ice (especially if you aren't near your house)
  • Apron (lemonade doesn't seem messy, but accidents happen!)
  • Change (people might ask you to break a bill)

Fresh lemon slice will make your lemonade into eye candyFresh lemon slice will make your lemonade into eye candy

Tips & Tricks

  • There are lots of ways to make your stand more appealing, here are a few of them:
  • Decorate your table with flowers
  • Make your sign colorful and enticing! Lemonade is a cheerful business after all
  • Whether you decide to make your lemonade from scratch or from concentrate, make it more enticing by adding slices of lemon at the top (it'll make it taste fresher too!)
  • Don't be shy! Make sure people know you're there and then reel them in with your charm.

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you.  I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.

This is really true and sad... Many teens, have a problem with this because of society. This post helps. I have had problem with suicide and bullying. Ive felt like I should just end it because I have no point to be here because I'm being told I'm worthless, to fat, to dumb, not pretty enough, all tons of lies and i got to the point that i believe them. I'm an outsider in my school. It fells like a lot of people leave me.  I fell pain a lot. and There is bullying going on in my school. Life fell mean less a lot. I have to remind myself that I do have a point and that people do love me.  I know know I do have a reason to live and so do you guys so  Don't ruin you're life. You're to young.  You're to worthy. The bully are just jealous of you. Don't self harm tonight. Don't comment suicide. You all are worth A lot I promise. People love you. Don't worry about hatters. The hatter are gonna hate but lovers are there to help you trough the pain and if you did comment suicide imagine how they'd fell. Thanks for posting this it really helped me and really could've saved a life:) :) Bullies are just having problems themselves remember that!!!! Stay strong everyone!!!

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
