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)

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.

I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
