Battling Bad Breath

Bad breath - it can be a killer - especially from close range. It can send your friends and family ducking for cover. And it'll put an end to any chance of lip action. So here's some advice on battling fungus breath.

1. Use some common sense. If you're gonna be meeting that cute girl from science class after school - it's probably not the best idea to eat that garlic and jalapeno pizza for lunch. Try eating something a little tamer - and save the garlic breath for your mom. It might get you out of doing chores.

2. If you do have to eat that pizza - bring along some gum or breath mints. Try using sugar free stuff too - it keeps your teeth clean at the same time.

3. Brush your teeth after every meal. I know you've been told this a hundred times, but it's true. One of the biggest causes of bad breath is from not brushing and flossing regularly. And give the tongue a scrub too - bacteria loves to party there.

4. Don't smoke! It causes about 4 billion different health problems and bad breath too.

5. If you're ever in a real jam, grab a piece of parsley. That's what the ancient romans used and it can kill even the strongest onion breath.

Write an anonymous note. And tell him to put it somewhere that only you can get it back to see what he says.

hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
