Converse slip-on sneakers are cool for school.
Sneakers

Whether you're a trendsetter, athlete, punk or prepster, everyone needs ideas for a new fall wardrobe. Check out what you need to stay in style for back-to-school 2005!

#10. Vintage T-Shirts

Layers are key for fall, when the weather is not too warm and not too cold. So wear a t-shirt over a long-sleeved tee, or simply wear two at a time. Head to American Eagle Outfitters for retro-style t-shirts.

#9. Big Sweaters

Big, belted cardigans are all the rage for fall! If you don't own a chunky knit, then just rummage through your dad's closet and throw it on over a cute tank top for an effortlessly chic look.

#8. Hoodies

You'll be comfortable all school-day long in a hoodie. Cropped hoodies are a hot item for girls, while guys can keep it simple in relaxed fleece hoodies from Abercrombie & Fitch.

#7. Puffy Vests

Vests are the best way to keep warm on a cool day cuz they're stylish and snuggly. They're also an essential layering piece, so wear it over your tee, polo shirt and hoodie.

#6. Cargo Pants

From oversized pockets to zippers, straps and flaps, the really cool cargo pants feature tons of extra details that make all the difference!

#5. Full Skirts

Boho chic hasn't dropped off the fashion radar yet, so head back to class in a full skirt with a fitted tee, and add a cardigan when it gets cooler. It's a flirty, feminine outfit that's perfect for catching the eye of that cute new exchange student in homeroom.

#4. Track Jackets

Guys can easily up their style quotient by throwing on a track jacket over a T-shirt and jeans. Find sporty track jackets by all your fave brands, including Puma and Adidas.

#3. Corduroy Blazers

This season's sweaters may be big and baggy, but the cord blazer is shrunken and fitted. Grab one or two or 10 in colorful shades like blue, purple and yellow at Old Navy.

#2. Jeans

Back-to-school shopping isn't complete without a pair of jeans. They're a must-have for every season, whether they're classic, cuffed, cropped or cutoffs à la Daisy Duke!

#1. Slip-On Sneakers

Good news for all you slip-'em-on-and-go types - slip-on sneakers are the latest trend, seen on everyone from Mischa Barton to Ashton Kutcher. They're great for those mornings when you're running late for class and have no time to do up your laces. Check out cool back-to-school sneakers from Converse and Keds.

    The perfect friend would always be there to support you when you have a problem, and will offer to help. The perfect friend is someone who guides you to doing the right things, not the wrong things. They would make the effort to talk to you, not wait for you to contact them first all the time, as friendship should be a 50-50 relationship. They would stay your friend for years, not leave you as soon as they find someone 'cooler'. They won't act different around others to impress them and leave you. They would listen to you just as much as they tell you things. They would turn to you as their first choice, not their reserve choice. But most importantly, the perfect friend would be someone who always makes you happy to be with.

    You want someone who cares, understands and will be there for you, and not just when you're down. You want someone who makes you smile and laugh at 3 am and you have to try not to giggle in class because of something that happened a weeks ago. Everyone fights, but you don't want someone who you constantly fight with and who makes you feel down or drops your self-esteem. If someone bothers you to do bad stuff, walk the other direction and don't take in the negative force. I'm the type of person that takes people in for who they are, I care and listen and try my best to make them laugh and be happy. I have gotten mixed with bad friends as in talking me into negative things, constantly making me feel down, ditching for other people, insulting other friends. I need to change how I act, I seem to annoy and bother people a lot. And possibly I care too much, I also at times understand too little. I get attached to easily and hurt easily. I don't know what else you asked so imma end this now xD
