Advice About School

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I've just had my appendix out and I'm finding it hard to come around and do my [KWLINK ]homework[/KWLINK] again after two weeks off school. Help!
Chook


Dear Chook,

Sorry to hear about your appendix, but glad you're okay. First of all, don't be too hard on yourself. Recovering from an illness, especially one that required surgery, is a hard thing. After two weeks off of school, you're bound to feel overwhelmed and lost when you start hittin' the books again. Talk to your teachers and tell them you're having a little bit of trouble. That way, they won't think you're just slacking off - and they may even have some tips on how to catch up or get back in the study groove. Also, ask some of your classmates if they want to get together for a few study sessions where everyone helps each other out with homework and that big test that's coming up next week. Plus, your friends are always around to help you out with school stuff - after all, that's what friends are for! Remember, it's okay to be a little off your game after something like getting your appendix taken out, but you do have to jump back into school eventually. Don't let this illness set you back too far.


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    Hi, I'm not really into fashion but I can tell you one thing. You can just dress normally, just the way you like! It doesn't matter whether you're a teenager or not. It's also really important to you feel comfortable in your clothes. Remember, your clothing won't define you! :D

    Okay, so my hair isn't the 'best'. I have 'West Indian' Hair (it's naturally curly) and I have to use loads of products to make it nice when I'm straightening my hair. It then dries and all the softness and grease has gone ( :-( ). That's the annoying part. I would like a few nice, easy hairstyles that will look nice with my West Indian hair (that's all spiky and spidery when it's been straightened) even if it's as simple as peeling an orange! Anything would help!

    I am a teenage girl, so I'm either supposed to dress colorful or just fully goth. I want to dress grunge. Basically 90's street kinda. My mom gets mad at my cause she doesn't want me dressing all black, I told her that's not what grunge is. So, I am dressing pretty grunge, but I need ideas on hair styles and makeup for this style.

    Ok, so I have a Best Friend, I used to have 2, but one moved away and won't text me, and the other still "acts" like my best friend, but here is the problem. When I do stuff with other people, it offends her, when I don't reply to her text real quick, in her mind, im ignoring her. IT'S ALSO STARTING TO GET ANNOYING CAUSE SHE COPIES ME. She copied my halloween costume, i was gonna be a character off of american horror story. If i don't share my music with her, she says sharing is caring and she walks off.   Now I understand that this might be social and anxiety issues and she needs somebody to cling onto. But I'm just tired of trying. I need advice : (
