    It's not that your grammar is particularly bad, it's just that it's really... awkwardly worded. Like:

    See how badly phrased these are? Try and read over what you write before posting it and see if it sounds all right. It sounds almost like you're trying to sound more intelligent but aren't able to word it properly. Continuous practice is the best thing to help you get better. The more you write the more constructive criticism you can get, and you'll find yourself improving naturally. There's no quick way to improve the way you write, practice is one of the few things. Reading more helps too, any English teacher can tell you that.

    e: Actually, asking your teacher for help would probably be a good idea, they'd know your work best.

    The second one was the big one that stood out to me. "Simply" felt too forced. The third one really doesn't seem all that awkward to me though.

    Yeah you are probably pretty big honestly.

    ive dropped 5lbs since thursday cause i havent been ABLE to eat.
    You didn't lose 5 pounds in 3 days because of food related ventures. Your weight can shift 3-5 pounds give or take depending on what you wear, how much you have eaten recently, and your current bowel movement process.

    any tips on GOOD food to eat? i dont want to eat what i dont like. plz help! good low cal food sugestions plz.
    They make low calorie substitutes for just about anything, I'd have to get a better idea about foods you like.

    I find most of the time body weight is generally genetics. I eat four times the amount of my ex-girlfriend in calories and I only weigh about 125 (Underweight for a 21 year old obviously) and she is shorter than me and weights well over 200.

    I'll give some advice that my friend told me. NEVER SNORT FUN DIP! Dumb huh? I didn't do it, but he had a bloody nose afterwords. In all truth, he says his friends dared him to. I asked them if that was true, and they said they told him not to. There's a little bedtime story for you, hope you enjoyed.

    not trying to be mean, but, your 5'2" and you weigh 200? Hmm....

    I weigh 195 and Im 6'1 1/2" Everything hurts you some way. Like fruits, they are mostly healthy, but the acids are terrible. My biology teacher told us some fruit that had a certain chemical in it that made you gain weight. Besides, you can eat bad if you exercise right. I know a guy that ate eggs, sausage, burgers, all this greasy stuff, mostly protein, but he worked out, and he was muscled up. Id just exercise

    Hmm.. well every person has his own kind of personality, opinions, way of thinking etc. Try to find something that you can talk about asking question about his/her likes, their experiences, and many more. Also try to be interested of the topic in everything that you hear from any person, You can able to find something that you like. but don't worry by the time passes you will be better, It's all about human development, maturity and having confidence. Still ask to the people who have more faith and that always will be there to help you, like your parents, I think parents is the best solution.

    I was in those kind of situations when I was younger, but I know the reason of why. Since I was born, I had a problem with my pronunciation since I started to talk when I was 4 years. everytime that I talked, I pronounce the words bad, and my friends don't understand me so I was very timid in that time, but since by the time passes and gain maturity. I get better and finally I can interact with other people. But still I'm sometimes timid, mostly with girls on the same age as I'm.

    If you still have doubts, I can help you in anytime

    I need help. I befriended a girl at the beginning of the semester. She turned out really nice, giving me cookies before I went to my second class one day, and made plans with me on Valentine's Day. Since this Thursday, I was hoping to go meet her family today. However, whenever I texted her once on Friday and once today, me asking her about hanging out, she ignored me. I felt that I was my Asperger's Syndrome that kicked in where I am moving a bit too fast whenever I talked to her. I know that whenever something good happens to me such as doing something with a girl, I tend to tell about it like crazy and that's like a huge problem with me when it comes to being around girls. Would it be a good idea if I waited until Tuesday to talk to her? My dad told me that it will be a good idea if she brought up about what happened Saturday, along with her just being any ordinary girl. I am extremely worried that I might end a friendship by being this way where I am acting a bit too fast and begin to think that I am only good at screwing things up...

    I'm so confused with life, right now. I'm 12 years old, but don't say I'm too young to be thinking about this. It's not easy to put in to words, so excuse me if it's hard to understand.

    So, I've recently been thinking a lot about the future. Future job, future family, future house, everything. I'm scared to death, because I don't really know where I want to live, what job I want to do, or who I want to live with. I have plenty of time to think about all of this, but it's all I can think about. Every place I can think of living is not a place that I would like to live in and raise children in. Future job isn't as much of a worry, but I want to do something fun, that pays well, that allows me to spend time with my family. I want to be a good father, not an idiotic father like mine. Future partner, I can't stop thinking about this. I dislike almost every human being I've come across, and the chances of me finding someone decent makes me want to cry. I don't know what to do, and I know I have plenty of time to think about this, but I'm not sure if it'll be enough. I'm really scared of the future, right now.
    Mine is an unchanging love, higher than the heights above, deeper than the depths beneath, free and faithful, strong as death.

    Alright, I'll put this in paragraphs so you can respond easier:

    Well, it's really nice to see you thinking about your future life, but I would definitely suggest to enjoy your time as a child. You have 6 years left as one. You have to cherish that time. That does not mean to not think about your future though. You have plenty of time to think about this. But you need to go through this step-by-step. Start with the beginning/easiest things first.

    I'm saying that it's not healthy to be thinking so far ahead of time, especially in terms of a future partner. Love will find you. You cannot find love. You're trying to get into thinking about something that you're not ready for. This also goes in regards to being a good future father. That's a lot to be thinking about and in this case, it's way too early to be thinking about yourself as a father. You don't even have a partner yet.

    For your future house - What kind of environment do you like? How would your surroundings be in said environment? What kind of house would you want? What is your ideal environment? Look up some different countries/places on the internet that you'd like to visit, perhaps you'd like to live there.

    Future job - What is your ideal job? What amount of money do you think is enough to get paid with? What do you find as 'fun'?

    Just a few more things:

    Considering you're 12 years old, and if you'd like to begin thinking about your future, I'd highly suggest to think about school. Everything that you want to do in school. Like, the classes you want to take and where you want to go to school.

    And finally, I just have one more thing to say - Enjoy the little time you have as kid now, you only have 6 years left. Don't waste it, make the most out of it. After your 6 years are up, you'll be an adult. So cherish your time now as a kid. As some say - These are your Golden years.

    If you have any other questions about this or anything else you'd like advice with, feel free to ask me. I'm more than happy to help~! ^_^

    i agree with Gothic-Gothorita here. you are only a kid, stop worrying about adult things, they will most likely sort themselves out before you turn 20 (most people figure out a passion, a field they'd like to work, whether they want to travel, etc.). there's no use trying to plan your future at 12, because your interests and ideas will almost certainly change before you enter adulthood.

    This is totally right! *nods in agreement*

    @Moonrox: Also adding on to what moot said, you don't know how your future before your 20's is going to turn out. Once you get into your 20's things start to change and you begin to experience a lot of things. Vastly different than your years as a Child and Teen. Those 'things' can relate to really anything. Most of them, you'd least expect. Also when you turn 20 and after, you begin to meet and speak with a lot of people, like ones that are from different nationalities. And finally, you'll begin to learn WAY more than you've ever known in your 20's.

    If you're going to ask why the "20's", then I'll just tell you right now, that in your 20's you have a lot of opportunity in your life to do something. For Example: In your 20's you may want to go to College to study for a specific subject and travel, or you may want to learn a sport and become a professional player. In your 20's there are many options you can choose from, which is overwhelming for a kid.

    In summary, what moot and I are saying is that these are all adult things, and you're a kid. This is the time to be a kid and cherish this time as much as you can. ^_^

    Agreed. I'm almost 21 and I'm still uncertain about my future.

    To quote Baz Luhrmann,

    "Don't feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't "

    I'm nearly 21 myself, and all my course choices so far have left me not wanting to pursue that subject so far. I don't know what I want to do after University.
    You're not alone!

    My advice, try everything.

    Worrying about it doesn't help, so stop doing that.

    Listen my friend, I have this to so I know how hard routeens are to break and so don't put yourself down over this...you got to stay calm, think about what she could be going through...maybe she's going through something herself that's not putting her in the mood to talk...I know, I always get this feeling to when something goes wrong that "O, maybe it's me..." not always true. it could very well be something that's going on in her life to

    I have a sort of middle-child syndrome. I'm fine with my sister, but my 8-year-old brother is ridiculous.

    He beats me up all the time, (I'm 11) safe in the knowledge I'll get a guilty conscience if I fight back and therefore won't. He annoys me to the point of me just wanting to lock myself in my room and never come out and then says I'm the worst brother he could ever have and he would trade me for Justin Bieber in a heartbeat. Then at dinner he talks nonstop about soccer and how I should be better at sport and not rant so much about academics like him. 99% of the names he calls me would get me a permaban for listing them. I just wish I knew what to do. He denies everything I say to my parents and acts all innocent when I accuse him, so that's out. Help?

    I'm gone from SPPF to pursue academics, and I most likely won't be back. Bye!

He annoys me to the point of me just wanting to lock myself in my room and never come out and then says I'm the worst brother he could ever have and he would trade me for Justin Bieber in a heartbeat. Then at dinner he talks nonstop about soccer and how I should be better at sport and not rant so much about academics like him. 99% of the names he calls me would get me a permaban for listing them. I just wish I knew what to do. He denies everything I say to my parents and acts all innocent when I accuse him, so that's out. Help?
    You don't get a permaban for listing them once. Probably not even a ban at all. I don't remember exactly how the point system works, but you need to do a lot of wrong to get banned the first time.
    Just hit your brother when he taunts you. The slap seems to work fine for making someone stop talking, but doesn't hurt them. Breaking the nose is relatively easy and will result in a lot of bleeding, which makes a good warning. He won't taunt you again after experiencing that! There also is the put a piece of cloth in his mouth and bind him to a chair in the basement. But you might not have a basement. You can also try arsenic in his food if none of the above works.

    Thanks, I really appreciate it. =)

    Just a side note, the swear filter would stop most of the names my 8 year old brother calls me. Shameful really. Also, ARSENIC? I just read about it and despite temptations I'm really not eager to poison him.
