How Do I Change Myself? Please Help 10 Pts. Best Answer?

Asked: How Do I Change Myself? Please Help 10 Pts. Best Answer?

First of all, I'm 13 and am in the 8th Grade. Sometimes I'm really insecure at school; I'm afraid of what people think of me, and that if I do something stupid that I'll become less popular or something. I don't know why I feel like this even though I have lots of good friends and some people who think I'm a really cool guy.

Another problem is I'm sort of addicted to this video game, even though I'm ashamed to say so. I have enough self control to play it only once I'm finished with my homework on the weekdays, but on the weekends I play it so much. Then I have no time to do other things. I don't have any extracurricular activities because I procrastinate a lot as well. When I come home from school I might surf go on the computer for an hour, then start my homework. Then when it's time to dinner, I do the same thing.

Another thing I don't like is I'm afraid of change. I don't have any extracurricular activities besides Dodgeball at school, which is only once a week during lunchtime, for one hour. I'm actually pretty damn good at it, to be honest. I got 6 minutes and 22 seconds on my mile run in P.E., which is, in my opinion, fast. In the Football unit I was a great Quarterback and also a decent rusher and wide receiver. I'm sort of good at swimming. When I was younger I used to swim a lot, but I quit. I don't know what sport I want to get good at. I also sort of want to learn an instrument or do karate or something similar, but I can't convince myself.

My dad also, unfortunately, has cancer. Recently he hasn't been doing too well. He's been having headaches and sleeps a lot. So, this makes me stressed out as well.

The girl I like is also one of the best teenage gymnasts in the country. Let's call her "June." She might like me. Even though I don't know her that well, she's a good friend to me. She's pretty, friendly, smart, and so athletic. June just keeps improving. Like I said before, my dad has cancer. My brother is also moving to college soon, and my mom is probably going to be depressed like me when my father passes. Thinking of June sometimes just makes me so motivated to do anything I want to do. Whether it's doing my homework or maybe going bike riding. But I feel like this isn't enough, that I need to do more. My cousin is two years older than me. He does cross country, water polo, and swimming. He's very smart but he's goes to a great school. The school I go to is not that great of a school. I guess I'm pretty smart, but all I can do is make people laugh. Another is going to a top tier high school, is good at his Debate class, does tennis, etc. My brother is the director of this club in 5 schools in our City District. However, his grades aren't that good.

I know some of you might be thinking that my life is fine as it is, but how can I improve it? I don't want to be just some average guy, I want to be greater than that :P. Thank you for reading!

I don’t know, what’s wrong with me?

Asked: I don’t know, what’s wrong with me?

I am a 15 year old girl. I am 5'1" and like 130-135 pounds for some reason because everybody tells me I look like 115-120. So a medium build? But anyways I'm trying to get to 100. 🙂
I have chest length wavy brown hair and light blue eyes. I have a good amount of friends but like 2 or 3 close friends. I am going to play tennis soon. 🙂 I am on the high honor roll. But I always feel not good enough.
I have people telling me that 'you're good no matter your looks and everything' but I can't help but feeling that's not true.
I am too short, I want to be 5'8". I am way too fat, I want to be 100 or even less, because somehow saying that I'm not even 100 pounds makes me feel better. My brother had called me fat all my life, and so has my mother, and my father tries not to say anything but sometimes I hear him say it too.
I always feel like I should have persued something better, like dance, because I'm not flexible at all. But I couldn't because I have bad asthma, getting better.
I am not good looking at all. Besides from being overweight, the only thing good about me is that I have blue eyes, but even they are ugly. Light blue with a dark blue rim, and it looks weird.
I have trust issues, and sometimes not much amuses me. I don't have depression or anything. I am an atheist and I don't find myself hanging out with a lot of religious people because they annoy me, and when I do, that's right, you guessed it-they annoy me. Like I have a habit of saying 'Jesus Christ' when something goes bad and I have a few friends who either hit me or get mad at me for saying that. This isn't a religious rant, but it's called the first amendment, and the fact that I'm not religious!
I don't really like hanging out with people, not sing antisocial, but I'd rather do my homework to a good extent or read. I have never had a boyfriend at 15 and people call me a feminist because of that, and that really annoys me.
I've been told that I hang out with weirdos but I hang with nice ppl. Is this bad

Why Am I Like This, Please Help?

Asked: Why Am I Like This, Please Help?

I'd first like to say I'm a 13 year old boy and am in the 8th Grade. I have OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder). If I do something, I sometimes have to write it down or type it into a notepad into the computer. A lot of the time I have to think of what I've done in the past (usually what I did today) for honestly no reason at all. When I go clothes shopping sometimes, it's just SO hard for me to decide which one to keep and which one to return. During the school year, this made it very hard for me to focus on my homework. However, OCD is beatable, you just have to try extremely hard. My dad also has lung cancer. It spread to his brain, liver, and spine too. We thought he wasn't going to make it, but we didn't give up hope. He got most of the tumor in his brain surgically removed. He had this certain mutation in his body that enabled him to take a cancer pill that shrinks cancer cells. After chemotherapy and radiation, the doctors are extremely impressed at how well he's doing. The cancer has shrunk significantly.

During the summer, I did almost nothing. I took no math classes, learned no instruments, etc. All I did was take this "competitive swimming" class for 7-13 Year Olds for one month. I also went to Las Vegas for one week with my family and my cousin's family. I'm mad at myself for not learning any instruments. I'm not that great at any sport too. I kind of want to learn some sort of martial arts or join Boy Scouts. I could maybe learn an instrument or try an after-school sport. But there's some kind of fear or not enough confidence in me to push myself. I think I am a smart person, it's just I'm lazy and like I said, have not enough confidence in myself. I really don't know why. At school, I'm a pretty fast runner compared to everyone else though. However I'm by no means the best. Swimming is my only sport. I used to do it when I was younger, around 5 or 6. Then I swam until I was about 8 or 9 then quit, because OCD caused me to finish my homework very slowly. Therefore I had no time for much else. My friends kind of want me to join our school's Dodgeball during Lunch. I think basically all we do is during lunch every Thursday we split into groups and play Dodgeball. But with my OCD I don't know if I should do Tennis, or Badminton, or Team Handball, I just can't make choices. My dad was diagnosed with cancer last year in July, so that summer I did absolutely nothing. During the school year he started to improve. My family was pretty depressed during summer.

The girl I like is also one of the best teenage gymnasts in the country. Let's call her "June." She might like me though. We got much closer at the end of the year. She's pretty, friendly, smart, and so athletic. June just keeps improving. Like I said before, my dad has cancer. My brother is also moving to college soon, and my mom is probably going to be depressed like me when my father passes. Thinking of June just makes me so damn motivated to do anything I want to do. Whether it's doing my homework or maybe going bike riding. But I feel like this isn't enough, that I need to do more. My cousin, which I consider a great friend to me, is two years older than me. He does cross country, water polo, and swimming. He's very smart but he's goes to a great school. The school I go to is not that great of a school. I guess I'm pretty smart, but all I can do is make people laugh. Another of my cousins is going to a top tier high school, is good at his Debate class, does Tennis, etc. My brother is the director of this club in 5 schools in our City District. However, his grades aren't that good.

Another problem is that I was kind of addicted to this video game, even though I hate to admit it. I'm much more focused on my life though, now. This year I got this sort of bad teacher for Honors Algebra 1. Math is very important to me because I want to be in the medical or engineering field. There is a guy who everyone likes and he is an excellent teacher. BUT, he had to move to another school in Los Angeles this year…. I'm also taking Spanish 1, which is probably the hardest class in the school. He gives projects every 2 weeks, also he's not even that great of a teacher. He makes you use Google Translate on projects a lot, since he doesn't help you much. I'm not sure if I should drop this class or not.

Sorry if this was long :S. If you actually read the whole thing, then thank you for reading. Can anyone please help me sort out my problems? Everything is just so complicated right now…. Thanks so much 🙂

What is your lifestyle like? Are you rich?

Asked: What is your lifestyle like? Are you rich?

Ill start off with myself and then you guys can say yours:
Well my dad is a hedge fund manager who manages over $2billion in investments
We have a 7,000 sq. foot house on a private hill with a pool and basketball court.
The house has a gym, hot tub, sauna, steamroom, 3 decks, 6 flat screen TV's, 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
I am VERYYYY into cars but my parents arent. We have a Mercedes S550 ($100K) and a Mercedes GL550 ($88K) and a Porsche 911 4S ($115K)
