Film Ideas For A Graduation Party

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are some good activities to do during a graduation party for 6th graders?
    Well, i am having a 6th grade graduation party at my house. There are about 5 girls and 5 boys. I am already renting a movie, eating pizza and thats about it. I need some ideas of what else i can do with them because i invited the girls for a reason (=. Some things to break the ice with the girls? Thank you and this is much appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      an ice pick?

      ok so thats a lame joke.

      6th graders *googles to find out what years... * ok so 11 to 12 year olds?
      hmm if your renting a film, either make it funny or make it a horror. i now what your thinking "not letting ids watch a horror film!" but i find it really breaks the ice, tends to lead to the girls wanting comfort or at least reasurance from the guys. if you dont think this is any good how about twister, jenga or monopoly? i find pictionary works, but dont let them divide into boy vs girl teams. make them split evenly one boy one girl. team work will help them communicate more because they will have to work for a common goal.

      and if your the mum or dad try not to hover over them every step of the way, that will just make them more nervous. let them have the illusion of being trusted enough to be on their own. i know i had a terrible time at my one party i had growing up, my mum was right there nagging and talking to my friends about every little thing- ruined my party. I never wanted a party again.

  2. QUESTION:
    What should I do for my graduation party?
    So we're in 8th grade and I want to have a graduation party at then end of the year. I don't have a pool, but I have a jacuzzi... any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      depends on how many people you're planning to have over.
      But I would leave the jazuzzi out of it, instead why don't u do some filming an preparation and create a fun video to remind everyone what went down during the year.

  3. QUESTION:
    I need some unique graduation party ideas/events?
    I am donig my open house in a filming house thing. For one idea I am having a video camera set up for friends/family to say whatever they want. Another idea would have white plates and then having people autograph them and leave comments..
    I want a unique, rememberable party, Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Do a huge graduation themed scavenger hunt. Maybe fine a way to incorporate a murder mystery game or somethng like that.

  4. QUESTION:
    Need ideas for photography themed graduation party?
    I am really into photography and but don't have any ideas on what to do for my invitations or what colors or even what to give out to my guests

    • ANSWER:
      I'd use film as my starting point. Invitations could have film design on them. For colours, I'd do black and white. Favours - Disposable cameras so everyone can take pictures of each other to remember the last time you'll all be together before you go your separate ways.

  5. QUESTION:
    What kind of music should I use for a video collage I made?
    I'm really into film and one of my hobbies is making video collages for my friends and family. The hardest part of the process is music selection and this project being one of my many videos, I've seem to run out of ideas for music.

    I made a video of a collage of photos of my sister for her graduation, which will be shown at her high school graduation party in front of family and friends. I seem to have everything laid down, all except for the music. All I ask for is a couple of songs (4 or 5) that have a good tempo, somewhat popular, and have inspirational lyrics. I think the best would be a mixture of oldies and some new songs. She's a teenager so I want to have some recent music for her, preferably anything but hip hop and rap, and some of the older stuff for the family and relatives. I know it's a lot to ask for, but anything will help. Please list title and artist. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The best graduation song to me is, "Here's to the night" by Eve 6 and "Good Riddance (Time of your Life)" by Greenday

  6. QUESTION:
    For a graduate party can u do a different theme and just have it as party ? a.s.a.p?
    Like i may like to a luau or something like that when i graduate but i am not sure if u have to have a graduate themed party.
    i did not know where to put this
    but we will have a sign though and cake with graduate things on it.

    • ANSWER:
      Surely you can have any theme you want, and I think it is a good idea. Think of your favourite type of film, music, or cartoon style and go from there. Be original, and it will be a memorable party, not just a graduation theme like so many other parties. You don't need the cake w. graduation theme- keep it unified. Keep the theme for the invitation also, and just word it as : "Celebrating my graduation with a (luau, anime, avatar, film noir,whatever the theme) party." Have fun planning and partying.

  7. QUESTION:
    Any ideas for a 50's theme for my big brother's graduation party?
    Please any simple things to make for his party like centerpeices, games, invitiations, decorations, or any other ideas please let me know... and it's very soon so i cant order anything online! I want my bro to have a great party! thanx! =]

    Remember the theme will be 50's!! =]

    • ANSWER:
      A 50s theme party should be fairly quick to do but will need a good effort. I hope I can give you some tips, please consider getting helpers for all the tasks.

      The images from the 50s are easy to find. Think about the film Grease.

      Costume of Leather jackets, white t-shirts and jeans, poodle skirts, cats eye glasses, and pink ladies. Seems fair to ask guests to come in costume. You might get a few Jackie kennedy's.

      Music should be easy to borrow. Lots of Elvis, sound track to Grease and say Bill Hayley and the Comets.

      Invitations can simply ask for guests to wear costume as well as the usual venue, time, date and RSVP. You could make them on your computer and add some 50s clipart.

      Decorations could simply be lots of balloons and streamers. Plus 50s posters, pictures from the internet, 50s stars such as Elvis, 50s films and music labels. Borrow anything you can from people who were there!
      Vynil records would be good.
      Give your guests sunglasses as decorations and favors.
      The table could be a simple check cloth with some vynil records on it for a centrepiece.

      Food would be pretty simple, hot dogs, pizza, burgers. Ice cream to follow. Sodas and Coke to drink.

      Games could be as 50s as possible. Hula Hoop contests, a 50's singing talent spot, stocks for brave people to have wet sponges thrown at them, also 50s dancing contest just like in Grease.

      You could get one of the helpers to be the photographer. Make up a web page and publish all the photos and stories of the party.

      I do hope the party works out!

      Good luck.

  8. QUESTION:
    What is the best gift for my dad who turns 70 next month?

  9. QUESTION:
    i need party ideas for my 17th b-day!?
    my birthday isnt until october but i think it would be a good idea to start brainstorming now. and also this party is really important because im going to be a senior and this will be the last time to have a party with all my friends and i never had a sweet 16 party either so it needs to be special lol and i had to choose a b-day party or graduation party so i chose b-day. so if any of u could help i would be very grateful!!

    • ANSWER:
      Well since your birthday is in october, would you consider a fall feest or an early halloween party. Everybody could come dressed as their favorite horror movie or film, look for theme music. You could look for a dj who might have all of the music you are looking for. Rent some of the classic horror movies(I know what you did last summer, Chucky, Scream, Saw and have them shown thru a projector on the wall for people who want to sit and drink in another room. Strobe lighting, smoke, streamers, hire a couple of spooks or get your parents to do it for you. Get a sheet and let everyone paint it. Think of something cool. Or a fall party, tablecloth covered in fall leaves, real or from cut paper. Snacks, drinks and music. Have applebobbing, put marshmallows on a string, blindfold people and let them try and grab them with their teeth. Buy a pinata and let people hit it around, have party favors, I know it sounds corny, but actually, it still lots of fun, even at 17. Unless your friends are still too serious. Have fun, live a little.

  11. QUESTION:
    ANy ideas for a birthday?
    Please don't say drink and dumb sht like that, its ridiculous. Im about to turn 18 and don't know what to do. It feels hopeless for me and I just feel depressed, so can you guys help me. I don't know what to do for my 18th birthday on January 1st. ANy cool ideas would be appreciated or just the thought would be cool.

    • ANSWER:
      In answer to 'Birthday Bash' request for ideas for her son's upcoming 18th birthday party, here is a great one: I used the following theme for my daughter's high school graduation with outstanding results. We had a picnic, using the local 'residents only' park in our townhouse development. Given that the weather in the Bay Area is great in June and it was a Saturday afternoon (my cousin went early and staked out the area of the park we wanted), we saved on the cost of renting a space elsewhere. Everybody was instructed to come either with a photo or memory of my daughter's time in high school. One of the picnic tables was set up with all the makings of a scrapbook. There was the scrap book itself, pens, colored pencils, crayons, markers, glue sticks, stencils, stamps, glitter, colored construction paper, old magazines, all manner of art supplies. What I didn't have on hand I borrowed from my cousin who is a very crafty person and therefore the owner of all sorts of art supplies!

      Also a friend loaned us an Instamatic camera and I bought the film. As people arrived, they spent time at the 'scrap book table' creating a memory page for my daughter. If they didn't have a photo, we took one (usually with the grad). The scrap books theme provided not only entertainment but also it really made the party a huge hit. Nobody, not any of her macho young male friends or even the 'grown ups' could resist creating a page of their own. Some people wrote poems, others thoughts about the future, many of her friends bought a copy of their senior picture to include and some recorded old memories and new wishes but no matter what they did, everyone enjoyed the opportunity to express their thoughts to the grad in such a fun, creative fashion.

      As the writer of the family, my 'artistic' contribution to the scrapbook was a very professional, computer generated, four-page, four-color newsletter with stories and news items about the grad. The cost was minimal since I used digital photos I already had and printed out copies of the newsletter on my color printer at home. It took time but the results were worth it. I also wrote a very official looking press release to go along with the newsletter so everyone would have a keepsake of his or her own to take home with them.

      To save on the cost of food, I made a number of salads and finger foods based on in-season ingredients and created a sandwich tray with assorted meats, cheeses and condiments. I also set up an ice cream bar for dessert, which was not only easy but also surprisingly inexpensive. All you really need are a couple of large generic tubs of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, some toppings. I bought the cherries, whip cream and butterscotch and chocolate toppings but the favorites turned out to be my homemade fruit jams! The ice cream bar also helped get rid of all the stray candy we had in the pantry. I bought drinks at a local warehouse, which cut the costs even further. All in all, it was a great party and my daughter not only came away with a wonderful memory of the party itself but a lasting memory in the form of a great scrapbook created by friends and family.

  12. QUESTION:
    Do You Think This Party Idea Is Good?? Help!?
    Hi! I'm having a graduation party and I really wanted to make a sort of scarpbook/yearbook so everyone could sign in. My first Idea was to have a polaroid camera so I could put in instant pictures that guests would take but apparently they aren't going to be selling more film and the cameras are pretty expensive! (i have a budget!) so I was thinking I could use disposable cameras instead and have guests take pictures with fun props and accesories I will have on a table.
    I'm trying to stay away from the PhotoBooth since it has already been done in the parties I have gone to. PLEASE tell me what you think of using a disposable camera instead and just adding pictures after the party but still have the book for people to sign. Thank You so much!

    • ANSWER:
      sounds good just make sure you have control of a few cameras so you get pictures you want too because your likely to get some weird, rubbish and maybe rude photos depending what your friends are like.

  13. QUESTION:
    Hollywood themed birthday party. Any ideas?
    It is going to be in August, ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      My sis in laws graduation party is hollywood themed

      We are having a dress up trunk for the kids and taking "head shots" we will thne glue the picture onto a construction paper star that the kids had decorated and write their name on it

      we are also doing "red carpet interviews" and then showing the film later on in the party

  14. QUESTION:
    Hollywood themed party?
    This is going to be a graduation party for seniors in high school, I need some great decorations at a cheap price. I am very crafty but I am having a problem coming up with and idea. I will have a red carpet at the entrance. I want to have a lot of balloons, probably black and silver. I am not sure what to put on the walls. I think for centerpieces I will put a mirror with balloons and confetti. I have access to a bunch of stand up movie charaters which I will use. Anymore suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

    • ANSWER:
      Have someone available with a microphone to interview the "stars" as they arrive, and someone else with a video camera to film their arrivals. A fake movie camera would work too if you don't actually want to film them. Could you make oscars to hand out to the guests or make them actual awards. Best costume, best drama queen, best comedian etc. At my daughter's school they gave out paper plate awards at band camp. You could make paper plate Oscars by drawing Oscar on the plate award.

      Have a great time!

  15. QUESTION:
    Grade 8 Graduation Help!!?
    ok so in 1 week i am having a graduation party and i have a short yellow dress with high lack shoes. I Absolutely love the dress and te shoes. i have below shoulder length hair so i am going to straighten it. My shoes are open toe so i didn't know what colour to do them same With my finger nails. i was thinking black tip with a streak of yellow?
    any ideas pictures would help.
    Also makeup i need help. Nothing to bold i am a natural tan skin tone so something to go with that.

    No comments that i am too young to wear makeup and heels, i am 14 if u are going to answer like that don't bother
    thx

    • ANSWER:
      1.Get that perfect dress: Frenchies and secondhand stores sell clothes for less. Mind you, a lot of formal dresses used to be expensive, so the recycled dresses might be mid-priced. (eg. a 0 dress might be somewhere between -) Also, Macy's and Bloomingdales have great formal mini-dresses for about - . So unless you need a puffy Cinderella dress, go to Macy's.
      2.Jewelery The general rule is: Don't go overboard! Avoid matching all your jewelery. Mix it up a bit. If you must match it, then try to make sure that at least one piece isn't from the "set."
      3.Nails: Get a manicure/pedicure or glue on nails. Keep in mind that if they are too long or too squared off then it will not be glamorous- it will be tacky. "Forever French" or french polish is always chic.
      4.Hair: Style your hair to compliment your dress. Experiment the week before the formal to see what looks best with your dress, frame, etc. Hair accessories (feathers, jeweled combs, etc.) can also add interest. Keep in mind that whatever style you choose, clean hair is a must.
      5.Make-Up The general rule is: Focus on your eyes or lips but never both. You might want to take an hour or two to fiddle around with your makeup well before the Big Night. Start with a sheer foundation and use it sparingly. (Be aware that some foundations and powders can actually make your skin reflect several shades lighter in photographs. Also, if you're fake-tanning, make sure that your foundation matches your finished colour, otherwise it'll end up looking cheap and fake.) Decide on where you want the focus to be. Bold lips are not for the faint-hearted, so if you're unsure, err on the side of caution and focus on your eyes.

      ■Eyes: Smokey eyes are very popular...but make a statement with colours other than black. Copper/orange colours make blue eyes 'pop', Pink/mauve put 'zing' into green eyes, Blue/Purple emphasize Brown eyes. Neutral/taupe/brown colours work well for everyone but take care because too much can make you look like you have a black-eye. Not classy. Finish with a nude or clear gloss on the lips and a touch of rouge (ie. blusher) on the cheeks (to keep your face looking glowing, rather than flat and lifeless in photos).
      ■Lips: Lipstick can be tricky. Finding a shade that compliments your skin and doesn't dull your teeth can be hard- if you're stuck, ask someone at the beauty counter. Dark colours can tend to make lips look smaller, so avoid anything too deep. (But, if you can't bear to part with your burgundy-plum, then putting a dab of gloss in the center of your bottom lip will make them appear fuller. Putting gloss over the entire lip with make the colour less intense.)
      ■Glitter has its place at formal events up until you hit High School, just don't go overboard and put it everywhere. At High School and into the beyond, try using a gentle shimmer as a highlighter instead...but be aware that any lighter/shimmery areas appear larger on film and under lights.
      6.Shoes: For most girls, you want .5-1 heels. Remember, you will be dancing all night so pick up shoes you're comfortable in. Either buy cheap shoes you will not wear again but match the outfit, or buy expensive shoes that you will wear with every outfit. Shop around and look for comfort and style.

  17. QUESTION:
    Help finding a high school(?) horror/fantasy movie, please~!?
    Can anyone help me finding this movie please? Here's the plot (from what I can remember):

    Heroine's best friend commits suicide after she finds out that she has just been played by her jock boyfriend. From being a geek, our heroine decides to seduce jock to take revenger. But she falls in love with him and decides to abandon revenge when she sees that the jock has fallen for her and has changed his ways. But during the graduation party(?) she discovers that she is just "one of his many girls" after all.

    I can remember something about the jock "rating" his girls' performance in bed and writing it in a notebook, and this notebook gets passed around the graduation party. Also, a video of our heroine and the jock snuggling in bed is played on the TVs on the graduation party venue. And lastly, I can remember markings appear on the heroine's body when she gets extremely mad. I'm pretty sure this wasn't ten years ago. Actually, I have no idea whether this film is good or not, but the plot has been bugging my head for days now so i really need to know~ Thanks in advance for any help~!

  18. QUESTION:
    What's a good homeschool graduation project?
    I only have until May 16th and I'd like to do something to sum up the year. I don't have the equipment for a film, nor do we have what we need to display a powerpoint at the venue we're holding my graduation at.

    I thought of getting a big display board, titling it "Lessons Learned" or something more clever, and creating a sort of picture and text "montage" to list and illustrate the most important lessons I feel I learned through home schooling. We'd have this on display at the graduation/party... but a part of me almost feels like it's a bit too simple. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      I think that the display would be nice, but if possible a PowerPoint would be an excellent idea. Is there any way you can borrow or rent the necessary equipment? Check your local homeschool group, your church, etc. Many have this equipment and would probably let you borrow it. You may be able to rent it from an electronics supplier, as well, or get someone's help in making it (and another lesson as well!).

      I wish you the best!

  19. QUESTION:
    17th birthday party ideas?
    I need help with ideas for a 17th birthday party. I was thinking of like playing the game Apples to Apples and roasting marshmaloows over the barbeque but I can't think of anything else. Do you have any ideas? What would make this 17th birthday party stand out from all other birthday parties?
    I was thinking of making the theme of the party 'hollywood'. I'm thinking of telling the guests to dress up as actors and actresses. I will have someone take pictures of them and to interview them. I will also make a dvd with all the pics from everybody and give it to them at the end of the party. What do you think of this idea? Do you have any sugestions to make this idea even better?

    • ANSWER:
      Hollywood Party Ideas:

      Invitations:
      "Admit One" tickets. You can find them in any clip-art program. Just add your special touches (like when, where and what time).

      Want to be a bit more creative? I can almost guarantee that there is a film poster retailer somewhere close by. Film posters for current films are inexpensive (and sometimes free). Stop by, pick and choose, color copy a section and use the back for the invitation, asking your friends to identify the film on the inserted ballot! Send different people different pieces of different posters to make it even more fun.

      Decorations:
      If you are having a Hollywood theme party you might want to do some serious decorating to set the scene. I like the red carpet scene setter or the 5’ tall Marilyn or Elvis pictures. For a film awards celebration you might want to be a little more subtle with a Hollywood centerpiece or a film clip picture frame you can use as a favor also.

      For a complete selection of graduation decorating ideas and some unusual party favors, visit http://www.party411.com/filmawards-products.html .

      Dress:
      If you think your friends can handle it, have them dress up from the neck up. Necklaces, earrings, special ties and most of all fancy headgear (like in hats)!

      Games:
      ‘Annnnd Cut!’ Hollywood Party Game: Prior to the party, write down several different movies onto slips of paper, and put the slips of paper into a hat or bowl. Have the guests pair up, and choose one pair to be ‘actors’ first. The ‘actors’ have to choose a movie from out of the hat, and act out a scene. The other players have to guess which movie is being acted out, with the first person to guess being the next person to ‘act’ with their partner. The game continues until all pairs have had a chance to be ‘actors’.

      ‘Famous One Liners’ Hollywood Party Game: This Hollywood party game is a great one for guests to test out their movie knowledge. Prior to the party, write down famous lines from movies the guests will know. Gather the guests in a group, and one at a time read out each movie quote. The first person to call out the correct answer gets a point. To make this a little harder, for an extra point have them name the actor, actress or character who said it. Once all the quotes have been called out, the party guest with the most points is named the winner. Using Hollywood party games as a starting point, it’s easy to plan a Hollywood party. It’ll truly be a night worth remembering!

      HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME GAME: Recreate the Hollywood Walk of Fame by making a Plaster of Paris cast of each 'stars' handprints. Then, take a picture of the star on the sidewalk outside (or maybe in the backyard), in costume.

    • ANSWER:
      Jack (1996)
      From Wikipedia:
      "Jack" is a 1996 film starring Robin Williams, Diane Lane, Brian Kerwin, Jennifer Lopez, Fran Drescher, and Bill Cosby, and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Williams plays the role of Jack Powell, a boy who ages four times faster than normal as a result of a disease somewhat similar to Werner syndrome.
      PLOT SUMMARY: ***SPOILERS***
      The movie begins during a Halloween party with Karen Powell (Diane Lane) going into labor, and being rushed to hospital. Although the delivery is successful, the baby is born 10 weeks premature and diagnosed with an exaggerated form of Werner syndrome, an aging disease.
      According to his doctor, as this fictional disease progresses, Jack Powell (Robin Williams) will age at a rate four times normal. Jack is next seen as a 10 year-old boy in the body of a 40 year-old man, with a group of four boys telling possible stories of a 'monstruosity' of a boy their age that cannot go to school. Jack scares them away by dipping a fake eye into slime and throwing it at them from his window.
      Jack is extremely childish as a consequence of his secluded life - he has only had contact with his parents and his teacher, Lawrence Woodruff (Bill Cosby), who introduces the idea that Jack should go to public school. His parents initially balk at the idea of their son going to a public school where he could be emotionally hurt.
      When he first attends school, Jack is exploited by the other kids to win at basketball against bullies, and eventually to get adult magazines and other such items. As time goes by, Jack is accepted by the other kids, beginning with Louis, as they discover that they like him as a person. We see Jack's attempts to be normal in school, when he deals with his first crush and heartbreak, and the relationship with his teacher (Jennifer Lopez). By the end of the film, Jack is both liked and respected by everyone in recognition of the adversity he has overcome.
      The movie ends with a very elderly-looking Jack and his four best friends graduating high school. As Jack walks back from his valedictory speech, he tells his mother that he is off to a party and jumps into a car and drives off.

  21. QUESTION:
    how to do my business?
    Hi people Im aphotographer but I also restore pictures that are old or in bad shape. I whant to put up a web site with my services but I need some one to tell me exactly what to do and guide me. I would really apreciate thank you.
    e-mail me cramberry_crow@yahoo.com

    • ANSWER:
      you have the right idea,,,,if you are under 18,, I would suggest trying to find a business partner of legal age,, if you are in the usa,, get a dba, a "doing business as" license,, you just need to decide on a name and register it,,,then perhaps use that same name as your domain name,,
      yahoo has a great deal domain names for 4.99$ i think it is, then for less than 15 a month you could build a website with them,,,, again find a partner who can help you in this area,,, put some thought into your prices and what you want your website to look like,,, being a photographer you can probably put it together yourself very easily
      If you are limited money wise,, you could use your yahoo 360 page, or if your isp provides you with web-space use it, at least get the domain name... you can always use it with your e-mail and website,,, but do not rely on just the internet,, make flyers and put them around town,, tell your friends and family,,, maybe have special gran opening prices,,, etc,,, be a little creative if you have a digital cam,, lots of kids want their proms and graduation filmed,,, also weddings, anniversary parties, birthdays, charge resonably and you will make good money. I did it for extra money one summer.

  22. QUESTION:
    Technical Graduation Party Help?
    Ok,
    So, I'm making my senior video on Windows Movie Maker.
    And I want to be able to put it on DVD or CD when I'm done. How would I do that?

    Plus, any ideas on how i can project it onto a screen or something.

    I want it playing non stop til i stop it at the end of the party...and I dont know how to make it so everyone can see it...maybe a projector or somthing..idk

    all ideas welcome

    even i need some ideas for my party..

    anything is helpful thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      You will need a projector- which you may be able to borrow or rent from your school- and a large blank wall or preferably a canvas. Then you should be able to play the movie via your pc and put it on a loop so that it automatically replays continuously. Or you could do a movie premier type event with a red-carpet and "papparazzi" and glam and then show a screening of your film and then have an after party, hollywood style!

  23. QUESTION:
    I'm having an 80's themed graduation party...any suggestions, tips, advice?
    Doesn't matter on what, it could be attire, things I MUST have there, games we should play, uhmm. what else? DEFINITE songs I should play...anything! :] I'm just curious to see what some people will say.

    • ANSWER:
      In music you definitely need "new wave".

      Some singers are an absolute must: Prince. Billy Idol, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Madonna, Tears for fears, REM, Men at work, oingo boingo, the pointer sisters, The bangles, The Go-Go's, Wham and, of course, careless whisper by George Michael, and many, many more.

      Of course the hair mullet is a must hahaha, the Madonna hair and clothing style of the 80's also a must.

      I agree about the Rubik's Cube, also you can have crosswords from that time.

      You could try to get posters from some movies of that time: The breakfast club, ET, Porkys, Wargames, Ghost busters, Indiana Jones, The karate kid, Footlose, flashdance, sixteen candles etc.
      Or from TV shows: Simon & Simon, Magnun PI, The Dukes of Hazard, A-Team, Alf, Cheers, etc.

      You could check out this site: http://www.tripletsandus.com/80s/tv&films.htm and others fro great ideas of that time.

  24. QUESTION:
    What are some fun ideas for a graduation speech?

    I am a teacher who has been asked to give a speech on behalf of the staff to the Year 12 students who are leaving in a couple of weeks time. I have been asked as I am also leaving the school and these kids were in my Home Group when they started at the school in Year 8.

    In the past it has been a light-hearted/funny kind of speech, but still with a good graduating message. I had an idea about using scenes from movies and lines from songs that were popular in the year they were in year 8 (2004) but i'm not convinced. I really want to give them a good speech that will give them some good memories.

    Anyone got any ideas??

    • ANSWER:
      Perhaps a film or song does have some special meaning to the graduates and the school. Always worth looking into.

      You could gather material first, then decide what to use. To find those worthwhile memories you might want to consider looking back from the class perspective what standout memories have there been. Any special achievements, charity fundraisers, great teamwork, sports successes, parties. What was the billboard top ten 6 years ago, what was the big local and national news and what were the top movies.
      Are there any really funny stories? Which students achieved amazing success, which ones are the big personalities, which teachers have been the best, which teacher has turned things around for those who may have failed?
      How have the class worked together?

      using the material you could take out the real highlights and blend them into a speech on great memories.

      Graduation day itself is there to be enjoyed to the maximum as it will in a few short years be one of life's great memories.

      Looking ahead, perhaps there is a message in making a life which will be full of great memories. To do that means achieving, having fun, and living life to the full. You only remember the stand out bits, so try and create lots of them.

      I hope this can give you at least something to work with.

      Good luck!!

  25. QUESTION:
    are all bachelorette parties raunchy?
    I get the fact that a lot bachelor parties involve drinking and strippers and I am in no way in support of that, but I just watched this bachelorette party video and there were all these women in like a nightclub type thing with nude male strippers and all these types of women were just going crazy, from the ones that looked more promiscuous to some plane janes, and they weren't just rubbing up on each other, there were a lot of bj's involved including the bride to be, and some chicks even getting some with the strippers. I looked up the company that threw the party and apparently they do birthday parties graduations and a bunch of other stuff and like normal girls you see at the mall (including moms, aunts, and probably girlfriends, cause I seriously doubt that ALL of those girls would be single)

    my point is, this all seriously grossed me out, and I want to make it a point that I am not opposed to girls being comfortable with their sexuality and having this sexist view, or with girls giving each other intimate toys and whatnot that they could use later

    what freaked me out is the variety and quantity of women getting shitty and guzzling jizz and just doing things that seem obscene and excessive beyond just sex

    is it just me or do these things happen a lot less often then this video seem to suggest

    and if so, should I be worried if my girlfriend, or even my MOM go out for "girls night out" ?

    • ANSWER:
      Well dear...you watched soft core porn and you seem shocked that it was raunchy? Come on. It was a video and porn. That's Hollywood. If you see one that's called "pool boy" it's not an ad for a pool company either.

      As for bachelorette parties--no they are not all raunchy, they don't all involve strippers nor are they usually filmed in Girls Gone Wild #10.

      My husband's bach party was white water rafting and camping. Yes there was a lot of beer but no strippers. I was jealous but my bridesmaids would have never been up for that.

      My little cousin had everyone over for a slumber party. She'd been friends with the same girls since they were 5 so they rented a whole bunch of movies through the ages (Mary Kate and Ashley, a couple movies they adored when they were 6 through modern chick flicks). A lot of popcorn and soda was involved.

      I've heard of girls doing a weekend or a spa trip. One of my good friends wanted to do 4 days in NYC (unfortunately being a trust fund baby she had no idea that the rest of us couldn't afford that and was furious). One of my guy friends got married. His bride had several of her friends go out to a really yuppy ritzy martini bar frequented by politicians.

      Bachelorette parties are usually based on the bride. If the bride is into strippers, they might do that. But if the bride would rather go to a spa or spend the day out on the lake, that would be the bachelorette party.

      As for your Mom going out for girls night....girls night is not a bachelorette party. Bach parties are what happens right before someone gets married. It's the bride or groom's last hoorah. It is not just Friday night out with the girls. Next you don't get to control what your mom does. She's a grown woman and makes her own decisions but if it eases your mind, I bet she's outgrown Girls Gone Wild. Usually that movie uses spring breakers (18-22 yo). By the time people get older, they outgrow that.

      As for your girlfriend, I don't know. She might be like that. You don't get to control her behavior. You can break up if you don't agree but instead I think it would be best to merely ask your girlfriend if she's ever been in a porn rather than have issues that are based on delusions. After all, you watched a video but have no reason to think she would act like that. It's rather like saying since you saw a black guy get arrested, you think your boss gets arrested on weekends. You spend a lot of time jumping to some distant (and illogical) conclusions.

  26. QUESTION:
    Having a party and need some help with ideas?
    So some of the kids at my school (some happen to be my friends) are having a party for graduation from middle school, and since they do drugs, its going to be illegal. Since my friends and I are not into that stuff, not to mention disapprove of them getting high on weed and E every weekend, we are going to have our own party to sort of "silent protest" theirs, and have more non-artificial fun, instead of feeling lame for being smart and not getting into that stuff.

    So, this party is going to be in my fairly large basement, 11 or so teens, not a huge thing, just a few of us hanging out.

    What I need from you, is a few suggestions:

    1. We are going to have a projector!!! What movies should we have? We are all 14, both boys and girls, all have our own very different tastes, but all of us are definitely NOT into pre-teen movies like high school musical. We are "cultured" as they say, and enjoy stupid movies from the 80's, and horror films. What do you suggest to please a group of people that are so different from each other?

    2. What sort of things should we do? Just hang out? There will be food, and drinks, and loud music..... I have a Wii, but there is no TV down there.

    3. How are we going to make a basement look cool? Lights? Decorations? I need some help.

    Please take some time to help me out, it will be very much appreciated! Thanks :)

    Someone PLEASE help!?
    Okay,
    so I'm having this Hollywood-themed birthday party,
    (because I wanna be an actress)
    and I need a cake...
    The cake needs to have something to do with Hollywood& pictures would be nice,
    plus,

    you are helping me SO much!
    THANK YOUU!

    • ANSWER:
      I had a Hollywood themed graduation party because I was majoring in theater (acting!). I got my cake done at a bakery and the middle od it was a big star that said 'Jennifer' (my name, lol) and above that was a marquee that said 'Congratulations'. Yours should say Happy Birthday. They did the whole border of the cake in silver glitter icing and the lights on the marque in gold. Then around that I had a film reel that was slightly unrolled so that the film strip curled around the star on the bottom of the cake. There was also a camera on it and I believe something else but don't remember what.
      I don't have any pictures on my computer nor can I find them to upload...but I hope I gave you some ideas!

  28. QUESTION:
    good movie idea? what do u think?
    it's a romantic comedy. the movie will be named "Love Me, Hate Me"

    landon (the mr. popular and perfect in high school) had all he wanted, he was the star football player, had the best looking girlfriends, the richest kid, and had a 4.0 and all that. but during his high school years he was an d!ck to anyone he didn't like. so there's this nerd girl, abby, who was SUPER shy and antisocial. for a graduation prank, he asks her out as a joke (but she doesnt know) by going on a fake date and then blindfolding her when they get in the car. landon tells abby that they're going somewhere special to look at the stars. he ends up taking her to a dump. he escorts her out, she's still blindfolded, and it starts to rain. he tells abby that they were going to kiss in the rain. he spins her 3 times and tells her to try to get him. he jumps in the car and leaves to go to a party thinking that he'll never see her again. after five minutes, she takes off the blindfold and realizes she's by herself. she's hurt REALLY bad and ends up spending her graduation night walking home in the pouring rain by herself. abby takes a vow to never trust a man or to never be in a relationship. it's 10 years later and landon is rich, has a great job, as a successful film producer in southern california, and he can attract any girl. one day, he discovers a nightmare: his boss tells him that abby is temporarily transfering to his office from britain and they're assigned as partners for just 1 month and a half (8 weeks). here's the problem: abby transformed from geek to drop dead gorgeous and she's completely different from what she was in the past. landon falls in love with her, but she still remembers what he did to her and she's still pissed and upset about it. will landon get her to forgive him and make her fall in love with him in a span of 8 weeks and prove to her that this time it's for real and he's changed, or will everything go completely wrong and abby goes back to britain?

    • ANSWER:
      Ehh, it's cliched. Most romantic comedies are, actually. Also, the title is a bit cliched as well. It's just...okay. Boy does something mean to geeky girl, geeky girl becomes beautiful and the two of them are stuck in situation together, and blah blah blah. All this does is tell me how shallow and awful the boy is for not caring about this girl's personality and just falling in love with her for her looks. It's silly, and...well...just shallow.

      Please don't take any of this personally. I'm a writer-in-training at my college, so I know what it's like to receive some harsh criticism for stories I've written and thought would be good. If you can make this work and overcome the cliches in some way, it could be really nice. But for now, it's just a crude interpretation of so many other romantic comedies.

  29. QUESTION:
    What's a good song to represent the end of my high school career?
    I've filmed about 150 candid videos from various events throughout my senior year - games, practices, parties, funny moments in class, etc. and one of my friends gave me the idea to compile them into a movie at the end of the year and put it to music, making a video scrapbook of the past year. Being it my graduation year, I want the song to have some kind of representation of the past year and how we finally made it but it's so bittersweet - something along those lines. I refuse to do the song Graduation by Vitamin C, because I don't want it to be TOO cheesy, but I'm stuck on what to pick, though! Any suggestions?

  30. QUESTION:
    I just need some advice about life?
    I'm 18 years old, keep that in mind, and excuse me for the typos, i'm typing as i think

    I was supposed to start school in the fall ( i was excited because its in the heart of cleveland and i love the city. I planned on being a film major, where better to live than the city), but my financial didn't work out as planned, and it would have left me 88,000 in debt by graduation. so i decided to go to a new, less expensive school in the spring and live with my boyfriend. well, my parents decide to move to the country, an hour away from my old home and my boyfriend tells me that its not a good idea that we live together until i get a job and am secure financially. It's hard to get a job around here because its mostly family owned businesses.

    My friend who was basically a bad person(she's always trying to be bad, drinking and smoking and getting in trouble, i stopped talking to her for a while, don't want to get into it) is now in college in comlumbus, having the time of her like, parties everyday and gets good grades as well. and now my sisters, who had no aspiration to go to college after HS (they're not too awesome either, their with bad guys and they both had kids very early) are now going to college and get lots of money back from their fiancial aid. but me, i get to live in the country with my parents for longer than i ever expected, and I might not be able to go to college if I can;t move in with my boyfriend. i don't know what to do, i tried all my life to be a good person, and it didnt really get my anywhere. and honestly, i don't care if you say that i'm being overdramtic/melodramtic or I'm looking too far into it...i just want to know how i can improve my situation. PS, i can't drive, i havent had time to even learn because we go with my great aunt to her cancer treatments everyday.

    please help, it would make me so happy.

    • ANSWER:
      Clearly, you have to go to school. If you have to go into debt to do it, do so. You wouldn't think twice, having graduated and taken a full time job, about taking out an ,000 mortgage. Then why skimp on your schooling, which is so much more important since it will determine your career, your income, your entire life? And now is the time to do it, because I think you're already getting a sense of the difficulties that await you if you enter the work world and then try to go back to school. More often than not, it doesn't happen: you have a job, you have a mortgage and car payments, eventually kids. It's crucial that you do it now.

  31. QUESTION:
    hollywood theme sweet sixteen? or mardi gras?
    hey my friend and i are comibining our sweet 16.
    most likely we are having a hollywood theme. and it's gonna be at her house since we can't afford to rent out a place, plus hten we can use the money for toerh stuff.

    so any ideas for anything? even games! guys /girls. but her rents will deff. not let there be spin bottle... truth & dare yes, but no kissing unless we like hid in the garage lol. prolly 20 ppl.

    so how to pull off hollywood/ games? she has a pool!

    and if we were to do mardi gras, what could we do? (although i think she's set on hollywood.) and which theme is better?

    • ANSWER:
      hollywood is better.

      here are a ton of ideas to help you out:
      Invitations:

      "Admit One" tickets. You can find them in any clip-art program. Just add your special touches (like when, where and what time) and insert a "ballot" for entry to the party. Your friends can then choose best film, best actor, best actress--so on and so forth.

      Want to be a bit more creative? I can almost guarantee that there is a film poster retailer somewhere close by. Film posters for current films are inexpensive (and sometimes free). Stop by, pick and choose, color copy a section and use the back for the invitation, asking your friends to identify the film on the inserted ballot! Send different people different pieces of different posters to make it even more fun.

      Or order one of our personalized Hollywood theme party invitations.

      Decorations:

      If you are having a Hollywood theme party you might want to do some serious decorating to set the scene. I like the red carpet scene setter or the 5’ tall Marilyn or Elvis pictures. For a film awards celebration you might want to be a little more subtle with a Hollywood centerpiece or a film clip picture frame you can use as a favor also.

      For a complete selection of graduation decorating ideas and some unusual party favors, visit Hollywood Decorating411.

      Dress:

      If you think your friends can handle it, have them dress up from the neck up. Necklaces, earrings, special ties and most of all fancy headgear (like in hats)!

      Menu:

      Well, come on. Pretty simple, right? Yep. It's 9 o'clock at night before the show even gets started, so dinner isn't necessary, but snacks are. You need to open a concession stand. Popcorn (buttered and un-), candy bars, nachos, bottled water, pop and stuff (and some healthy stuff if you insist). And if you really want to make your guests feel like they're actually at their favorite cinema--charge for a personalized candy bar (link to Hollywood custom page) and donate the money to a good cause. It’s what all Hollywood personalities do! That should do it for food!

      You don’t want to clean up that late at night so use paper plates. There are some really fun designs available.

      One last thing, your local candy emporium should have licensed chocolate trophies. Go for it. If they aren't in stock, they can probably find a mold and make them to order. A very cute addition to any table. Or as a "thank you for being here" gift on the way out.

      Activities:

      I'm sure you don't need my help on this, but okay, if you insist.

      1. Best film, best actor? If you didn't insert a ballot (or for those of your friends who came without), distribute them as people enter. Don't forget to include a list of nominees, or they may be stumped. An adequate prize might be two tickets to a local theater.

      2. Show and tell. If you mailed out poster pieces, use them. If you didn't, gather a few, cut them up and display them for people to identify on a special form. Form teams of two (a lot more fun).

      3. Who said! Quotes from this year's TOP TEN. Put 'em down and let guests identify the film, the actor and the scene. Movie mavens will love this one.

      In the story you might want to include:
      -short sentences - builds up suspense.
      -details - of people and scenery
      -weather?- gives it a mood
      -include some sentence features e.g. onomatopoeia, metaphor, simile are very useful and make stories less boring.
      -the girl's thoughts.
      You might wanna think about the style/theme of writing eg 1st person, 2nd person and also the tense is important. Most people forget so watch out because ur grades can drop

I'm gunna practice drawing too since I'm taking art next year and I wanna be better lol. Another great thing to do over the summer is volenteer at places..since I love animals I'm gunna try to volenteer to help a vet or an animal shelter. Have a good summerr =]

    • ANSWER:
      Dan, I am going to tell it like it is.

      1. need to hold off the comparison. if you want to compare, compare to those who are 21 years of age from 3rd or 4th world countries who work for less than /DAY.

      2. good looking guys- you need to look further ahead. all those who are partying now, will pay a price later. when i was in high school, and universities, I also was jealous at those who partied, who were good looking, and those with chicks all around them, but now, most of those I knew are either broke, with pot bellies, no girls, and homeless. On the other hand, here are some examples of guys who were normal guys like you and I who never partied at college(not invited) but look at where are they now:
      1. Bill gates - college drop out
      2. Steve Jobs - the iphone guy(i think, LOL)
      3. Ted turner - you know, married to whats her name, Fonda.
      4. Mark Zuckerberg - you might not know him, but do you know Facebook(he is one of the founders)
      5. Biz Stone - another geek who owns something called Tweeter
      There are many more, DAN, make your money now and party later.

      3. Chicks/Girls - I'll be the devil's advocate, how many girls does the best looking guy in your college goes out with in a year? When you graduate and make your money, you can have as many girls as you want. I have a upper level white collar friend who changes girl friends every other day. Yes, every other day. I thought he was lying at lst, until I hung out with him for couple of months. He has a new girl every other day. No joke! So don't worry about chicks and looks now, just hit your books

      4. Being a Christian - you are not going to hell! Don't let satan deceive you. I don't want to lecture you with the bible, but you do know satan is the father of lies. He'll attack you with lies and deception.

      5. Sex and Fun - Can't be the devil's advocate here. Sex is best when it is with someone you love, not at a drunken party. also, don't let the porn films fool you. most girls get paid for what they do on the films. and trust me, at the drunken parties, sex is not great because your girl might just be too drunk and fall asleep on you. the best girl I found wasn't at parties I threw after I made my dough, it was at church. And we have been married for many many years happily.

      Don't be fooled!

  35. QUESTION:
    What should I do this summer?
    This is the summer before high school, and my two best friends are both either cottaging or at camp until the middle of August. I don't go back to school until the fourth of September, and I'm bored out of my mind. My other best friend of 14 years is on the other side of the city and it takes an hour to get there, and my other other best friend is in London for the olympics. Talk about this lone unicorn not having a life -_-

    My mom is a stay at home mom, but there's not a lot she can do in the summer because she has really bad asthma and the hot weather we have here in Canada bothers her a lot, my dad works all summer and my brother (he's 18) and he sleeps all day and plays video games all night.

    I don't want to go to the pool alone, and I already go to the gym every other day if not every day. I have already written a book, spent a full week painting, and it is also hard for me to do some things because I have asthma and knee injuries and my anxiety has been really bad lately and it's causing me to need 12 hours of sleep a night. -_-

    I don't know what to do, and seriously, I'm stalking people on Facebook, on Yahoo! Answers and watching Shrek right now. I try to get out for a walk every day (I live near a beach) but that doesn't take up a whole day. I go to the library and read, but I don't want to be reading and working out all summer, I want to do things. I made a bucket list, but everything requires a friend to do it with.

    I have no idea what to do, please help!

  36. QUESTION:
    Help with a Horror Movie?
    A couple of friends and I are making a Horror movie, and we don't know how to start. It's going to be called "Silhouette" and it's about a shadow that kills people. Not a ghost or a real person, just a shadow. Anyway, we're having a lot of trouble. First of all, we don't know where to film it, and we don't know how to start it out. Any ideas?

There are maybe 2 movies that have to do with shadows. Do I have to come up with something completely different never before seen?

    • ANSWER:
      Well i think you should statr the movie off with a scene like a party or something.Life goes on as normal school was getting boring but you stuck it out because you and your friends were graduting soon.You could'nt wait to graduate coz that's when you were going to get engaged to your girlfriend.Just before graduating your girlfriend who you have had a relationship with for a very long time decides she want's more in life and she dumps you so the engagement is off there fore after graduation you (or whoever you decide has the girlfriend) spiral out of control .You were so depressed about it you just had to get away so you had a lil time time your self and went back to the place that makes you feel good and at home ''The Country side''.you had a aunt you could stay with once up there you started to ponder on ''How could she djust leave you?'' you discuss it with your aunt and cousin and then your aunt tell's you and your cousin a story of her childhood.The story was about love between a doctor and your aunt's friends mum who sadly passed.Anyway she said that the docor loved her(the friends mum) so much but the police classed him as mentally unstable which he was'nt and only she could see the real him.The doctor was killed trying to find the love of his life and his body was to be burned in his house.After that the lady took her own life so she could be with him on the other side.After she finished Your aunt said some people say that the doctor's spirit still roams around looking for her coz even in death they could'nt be together.You and you cousin went to explore the nice country surroundings and you stumbled across this broken down burnt house you and your cousin thort nothng of it so as boys are you's went inside and explored.A few hours went by and you were about to leave to go home before dark falls.You went back to ur aunt's said your goodbyes and you asked your aunt who's house that was and she told you it was the doctors house from her story you and your cousin never told her you went inside and you left for home.Everything was normal the first 4 days and then thing's started to happen like ou would see things and things would move on their own.But things really got drastic when your ex girlfriend came over to see you.As you's were talking se could here something talking in her ear saying ''I've found you''.She thort nothing of it until she went home and was attacked by something she could'nt see it was hard for her to explain but she said she could see shadow's and no body is there.Since you've been gone you did'nt notice one of your friends had gotten with her the next day killing started happening to who ever would take her away.he visited his aunt in despiration and asked if she had a photo of the doctors lover and she did and she looked like his ex.so you started piecing the puzzle together and found out it was the doctor's spirit in the form of a shadow that was after her.

      omg i really like what i came up with hahahah
      i hope you get some idea's from this hahaha
      have fun movie making.

  37. QUESTION:
    How do you make friends as an adult?
    Until I left university making friends was so effortless its like I cant remember how I did it. I guess because I was around people I had something in common with and we instantly clicked.

    Now after graduation we are scattered about all over the country and are at least 3-4 hours apart. Not the kind of journey you can do regularly without tiring yourself out or going broke over the train fares. In the last year I can count on one hand the number of times I've hung out at someones place, gone to the cinema with friends or out for a drink or meal.

    I'm not saying I am a big party animal who wants to go out all the time but I really hate going home after work and sitting in night after night with no one to meet up with. I've tried making new friends but I don't really seem to be making any progress.

    I thought I'd make friends at work and although people are friendly they mostly have such long commutes that outside of work we are nowhere near each other. Making friends in my local town is hard as its a cold unfriendly place. My family have lived in the same house for more than 10 years and the neighbors don't really talk to each other.

    I tried joining clubs, or groups and I volunteer but the people I meet there aren't really my type. Beyond the activity, we have nothing in common. My idea of fun is going to see a film or hanging out at someones place watching DVDs, theirs is going to a posh restaurant and having a serious conversation. Plus I cant afford expensive restaurants.

    I've tried looking into where people like me tend to hang out in my area, bars, the library, cafes, but the problem is that I don't think there are a lot of people like me. I don't have a car so I can't get to other places easily. I was hoping to find local friends. Its been more than a year and I'm worried I'll never make any new friends.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there hun. I really feel for you, I too was in a similar situation 5 months ago. Following a serious car accident 5 years ago I was forced to return to my parents home. 5 months ago I took my first stey to independence and got my own place. That was a nerve-racking experience in itself, however I also moved to a completely new town where I knew no-one. In one respect this was nice because it gave me the opportunity to choose my new friends. The first thing I did was change my location on facebook and seek out people who lived in my town, I added them and eventually started talking to them on the chat thingy. Explaining my situation, I soon was asked to meet for a drink etc. Secondly, I mustered up the courage to introduce myself to the landlord of the local pub. I went in and asked where I could hire a van to move the bigger things in. Soon the 'locals' were suggesting various options etc and I left my number with the landlord to help me find a washing machine. I nipped in now and again and soon made friends there. Thirdly I chose an activity that I enjoyed, I started swimming at the adult swim and aquafit classes. After seeing the same people week after week I got chatting to some other females who have now been to mine and vice versa. It is very difficult as an adult, but I wish you all the best, just don't be deperate and 'befriend' anyone who you really wouldn't usually associate with. Just give it time. All the best, Joanna xx

    • ANSWER:
      First put yourself in a place where you can meet new people. Maybe this is work, a class or a work shop, You can also do volunteer work or meet people at church. You need to be the one to make the first move. It can be a little intimidating but that does not mean it is hard. Most people would be grateful if someone came and started a conversation with them.

      Step one: Find someone you would like to have a conversation with.
      Step two: Make eye contact.
      Step three: Smile.
      Step four: Walk toward the person
      Step five: Say “Hi, my name is Jane, What movie can you watch over and over again?"

      And YES it is just that EASY. The reason this works is the other person is gets engaged in answering the questions before anyone can start to feel awkward or self-conscious.

      If you do not like the favorite move questions you should try something topical about news or surroundings. You can also find a couple hundred conversation starters at http://www.gettoknowu.com/Top_Questions.php

      I hope this helps, Relax and have fun.

    I'm not saying I am a big party animal who wants to go out all the time but I really hate going home after work and sitting in night after night with no one to meet up with. I've tried making new friends but I don't really seem to be making any progress.

    I thought I'd make friends at work and although people are friendly they mostly have such long commutes that outside of work we are nowhere near each other. Making friends in my local town is hard as its a cold unfriendly place. My family have lived in the same house for more than 10 years and the neighbours don't really talk to each other.

    I tried joining clubs, or groups and I volunteer but the people I meet there aren't really my type. Beyond the activity, we have nothing in common. My idea of fun is going to see a film or hanging out at someones place watching DVDs, theirs is going to a posh restaurant and having a serious conversation. Plus I cant afford expensive restaurants.

    I've tried looking into where people like me tend to hang out in my area, bars, the library, cafes, but the problem is that I don't think there are a lot of people like me. I don't have a car so I can't get to other places easily. I was hoping to find local friends. Its been more than a year and I'm worried I'll never make any new friends
    I am thinking about saving for a car but I get the train to work (parking is no good and there is a lot of traffic) and am not sure if I can afford both.
    The problem with going for a drink after work is that many of these people have a 4-hour round commute (which I think is nuts personally) or need to get back for their kids.
    I wanted to rent but its more than half my salary for a 1-bed flat. I wanted a shared house but there aren't many in my area. There is no university near me so you don't get the kind of people who would live in shared houses.
    I do spend weekends with friends when I can but its a train journey of several hours and leaves me exhausted for the next week. I live with my parents so inviting people round is awkward plus I am really out of the way for most of them.
    I considered the gym but its really expensive where I live. I would never go enough to justify a huge subscription.

    I know it just sounds like I'm making excuses but I don't really know what else I can

    • ANSWER:
      Of course you will. We have many transitions in life and college is one of them. Then people go on to careers, get married and tend to bond with married people. Try going on Yahoo and other places and look for people with similar interests. Remember that one good friend is worth his weight in gold. Others are usually superficial. If you can meet just one person , chances are they have friends that may become yours too. Life is full of changes. Maybe you can connect with high school friends too. Reassess your good qualities and work on positivity and good self esteem. This can go a long way in having people like you. Work towards getting transportation, even if you just go outside of your town.Your goals for your education should be centered around a career and eventually moving out of your parents house.
