    Not to go off topic, but what if you have the opposite–a girl who doesn’t like to wear makeup. Will she have a hard time getting married?

    Thanks for everyone’s help. And lol happym19, it technically isn’t a seminary question. It’s a research question.

    Lol, popa. That could be a good idea for another novel, but this one has to take place nowadays. But I like that idea. Really up my alley with the sci-fi!

    You are welcome to my thread now

    Popa get out of my thread! lol

    See this is why I don’t like this whole seminary thing, but my character is in 12th grade. Grr. Okay no labels. She’s just a frum girl, average student, great at chumash and she’s going through a difficult time (can’t say what bec it’ll spoil everything). I was thinking of putting BJJ but I wanted some more I guess. Wish seminary didn’t have to exist!

    Thanks!

    pascha bchochma, thanks for offering to help =). I don’t need anything too detailed. Basically, classmates of my main character want to know which seminaries she’s applying to. They assume she’s going to get into a top one. My main character doesn’t care though. So think of it like your friends gushing over seminary when you don’t care at all. Also my main character’s friends would be gushing about where they’re applying to too.

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks, real israeli

    pascha bchochma, I appreciate it, but believe me when I tell you that I’m not writing a book about seminary. Now what I am writing about is a topic I know a lot about. So why write about something I don’t know about? In my perfect world, seminary would not exist, but seeing that I want to write an authentic novel, I gotta deal with reality. So I appreciate any help. And just so you know, many writers write about topics they know nothing about. That’s what research is for. Not every mystery writer knows police protocol. Research.

    Thanks.

    Your Rogue sounds awesome. Yeah, everyone hates Jean because she’s so perfect. My Jean would be dorky and much stronger and not so perfect 😛

    You know, I always wondered why Jean was never able to lift Magneto or Juggernaut’s helmets. That’s a HUGE plot hole. When I write my superheroes, I try not to give ’em any limitations. So assuming Jean could lift helmets using her telekinesis, she’d lift Rogue’s helmet and hurl her back before Rogue could touch her skin =)

    I win 😛

    crazybrit, plagiarism is against the law! :P. If someone copied and pasted my novels, I’d hunt them down with two pitchforks lol.

    Wun Uv Meny, uh uh! Poor Rogue can’t even have human contact. And being stuck with other people’s memories would suck so bad! Sometimes I can’t even stand my own memories lol. And the powers don’t even last. But yeah, if not for the human contact thing, Rogue’s power would be cool, but telepathy??? ohhh yeah.

    R.T: That would be true, but just like one has the ability to control when she walks through walls, she also has the ability to choose when to allow herself to fall through the floor. As long as she know how to control her powers.

    I don’t use FB, but I don’t see what’s wrong with an engaged couple being FB friends. They should do what they feel most comfortable with, but at the same time have to understand that problems could arise, so they should be cautious.

    IMO, learning how to fold napkins is ridiculous. Learning to cook and sew is okay, but I wouldn’t have wanted to learn any of that in HS. I learned those things from my mother and grandmother. When I was in HS, I was glad to learn Chumash and Navi, math and history and science. Why waste time and money on a class where the girls would skip? When I was in HS, I didn’t care about cooking or baking or taking classes to help make me a good wife and mother. But maybe that was just me. Maybe those classes should be electives.

    PinkOcean88, I don’t want to be offensive, so if I come off that way, I apologize. If you feel that all the guys you’ve dated are not up to par, is it possible that you’re dating the wrong “type” of guys? If all the guys you’ve gone out with are the way you described in your OP, maybe you should try to date other types of men.

    I don’t think a girl should ever lower her standards, but maybe yours is too high? Date the guys you want to date. From your post it sounds as if you’re forced to date these guys. I can be wrong, though. Maybe I misunderstood your post. But please don’t blame the guys (even if, yes, they aren’t as good as girls). You need to go find the guys you want.

    It depends. If my boss paid me really well, but didn’t appreciate me, I could live with that. So I don’t get praised, or thanked, it’s not a big deal. But if he paid me well and treated me like dirt, I would not work there. I don’t think any job is worth the money if your boss treats you like dirt. It affects you very deeply and it would ruin your day, make you crabby to your family. But like others said, you gotta pay the bills, so it really is a tough decision. I hope no one has to go through such a thing.

    I really don’t like singling out only one person’s poem out of everyone else’s, but, blabla, your poem stood out to me because I could relate. I had a difficult time in high school, and I too dreaded waking up every morning. I also referred to HS as hell. I was cleaning out my basement a few months ago and came across my notes. I couldn’t believe some of the stuff I wrote, how I felt about school and the teachers and everything. I hope you hang in there because life does get better after HS. I’m sure people have told you this many times, and it’s hard to imagine that life could get better, but please have faith. When you’re out of HS and are able to make your own decisions, try to choose the path that you feel is best for you.

    I hope my words gave you some comfort. I wish you lots of luck and know that we all care about you. Keep posting in this thread because it’s a great way to release your feelings. Sending some virtual hugs your way =)

    I didn’t post to get recognition or anything. I was thinking about this for a while. I don’t really appreciate threads where members single out other members. With a group this big, there is sure to be many people left out, and people could get hurt.

    smartcookie, no I didn’t, but I did see a few posters say that their names weren’t mentioned so I decided to finally open my big mouth. Hope I didn’t offend you or anyone.

    Hi, coffee addict and everyone else =). I don’t have time to post as often as I did in the past, unfortunately, but I do try to post whenever I can.

    I’m not going to argue here, but not all men know all the halachos very well. Since tznius is a woman’s mitzvah, I believe a girl needs to be taught what’s appropriate and not have to constantly be told by her father, which can make her feel uncomfortable. Okay halacha dictates that the father needs to enforce the halacha, but imo, it would be best for him to tell his wife to tell the daughter. I personally don’t have a problem in this area, but I would not appreciate it if my father told me how to dress.

    I think when a girl reaches a certain age it’s not a good idea for the father to tell her how to dress because it would make the girl feel very uncomfortable, she might feel that she lost her father’s respect, and that may cause her to lose respect in herself, therefore her clothes become less respectful as well. I think the best way to get a girl to dress appropriate is by leading by example. Mothers, aunts, teachers, and all the other women that the girls respect need to show their girls how one can look good while being dressed appropriately. And if a girl is dressed in an immodest manner she should be told in the most respectful way how she should dress. Not by saying, “how can a Yiddishe maidel dress this way” or “your family should be ashamed of you”. Rather, show her how beautiful being modest can be.

    I agree with Cinderella.

    While threads like this can be really nice and make people feel important and liked, it can also have a downside because there will always be someone who will feel bad because he or she was left out. That’s why I don’t like to single anyone out. Every member here is an asset to the CR.

    soliek, exactly! I couldn’t have said it better myself! I have so many really great ideas for frum novels, but I know that editors won’t even touch it once they find out the actual plot. There are so many real, authentic, believable stories to tell that I think will entertain so many frum readers, but publishers just won’t allow it. I think if I ever do want to publish a frum novel, it would have to be through self-publishing. Have you ever thought of doing that? I think it would be great if you wrote a REAL frum novel!

    Thanks so much for apologizing and not getting mad at me =).

    “If you are screaming at them L’shem Shomayim, then there is nothing wrong.”

    Maybe you’re right that there is nothing “wrong”, but I think speaking in a soft, respectful way is better than screaming. And has a greater effect.

    And I completely agree with MP’s post. Middos rise above all.

    I agree with soilek, but I’m not going to tell you to read non-Jewish books if you only want to read Jewish books. There are some decent frum novels, though. I can’t think of any right now, sorry. I’ll come back if I do.
