    Find a better WordPress theme. That one isn't very flattering.
    You can upload a new theme and test it out without ruining your existing theme.

    Are there any specific things that make it bad? Because i do not want a theme someone else made. If you tell me i could fix it myself

    It's look sort of "dated", like the borders, grayish colors, etc.
    The content looks more exciting than the site design.
    I'm not a graphic designer, so I probably shouldn't even say anything.

    To change stuff (CSS), first display a page on your browser, view the HTML source,
    and look for the "id" and "class" tags that surround the part you wish to change.
    Look at the various .css files in your theme's CSS folder ... find those "id" and "class"
    properties, and you'll see what the style properties are.

    Walking contradiction...
    I have gotten into the habit of not judging other designers/developers work, but this is my Microsoft Meandering time so I'm MEANDERING...

    Oh, almost forgot: spammers are gender-less parasites...

    Change the fonts and fill the empty spaces.

    You can get more reviews by asking reviews on this sites reviews and rating section.

    Best of luck !

    Hi, the best way to find a good look is to look at good examples. Do a Google search for Good Web Page Design, also take a look at coolhomepages.com. Another useful site is webpagesthatsuck.com

    Here are my suugestions:
    -Use a more interesting font.
    -The header image looks really blurry.
    -000webhost? really?
    -The big SPRING 2012 banner doesn't line up with anything... and on the Info page it overlaps the right sidebar.
    -Rename the info link to About
    -The Leave a Reply (comment form) is wwwaaaayyy ttoooo wwwiiiidddeeee
    -Too much boring gray makes it look old-fashioned.

    I wouldn't go as far as saying it sucks, but try some improvements, and maybe think about how you could fix the things I've brought up, and see how it looks then. It's a good start, but it's really quite bland otherwise. Sure, craiglist is bland too, but they did it on purpose obviously. However, you made effort to make it look nice but it still looks bland. What does this mean? It means you have a solid start but need to polish it up a little bit Nice job so far and good luck with your site!
