I love to give advice. You see, there are a lot of students and teachers alike who need advice, either asking whether they should take someone out on a date, or what to do when they have an awful grade. It’s my job to give unbiased, factual advice that usually helps them get through their problem. It’s a big job, but I’m up to it because I have a lot of experience in the emotional stress department. I’ll definitely be able to give good advice to people who need it. Below are the questions people ask me and my responses. I hope you find them enlightening and entertaining. Enjoy!
“What’s some advice for balancing our social and school lives?”-Marie
Given the choice between a social visit or doing homework, you should always put your academic goals ahead of your social ones. Your education will take you farther than trips to the mall. If you have a party to go to and it mixes with you getting your homework done, then you might do your homework first and then go to the party late. Get your homework done; because the teacher may not be forgiving if you tell them you couldn’t do your homework.
“How do you talk to a guy you like?” -Jocelyn
I think that you should actually be good friends with a boy before actually dating him, so just be friendly and nice. Don’t be fake. Make friends with him like you would a girl and if he likes you, then go with it if you still like him. Being friends first will actually make any relationship stronger. My parents are proof of that.
“How do you teach your cat not to bite?”- Ironman
Well, if your cat is biting people out of aggression or fear, the way to stop it would be to alleviate the problem. If there is another animal in the house, your cat might be biting things/people in order to show its dominance over it. If your cat is scared of the other animal, then it might be biting things/people in order to make it keep its distance. But if there is not another animal in the house, some cats bite people to be affectionate, but they bite too hard. It might be teething and is gnawing on things in order to make its teeth fall out faster. It also might just be that it is hungry. There are many different reasons, and I hope one of these explanations helps you.
“How do you keep from getting sore after a workout?”-Anonymous
Stretch before and after exercising and take a bath with Epsom salt once in awhile. these things will loosen your muscles so they don’t tear or stretch too far when you exercise and it will also cause less soreness after exercising. Work out regularly so that you body becomes used to the stress you put it under. The exercises that make you sore when you first start will seem like a piece of cake after a few weeks of repetition.
