I’m a junior and I’m infatuated with this senior girl. We are good friends and I think I have a real shot with her. Should I ask her out?

First, let me define the term senioritis for you because, as a junior, you may not fully comprehend it. Senioritis refers to the “affliction of students in their final year of high school or college, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance,” according to the dictionary that pops up after Googling a term. It is a common misconception that senioritis only has an effect on school work. In actuality, the condition often manifests itself in the senior’s ability to put effort into anything. So, if it’s an engaging, committed relationship that you’re hoping for, I would steer clear, especially since it’s the second semester.


My teacher and I just can’t get along. I think their rules are outdated and their grading system is totally wack. I want to be respectful but I really can’t stand their class. What should I do?

Suck it up and be respectful. Teachers have a really hard job and acting as if you know better than them won’t make it easier or put them in a better mood. If something comes up that really makes you upset, approach them after class. Try to make the best out of a bad situation and learn the material!
