Q&A: Relationships and Dating

Valentines day is coming up and yet again, I don’t have someone special to spend it with. All my friends have significant others and I feel kind of bummed out by this. What can I do during that weekend?

Q&A: Family

August 26, 2014
I am having trouble with my family. My dad and my mom fight all the time. Most often, I side with my mom with their arguments and understand her reasoning. Although I love my father, he is extremely stubborn and does not want to listen or change his ways. I really do no know how to help the situation.

Home or internship?

August 31, 2014
I’m torn between going home for the summer and staying here for work or a summer internship. I get homesick, and miss my family, but the thought of not having enough for my resume in the near future and lazing my days away at home and spending quality time with the ones I love most seems almost unheard of. What should I do? :(

Q&A: Alcohol

August 31, 2014
My friends and I went to a concert but someone in our group got carried away with substance use. It’s because we care about his safety that we told him he couldn’t come with us to future outings unless he learns to control himself. He got offended and thinks we’re punishing him, and it’s frustrating. What should we do?

Roommate challenges

August 24, 2014
It is well into the second semester, and as my roommate and I are becoming more comfortable with each other, I am starting to notice things about her that never bothered me before. To be honest, sometimes I become so irritated that it takes all my energy to not blow up at her. What should I do?

Exercise at Berkeley

August 23, 2014
Scared of the Freshman 15? Tired of eating out all time with your friends? Take them to the Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) located on 2301 Bancroft Way. It is an easy, $10 membership that lasts the entire semester. You get access to all the sports facilities, equipment, and classes. It is awesome!
