Dear Pre-Med who Just Failed a Chemistry Exam,

My roommate and I never used to have any problems, but now that he has a girlfriend, I get sexiled almost every night. How do I ask him to take it down a notch, or at least go somewhere else?

Sexiled in Soto

Dear Sexiled,

Is your roommate in Chem 31X? What did he think of last week’s midterm? Did he say it was hard? You know, with the curve I’m sure I’ll get, like, at least a B or B+. I’d feel bad if I had studied, but I didn’t even study that hard, so… whatever.

Dear Pre-Med who Just Failed a Chemistry Exam,

Should I study abroad next quarter? I feel like I’ll never have this kind of opportunity to experience another culture again, but I also don’t want to spend a whole quarter away from my friends here at Stanford.

Sheltered in Serra

Dear Sheltered,

Sometimes I get so sick of Stanford, I just need to get out of here. My professor is unbelievable. That test was so unfair. We didn’t learn about anything that it covered. We should complain…we should report the professor. He’s so out of touch with his class.

Dear Pre-Med who Just Failed a Chemistry Exam,

I’m taking this literature class and I always do the reading, but I have a hard time thinking of things to say in section. My TA just assumes I didn’t do the reading and is very condescending.

Quiet in XOX

Dear Quiet,

Are you an English major? How’s that working out for you? I’m totally getting sick of all this Bio and Chem — I just want to read the classics. Shakespeare, Mark Twain, and uh…the other classics. That’s it, I’m going to be an English major.
