Dear Guy who believes in life after love,

I want to take full advantage of my time here at Stanford and there are so many classes I want to take! I just submitted a petition to take 23 units next quarter, but my friends and advisor have all told me that I’m making a mistake. Are they right?

Sincerely,

Studious in Soto

Dear Studious,

Honestly, I really don’t think you’re strong enough, now. If you try to pursue that kind of courseload, after all is said and done, you’re going to be the lonely one.

Dear Guy who believes in life after love,

I missed the add/drop deadline but I really need to change my schedule. I’m afraid I’m going to be stuck with subpar grades marring my record for the next 4 years. Is there someone I can talk to in order to fix this?

Sincerely,

Late in Loro

Dear Late,

I don’t know what to say – what were they supposed to do, sit around and wait for you? They can’t do that. If you missed the deadline, there’s no turning back. No matter how hard you try, they won’t change the rules just for you.

Dear Guy who believes in life after love,

I tried to do a long-distance relationship with my high school girlfriend, but after dating for 3 years, we broke up last week. She’s been my best friend through some of the most important times in my life. I don’t know what to do. How do I cope?

Sincerely,

Heartbroken in Hammerskjold

Dear Heartbroken,

Well, shit, I don’t know. I wish I had some sort of pithy rhetorical piece of wisdom to drop on you, but I’m fresh out. It sounds like she’s really important to you — you should get back together with her, I guess.
