Super Solver - "Listen Locker" Advice

Super Stressed! Tips?

Tips: Organization is key! Make sure you have a planner/checklist (example: you can just buy notebook paper and write out your classes and all your homework assignments on there) Or

you can unwind with calming yourself with music/hobby/interest

My friends are mad at me for something really stupid. What do I do?

Understand the conflict by retracing your steps of what you did. If it's an accident, just apologize first! Be truthful with your actions and take ownership of what you did.

I don't want to hang out with some of my friends. How do I tell them?

Slowly start to distance yourself from them and remember to be kind. Be prepared to discuss why you are being distant.

I like this boy. I don't know if he likes me back. How do I tell if he likes me?

Become friends first and if you already are, then continue that friendship and see where it goes.

My girlfriend is mad at me. I don't know why. Please tell me how to fix it!

Kindly ask your girlfriend, "what have I done to make you upset?" You may be pleasantly surprised!
