Heads or tails: Advice for life’s coin flips

Crushes, smoking and college newspapers

What should I do if I don’t feel ready for a serious relationship, but still want to have “fun” with them?

Heads: As long as you’re accurately conveying your intentions, there is nothing wrong with that. Ask if keeping things casual is okay, and if they say they’re okay with just having “fun,” remember to use your best judgment as to whether or not they’re being genuine.

Tails: Light a candle, put on some Lana Del Rey, hold them close and say you’ve never felt this way before. When they say they’re scared of how they feel, say that being brave is doing what scares you anyway and love is nothing if not brave. In the morning, disappear. Fun, no strings attached.

How do I deal with senioritis?

Heads: Finding motivation is a life skill. Remembering your “why” and tapping into the reasons you went to college and strove in classes is helpful. Also who doesn’t love ending on a high note?

Tails: Senioritis is a gift, not a curse. Skip the rest of your assignments and sleep with your professor for your grade. Leave a legacy.

I just found out my roommate has a crush on my boyfriend. What should I do?

Heads: Having a crush is not as much of an issue as them acting on it. If their behavior is making you or your boyfriend uncomfortable, then that is worth having a talk about. It is better to nip things in the bud than allow things to build up.

Tails: Threesome.

Is it bad to smoke weed every day even when it doesn’t get me high anymore?

Heads: Marijuana-use disorder can indicate addiction in extreme cases. It is something to look into, especially if you are becoming dependent to the point of withdrawal. Taking a tolerance break is also an option.

Tails: We all do things even though we can’t feel anymore, but you’ll miss it when it’s gone. Please come back to me, Jessica.

How do I get a college newspaper abolished? 

Heads: It would probably be a mistake to get rid of independent student journalism on your campus.

Tails: Write a column advocating hard drug use and unsafe sex. This will all crumble in no time.
