Dear Torn Friend,
Of course you should tell your friend. If the roles were reversed, you would want her to tell you, right? You should try and see if you can find any other witnesses who saw it or know about it before you go to her, but you have to soon. If she finds out from someone else and finds out that you knew, she will be hurt that she was cheated on and hurt that you betrayed her. You can ask her not to use your name if she confronts him, but you can’t guarantee that it won’t come out. Regardless, it is your duty as a best friend to tell her even if it hurts her. Good luck!
I have a lot of free time this semester and it’s driving me crazy. I’ve become so lazy and I don’t know what to do with myself. All of my other friends have jobs or are on a sports team and I’m always by myself. Some days I don’t leave my bed because I’m watching “Gossip Girl” on Netflix on repeat. Everyone keeps telling me to join a club or get a job or something, but I can’t seem to get myself out of bed lately. I feel so unproductive and I need to break this habit. What should I do?
Dear Couch Potato,
It’s not enough to want change, you have to be proactive and make moves. Make a list of things you’re interested in and go do them. Try yoga or start going to the gym. Go to the department for your major and ask if there are any available jobs or volunteer opportunities. Take a class in something you’ve never tried before. On days you have a lot of free time, get into a routine of doing something proactive. Try and meet new people! Fordham is so close to the city, you have endless things to do. Anything that will get you excited to try something new, you just have to do it. If all of your attempts to get out there do not seem to work, maybe consider talking to someone in counseling and psychological services.
