When do parents let you drive farther away from home?

Emily: Honestly, it’s just a matter of experience, and your parents will probably let you drive farther away the longer you’ve had your license. You can always try to speed up the process by getting them to trust you more.

Haley: When I first got my license, my parents would not let me drive far away at all. You definitely have to gain their trust before you can drive anywhere. Once you have their trust, they will let you drive farther away.

How do you balance social life and schoolwork?

Emily: Just take it as it comes. Sometimes you’re going to have to give up one thing for something else, and you have to be okay with that. All in all, you just got to roll with the punches but don’t kill yourself trying to have everything because that train leads to you staying up until 3:00 am crying.

Haley: Try to focus on your schoolwork during a study hall or during any free time you have and your social life can fall more outside of school. If you finish your work as soon as possible, you will be able to hang out with your friends as much as possible.

How do you break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend?

Emily: Just do it. Man up and deal with it.

Haley: Just be honest and do not be like “It’s not you, it’s me.”

How do you deal with someone who annoys you?

Emily: Get some space but try to avoid saying anything that you might regret.

Haley: Try to put distance between you and them. Slowly start to talk to them less and less until you are satisfied.

What do you do if you like someone?

Emily: Just go up and talk to them. Try to get to know them, and if the feeling does not seem to be mutual, just keep on moving.

Haley: At first, you should casually show a smile or say hi. Next, you should create small talk and try to continue into the conversation. After this, you will start to talk more and when you feel comfortable tell them how you feel.
