Hey Alexa, I'm a freshman in college but I haven't made many friends yet. Today my roommate asked if I wanted to go to a concert with her and her friend (who I met last week). Although I want to say yes because I want to make memories in college, there's a part of me that doesn't want to go because I get along with them, but there isn't really a friendship there (if you get what I mean). They swear a lot and aren't typically the kind of people I would hang out with in my free time. Please help!
No, I totally understand what you mean. It might take a while for you to find your niche. You’re in college, which offers such a large variety of people, and you don’t have to settle for friends you don’t feel comfortable around. In high school, you’re basically friends with most people just because you saw them 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. But until you find your group, don’t alienate yourself from a social life! I think you should go to the concert and try and have fun and bond with your roommate :) Then you can find friends you won’t have to censor yourself around!
Hey Alexa, I'm thinking about eating healthier and exercising. I'm not overweight, I'm healthy for my height and age. Anyway, an old friend of mine is getting into personal training and nutrition and they've lost A LOT of weight (over 60lbs). They're just starting to build up their portfolio and they're personal training for free. We don't go to the same school, but they're doing their personal fitness online to cater to more people. Should I go for it? I'm unsure about what I should do.
Sure, why not? You have nothing to lose and I’m sure since you two were once friends, they’d love to help you :)
