Reign: Oh man, I know how it feels when someone just doesn’t have any initiative or sense of responsibility and you’re being forced to work with them. The only way to get the message across is to tell them straight. Obviously that person is being a freeloader; don’t let them be a freeloader. Tell your groupmate that you’ve been doing everything and it’s high time for him/her to do shit. It’s the only way to make that person feel a bit guilty and realize what’s going on. It’s not like it’s anything personal, it’s just a school thing and of course you want a high grade (I’m pretty that’s what your groupmate wants too). If he/she hasn’t been doing much because he/she doesn’t know how to do the task, try to help your groupmate understand what is supposed to be done so both of you could work together. If you absolutely hate your groupmate, there’s isn’t much choice but to put up with them, is there?
Anna: One thing i learned in school is that people respond to incentives, not death threats. If you want to keep your group fully functional, do not get angry at them because they will hate your guts. So, tell them as diplomatically as possible. If they don't improve, then you take over their lives. Schedule meetings and drag their asses to it so they won't escape. Last resort would be to finish the project yourself because hey, this is your grade you are talking anout and you are not going to fail because of them. Just tell your teacher on how much they suck and he/she will understand.
"The person I love, loves someone else."
Anna: In Filipino, we have a term called "saklap". It's the feeling when you cut yourself and pour alcohol on the open wound. Anyways, I highly suggest you don't seduce the person when they're still in the relationship because that's bad. You have to respect that person's decision because it's their life and if they made a mistake, well, let them realize that on their own because people are hard headed when they're in love. Find a new crush if this person is taken because it only hurts more to stalk them and see all the pictures of them and their beau.
Reign: Well shit, this is hard. I feel like my heart was ripped out of my chest when I read that. Let’s just face it: we can’t really do anything about it. I mean I feel for you, I really do, but for now concentrate on other things. You gotta accept the reality and respect that person’s decision. If you want to be persistent in convincing him/her that you’re the right person he/she should be with, maybe now is not the best time to do that. Give it time; maybe in the end you’ll love someone else too.
Why is my mom so clingy?
Anna: Well, all I could say to this is that it is natural no matter how clingy she is. You did of course say in her for 9 months so I'm pretty sure she would get attached to you for the next 16-17 years. I guess the only solution is to talk to her. Ask her yourself. But be very gentle because from what I experienced, the clingy ones are the highly emotional ones
Reign: It’s because she’s your mother. It’s a mother’s instinct to be overprotective and clingy because when you think about it, you came out of her. I guess she’s being extra clingy now that you’re growing up; and this point in your life is crucial. Maybe she’s just not ready to let go of the little kid she once knew.
