“Kuestions for Kaelyn” Where you ask, and I hopefully answer
By: Kaelyn Morrow
Concerned Student asked, “How do I deal with bullying at school?”
Although we’d all like to believe that our school is free from the grips of the popular high school trope, there is still a presence of bullies, however small it may be. I think it’s important to realize that you are not the one at fault in the situation nor are you inherently less than. People bully because they want to show off to their friends or have an insecurity about what they’re targeting you for. I have been bullied, too, and it’s important to understand that what they say has no weight on your true personhood. It’s also important to report what has happened (or is happening) to the proper authority figures. It’s okay to ask for help. You deserve to feel safe and happy at school, and there are people dedicated to helping make sure that happens.
Rordon Gamsey asked, “How do I manage everything I need to do in and outside of school?”
I find it helpful to do that thing that worms do when they’re cut in half and then can continue living on as two separate entities. Multitasking is a lot easier when there are two of you.
Fig Newton asked, “What is the most important advice you could give to freshmen?”
Walk on the right side of the hall and make sure to pick your classes for the coming years based on what you want to do, not who will take it with you. You are your only constant in life.
The Hash Slinging Slasher asked, “Is cereal soup”
It’s not not soup.
