Highlanders Anonymous: Yik yak and all that

Two words: Yik Yak. This is probably the most disgusting and upsetting app one could download.  I’m not going to say whether I’m a Greek or a “GDI” as they’re called, but I think this app is the worst thing that could happen to this university.  It’s nothing but Radford students bashing each other when in reality we should be bringing each other up.  All the talk about is how disgusting sororities are and how brothers of certain fraternities are gay is simply immature.  How do others feel about this? I understand you are one person but I want another perspective about this app. Continue reading Highlanders Anonymous: Yik yak and all that

Highlanders Anonymous: Keep away from bad roommates and STuDs

My roommate is horrible. That is no exaggeration. She’s an immature subtweeter who cares more about being with a guy than actually growing up and respecting herself. I’m pretty sure she has an STD but would rather have male attention instead of closing her legs for once. I so badly want to call her naïve parents and tell them everything their perfect little angel is doing. I’m about to lose my mind. Continue reading Highlanders Anonymous: Keep away from bad roommates and STuDs

Highlanders Anonymous: Romance! Also gay bars!

I’m a gay guy who has a boyfriend on campus. We’ve only been together for a few months. I feel like he doesn’t really care about me, but he does things that he can use to show he does. He just doesn’t say anything, or try nearly as hard as I do in our relationship. Am I being crazy?

Well, that depends. Continue reading Highlanders Anonymous: Romance! Also gay bars!

Highlanders Anonymous: In sickness and in health

My fiance cheated on me. I decided to forgive him (since we’ve been together for seven years), but I can’t get over it. I don’t want to leave him, but I’m going crazy jealous, and I’m not usually a jealous person. I feel like he and I are on the edge of breaking up, and I’m not sure I care (I’m 19 years old.) It’s been six months since then, and it’s still not getting better, despite couple’s counseling. Help!

You need to drop him, and not just because he cheated. Continue reading Highlanders Anonymous: In sickness and in health

Highlanders Anonymous: Men are confusing, and so are women

This guy I’m currently talking to is really confusing. He and I have been talking for about a month now, and he’s showing quite a bit of interest in me; however, I’m a little afraid he’s only doing it because I put out! What’s worse is that I really like him and could get really hurt if things progress. Help me?

Step one: calm your crazy.

This means you should quiet the voice in your head telling you this is too good to be true. It’s not. Sometimes you meet really nice guys who turn you on. Relationship progression isn’t set in stone; perhaps some guys will view you as being worthless than you are because you “put out,” but if he were like that, he would have probably stopped talking to you.

Highlanders Anonymous: Bad body odor, being in the closet and annoying roommates

I need advice on how to tell my roommate that he smells. How do I let this sensitive guy know he has some BO?

Body odor is a subject that needs to be approached very carefully. If you go about it in the wrong way, you could seriously alienate him and it likely won’t change anything. The fact that he’s a college-age guy makes it a little worse, since the average guy tends to develop a sense of hygiene at a much slower rate than women of the same age. Continue reading Highlanders Anonymous: Bad body odor, being in the closet and annoying roommates

Highlanders Anonymous: Nutella, cheaters and confusing playboys

I just found out my girlfriend of two years eats Nutella out of the jar. I’m seriously grossed out now, and it’s affecting our relationship! She’s otherwise a wonderful, loving person. What do I do to get past this?

That doesn’t sound too bad.

Does she have any other messy habits you wish she’d lose? If so, that’s something to be concerned about and you should talk about it. You’d be surprised at how irritating it can be when your partner is leaving dishes around. If this is the only thing she’s doing, then maybe you need to back up a bit and ask yourself if you’re being a control freak.

Highlanders Anonymous: Mixed martial arts, graphic design worries, and proposals

My boyfriend wants to do mixed martial arts and I’m very worried about it. I don’t want him to get hurt. We have had a few arguments about this. What should I do?

Your concerns are understandable. Mixed martial arts are not for the faint of heart. Fighters normally don’t leave a match without some sort of injury, even if it’s as minor as a busted lip. However, if this is something he really wants to do, all you can really do is be there for him while he’s training.

Highlanders Anonymous: Time management

Q:  “Do you have any tips on how to manage your time?”

A:  Every Radford University student, with a different agenda and responsibilities to uphold, has to come up with their own ways of managing their time.

Try to avoid ending up so stressed out like this person. Graphic by Steve Furtado.

To help manage your time, here are some tips that we at Whim recommend and can be applied to everyone, no matter your agenda. Continue reading Highlanders Anonymous: Time management
