Ask Angel – My Not So Secret Crush

Angel answers the question…

There is a girl that I’ve started to talk to more often in class. I used to have a crush on her and I’ve stopped but recently I’ve been using any excuse to have any sort of conversation with her. Talking to her is the highlight of my day. I really like getting to know her and I love making her laugh-especially because she’s kind of shy. Yesterday I overheard her say something about me to her friends. I’m not exactly sure what it was, but she laughed and I think it’s bad. What if she thinks I like her again? I mean I don’t even know if she likes to talk to me or if I’m just some annoying dude in her class that she’s forced to tolerate. Advice?

Ask Angel – Big Mouth

Angel answers the question…

My sister and I don’t get along very well. Never have. We just bicker all the time and yell at each other. Yesterday, we got into a really big fight. Like screaming at each other big. She said somethings to me, I said somethings to her until finally I yelled that I can’t wait for her to go to university so I can finally be rid of her. It got really quiet, and then she left. She looked hurt and she hasn’t talked to me since. I do feel bad. I didn’t really mean it. I love my sister, despite our fighting. How do I fix this?

Ask Angel – Double Betrayal

Angel answers the question…

I saw something last week and I am still seething. My boyfriend and I have only been together for a couple of weeks. So, we’ve been spending a lot of time together, and my best friend is usually there too. Lately, she’s been making it pretty obvious that she’s crushing on him. Just little comments about how funny he is or how sweet he is. I’ve usually brushed them off. Except, I had some people over the other night and watched the two of them walk off together. I followed them, and I watched her kiss him on the cheek. He didn’t say anything about us being together or that he can’t, he just smiled. To be honest, I didn’t stay to see what happened next. I just left the room quietly and hung out with other people. It’s been a few days, and I don’t know what to do. I’m so mad at both of them and so hurt. What should I do?

Boyfriend or Predator?

Angel answers the question…

I’m in grade 9 and I am talking to an older guy in grade 12. Everyone says that the age gap is weird and that he is “preying” on me but it really doesn’t feel that way. I think he really cares about me and isn’t using me for my body or anything, my friends still think I should stop talking to him but I don’t really want to…how do I know for sure that he really likes me?

Ask Angel – Secret Boyfriend

My girlfriend doesn’t acknowledge me as her boyfriend at school, but she’s completely different when we are alone. I’ve tried to tell her how I feel but she says we’re just private not a secret, but it doesn’t feel like that. I think she’s ashamed of me, should I break up with her?  Continue reading Ask Angel – Secret Boyfriend

Ask Angel – My Unfair Teacher

Angel answers the question…

my teachers doesn’t like me and it’s affecting my grades. The teacher barely acknowledges me in class and is always in a bad mood when I try to speak/ask questions. My teacher will happily answer the same questions from a different student tho. I don’t know what to do and I think I deserve better marks for the work I am handing in, but I always get roughly the same grade no matter what. How do I get them to acknowledge my concerns without sounding like a brat? Continue reading Ask Angel – My Unfair Teacher

Ask Angel – The Final Online Stretch

Angel answers the question…

Online learning is way harder for me than in person, I can’t focus on school at home and miss all the important information. It makes me feel way dumber. Summatives might be happening online and I need advice on how to fix this before I drop the ball hard in the final stretch. How do you adapt to online learning? Is it a different mindset or just that I need to change the desk I sit at? There’s 24 tabs open at once and I don’t know where the music’s coming from. Continue reading Ask Angel – The Final Online Stretch

Ask Angel – Dad’s Not So Secret “Hobby”

Angel answers the question…

Let’s say you have a completely normal family (not that I’m assuming that your family isn’t normal of course but this is hypothetical.) In your very average family, your mom comes home by 3:30pm and your dad goes to work and comes back by 5pm. Everyday this is the same routine. Nothing out of the ordinary, right? Well, I thought the same thing until I found out the truth. A few days ago, my hockey practice ended early. Because my mom wasn’t coming home until later in the evening, I had to take the bus home. And when I came into my house – I was met by the worst surprise of my life. My father was sitting in the coach with another woman laughing their heads off. And then he kisses her. I was so stunned that I didn’t even get to see the woman’s face. I haven’t told him or my mom what I saw, but I managed to keep my interactions with him minimal… I have no idea what to do. Should I tell my younger brother? My mom? Should I confront my dad? Threaten him? I’m so lost. I’m imploding. Continue reading Ask Angel – Dad’s Not So Secret “Hobby”

Ask Angel – Overwhelmed by School

Angel answers the question…

It is incredibly normal to feel overwhelmed and as though you can’t get on top of things, but don’t let that discourage you. Keeping up with your school work can be very stressful and difficult, until you learn good tips and tricks to help you. While it may seem old school, try using a planner or schedule to write down all of the tasks you need to complete for the day, and another one for the week. Order your tasks by importance, and set a good amount of time aside for each task, so you are never caught off guard and find yourself going over your limit. Always be sure to schedule in time for relaxation, social breaks, and plenty of time to sleep, to make your schedule realistic and achievable. In your weekly calendar, leave a small chunk of time each day for overflowing work from the day before just in case you forget or run out of time.

Ask Angel – Improving Work Ethic

Angel answers the question…

This is a common question among students, and I don’t blame you for asking. As it’s getting closer and closer to the winter break, teachers are pushing more and more work onto students in order to accomplish everything. This can be difficult for students who don’t have a proper studying schedule or work ethic that meshes with their lifestyle.
