In case you’d missed it, this is my spiffy new blog space as of January 2018. To see questions and my answers from 2017, you’ll have to go to the old blog. You’ll need to be patient. The old blog is a little slow to load.
I’m sorry! Your grammar is indeed perfect, and I’m not sure how I read “on Newton” as anything other than the Newton campus. (If walls could blush, I’d be beet red right now!) I will look into the wilting of flowers on the Newton campus and provide an answer when I find one.
Ever grateful for your affection and attention!
It was a heckuva weekend to be a Gator, the Wall’s gotta say. Good luck in the tournaments! bit.ly/bc-gators
Sure… and cows, too, let’s not be sexist!
In any case, don’t throw it away!
My advice is to be direct, clear, and steer clear of making it a commentary on his personality or your relationship. Also, give him as much notice as possible so that he will be able to find an alternate roommate or roommates. These sorts of conversations can be awkward and uncomfortable, but trying to avoid them entirely or postpone them as long as possible will only make the experience worse.
You’re almost ready to make crabby patties, eager McBeaver!
Official word from facilities on the landscaping budget is that “the University has operating expenses upwards of 980 million dollars annually. The landscaping operating costs are perhaps the smallest yearly investment made into the buildings and properties portfolio but it has a great return on investment…” The Wall agrees about the returns. If I weren’t so committed to being vertical, I’d go lie on the lawn and let the blossoms fall on me.
Try a change of direction or tone: (Short, brunette, nice. AND AWESOME). Add a quirky detail that says what’s different about you from others of similar size, hair color, and tone. Say what kind of photos you like. One memorable detail goes a long way.
Whichever positions (one of which could be abstinence) that both partners agree–with a lot of open, honest communication–are most satisfying.
I’m so glad everything is going so well for you! I’m always impressed by how talented BC students are, so it is hardly a surprise! Now that you have achieved success at everything you try, I would encourage you to consider two things. First, how can you be a supportive friend and classmate? This might mean serving a cheerleader for your friends or offering to serve as a tutor for those who aren’t having as easy of a time at it. Second, think about whether you might want to challenge yourself more. Are you good at everything because you are avoiding things that seem scary or difficult? If so, maybe you could set yourself a goal of trying one thing that seems interesting but potentially challenging. It’s a great way to avoid boredom and making sure that you aren’t missing out by playing it safe.
Hm…. Did you mean “in” Newton? My Newton area colleagues haven’t noticed a flower-wilting phenomenon there. In most years, spring flowers follow a succession – early bulbs (crocus & snowdrops), then the yellow explosions of forsythia, then later bulbs (daffodils and other narcissus), then fruit trees like apples and cherries. This year, the late spring meant everything bloomed all at once. It was a feast for the eyes (and a trial for some noses) and all subsided all at once. If there’s a problem specific to Newton Street in Brighton, IDK.
Sorry for the misinformation. My helpers assure me there was no intent to deceive, and will make sure all future deliveries of cookies and coffee happen as promised.
I’m not sure how you made it to college without learning this critical stage in human development, but the mechanics are fairly simple. Find a toilet, sit, and wait. It will eventually happen. Then wipe. And wash your hands. If you used to do this regularly but are now having trouble, University Health Services can suggest some over-the-counter remedies.

Yes, this seems like it is bad. IAAWNAP, but I would argue both that you deserve more than this, and that if he is placing his use of substances over his relationships, it’s a red flag that he should consider seeking help about it. Why not contact Counseling Services (bit.ly/BC-counseling) and running your question by them?
The Wall would totally watch that movie.
I would advise you to be, as much and as often as you can, your authentic awesome self. It’s the sustainable way to live and whether that makes your boyfriend love you so much it drives him crazy is on him.
So frustrating! I suppose it doesn’t help to look at the bright side of having the maximum amount of time to study…? Best wishes for your remaining exam(s) and then summer!
There is no club at BC that covers your interest, although you can find a full list of BC Organizations here: bit.ly/BCOrgs. If you’re interested in the subject, it appears that Dr. Eric Weiskott is offering a course on Chaucer (ENG3393) this fall.
