Asking For a Friend

Carlos is the better Uncle you never had.


Q:

What’s the best pizza place in capitol hill?!


A:

Personally, I’m a big fan of Hot Mama’s because I prefer New York Style Pizza. My favorite is the sun-dried tomato and basil pizza—so delicious! You can also design your own pizza and they even offer vegan options! My favorite part about Hot Mama’s is that they deliver their tasty pizzas, so why not try a large one from bed?


Q:

Uncle Carlos, If I am allergic to dairy, yet I still eat it, is that considered self harm? Sincerely, a lactose-intolerant resident.


A:

Yes, love your body! I’m sure consuming dairy won’t be a pleasant experience for your body, so I recommend not doing that. Look out for substitutes that won’t hurt upset your body and ask for non-dairy options wherever you go. Is the taste really worth a deteriorating body? Again, love yourself and take care of your body.


Q:

So this guy who is an alum has been flirting with me a lot. We are both living independent lives and barely have enough time to talk, but he makes comments that make me think he could be interested in something more than friends. He also said he was thinking of asking me out. I can’t tell if I like him or if he is just really charming. What should I do?


A:

I would talk to that person about it to get a better understanding of the situation. You can never be sure until you confirm those things and have an actual conversation about it. I know it can feel weird or be a little awkward at first, but talking about it can really clear things up. Maybe once you have that conversation you will also get a better sense of whether or not you actually like him and even spend more time trying to talk more often. Doing this could really build more trust and make it more comfortable for you two to potentially move this relationship forward.


Q:

Carlos, what do I do if I think I am pregnant but I am not sure?


A:

Please visit your local health center to get tested! I am not a doctor and I cannot give you medical advice, but there are plenty of resources on and off campus that can help you with that. The Student Health Center located on the first floor of Bellarmine Hall would be a great place to start!

XOXO Uncle Carlos
