Carlos is the better Uncle you never had.
Does going to the gym for 20 minutes justify eating an entire pizza by yourself?
Yes? At least you are still doing exercise. Honestly, I never go to the gym and yet I still eat entire pizzas and whole bags of Tapatio Doritos all by myself. Trying is what really counts.
What do I do if I’m obsessed with the container store but whenever I’m at the mall with my friends I’m too embarrassed to ask to go?
Own that obsession! Containers are useful items that can be used for a variety of things, so don’t be ashamed! Real friends would understand.
How do I overcome being really homesick?
Homesickness is tough, especially during winter quarter after coming back from being inundated with friends and family. Know that you are not alone and that many people are also trying to find ways to combat homesickness. Talk to a friend about it and find fun things to do, like watch a movie or even have an arts and crafts night. Whenever I feel homesick, I call my friends, family and even Facetime with my dog, Chester. I would encourage that whatever you do, it’s something that is fun and enjoyable and you have someone to share that time with.
XOXO Uncle Carlos
