"Dear Annie, Okay, so I caught my boyfriend cheating on me the other day and we have been dating for over a year. Now I find out that the OTHER girl is PREGNANT!! Now he’s begging for me back, what do I do?" -Please help, Confused. Can I beat this guy up? A n y w a y s , what you need to take into consideration when asking yourself this question is that he may do this again. Not the get-some-chick-pregnant thing, but the cheating. In a relationship, you need trust, without it, your relationship will fail. Also another thing you must keep in mind is the baby. If the girl chooses to keep it, it’s going to be in your boyfriend’s life, meaning yours too. You will be a teenager dealing with a baby and trying to fit it into your hectic schedules. You will also be dealing with the mother of the baby; keep in mind your age and your responsibilities. It may just be easier to move on and forget the guy who hurt you. Who would want a cheating, lying, and deceitful boyfriend to drag them down? -Annie. "Dear Annie, With it being the new school year, I’m having problems waking up in the mornings and completing my homework. I’m not used to this routine. What should I do?" -Please help, Newbie. Here it is- the back to school confusion. What you need to do is make a list of important school tasks that need to get done. Order them in what’s due first. After school, use the library if you must and start marking down the list. When you’ve completed the amount of work you need to do, continue with other projects until you aren’t able to anymore. Don’t pull all-nighters unless necessary and go to bed early until you’ve become comfortable with the time you wake up. This should really make a difference. -Annie. "Dear Annie, I’m new to this school and not only do I hate my boring classes, but I don’t know anyone! I’ve tried talking to new people, but it never works. How can I meet new people?" -Please help, Mr. Lonely. I can see how this would be a pain but this is actually an easier problem to solve. It’s a two in one answer. Think about it, if you’re in boring classes and they’re electives, change them! Try out for some sports; they’ll put you in athletics where you’ll meet people who enjoy the same sport you do! Sports aren’t your thing? Then try art, band, or even dance. There is so much to choose from with new people in each class. Have fun and be yourself, just talk! -Annie.
