Anonymous asked: Rachel, i need your advice. How do you move on let go from your first love? We broke up a long time ago we started talking again last year every time we would make plans to hang out we wouldn't go through. he tell me major events in his life like how he got a job is doing well in school all that jazz. i notice we follow each other on every social media site like instagram, facebook, twitter. i still have one of his cousins as friends..i kind of wanna move on i still have pictures of us together
Anonymous asked: he still has a picture of me and him on his instagram. i don't know why it's so hard for me to let it go? no matter how much i move on talk to other guy's somehow i always think of him have you ever gone through this experience?
i definitely have — i think almost every girl has. but here’s the thing — moving on is solely up to you. you won’t move on unless you truly want to. it sounds like you don’t want to and neither does he. both of you are holding on to the mere fact that you two still share a bond — perhaps neither of you gave either other space to really move on, so that’s why you two are still attached. there needs to be boundaries. limit how often you two communicate. if you two are talking more than 2x a week, that’s too much. LOL.
if he’s your first love, there will always be that bond — but if neither of you have let go of the relationship, then neither of you will really move on. have some space between each other for awhile, just to give you a chance to breathe without him and experience life without him. that way you’ll be able to see life without him. that doesn’t mean ya’ll won’t be friends. it will just mean that you aren’t holding on to the romantic part of your relationship anymore and will learn to be FRIENDS if that’s what you two really want.
i’m friends with almost all of my exes except 2, but that took time. and i have learned to not talk to some of them too often, but literally only once in awhile just to catch up. there’s probably only one or two of them that i have a genuine friendship with where we are still very good friends and that won’t ever change for us.

mojitosatmidnight asked: Hey Rach!!! I've got exams coming up soon, and I'm panicking! It's for A-level Biology (I'm in the UK. So I think the equivalent's AP?). I'm doing it in one year instead of 2, and so far have been doing really badly..I need an A/A*. Help? Ty :) xxx
honestly .. take this with a grain of salt — it’s a long shot to get an A in your class if you already have been failing it. You will need to apply yourself and truly focus — this needs to be something you truly want for yourself.
i have done really bad in classes and have aced them at the end — so it is possible, but trust me, it takes A LOT. you’ll need to devote yourself and truly grasp the material.
that being said — meet with your teacher and see what you can do. figure out why you’re not understanding the material and figure out a study method that will help you learn it better. meet with a tutor or a classmate who IS doing well in the class if you have to. Study groups do wonders also — they have always helped me out because 2+ heads are better than one, so it helps to study with other people sometimes as well.
good luck!!! i have faith in you!! ;)
