Re: shellyb

yes... it was a good talk.  She seems ready to leave the negative energy of her own household... and I think she'll be okay.  I'm not worried anymore.

Re: RPresta

this is a good reminder... the hate is everywhere.  So she will just have to find her way.

Re: Kabu

I feel a little better after we talked.  She has her head on straight.  :)

Re: FormerStudentIntern

I hope you're right... the news cycle may slow down, but that doesn't mean it's calm in the city.  Just that the news has moved on...

I fully concur with Shelly...

I hope lunch went well and was pleasant. Of course there is cause for concern. She may find that hate does live at her college, as you feared. But remember hate can live anywhere and everywhere; all types of hate. Reminding her that you will be available to help her deal with situations new to her regarding hate, or any other topic, will be reassuring to her. And if she has an aversion to negative energy, she will instinctively distance herself from it, I think. My best to her.

Re: chris

LOL... that's good advice.  I'll let you decide which part of your comment I'm talking about.

well, dopamine and serotonin are technically the only things that make you feel happy so for some good advice, tell her to buy some 5-htp capsules from a health store and take 2 a day.  5-htp gets converted to serotonin in the body and increases available levels of it.

I'm sorry im such a moron. Just tell her you're be there if she ever needs you for anything, that would probably help.

of course you will worry I feel worried for you. Love worries it seems.

Oh, okay...sorry.  

 

I'm assuming you already had lunch?  Hope it went well.  

Hopefully this whole ordeal will end soon.  Doesn't anyone realize it's not the 60's anymore?  It's so stupid.   I haven't been watching the coverage because it just make me sick.     It might be hard for your niece to avoid it all, but I hope she will be able to distance herself from all the negativity and concentrate on her school work. If she feels unsafe, or threatened, she can always go to school security.  The advice that I said earlier of establishing a realtionship with a professor fits in all this, as well.   She is going to miles away from her family.  She will need a mentor not only for her studies, but in case something would happen, she would have someone there on campus to turn to.  Of course, I'm sure she knows that you are just a phone call away.  And I'm sure you would be there in a heartbeat if she needed you there.  

 

btw...if I shake my head anymore at your brother and sister-in-law, my head is going to fall off.

Enjoy the lunch. It'll impress her.

I feel that things will blow over in the next few days. Then the news cycle will turn somewhere else.

Re: shellyb

i mean advice in terms of the subject of my post. Lol  I didn't have to deal with the threat of nazis on my campus.

I'm at work so here are a few off the top of my head.  Choose friends wisely.   Establish relationships with her professors.  Treat college like a job, but still have fun.  What advice was given to you?  Did it work?  Share it with your niece.

I think I would worry also.  How can one not.  I know that's no help to you.
