yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
PLEASE READ! Long distance relationships are not what they are portrayed to be. They are not as hard, emotionally draining, or as impossible as people assume. Right now, I am living 3 hours away from my boyfriend (who plays a varsity sport). We see each other once or twice a month. We are both happy, both with room to live our own lives but always being able to catch up at the end of the night. We still love each other, nobody has been unfaithful, and it is relatively easy. The time we spend together is always quality time, and I do not regret staying with him.If you love someone and think you they could be the person for you, go for it. The worst that could happen is that it doesn't work out and you part ways. It is entirely possible, do not give up just because of what you THINK might happen.
Pros of a long distance relationship...
1. The time you spend together is really exciting and precious
2. You have the freedom to be yourself and make friends on your own terms
3. You always have lots to talk about with your S/O because you're apart during the day
4. It tests whether the relationship is really worth it
5. Meeting their new friends means more friends for you!
6. Sex/physical intimacy is so much better when you've been waiting for it
7. It will show you how much your partner really values you
8. You don't need to pick between your friends and partner during the week
9. It helps keep you focused
I hope that this helped anyone that needed to hear it.

Salutations my dearest of comrades. It is on this fine evening in which I must express misfortune with my chances of acquiring females to be my lovely girlfriend. I have a set of criteria for my preferred partner:
- 95% average or higher
- Blonde hair, blue eyes, caucasian
-Protruding female attributes
-Anywhere between 4'11 and 5'5
-Wealthy (parents must make a minimum of $250,000, after tax, every year)
I strongly believe that this list of criteria is incredibly lenient and easy to find. Nonetheless, I cannot find a girlfriend! Why is this so complex? If it helps, I have 99% in health care. Please help me!
Is it possible to keep up a relationship when you and your significant other go to different universities and will be hours apart? My boyfriend and I are in grade 12 and have been together for a while in highschool, however, we want to go to completely different unis (5 Hours apart) Is the relationship worth keeping? Or should we just end it before uni to allow us to have that fresh new experience and meet new people? Anyone have any advice/experience with dating someone who ended up going to a different university? Share you stories! I'd love to hear them.

Hi! My name is Sarah Osifo and I live in Surrey British Columbia, however I was originally born in Warri
Nigeria. I'm currently entering my First year of University at Simon Fraser University to study Health
Sciences.. My passions include Film making,
reading, and listening to music. I recently discovered I enjoy painting, and creative writing as well. I was an active member of my
schools student council and girl’s leadership clubs. So if you have any questions on how to get involved in school, i have some great ideas :) This summer I worked as an intern at my church
where I got to plan and lead kids’ day camps, work with the less fortunate at the Whalley strip, and use
my creativity to improve the decor of our church. i'm really into Diy's so feel free to ask me about room or dorm decor for great prices! I'm also into hairstyling and I've been making my
own hair since I was 14. My final year of high-school I was given the honour to be my schools
valedictorian. It was a challenging task because I was involved in numerous programs at my school and
was working hard to maintain my grade point average. i have some great tips on time management and how to combat stress during your final year! Through that experience i learned the power of
persistence and positivity. Because to really make an impact you must fully believe in what you are
doing, and refuse to give up until you see results.
I will respond to questions as quickly as possible! and I'm a very open minded person so don"t be shy :)

The balance of spending quality time with your soulmate and being on top of your studies sounds challenging, but why not blend the two? Although at times my boyfriend can be distracting, he also can be a helpful sidekick.
Being in a long-term relationship in university, I have experienced both the positive and negative effects of being in a relationship on my studies. I am not going to lie, there have been times that I have rushed through assignments or skipped class in order to spend more time with my boyfriend. However, as long as you don’t forget about your classes completely and make sure your priorities are in check, dating doesn’t have to be a distraction. Relationships are only as distracting as you let them be and can have benefits. My boyfriend and I work off each other strengths and help each other during our struggles. He is someone I can bounce ideas off of, knowing I will get an honest answer. How I see it, having a significant other is just like having a best friend who is always there for you through the stresses of university. Sometimes distractions are worth the payoff.
What are your thoughts about dating in university? Join the discussion!
It is worth mentioning that I've been at a private school since grade 6 all the way to graduation. That school had about 100 students and none of us really talked to each other too much since every grade had few people. (each grade had like an average of 10-20 kids). The times that I've ever dated were online and mostly kept it online since the school was that small and I didn't really bother learning how to socialise. I am looking to start university in September, and dating is a concern to me because of basic human biology. Is it advisable to date in university if you are easily distracted and emotionally clingy?
The university that I plan to go to also has an ex-girlfriend of mine... So I'm not sure if it is a good idea to go there. I just don't want to go there to see her and be reminded. Or worse, see her with someone. I spoke to a friend about this and he told mt that I was overrating and I probably won't see her anyway. Is this worth considering though? If I saw her making out with a guy or something a day before my final exam, I would 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000% fail it because of the emotional distraction.
As I mentioned earlier, I'm not very social. If someone comes up to me and talks to me, I'll happily befriend them, but how often does that really happen? My guess is if I want friends, I'll have to join a club, find people with mutual hobbies and go from there, but maybe I'm wrong.
Hey guys, so I know that going to university is a big step in our lives and I thought that many people including myself would benefit from some tips on being social and making good friends in uni. Also, some experiences would be cool to hear! It sounds like a difficult thing to do because you're starting fresh, but is it really??
I was wondering if I could still be accepted in University if I take grade 11 college math. I'm not planning to take ANY math in grade 12 I was just wondering if they would still accept me. Also, will they still accept me if I apply for early acceptance?
Ps. I'm planning to go to Ryerson for Social work :)
