Q: My friend asked me what to do because she keeps getting “sexiled,” so I’m asking you, what should she do? –H.
Brandi: I personally believe people that “sexile” are not to be tolerated but I do have some advice.
You could write out your daily schedule and hang it in your room so she knows when you are gone. Block out the hours when you have class or work or club meetings. That way she can visibly see the adjustments she needs to make to her sex schedule.
Another method is to just not be sexiled. To paraphrase a friend, as long as you have a key, you can refuse sexile. You might see some body parts you were not expecting to see, but it would totally be worth it to put your foot down.
Also, to all other room-sharers who are getting some: do not sexile your roommates. They have access to your food, bed, and toothbrush.
Q: How do you make sure to fit in time to exercise? –O.
Brandi: In general, I personally just try to avoid working out at all costs.
But some people find exercise vital to their physical and emotional health and get real cranky when they don’t get the chance to sweat it out.
Time management is nearly impossible, but my main advice is to work in your workout in those weird little one or two hour gaps you have between classes. There is no law that says workouts have to happen at the beginning or end of the day. Do not be afraid of going to class post workout. It is literally like having midday P.E. in high school. Plus, almost no one is at Underground at one p.m. on a Monday, so you can sweat and grunt in peace.
