Will travel for education

Dear Riss:
I am currently a junior in high school. I've been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do with after graduating next year. I looked into a student exchange program recently and learned that I can go and live in a foreign country for one year after I graduate. I would go to high school there and learn a new culture and even live with a family. It is an experience that I would really like to have. The problem is my parents. They are totally against it and think that if I take a year off from college that I won't ever want to go. They are both dead set on my attending an ivy league school and going to law school. To tell you the honest truth those thing really aren't very important to me. This trip is. How can I help my parents to understand this?
- Grounded



In over my head!

Dear Riss:
I think I have bitten off a little more than I can chew. I take all honors level classes in school, plus I am involved with the Drama Club, Cross Country Team, and Student Government. Between homework, meetings, and practices, I have practically no free time. The thing is, all of these activities are really important to me, and it would be really hard for me if I had to give up one of them. What can I do to survive?
- Bogged Down



Why is my best friend ignoring me?

Dear Riss:
My best friend and I used to hang out together all the time. But now she has a new boyfriend and she seems to be with him constantly. If I ever call her to go to the movies or have dinner, I get turned down because she has other plans with him. I'm leaving for college soon and I know we won't be seeing much of one another anymore. I want to spend time with her before I go! What should I do?
- Feeling Stranded
