Ask Bunky!

Do you have questions about what classes you should take next year?  Are you looking for some Valentine’s Day advice? Lucky for you, The Herd welcomes back its former advice columnist, Bunky.  “Ask Bunky” is run by everyone’s favorite ram who wishes to grant the KHS student body with the best advice around.  Whether it be academic, extracurricular, or just life related, Bunky is ready to answer any questions you may have.  If you have a question for Bunky, you can email him at [email protected].  


“Dear Bunky,

I’m feeling down because my senior pals are all moving on soon. I want to show them that I care, but I’m not sure how. Can you help me?”

Dear Reminiscing Ram, 

This time of year is incredibly hard for those who aren’t seniors, as we are forced to watch them move on from the high school without us.  It is perfectly normal to feel down during this time, but you should also be happy for your senior friends who get the chance to begin their life after high school.  Though hard to admit, there is much more to life than KHS and our seniors have paid their time and deserve the chance to embark on their next journey. 

You can show support for your seniors through the upcoming season of graduation.  Be there to cheer them on as they cross the finish line to their 12 years of primary school.  You don’t have to get them a card full of money (though they would probably appreciate it if you did).  If you are looking for gift ideas a picture usually goes a long way, or something small they can use in their dorm room.  

Best of luck!



“Dear Bunky, 

I (she/her) have been together with my boo (he/him) since freshman year. At the prom afterparty, I went looking for the bathroom when I stumbled across him making out with my brother?! He didn’t see me, and I haven’t been able to bring it up. What should I do???”

Hello Shocked Sheep, 

For starters, I just would like to say, wow.  You have a lot going on! I have so, so many questions, but for now I will just stick to advice.  I think that the first thing you need to do is ask your boyfriend and your brother if they are happy together.  Ask if this is a relationship they want to pursue, because though it may be difficult, it is not fair to you or your boyfriend to continue to date while neither of you are happy.  If your boyfriend does want to leave you for your brother (again, wow) then you should act accordingly.  

If I were experiencing a situation like this, I would initially show support for my brother and former boyfriend.  However, it would all be an act.  I would need them to believe that I supported their relationship, so as it slowly began to crumble they would never suspect me.   Now I’m not telling you to meddle in the new happy couples relationship, but I am saying that if you wanted to, Tina Fey’s Mean Girls basically gives you a step by step guide on how to destroy high school romance. 

Best of luck,
