XOXO, Michael Brown

The readers submitted some questions about life, love and everything in between. I answered them as honest as I knew possible. I’m here to keep it real with you when no one else is and to answer with no judgment because I don’t know you! I’m just a college senior who enjoys giving his opinion. Here are some of the questions I got this week:

What do I like or dislike about Marshall?

I love how welcoming and diverse Marshall is. Marshall University is truly like a home away from home. I can’t imagine one can get the education that we’re getting here at this university anywhere else. I’ve never had a professor or met a staff member who didn’t want to help me succeed. I am so proud to be a son of Marshall University.

If you could travel anywhere where would you go and why?

This is a tough one to answer because there are so many places I would love to travel to. I just want to graduate and travel and experience new things and different cultures. If I had to pick only one place I would say Greece. It is the first place that comes to my mind and it looks absolutely beautiful.

Do you think sex on the first date is wrong?

You better get it how you live. Honestly, truly I don’t think anything is wrong with having sex on the first date. If the attraction is there and things are about to go down I don’t think you have to stop it. I’m a go-with-the-flow type of boy myself. Don’t let anyone tell you that doing this is wrong if it felt right when it was happening. Don’t beat yourself up for giving up your cookie.

What makes you think you should be answering questions and giving advice?

I’m not claiming to be a qualified professional nor am I saying that you have to take my advice. I am simply giving my opinion, hints why this is on the opinions page. I don’t believe I’m better or above anyone else. I will scam my way to the top like my friend JoAnne the Scammer from Instagram taught me, though, and then everyone will wish they would’ve taken my advice?

Do you have anything you wish you could redo in life? Why or why not?

No, I would do everything the same in life. I’m not saying I am perfect or that I’ve never done anything wrong. I just believe that everything I have done in life has happened for a reason and sometimes it’s just a lesson learned. Everyone makes mistakes, you just have to learn from them and keep pushing through.
