Dear Ms. Madisonian

How do I tell if the person I have a crush on likes me back? I’ve liked him for a little while now, and we hang out at school but I just don’t know if he likes me. If you have any advice or tips on how I can tell I would really appreciate it.

Are there any ways to make memorization easier? As a senior one big thing everyone worries about is testing! I’m having some trouble studying for test in a few of my classes please help.

What is the function of a rubber duck? Okay this isn’t an important question but nevertheless we wizards need to know this crucial bit of information.

What should I torment my friend with next? I’m a big pranker and I love pulling gags on my friends. Any tricks? Thanks.


Miss Madisonian: 1. That first one is tough one, but here’s what I know. If this person is a good friend of yours maybe you’ve noticed they try to spend more time around you, or they go out of their way to talk to you. Next time you’re around them, try making an extremely lame joke, if they laugh, that’s a possible sign, or maybe they just have that type of humor.

(Examples of lame jokes)

What do you call a fake noodle… an impasta!

Why do the french eat snails… they don’t like fast food!

If all else fails ask your friends what they think about him liking you. You could also try talking to them and seeing how they act around you, perhaps they are a little awkward around you. A fun little trick you could try is making eye contact, if he quickly looks away or tries to pretend he was looking at something else that’s a good sign he’s crushing! Hope that helps.

2. For memorization, I recommend writing out your notes or facts; I’ve also found it’s easier to remember when I’m listening to music, as when I think of the song, I think about what I was reading or writing when I heard that song.

3. Ah yes the rubber duck, a rubber duck is a Muggle toy, shaped like a duck and used for recreation in a bathtub.

It just passed Halloween; I’m sure you can come up with a few good ideas if not here’s a website!
