Welcome to TrèsSugar's new advice column, Conventional Wisdom, where your questions will be answered by people from all walks of life. If you're already a fan of Group Therapy and Sunday Confessional, then you may want common sense advice from someone who is going to tell it like it is. It might not be perfect, it might not come from an expert, but you'll get an angle you wouldn't get from someone with a PhD in psychology.
Submit your questions, and every Monday one will be answered by, oh, a librarian, a bike messenger, a barista, or a film professor. (You'll never know in advance!) Give it a shot, and you may walk away with exactly the advice you needed and weren't expecting. To submit your question contact me directly, leave the question as a comment in this post, or wait until next week when we can enable anonymous comments if you don't want your screen name in comments. Either way, I'll pick a question and get some unorthodox advice to you pronto!
