how r u holding up - How are you holding up? This is a way of asking if someone is OK when things are difficult for them- they might have some problems, etc.
whats going on - What's going on? This is the same as asking what is happening.

Add-drop refers to adding or dropping classes.
Start every sentence with a capital letter and end it with a punctuation mark — not a row of smileys.
Always capitalise 'I'.
Use proper English words — not texting abbreviations like u and ya. The correct word for both is 'you'.
