So rush is finally over, which makes me so happy. This is consistently just the most self-serious and arduous process filled with stress over whether you said goodbye to every person at Trivia Night after Skiing in Paris or something. I would also imagine that not getting a bid anywhere is kind of a frustrating blow to one's confidence that nobody who is taking more than zero classes at Duke needs. But whatever! I am clearly a jaded, introverted 80 year old that will go back to watching 60 Minutes (Andy Rooney *swoon*) while eating Butter Pecan ice cream and sitting with All The Cats Ever.
Anyhow! A project that we're working on for The Center/BDU is to get albums of events posted on our Facebook pages/websites. We want to make sure that there are only photos of people who are comfortable being pictured at LGBT events, though, so we're having people sign off on a release of sorts. Send me a quick email at email@example.com if you're okay with photos of you going up and I'll add you to the list :)
Aaaand don't forget that today (from 3-4) women-identified students are invited to The Center to watch the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Some inner turmoil...
I've been out as bi since April of my junior year in high school. I am now a freshman in college. Yet, I have only talked to my mom twice about this (and hardly at all either time) and not at all to my dad. all my best high school friends know and a few of my new college friends. Is this really "out"?
After I first came out I felt immensely relieved, as if a weight had been lifted off of me. But now, I more often doubt myself. I think, "i haven't been into a girl recently. maybe I just THOUGHT I was bi" and then two days later its "wow that girl... i just wanna...". So I'm confused. I wonder if this is normal for people who identify as bi. Do you really feel "bi" or do sometimes you like women and sometimes you like men?
I think I never feel "bi". I don't know what that it is. I just am attracted to men one minute and women the next.
I think I should go to women loving women dinner but im scared and i keep missing it.
What do you think about this? I'm now boycotting Chick-Fil-A and I'm thinking we should make this (link) happen at Duke.
