Every week, we collect anonymous entries sent in using the link on our sidebar and post them all on Monday. We post anything as long as it doesn't contain personal attacks, hate speech, or express or insinuate that one is at risk for hurting themselves or someone else. Please read this for an explanation of this policy and seek help if your or a friend find yourself in that position. With those exceptions aside, please feel free to submit your thoughts and questions. :)
My second session kids arrived Wednesday and we've already talked about anti-gay bullying and slurs and why they're such an issue (because, DUH, everyone deserves respect and dignity and equal rights). Huzzah for awesome youngins and changing times!
I leave tomorrow for a four-day rock climbing (and back country camping) excursion that I'm co-leading.
That's pretty much the extent of my life right now.
Unfortunately, we don't have any anonymous posts this week. Keep writing in, readers! We need you!
In the mean time, I would recommend heading to your local 7/11 store to indulge in a free slurpee to help you cool off on this toasty July 11th.
Please remember that there are a number of resources available on campus and in the local community. These resources are available over summer, too! If you or a friend are experiencing thoughts or urges to harm yourself or somebody else, please reach out to the following resources: In an emergency, please don't hesitate to call CAPS at any time, including "after hours" at (919) 966-3820. Ask to speak to the advice nurse and tell them you are a Duke student. You may also call the Trevor Project, a national hotline specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and questioning youth (college students included). Their number is 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386).
