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. :)
So, it's spring break! Congrats on making it to this point in the semester. Be sure to b r e a t h e and enjoy yourself! Most people have left campus by now, unless you're like me and spending it catching up on and getting ahead on work.
It wasn't a good weekend for Duke Basketball, to say the least. The women lost their first game in the ACC Tournament for the first time in 18 years (2015ers, you weren't even born yet!). And the men, well, we all know what happened. BUT! All is not lost. See, Coach P, an outspoken LGBTQ Ally, won ACC Coach of the year. And, Duke still beat UNC by an average of over 7 points (across both teams, that is...#DWB4LYFE). AND better yet, GLBTSA and BDU are still tight as ever and only going to grow together at the leadership retreat in two weekends. Take that, Tobacco Road Rivalry!
Be sure to check the blog EVERYDAY over break because we've got content scheduled for you all.week.long. Also, we know that breaks aren't easy for everyone. So if that is you, know that the Center has regular hours all week, and that there are resources available to you (see the bottom of this post).
Now, for notes from OC:
What is going on in terms of action against amendment 1? Is there anything in the works to raise awareness and inform duke voters?
She's gonna be in chapel hill on march 21...someone find me, out me and go with me!
VERY cool! This was on TV this weekend during the NHL games.
Please remember that there are a number of resources available on campus and in the local community. These resources are available over breaks and throughout the school year. 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).
