  • #SendSilencePacking is a moving display which focuses on the 1100 college students who commit suicide each year.

    On average 3 college students commit suicide each day. We hope this display will encourage help seeking behavior and an open dialogue on campus. It will be located in North Plaza from 9 am to 4 pm.

    This display can be triggering for some students but there will be counselors on site all day if you would like to reach out or speak with someone. (at North Plaza)

    Send Silence Packing was such a successful event and I’m so glad that our chapter could bring it to our campus. We had so many people express interest who had never heard of us before.

    "You see I loved hard once, but the love wasn’t returned 
    I found out the man I’d die for, he wasn’t even concerned 
    And time it turned, 
    He tried to burn me like a perm 
    Though my eyes saw the deception, My heart wouldn’t let me learn 
    From um, some, dumb woman, was I, 
    And everytime he’d lie, I would cry and inside I’d die. 
    My heart must have died a thousand deaths 
    Compared myself to Toni Braxton thought I’d never catch my breath 
    Nothing left, he stole the heart beating from my chest 
    I tried to call the cops, that type of thief you can’t arrest 
    Pain suppressed, will lead to cardiac arrest 
    Diamonds deserve diamonds, but he convinced me I was worth less
    when my peoples would protest, 
    I told them mind their business, cause my shit was complex 
    More than just the sex 
    I was blessed, but couldn’t feel it like when I was caressed 
    I’d spend nights clutching my breasts overwhelmed by God’s test 
    I was God’s best contemplating death with a Gillette 
    But no man is ever worth the paradise MANIFEST”

    "Manifest" - Fugees

    This song completely sums up my emotions with my ex towards the end of our relationship. Thank you to my friend, Jonathan, for showing me this.

    Jason Larkin : Eritrea

    Having fought with most of its neighbours, Eritrea has few friends. It’s 30 year war with Ethiopia finally gained the country its independence in 1992. Colonised by the Italians and British before, Eritrea hasn’t had its own sovereignty for over 100 years and since its last deadly skirmish with Ethiopia in 2000, the country has been trying to find its feet, rebuilding its much needed infrastructure and various state institutions. Offers of help from the West are turned away as the president Isaias Afwerki believes aid does more harm than good.

    The President’s view of aid reflects, in the extreme, a growing theory that aid to Africa can cause more problems than it solves. Only a handful of NGO’s are allowed to work there and their scope is extremely limited. The desire for self-reliance is based on more than a century of abuse from successive colonial masters. Afwerki admitted that living in Eritrea is a “struggle” and a “hardship” but claims that “charity does not work”.

    Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”

    i can never not reblog this

    T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”
