—–Email—– People do care… and you’re not the only one who has had that thought. I owe my life to my Duke friends and my therapist at Duke’s counseling center… —–Email—– I live in the next town over (Chapel Hill), and I care very much about how much you’re hurting. Please reach out to those around you to stay safe. You can find out about suicide intervention resources in our community here: http://www.trianglesuicideprevention.org/resources.htm . Be well.

The Hairpin - Ladies First I work in a co-working space. (For all of you who ask me what that is, I say, "a co-working space is a place where you pay a few hundred dollars a month to share an office space with people, and also, how are you such a genius that you have thus far managed to avoid reading the annoying publications in which you would have learned this annoying term?") In said co-working space, I share a small room with two other writers. We have recently taken to calling our little room The Suicide Suite, because off of it is a beautiful balcony on which we are prohibited from standing as it could easily just snap off the building, like a bad lego. A member of our co-working space's dog once toddled off this balcony, and as this dog is no longer with us—balcony not at fault here—there is talk of naming it after him.
