Have You Heard?

Oct 27, 2014

Recently, I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Associate Director for Outreach and Development Programming for CAPS and all-around nice guy Gary Glass. The topic: relationships. Relationships in general, with no particular person in mind. It was the first time I'd discussed the topic at length, ever. My conclusion? We should do this more often. So, here is a primer on the subject. More entries are on the way!

As I write this, it is 9:40am in the morning. In my long tenure of being awake for the past hour, I have already interacted with 8 people. My roommate. The dorm custodian. 2 refectory employees.  2 acquaintances across the quad. 2 close friends.

Had I not been writing this article, I doubt I would have given these interactions much thought.  I don’t think most Duke students would.  Maybe because it’s not trendy. Maybe because we claim not to have the time. Maybe because we’re scared of admitting how much we care.

That’s a shame.

Surely my morning would have been different, if not entirely unsatisfying, without these 8 people. Take that voice, coated in a rich southern twang, that warned me not to slip on the recently mopped Kilgo floors. That’s worth appreciating. Same can be said for the laughter shared with my close friend when she told me, in complete sincerity, that Nilla Wafers give her nightmares.

With temperatures dropping and students hunkered down together in classrooms, libraries and dorm rooms, the germs are starting to fly around campus.  Not surprisingly, there is an uptick in students looking for help from the Student Health Center, and demand for appointments is high.
