“Dude, last night I totally blacked out and just -shhhwoop- shaved off my hair.”
“You did it yourself?!”
“Yep. Totally buzzed totally buzzed.”
“A lot of statistics are actually true… I mean, I have a LOT of Irish friends who are just so hot-tempered.”
The idea behind this project is publicizing the fact that everyone needs some kind of support in their lives, and it’s perfectly okay to ask for it. There are many, many options, but these few felt the most salient at this point in time.
This is an independent project done with support by I AM: Improving Attitudes about Mental Health, Bucknell’s mental health awareness student group.
The Bucknell Take What You Need project is also on Twitter (@TakeWhatUNeedBU), and if you tweet things, use the #takewhatyouneed tag!

You’re vanilla, sweetheart. Do more research before you write a column like that so you do the people who practice on this campus justice.
Or at least a letter to all of my peers about their manners in a food service capacity and how they SUCK.
Quite fucking expecting everything you want to be handed to you promptly. I’m sick of the snide comments to friends, the frustrated sighs, the bitching when things take a little while in the Bison. The people who are making our food are people. Not machines. Would it kill you to say thanks every once in a while, or understand that going at rush hour means you might have to wait 5 more minutes for your food? No. Cut that shit out.
I know this firsthand, too. When I was their peer, students were nice as can be to me. When I was taking a year off and working as a waitress and waiting on my peers, they were rude as shit. Like, “who the fuck do you think you are, saying hi to me” rude as shit. Now that I’m their peer again, some of those same people are “oh! hi! how are you!! I’ve missed you! Where were you?!” No. Be kind to the people you meet in a service capacity. When you work with us, we work with you.
