Doesn’t it seem like everyone around you has their life so much more figured out than you do? I know I’m supposed to be much more confident about everything I’m doing today and will do tomorrow, but I’m not. ’m not sure if I’ll have friends or not, I don’t know if I’ll get the best grades or not, I don’t know if I’ll join the student organizations I should or not. I am trying so hard to be in love with the “college experience” that I can’t let myself believe for even two seconds that I’m just a little lost and just a little scared. College for most of us means a new city with new people, on top of pursuing education or preparation at an exceptionally challenging level.

Suicide is a term riddled with a negative connotation, and yet it is commonplace in society today.The stigma of silence around suicide and the idea that it shouldn’t be talked about can be one of the biggest barriers in effectively preventing suicides and helping a struggling individual seek treatment.One way to combat this is to have less stigmatizing language when addressing suicide and is something that can be practiced in everyday life.Rather than saying someone “committed suicide,” implicating that they are criminal or committed a crime, it’s better to say outright that they “took their own life” or “died by suicide”.It’s also harmful to say things like “successful” or “unsuccessful” or “failed attempt” at suicide, or saying that somebody “finally succeeded in committing suicide.” You don’t want to assign blame or make it seem like suicide is a goal.
Happy Emperor Norton Day y’all.September 17 marks the day in 1859 that a San Franciscan named Joshua Norton declared himself emperor of the United States.The truly remarkable part of Norton’s story is not that he declared himself a sovereign entity, but that nearly the entirety of San Francisco went along with it.He was never allowed real political power, but he was respected to the point that he ate at fine dining establishments for free, always had a reserved place at plays and even got out of an arrest for insanity because the public outcry was so vociferous that the chief of police issued a formal apology; from then on, the police would apparently salute him on sight, likely relieved (I’m not joking) to have been granted an imperial pardon.Because he was short on money after running afoul of the Peruvian rice market, he created his own tender which was useable in the city, briefly declared himself Protector of Mexico, and when a dog that was associated with him (one of two dogs who were local celebrities for reasons unrelated to Norton) died, the writer of its eulogy was none other than Mark Twain, who also based the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn character the King on Norton.Upon Emperor Norton’s death, the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “Norton I, by the grace of God, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico, departed this life,” and, depending on the source, his funeral had at least 10,000 mourners.September 17 also marks the day before the second full week of class, when stress kicks into high gear.In order to make the best of this year, whether you’re nearly ready to graduate or are one of seemingly 15,000 freshmen, I recommend looking to Emperor Norton’s lessons on success.The first tip you should take from Norton is to take control.Just from taking a quick look at Facebook, one of the biggest stressors right now is our political climate; many of us are on a pendulum, swinging from disgust toward the Trump administration to a deep sense of exhaustion that comes from being too immersed in the political world for too long.According to Psychology Today’s unintentionally scathing blog post “How to Cope With Trump Anxiety” written by Steven Stosny, Ph.D, “anxiety and nervousness arise when we feel powerless.” The article further stresses the importance of empowering ourselves and focusing on what we can control.Emperor Norton took a stand in the name of common sense, and was also sick of political sparring; one of his royal decrees thus abolished the Democratic and Republican parties.

Nicholas Ralston was found not guilty of third-degree sexual assault, despite sending a text stating, “...I sexually assaulted [the victim] last night...”It’s common for editorials or campaigns speaking out against sexual assault to open with statistics.
