The student center, where our small group workshops take place has this freaky bulletin board with weird blurbs like, “don’t drink and drive” and then directly to the right, pictures and words like “flip flops” and “hair dryer.” To top it all off, there are bloody rags stapled to the corners. I think they were going for some kind of Red Cross theme, but after staring at this for days, I couldn’t stop thinking that in my life, not forgetting refers to the Holocaust. I borrowed a Sharpie and added “The Holocaust” to the board. Brian was tickled.
At the beginning of the week, I worried that I hugged a mentor for too long. I may have accidentally rubbed his back in the moment. Abbey reenacted the movement, which is now universally symbollic for: inappropriate, creepy stalker student, the mentor I was hugging, and Gili’s a freak.
