In today's paper, writer Laura Pezzini published a very interesting article about confessions. As the article states, a freshman Computer Engineering student named Justin Cellona created Cal Poly's edition of a Confessions page that he had seen on Facebook for UCSD. This page allows students to submit anonymous confessions about anything they might feel, have witnessed, or just want to get off their chest.
The great thing about this page is that as a community, Cal Poly students can like, comment, or just observe things that people post. The Likes and Comments show support and will likely boost the person's self-worth in many cases. Although, as expected, most of the posts are about serious issues, the great thing about it being anonymous is that students can submit anything--even funny posts.
For example, Confession #384: I hate how many farts I have to hold in around people in the dorms. Sometimes, I just really want to rip one. Or perhaps: Confession #346: I have only told this to my closest friends... but I really like Nickelback. I love singing along to their songs.
Whatever it is, this is the place to submit your worst nightmare or fear, your favourite memory that no one knows, or just how you feel about someone or something. The article from Mustang Daily tells more about the page and creator.
