Yesterday, during RA training, us RAs volunteered at Gleaners Food Bank. It was so nice for all of us to come together and work toward a good cause. When we first arrived we watched a video about the work we would be doing and the impact we will be making in the community. After that we broke off into groups to work on a different project. Some people went to the meat packing section in the freezer and some went to sort the food. My group was assigned to placing the food on the counter to be sorted.
In total we all helped produce a total of 8,600 pounds of food for needy families and children. It felt good that I helped contribute to that total and hopefully we’ll be able to return in the future. All this week during training we have been emphasizing on charity and giving back to the community, which I think is a very good trait to have as a person and being a contributing member of society.
Our group during work!

Last week I just happened to be walking on the mall when I saw blogger Katie at her sorority’s philanthropy event. It was “Pie A Pi Phi.” If you donated money to the cause they were raising for, you were able to pie one of the sorority members. Normally I am opposed to wasting such good food but it was for charity. I, unfortunately, did not have any cash on hand but I gave my moral support to the cause.
Even Blue 2 and Blue 3 participated in the festivities by getting pied and licking whipped cream off of people’s faces! Let’s just say that those dogs are out of control. Even VP for Student Affairs LJ (Levester Johnson) got involved! To see more about it, you can check out Katie’s post.
So just in case if you were wondering, the title of this post means “Job Interview” in Spanish. The reason it’s in Spanish is because my group was assigned to do a skit of a job interview in Spanish class. We’re supposed to dress up for it and bring props and a powerpoint so I’m definitely whipping out all my good clothes!
So me and the other two members of my group met in the library today to work on it and I think we’re in good shape for tomorrow. We have two skits, one where I’m the boss interviewing for a job with the UN and in the other one I am applying to work for the State Department. It’s very humorous and hopefully we do a good job.
Today in line at Starbucks, I saw fellow blogger Steph! I told her about how I’ve never tried any of the iced drinks and she recommended me quite a few selections but I ended up getting the iced green tea. She also told me that maybe I should get a venti (large) size instead of tall (small) but I just got a small just to try it out. I must say that I should’ve gone with a venti because it was so good! I finished it before I got to my dorm! I’ll take your advice next time Steph!!
It’s so warm out today but I’m still saving my shorts until Friday! It better still be warm then or I will be one unhappy camper!
I saw this cool video online about Butler University Dance Marathon. It’s definitely worth seeing. Students sign up to dance for 12 hours straight all to raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital. I’m definitely getting involved with it next year!
