Obstacle Course

On one of the last days of RA training, Reslife set up an obstacle course in the HRC for us. We were divided into teams and our team decided to call ourselves Team Hope. FOr about an hour we did various activities such as skipping around the track, cycling, running up and down stairs, and running in the gym. All the events took about an hour.

After the obstacle course we all did a group yoga session in the HRC basement. It was a great way to relax and unwind after all the running of before. It was especially pleasing since it was the first time all year I had done physical activity of any kind besides dancing around my room and it was nice to finally be able to sit down and reflect on how out of shape I am. Our team ended up getting third place but, in our defense, one of the other teams had a Physical education major!

Team Hope!

Tired

Since I’ve been back for RA training, I’ve been working on my bulletin boards. I have one left to complete and I cannot think of any ideas for it! I keep brainstorming and brainstorming and have come up with nothing! Of course I would get to my last board and draw a blank!

Today for training we had to wake up by 8 and, knowing me, I had the bright idea to stay up all night until 2 AM to work on my bulletin boards. Needless to say I’m exhausted now and I had a nasty headache all day. :( But now that I’m almost done, I will be catching up on some much needed sleep! :)

The Return

Today I made the journey back to Butler. And after listening to the Lana Del Rey album, twice, I finally made it back! Needless to say, campus is extremely creepy and quiet right now. I have been desperately trying to find people to no success! The positive, the laundry room is all mine!! I’m definitely taking advantage of it before all the people start to pour in.

During the day when I had free time, I decided to rearrange my room. It took a while since all of the furniture is so heavy and I had so much stuff but I eventually got it the way I want. I also vacuumed my room for the second time this year so I think I’m turning a new leaf in my life for the better, being clean!

The mess that was my room before I got it organized.

RA Duty

So this year I’m going to be starting my first year of working with Residence Life as an RA and I’m really excited. I will be the RA of the International Unit which means that about half of my residents will be American and half will be from other countries. I’m really looking forward to seeing where everyone is from and learning about their countries.

I will be an RA in Resco which means that I’ll probably be living there all four years, which is great seeing as there are private bathrooms and air conditioning! I could live there forever! I move back in a month so I’m making sure to make the most of the rest of my summer! It has seemingly gone by so quickly.

My stomping ground for all four years!
