Thinking about buying lots of candy and lots of plastic easter eggs and hiding them all over the castle as a program.
I’m not sure if hiding places would be extremely simple or incredibly difficult (for both me and them).
Yay fundatory tag!
Our Hall Council did an egg hunt last year. I’m still finding those stupid things. It was lots of fun! If you make it difficult someone will have extra treats when they find them next October.
- Student: I'm not going to go to college because I don't want to go into debt.
- USA: YOU USELESS PIECE OF SHIT. YOU'RE GOING TO AMOUNT TO NOTHING YOU FUCKING SCUMBAG. YOU'RE THE REASON WHY MY TAXES ARE SO HIGH.
- Student: I'm just going to attend a small community college instead.
- USA: HAHAHA YOU WERE TOO STUPID TO GET INTO A GOOD UNIVERSITY. ENJOY YOUR MCDONALD'S DIPLOMA.
- Student: I attended a four year university and received a diploma in a field I am interested in. Now I am $50,000+ in debt.
- USA: YOU DUMBASS. WHY THE FUCK DID YOU GO TO COLLEGE WHEN YOU KNOW YOU COULDN'T AFFORD IT? YOU DIDN'T EVEN CHOOSE A USEFUL MAJOR EITHER. GOD PEOPLE LIKE YOU MAKE ME SICK.
- This is what I am dealing with! It is such bullshit all the things society puts a person through.
I really need to put a block on hunger games related stuff on my dash. I don’t have time to read it/get my hands on it until my thesis is done and I REALLY want to read it before I watch the movie/get spoiled.
Oh yeah, and being on duty all the fucking time doesn’t help
There I related it…ahahahaha
I wish I could be this lucky. They’re normally dicks about it for days then decide to stop being mad at me. Grow up, folks. G4u, though!
I figured that was it =). We don’t have a formal “alternate” list at my school but I’ll bet there’s a secret one passed amongst the LD team…
I’m actually not familiar with the concept of “alternate” RAs; it’s not a thing at my school, and someone just asked. Can anyone answer this question for us?
I’m guessing you were told you were an alternate? I actually have no idea. We don’t have alternate RAs at my school…but I feel like we should seeing as they’ve started to change over quite a bit. Hold on.
It’s been a while since I updated. Spring Break certainly makes the Res Halls out of sight and out of mind.
Happy Spring, everybody. Remember, you have a much more finite time until all those programs are due—and classes too.
Res Life is amazingly wonderful, no? I love and APPRECIATE all 200 of you more than words can describe.
Just like my residents, I find each and every one of you to be a unique and remarkable facet to our tumblr res life community.
News stories about the trial of his roommate made me stop and realize…Tyler Clementi lived on campus…he was somebody’s resident. Does thinking about that send a chill down anyone else’s spine?

The news story broke just after I became an RA. I wish I could tell you it does send a chill down my spine, but our department put a huge emphasis on this when it happened, so it has affected my res life experience from the beginning. Apparently, Clementi had contacted his RA and asked for a new roommate (the RA testified about a week ago).
I feel as though the RA did everything he could within his power, and I do not know what I would do—or be able to do in that situation, especially if the details were not brought to my attention.
Any other input from anyone would be welcome.
anon is obviously one of the residents you busted for being a stupid hoe.
Oh goodness! I hope not. This blog is supposed to be a secret for obvious reasons!
Let me clarify, here. Sorry if what I said got misconstrued.
If they managed to keep things secret and I didn’t notice things that would be fine. The problem is that they make little slip-ups that I am not allowed to ignore.
In fact, I have come pretty close to losing my job because I chose to ignore certain things that I did not think were a big deal.
Do I actually care what they do? Not at all. Do I have a choice in this matter? Not at all.
Especially when smoking weed out the window affects my residents with asthma because opening the window blows the odor into the hall.
Especially when their noise level is keeping people awake at night who have class in the morning.
Especially when drinking in the room means I have to send someone to the hospital.
You’re right. I’m not their mom. I wouldn’t want to be. The problem is I am still responsible for the well-being of my whole community, and the residents who decide to break the agreement the signed off on but don’t cover their tracks are a threat to that community, which means my ass is on the line if I don’t act up.
If my followers have something to add, I welcome it.
PS: If you’re sending this in reaction to an e-card I reblogged a couple days ago, please read the edit I have added. Again, sorry if I did not get my point across correctly. :)
But every time they secretly violate policy, like trying to sneakily hide their drinking, or covertly smoking a joint out the window, it’s like they’re challenging us. Like it seriously feels like an act of aggression.
I would use pictures like “come at me bro” or “challenge accepted” but those are way too benign to convey the message.
I think of it more as a cat deciding not bury its shit to assert its dominance over you…
I just feel like this Kingsley .gif every night I’m on duty:
I’ve noticed it before, but our lounge has what used to be a post office attached to it. We have a wall of old fashioned mailboxes attached to the women’s bathroom. :) Hope your night of duty is nice and quiet! So far I’ve only had one phone call.
That is so cool! I once saw a photograph of what our residence hall used to look like—at least the facade. It was TOTALLY different. Very spooky. There’s also two sets of steps that lead to nowhere on our campus because the doors were bricked off decades ago.
I know 100% that if I ever got a TARDIS I would spend the rest of my life going to my hometown and my University at various times throughout history just to see what it looked like and how it got to where it was.
Ever wonder how long RAs have really been around for, or when “dorms” turned into “residence halls”?
