My Life as an RA

Dum Dums… literally

Posted on: February 27, 2012

Hey bloggers,

So Friday night was an interesting night to say the least. Besides the fact that I had to sit downstairs at the duty desk until 2am, I got to see some interesting residents. I have no funny stories to tell today and I would like so say we had another successful weekend here in the building. NO DAMAGES!! WOOT WOOT!! =)

What I did get to see was a lot of drunk residents with a sweet tooth. I brought a bag of 250 dum dum lollipops to the desk with me and let me tell you, by the end of the night I barely had any left. I had residents grabbing them by the handfuls, and even some that would come downstairs just  to grab more and more. By the end of the night, the residents were getting pretty drunk and excited about these lollipops. On my last round or so I ended up having to pick up lots of lolis on the 4th floor because some residents decided to go on a loli throwing frenzy (note to self: next time limit the number of lolis =P)

ANYWAYS… my favorite resident of the night was one who came downstairs specifically to grab some lollipops. He decided that he wanted to get the mystery flavor, but feared what flavor he would get. I told him to close his eyes and pick, he did so, and let me tell you it was so funny! He closed his eyes and lightly caressed each lollipop until he found the perfect one. He opened the wrapper and it was a beige colored pop. With excitement he tried it and when we asked the flavor his answer was ” I honestly do not know…I think I smoke too much that my taste-buds are shot.” SO MUCH FOR THAT!!!

Speaking of funny quotes, another resident said his lollipop tasted like strawberries and vodka. HAHAH… the officer with me turns to me after the resident leaves and says the strawberry is the pop, the vodka, what he must be drinking. GOOD TIMES ON FRIDAY NIGHT!!!

To end this happy post, here is a picture of the penguin ice cream cake I made yesterday!

Hey Tammy! I think this post is hilarious, and the best part about it is that it is your own experiences. I like how you used the word “dum dum” as referring to the lollipops and the residents lol. It must have made the night better and that story about the high kid and the pop he couldn’t figure out the taste was classic. There is a couple grammar errors like an extra space in between words and there was one spot where I think you meant to say that but you put the (I believe it was in the story of the kid who smoked too much). Other than that keep it up you made this funny and interesting to read.

p.s. I love the spring break countdown you have going on the side of your page.

4 more days and it’s spring break! Thank you for the comments, I really appreciate it =D

I really like the title of your blog. It definitely fits! I enjoy reading your blogs with the ridiculous stories that come with becoming an RA. You have a job that can obviously be quite entertaining but I’m sure frustrating at times. Seems like you make the best of it! 🙂

Thank you so much! It can be stressful at times, but it is very fun!
