My Life as an RA

Archive for the ‘Helpful People’ Category

HI ALL!!

It’s monday!! I hope you all had a great weekend!

My weekend was pretty enjoyable, but when I got back to school, I found out that we might be getting a charge. This is a huge deal because we have gone charge free all semester!

The cause of the charge: Beer spilt all over the elevator =(

Poor Erick, he had so come in to mop the elevator. No one had the keys for the closet where the mop was in, so Erick was called to come in at around midnight.

Oh well…Can’t be perfect always.

Have a great week everyone!!

Hey all!!

So by now you all know that I am an RA off campus. Well last night I decided to come to campus because I needed to get some shots of all the RA’s for superlatives that we are doing.

As soon as I get to campus, I see some officers and go over to talk to them. They were rushing to their car becasue there was a fire alarm. I hopped right in with them and took a ride over. When we got there, not even half of the RA staff was around to do rounds of the building…I am so glad I was there to help.

What I thought was funny was the officer in the car in front of us was speeding over to the building, and they had already announced over the radio that there was no actual fire.

If you guys could see that man run out of a car you would laugh. He had the silliest waddle run I HAD EVER SEEN!!

It kind of looked something like this. Except he had a lot of clothes on and was shorter =) Very entertaining.

Anyways.. after the round was done, I went around to all the buildings and filmed as many RA’s as possible, and I ended up getting back to my apartment at around 1AM.

  • What I miss about campus: seeing so many faces
  • What I do not miss about campus: being sucked in and staying up late…and going to fire alarms (we have plenty)

THATS ALL I GOT TODAY!!

HAPPY FRIDAY…ENJOY THE WEEKEND!!

I do not even know where to begin with this blog. I absolutely love food, and I love cooking it. One of my favorite things about living in an apartment is being able to be creative and cook. One of the ISO’s called me the floor chef yesterday because any time you put something in the pan the whole hallway smells wonderfully.

Unfortunately there are mishaps sometimes and we end up with fire alarms. My roommate caused one a couple of months back because she left the pan on the heat too long. She put butter on it and our apartment door was open, so the smoke went to the hallway and the rest was history.

Today I wanted to direct everyone to a blog I am currently following. She posts some really cool recipes and tips as well!! This is helpful for the college student trying to get by, or to people who are trying to learn to cook! =) Illustrated Bites

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!

look for my throwback thursday post tomorrow =)

GOOD MORNING!!

It is Monday and that means the start of a new week. Time to forget about this past weekend and think of a happy new week. Spring weekend if officially OVER!!

I must say though it was fun and I got a new trucker hat, (pic to follow in the bottom). On Saturday, we had TYGA come to our school for a concert. Since the doors opened at 6pm, you can already imagine how drunk these people got, not to mention how early!

The night started off great but once the concert was over, it was hectic. Around 11pm people started rolling in and we had to trespass a girl who tried climbing up the patio of our building with help from her friends. Her drunk friend of course got put into protective custody because he could barely walk!

The interesting part of the night was around 3AM. We had someone come down and tell us his friend had drunk and was sleeping and fell off the top bunk and was not responding. After about 10 minutes they got a response from him but had to take him to hospital to check him to see if he got a concussion. He did not look happy when the EMT’s pull him out in a stretcher all strapped up. We checked up on him and he is doing fine now, THANK GOD!! =)

Did I mention, he threw up everywhere =/. Poor Erick, our maintainer had to come in at 3:30 to clean up the room that was full of vomit.

The night finally began to quiet down after that, and sunday consisted of me, in my bed, attempting to do homework. After-all, I am still in school! =)

HAPPY MONDAY!!

In Brasil there is this famous saying used to describe efficient and effective people. We say they are like brillo pads with one thousand and one uses. I know it sounds wierd when you translate it but it is the exact way I would describe Erick!

Erick is the maintainer in our building. Our building is apartment style and houses 212 students. Ericks keeps up with all of that. He not only does the daily chores like vaccuum the hallways, mops the elevator and sweep the stairs, he also takes care of the parking area downstairs, the patio, and the plants outside too!!

When we had a crazy snowstorm, Erick was outise in the moring using a snowblower to make a path for the students to leave with their cars! He snow blew almost the ENTIRE parking lot! This man is a genius!

When we have a plumber, HVAC,carpentry, or electrical problem, guess who fixes it? That’s right Erick. He literally does everything. We never have to call anyone else in becasue Erick knows how to fix it!

Besides being so helpful around the building he is also the nicest and funniest man you will every meet. He is so easy going and probably knows as much, if not more, of the residents than I do.

I strongly believe that part of the reason why our building has had no damages yet this semester and is kept up so well is becasue of Erick, The best maintainer ever! and I mean it!

I just wanted to post about him today because he too is a big part of the building and deserves to be appreciated like everyone else! He is the coolest! =D

**I will post a picture soon,
