My Life as an RA

Posts Tagged ‘food

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 =)

Hi everyone,

So I’ve been thinking, and I noticed that I talk a whole lot about occurrences with all the drunk people, and not enough about the more relaxing part of the job. Today I want to talk about getting inspired for programming and events. I have a various number of links that can help you get inspired. These ideas can help with everyone too, not just RA’s!!

The first places I go to when looking for ideas are RA Programming sites, the top one being Reslife.net. BUT…

When I have lots of time in my hands, I try to create some events and programs that people have not done before. Repeating the same old things can get boring, for not only you, but your event goers too. I try getting inspired randomly.

Take peanut butter for example. That website has a list of national peanut butter days, you could take a whole month and devote it to peanut butter things (as long as no one is allergic) Have a food tasting event and Peanut Butter Games. GET CREATIVE!! finding inspiration in the weirdest of places can sometimes get you the best turn out.

Lastly, I want to mention the money aspect. We get a $150.00 budget but I like to save as much as possible. If you can find as many do it yourself things as possible, you can save money and throw a HOOPLA and go all out at the end of the semester!! Also, just browsing the internet one day you might  find something inspirational! Always keep your eyes open =)

Here is a silly video I found on youtube with some RA’s hosting a game-show week!

I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL!!

Have a Happy Wednesday
