My Life as an RA

Posts Tagged ‘Friday

Good morning everyone! It is Monday!

This weekend I stayed at school and decided to go on rounds of the campus with my boss because he was RDOD, (resident director on duty). The campus was swarming with people, but nothing was “happening.”

When we were leaving the last building we had to visit, he saw someone throw a HUGE traffic cone out the window. We obviously cannot ignore things like this because not only is it a policy violation, but it puts others in harm. He called public safety and when we got up to the apartment, no one answered the door.

Finally a girl and a guy answered the door and said that they did not live in the apartment and that everyone had left them. We let them go and soon enough we see a huge crowd of people coming towards the room and so we tell them to stop and they RUN!!!

We went on a chase, only to find out that no one left the building, but that they ran into another room.(which we did not have a clue which room) When we went back up to the apartment, 3 guys were there. Tt was an all girl apartment, so once again, none of them lived there.

We started to get annoyed because people continued to try to come back, but no one lived there. We told everyone to leave and locked the apartment door that the girls had left unlocked. The cone culprit is yet to be found.

The rest of the night consisted of us riding around campus with the police officers,waiting for a call. We had no calls, just plenty of jokes from car to car.

If it’s one thing I have learned as an RA, it’s that when you are expecting something to happen, nothing happens, when you expect a quiet night, EVERYTHING happens.

It was just one of those wierd Friday nights where nothing happened…

OH WELL!! GOOD FOR US!!! NO REPORTS!! =)

Have a great week everyone!

It is friday!! I am so excited!!

Today will be such an exciting day because we have the RA Banquet and the theme is hollywood. This means I am getting super dressed up today! On top of that my boss is working tonight and I made over one hundred cookies last night to bring around to public safety and the other RA’s that will be on =).

To top off all the awesomeness I had my NINJA event on Wednesday and it was fun. I am required to have a campus-wide event and I chose to do NINJA. It actually is an acronym that I made up with the help of some other RA’s with steps to making important decisions. Only 12 people came BUT… we had loads of fun! Here are some pics:

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!!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!

I am super excited it is Friday. I work this weekend and we have senate banquet tonight! Senate Banquet is like a prom for college kids =) anyways that is not what I am here to talk about so here’s my story…

Last week was an amazingly nice week full of sunshine and warm weather. When I got back to the building I decided to sit outside on the patio with the ISO and another RA. We were having a nice conversation and than I got the call, not just any call, but the call that started it all.

One of the RA’s from the building needed me to post a sign on his door for him and so I went innocently upstairs to put a sign on his door. Once that was all set, I decided to go up the elevator to the 5th floor to grab the RA phone because I was going to be on duty that night. The elevator took too long so off I went to the stairwell.

When I opened the door to the stairwell, I literally get rammed by a big black lab and a resident trying to rush up as fast as possible. I looked at the dog and looked at him and than the dog again. I was speechless. Personally, I was dying to pet the dog and play with him, but I just couldn’t. I ask the kid what the heck he was doing with the dog. He said that he took it for his friend to go to dinner with her parents. than he said and I quote “I told her I would take the dog and I never thought I would run into the RA.” I guess today was just his lucky day =) I sent him away, but that was not the last time I saw him.

Let’s just say everything else that happened that night (which was ALOT) was revolved around this kid and his apartment. HECTIC night…but that is a story for another day =)

Here is a funny video that I know anyone can relate to if they are the RA or the resident =) ENJOY!!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Hi Bloggers!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

So a couple of nights ago we had an event in the building thrown by hall council and we made flubber! We had a great time and many fails before we succeeded!

I was going to talk about all the fun BUT, last night we had a fire alarm. Why? MY APARTMENT!!  Read the rest of this entry »

Hey Bloggers,

I know what your thinking, what the heck does vodka and munchkins have to do with another. Apparently they don’t, but they were two things that were in my face yesterday!

Our building has been so good with not having damages lately that my boss decided to treat the residents to some juice and munchkins. It was very fun sitting downstairs and watching all these people chow down on munchkins. It’s nice to see how simple things make people happy =)

When we were cleaning up we see one of the residents about to enter the building with a box of beer and a bottle of vodka. He quickly turned around and put the stuff back into his car. What makes this worthy of blogging about is because he got in trouble not even 2 weeks ago with alcohol and here he comes strolling into the building like it’s no big deal. To make things even more interesting, he lives on the same floor as the RD… talk about lesson not being learned!

Oh well!! I got my munchkins so I’m happy =)

Have a happy weekend! Let’s pray for nothing toOo crazy this weekend…. I’ll be working =)
