My Life as an RA

Snow day

Posted on: March 2, 2012

Hey bloggers,

So my school is traumatized by snow due to the ridiculous snowpocalypse that happened in October. Since then, we have had a basically snowless winter… UNTIL… wednesday!!

I am an RA in downtown housing so we have to deal with city parking. Unfortunatley, the city is not very helpful and so we are stuck with having to try and be the go to people for what the city is doing (even though they do not really inform us). Around 10PM on wednesday night an officer started ticketing all the student cars parked on the side street without warning. Apparently there was a street parking ban that had bveen updated at 7PM. Many students were checking the website and saw nothing until around 10:15PM. My boss tried to get him to wait a couple minutes so we could get people to move their cars and he refused to help out and said the tow would be coming in an hour.  Me, another RA, my boss, and another RD, were running around the building telling people to move their cars. Apparently the website we checked was not the most reliable, even though the city clerk told us to use that site. Luckily we were able to get all the cars moved before the tow showed up and all the students will be appealing the tickets! =) Love downtown housing but not when it comes to parking!

From now on, we will be checking the local t.v. station and getting the update from the weather blog to help out the student and their commute to campus!

Have a great weekend!!!

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!

HAPPY MONDAY!!

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 =)
