My Life as an RA

Posts Tagged ‘inspiration

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 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!


Have a Happy Wednesday


Hey bloggers!

It has been a while since I have updated. SORRY! I have had some pretty boring days. A lot of studying and “you-tubing” has been going on. My new favorite video on youtube would be the girl who sneezes with one eye open. Click here to watch. I just cannot get enough from it.

Anyways, the most exciting thing that has happened in this whole week would be the missing fire extinguisher in my building.The Resident Director sent an e-mail out and all the RA’s had to go around and knock on the doors. The next day the extinguisher was back, but empty. We have no idea who used it and where they discharged it. In light of this week’s event, here are two links: the first is how to use an extinguisher, the second how to clean up.

Besides exams and fire extinguishers, my days have been pretty boring. The long weekend is right around the corner and I can’t wait to go home and enjoy the family and boyfriend! For some inspiration on the rest of the week… =)

Do any of you have any interesting stories to tell? Mine have been pretty boring lately.
