Last night, Brain and I were joined by Greg and Cody for some fresh salsa making. This event was held by the sustainability office here on campus. We got the chance to pick our own ingredients and mix it all together. It was a great way to learn a nice easy yet healthy snack that we can grow in our backyard!
With high interest from the wing during move in week, I was able to create a Fantasy Football League for our wing. Late Monday night concluded the first week of games and it is great being able to hear the wing talking about the football games going on and talking about each others teams. This brought the wing closer together by giving the wing to interact with each other.
On Monday, I had a great conversation in the hallway with a few of my residents. We talked about all the clubs everyone was involved in including Student Senate, SAE, Ski Club, and Smash bros. It got the residents interested in one another but it was also a great way to learn on how some of these clubs help them through college and in life in general.
Curious what happens in a minute? Time goes by and sometimes we forget what goes on around us. The fact that stands out the most is the how much food gets thrown away in the US. All that food gets thrown away while big name companies make more money than we can imagine. It is up to us to make the difference.
Last night at our wing meeting, each resident had to say one thing that made them happy this year and one thing that made them sad. This was a great community builder and even though we have less than 4 weeks left together it definitely brought everyone closer. It also gave me a sense of what was going on with my guys that I couldn’t see was happening.
Tonight, I challenged a handful of my residents to a push up contest. I got completely destroyed but afterwords we had a really good conversation about the benefits of working out, especially right before finals week. I might challenge them again but hopefully I do better!
