On November 6th, Both James and I held a pizza party in the basement to celebrate both the wings coming together and go over events for the week. We had several different drinks, pizza, and we watched the first half of the Packer game. We also played a few games of Ping Pong to show off some of our skills. Special Shout out to Richie for picking up the pizzas and pop!
On November 1st, I constructed the No-Shave November to inform residents of the significance of the month and how it relates to the goal of cancer research with beards! A few of the residents have already showed their support with me to raise awareness for the month.
On October 24th, The hall came together to have wings. A lot of the residents participated and had fun just hanging out! Honey BBQ was the top most picked sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings!
The Variety Show was a blast and a half. On Thursday, October 12th, James, Zeke, and I performed in the show. We performed to many different songs around the world like Africa, Gangnam Style, and many more. We had so much fun and a few of the residents even showed up! Even though, we didn’t win, we sure made it memorable!
On Wednesday, October 11th, Caleb and a bunch of the residents from the hall went to the event to cheer on our team. We got to about the quarter finals and then we lost, but overall it was a blast and a great way to cheer on our hall.
On Tuesday/Wednesday, October 10th and the 11th, Lauren, me and a few of the residents found ourselves in the escape rooms late at night. We had a blast how much we had to think through every step. We were given 30 minutes to diffuse a “bomb” and if we didn’t, we would “die.” We got extremely close until we eventually ran out of time because we could not figure out the last part of the escape room. The residents had fun doing it and so did I.
On Monday, October 9th, a few of the residents and some of the RAs got together for tug of war. We weren’t the biggest group out in the pit, but we gave it our all and had a bunch of fun doing it. Rolando was there too supporting his team, but we talked a little about it after it was all said and done. We lost both of our matches to international club and HHP unfortunately but we had fun.
On Thursday, September 28th, I hosted the pool event for the Circle Olympics and it started from 7 PM and went until about 9 at night. It was awesome to see a bunch of people come from separate wings and challenge each other to be the best they can. We may have come short in winning the event, but that didn’t stop us from having a good time.
On September 1st, I hung up the About Me bulletin and it signified that my residents could get to know a little about me and what I do. It makes breaking the ice easier with me and makes them feel a little more welcome.
