College is a time where time becomes a very valuable resource. With that, I have made a bulletin on tips of how to save time so you can have more time to do whatever you may need. This bulletin had 21 different tips of different areas to help you save some time. Some of these are about saving time with: studies, organization, social life, etc. I hope these come in handy to save you all some time and stress, for I know I try to save as much as I can. Fun fact: recent research has shown that 1:42 PM is the start of the most stressful time of the day. Thus why the clock is at 1:42 PM. If you let me know which one you enjoy, I will reward you with a piece of candy.
This is probably my favorite board for the year. This is bulletin is filled with pictures of the best creature in the world, dogs. Dogs bring happiness to a number of people around the world with them being goofy, cute, and all around just amazing. For those who like cats, I threw a bone for you and included a corner that has a few pictures of cats. I hope you get some smiles from this board. Because sometimes people suck and life is hard, so take a moment and look at some dogs. If you show me which picture(s) is/are your favorite, I will reward you with a piece of candy. I hope you enjoy!
Hey all! I got a new bulletin that has some things that it took Dave Berry, a writer and humorist, 50+ years to learn. Though some of these are more just funny, there is some good advice in there to thing about. Some of which can make your life a little easier. I hope you find some good information from this and some humor as well. If you stop by and tell me your favorite one, I will reward you with a piece of candy!
We had our final Pizza with the Profs this last Wednesday. We had: Andrew Cartmill (Agriculture), Elizabeth Gates (Psychology), and Austin Polebitski (Civil and Env. Eng.). We had a great chance to eat some pizza and to talk to them all and get to know them in there academia/professional area but as well as in a more personal sense. Kaleb from the wing showed up as well! I was glad to be able to finish with another successful Pizza with the Profs!
Last Wednesday, the RA of 1 West, Tyler, and I hosted a COD Black Ops II Tourney that brought in a good number of people from the hall. This was a fun chance to get away from the stress of life and have some fun with others in the hall. Nick, from 4 West ended up winning the whole tournament but we did have some members from our wing: such as Brock and Trip, who could made it far and possibly even won it all. Other people we had included: Jason, Sean, and Chuyee. Later into the event, Austin and Ian showed up to play some after the tourney was done. Towards the end we started cracking more jokes and also messed with each other how friends would to have a fun time. It was a good time! I hope to game with some more of you in the future!
Rain Man a film about someone named Charlie Babbit (played by Tom Cruise) who learns about his father’s passing. After learning that he has an older brother named Raymond (Dustin Hoffman) who has autism, and Charlie learns that his father’s $3 million fortune is being left to the mental institution in which Raymond lives. Motivated by his father’s money, Charlie checks Raymond out of the facility in order to return with him to Los Angeles. This journey becomes an experience that changes both of their lives. This movie gives more of a personal view of someone who has autism. This movie gives perspective and it is truly a story of growth and learning. Honestly, it is a great movie. No wonder it has over 20 nominations and 25 awards. Rain Man also helps give you some more perspective. The takeaway I had from this movie is not to judge a book by it’s cover. (Minor spoiler alert), you end up learning that Raymond has a great memory and is very good at math which includes counting. Just because someone has a mental disability, doesn’t mean that they are a good person who have a lot of potential. I would highly recommend this film for you learn a lot. We had a few people show up including Hayden and his significant other, Morgan.
Last Wednesday, I was able to go to the Porter night in Vegas with Sean and Bobby! We weren’t there for too long but we had a chance to get some games in before the auction began. There was an entry fee of $3 but the proceeds went to the Special Olympics. We got some Porter Cash and was able to go and play: Texas hold ’em, blackjack, roulette, craps, and some euchre going on as well. We had a good time while we could! Bobby had to go early, but Sean and I stayed for the auction and he was able to win something! Twas a good night while it lasted.
