Last night, I joined some residents who were watching the Lion King. And man did that bring some memories back. Afterwords we did some talk of various stories, mostly of funny stories of previous roommates, of ourselves, or just other things that had happened. A good chance to get to know each other better while enjoying a good laugh or two. I’ve always been a fan of conversations with people, and hope to enjoy many more with you all!
Last night, playfair happened. Basically one of the largest ice breakers I have ever been apart of. I was able to walk some residents to play fair as well as talk to them before it happened. I encouraged them to go out and get involved. It’s a great way to meet some people in this new chapter of life. I still will encourage everyone to go out and get involved and meet people. My biggest regret was not going out, getting involved and meeting new people. I learned some new things about myself. I learned that I really enjoy swing dancing. It may be hard, but I ask that you try something new. College is a new chapter and a chance to explore. You may find that you really enjoy what new thing you try, and find out something new about yourself.
Yesterday, some residents of 1 East, RA Tyler of 1 West and some of his residents got together to play a game. This game was called Superfight. Basically, two people pick up three character cards and three attribute/weakness cards, and each person picks one of each. Then they proceed to pick another attribute/weakness and then they have their characters. Each person has to argue who would win and why. It was the first time we played and actually really fun! We had a great chance to meet new people, and get to know each other. 10/10, would highly recommend superfight. I hope to play again with more of you guys in the future!
UW-Platteville has a lot of resources on campus. They are there to help you, but you must take that step to go to them to have them help you. What is important is to know what is there and what they can do for you. I have provided a few of the many resources that are here. As well as a short description of the provided resources. Take a look, learn about some of the resources, and if you have any questions. I am more than happy to help you find a resource or provide more information about them.
On Saturday there was a get together so people could take a break from studying and eat some ice cream and hang out in the basement. It was an awesome get together and a decent amount of people showed up and enjoyed the ice cream and toppings available to them. Everybody was able to relax from all of their studying for finals which can be good to do every now and then.
Kieth and I went to Pizza with the Professors and we got to talk to two professors that were there. One was for geography and the other one was reclamation. It was a lot of fun and we got to learn a lot about them. We got to eat a lot of pizza and had some soda there as well.
