Hello 1 East! Since it is around the time of the first set of exams, I have put bags of popcorn in your guys mailboxes with some corny jokes on them! (Get it?!?) That way you have a snack, and a sensible chuckle/terrible joke to help lift your spirits a bit with this tough time. Good luck everyone!
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.
I got to make a board on mental health conditions. I really enjoyed making this board and got to learn a lot as well. The board itself contains information on Schizophrenia, Depression, Anxiety Disorders, and Bipolar Disorder. People who have these conditions tend to have problems with their emotions and controlling them. A persons emotions can really influence things that they do so it is important to get help if you feel like you would need it.
Kieth, Sam, and I all got together and made pancakes for the entire hall after the math exam. It was a great time and a lot of people come down and ate some pancakes. We all got to hang out and talk to new people and meet others. Everybody got to relax after a stressful exam and enjoy a good breakfast.
Everyone had a fun and informative time during Adam’s program on finishing the semester strong. We talked about what we did in classes that went well and what we did in classes that didn’t go so well. We talked about different ways that we can do better in our classes and how to study for finals. We covered ways to not get stressed out and do well on the exams. Hope to see everyone at the next program.
Everyone has had a bad day, either a bad exam score, problems with a friend, or just feeling down. The new bulletin board is to help you feel better and have a happier day. I hope it helps you brighten your day.
Take a look at the newest board up on the wing. It talks about mental health and how many people are affected by mental health issues. Take a look and see how common these issues really are.
