Hello 1 East! The opening door decs for this semester were some snowflakes! With snowflakes, at a glance each one seems to be the same but when you get take a closer look, each and every snowflakes is different. The same could be said about people. Each and every snowflake has its “things” that makes every snowflake different and unique in its own way. It is important to remember that each of us is our own person and we should embrace that. We were all made to be different, so be you. You’ll find each snowflake door dec to be different just like each and every one of us. Remember, each one of us is our own person, so embrace who you are for you. Enjoy the door decs!
With the New Year, usually comes a time that people want to make some changes with themselves since it is a new year and a good chance to make that change. Some New Year’s resolutions include: lose weight, save money, improve on self-care, and etc. The biggest problem with New Year’s Resolutions is that people struggle to keep on them. I have included some of the most common New Year’s resolutions to give you some ideas if you need any, as well as some tips to help you stay on top of any New Year’s resolutions that you may have.
Would you rather is a question based game where you are presented two answers and must pick which one you would prefer. I have taken that and made it into a bulletin board! You can go on up, and see what prompts are provided. I will replace them as needed or every once in a while. Some of the choices are rather easy picks, but some of them make you think of what you really would like of the two. This can lead to some pretty deep thought of what you would like. This can reveal what you really like or want. Take a moment or two to come by, look at the prompts, and maybe have a bit of a tough decision or two. Enjoy!
Last Tuesday I held a time where I wanted to take some residents to Swing Dance Club to help show them a club that I find very enjoyable myself. Although some were not able to make it, Sean was able to! We had a good time and he learned lots of new things! At the end of the night when we talking about it, he said that Swing Dance Club has a new member. Although somethings out there may not seem too interesting to start, it is worth to try new things for you might find that you enjoy it!
Last Thursday, I held a program to show Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 to help “make up” for the cancelled movie from welcome weekend. I talked about how Peter Quill aka Star Lord, goes on an adventure where he learns a lot more about himself and where he comes from, and rather unexpectedly too. I talk how it is a deeper movie than the first since he is going through more discovery, but still a good movie. Life at times will throw unexpected events at you but you may just learn something else about yourself. Nate, Bobby, Brock, Ashley, Emily, and I were there, and we had a good time watching the movie! Plus there was some good popcorn as well.
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.
As a staff we all went and a a motivational speaker over in Velzy Commons. Our speaker was Monti Washingotn. It was a great time where we were able to learn a lot about each other and the speaker. We were able to set goals about what we wanted to do in the future. This helped us figure out more into what we want as we grow older.
