The Daily RA

The Daily RA This is my 3rd year as an RA & my senior year. I wanted to document each step of the way with door decs, programs, stories, and reblog some things that are too true.

Feel free to leave me any questions! :)

Any discussion about how quite hours are boring or not fair

The Duty RA Prayer

Reblogged from resident-assistant

alterbellum:

Now I lay me down to sleep,
Their keys I hope the freshmen keep,
And if a call shakes me awake,
I pray it’s just a small mistake.
Amen.

Oh my gosh so cute

What I wish I can do when residents are being loud…

My kids are so wonderful!

All of the residents living on campus are required to meet with at least one of the RAs on the floor in a sort of one-on-one meeting. My Co and I decided to do so more formally than others and have them sign up for appointments and I had over 20 kids sign up on my door already and everyone who has signed up has shown up on time so far (two of them came early)!

Considering that I have to be in these meetings for approximately 7.5-8 hours (62kids split between my co and I = 31kids for 15mins or so), the fact that they are coming to me makes it 100% more enjoyable!

They’ve actually been really active during the meetings too instead of just finding ways to answer open ended questions with just a word or two.

Hearing the things that go on when I am not around

I was gone for half the weekend… gotta love what I come back to.

My advice when residents think they can’t do this. (whatever this is)

Last night I drove 4hrs away from my college to visit my boyfriend. When I woke up, he was still sleeping, so I spent a good hour on Yik Yak going through and making sure nothing bad was posted about my building or my kids.
