Once the residents of 1 North were settled in, I encouraged them to go to any campus events available to them. I told them it was a great way to make friends and meet new people. The first event we attended was Bridgefest. Bridgefest is an event where students can go to take part in some fun activities, such as a mechanical bull, soccer darts and much more. Bridgefest is also a great way to find some clubs, or businesses affiliated with UW-Platteville that students may be interested in.
I engaged with a few residents in our little push-up challenge where in order to stay healthy we do 20 push-ups every night, so we didn’t let each other pass a certain point in the hallway unless we did our 20 push-ups. Its a good way to stay motivated and keep each other honest. I did my 20, and so did they!
Today it was a resident of mines birthday and I celebrated with him by getting him a little treat from gwam; those snowball donut things. Unfortunately we didn’t have that great of weather but I did get the resident outside in the cold rain for some exercise.
New bulletin board up about ways to avoid getting sick. I know that the temperature is getting warmer and most of you are not worried about getting sick. However it is always a possibility and with it being warm most take less care of making sure they are properly dressed, especially when it isn’t as warm as we pretend it is.
New bulletin board up on the top 10 FREE museums in the country. A lot of cool ones up there that you can find all around the country. You may even know some of them. There are also some reasons why going to museums is good for you!
Some cool new door decorations up for you all. Thanks Clara for creating these awesome things all by hand! It took over 75 hours to complete them all! Just kidding it was a cricket machine but the love is still there! I hope you like them!
Since the weekend was so nice and I was able to get most of my homework done, a resident and I were able to throw the football around a bit in the circle and enjoy the amazingly beautiful day. (it was 76 degrees holy crap!!) Nice to get the arm a workout and get some outdoor time as well!
