We knock, you knock, and you get candy! On Halloween, the Melcher staff went around the building and handed out candy and uplifting quotes in honor of the holiday and classic trick-or-treating (with a twist). We hope we brought a smile to your face, and that you had an awesome Halloween!
To kick off Halloweek, Hannah, Becky, and I ventured downstairs to check out Spook-a-Thon. We learned about different horror-genre video games, watched Nightmare Before Christmas, and ate lots of snacks. It was the best way to start a great week of Halloween fun!
During this time of year, sometimes residents feel defeated from homework and missing their friends and families back home. To cheer up the residents, I decided to write everybody a note, Halloween-style. So remember to keep your heads up and “stay boo-tiful!”
Katie, Kristina, and I went to the SAS Presentation: Health 101 on Monday. We learned new ways to cope with stress, how to choose the right foods to eat, how many hours of sleep to get each night, and lots more. It was a great reminder before the colder days ahead to take care of ourselves and to stay as healthy as possible. Also, remember to attend SAS presentations if you are in UWP Study!
As we edge further into the school year, roommates get to know each other better. However, conflicts can also rise around this time as well. This board informs residents of how to handle certain situations like personal space, study times, cleaning, and communication.
Always feel free to ask your RA for help if you need anything!
In honor of LGBT History Month, I created a board that can help guide those who are confused as to when they should use the word “gay.” Many people are confused about when to say it, or they use the term in a negative sense. This visual model shows when it is acceptable to say “gay” and when another word should be used instead.
National Coming Out Day is October 11th.
Last Tuesday Katie, Kaily, Erik, and I headed to Halloween Bingo to have fun and win some treats! We ate supper at The Haus then enjoyed a few rounds of Bingo. It was a great way to take a break from school–we even won Ramen and Coca-Cola!
