Next to the bathroom, I put up a bulletin board that the ladies of my wing can write something they learned or how they have been changed being in college. You can see the way they have changed and how they have become a community. They have all changed through so much from the beginning of the year.
Saturday March 4th, Wilgus Hall held Women’s Weekend! At 6 P.M. residents and I attend the Paint and Punch. We had some healthy snacks and awesome punch. We each made our own design on a blank canvas. We made something that can reflect our personality and have something we will forever cherish.
It’s a new year and for most people a new you. On the Bulletin board by the bathroom were some keys. Each Key had a different phrase to help you be as successful as possible. Some of these Keys include: Be proactive, Remember your manners, and setting goals for one’s self. These keys all can help you to change how you act, how you see yourself, and how others see you.
At our last wing meeting of the year we decorated gingerbread mes. Each resident got their own gingerbread cookie. They had access to frosting, sprinkles, M&M, and Twizzlers to decorate their cookie with. Some of the made themselves, with hats and trousers. Other gave them the looks of the person they were going to let eat it. And yet others just did their own things. My residents were able to decide what their gingerbread me should look like and be. It let their personal identity come out.
On Friday November 11th, some residents and I attended Wilgus’s Paint and Punch FNC. There were 3 options for painting. We split up between the puppy and the sun and moon options. How ever after attempting the painting a couple of residents wanted to express themselves by doing something of their own design. They made their own creation of a painting that expressed themselves. The paintings ended up being very creative and more them than the original options.
It’s always fun to ask strange questions. The would you rather board located next to the bathroom will have a new question every week of which you would rather have or do. Have an idea for a would you rather question tell me and I’ll put it up as the next week’s would you rather.
During our first wing meeting we used pipecleaners and colorful yarn to make truffla trees. We then used the Truffla Trees for our ice breaker. Each tree top and tree trunk had a different thing they had to say. Everyone one had to say their name, hometown, and major. Then depending on their tree top and trunk gave either fun facts, favorite food, favorite animal, something they want to do as a wing, or what ever they had to answer.
Just like I want to get to know each and every one of you, I want you all to know a little about me. On the bulletin board by the bathroom you will see things that I have done and that help make me who I am. I hope you find something that peaks your interest and ask me about it.
We all get into ruts and start thinking we can’t do something. When you have negative thoughts about not being able to do homework or pass a test just try changing the words you say. Changing the words you are thinking can really make an impact on the way you react to your situation. Check out the bulletin board by the bathroom to see some thoughts you can change.
