This is me, my first year as an RA.
How my RA likes to remind us to clean up after ourselves
When I see a resident destroying my bulletin board that took me hours to create.
When a resident demands to speak to the RHD about an obvious policy violation:
Realizing that Winter Checkouts Start Right After Thanksgiving
When My Residents Start Talking About The Party They Are About To Leave For.
When you are attending another RA event to make up numbers
The Duty RA Prayer
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.
When you realize that you have another duty weekend coming up very soon
When your favorite resident doesn’t apply to be an RA
When My RD Announces that It’s Time to Schedule Duty Next Semester
Needing to call EMS at 2 am for a resident when you’re not on call and have to be up at 7am
It’s almost that time of the semester.
Trying to be an RA and a student as finals approach
How I’m going to make it to Thanksgiving Break
