Residents response to any information that takes longer than 5 mins to explain
okay, agreed wholeheartedly but the crazy person in me needs to point out that THAT IS NOT THE CORRECT IMAGE FOR THAT LINE IN THE MOVIE. i’ve seen it three times, it’s not right and it bothered me.
but yeah, residents don’t pay attention to anything ever.
that is all.

gotta remember this for next year
so this just became a goal.
Every semester surveys get sent out to all the residents where they answer questions regarding their RA’s performance. 12 of my 20 residents filled them out and 11 of them were overwhelmingly positive and I’m beaming as my boss is reading all the comments to me, UNTIL, she gets to one residents who described me as invisible and unapproachable and complained that I play my music too loud and I fail to shut the other girls up when she’s trying to study. First off, I told all of the girls that if my music bothered them, they could tell me and I’d turn it down (which I have) and I NEVER play music after quiet hours, most of my residents actually ASK me to play music because they like the environment it sets for the floor. I do programs at least every other week, I make them door decs every month, I stop and talk to them on my rounds and I defend them 24/7. If this resident is the girl I think she is, she goes to bed an hour and a half before quiet hours and expects all the girls to be quiet FOR HER. This is COLLEGE, people are LOUD. This is my first year as an RA and I was so excited to get good feedback and then she ruined it. I do my best :(
when two of your residents who have been casually hooking up all semester all of a sudden make their relationship exclusive and facebook official.
