brittanyybeth: Because they deemed that if a girl in footy pajamas is found in a boy’s room after midnight, it doesn’t matter because…she’s in footy pajamas.

chicago-reslife: 10. You can put “model” on your resume from all the pictures that will be taken of you. 9. You will be introduced as “This is ______, my RA” for the rest of your life. 8. You will become best friends with the security guards, Marlon and Mr. B. 7. You get to use a real life pager. Like from…
thatralauren: I don’t know what kind of program I want to do for my hall in the next couple weeks. I don’t want to do a generic “oh it’s finals week, have a study session!” kind of program. I want to give my residents an opportunity to have fun and NOT worry about stress and exams. What is everyone doing for their end-of-semester programming?
That Awkward Moment When...
matt561: Your roommate starts following you on Tumblr… Or your residents… EEP!
I need an idea for my February door decorations....
Just because you ‘paid’ for this dorm, doesn’t give you the right to be...– The Cool RA (via thecoolra)
Did not miss my residents.
dreamingbydaylight: The girls, they just keep screaming. You’ve been apart for not even a week. Chill the fuck out.
tstov: It is one of the funniest parts of my job when you think you’re getting away with shit. “Man, the RA is so stupid she/he couldn’t even tell that I was drunk/high/whatever”. No. It’s not that I don’t notice, it’s that just I don’t feel like putting in the energy it takes to write your ass up right now

donttakeitsopersonally: There are no words to describe how amazing this break has been. I thought I would be lonely since I’m the one person on my staff who hasn’t gone home for a weekend all semester and has had no one visit them, but I’m not. I realized I’m right where I need to and want to be. I’m so sore from…
Student Leader Problems:
studentleaderproblems: I don’t feel like getting out of bed for Black Friday and dealing with all these people. Ridiculous. Too much like on call.
bizzymac: I don’t know where this is at, but this is when I wish slip n slides were allowed. I do not want to be their RA on Monday.

Weekend before Thanksgiving break
nerdybit: The title is merely a nice way of saying “the residents on campus have all gone insane. I’m not even on Duty right now, but I’m up anyway in case there is an emergency, because I have a horrible feeling. And the residents have all gone crazy.” The residents part really needed to be added in there twice.
tessellation29: Going to sleep Not setting an alarm. Ignoring the fact that I just saw one of my residents drunk in the hallway and some guy in the elevator reeked of shitty vodka and gave me this shit-eating grin like he was the coolest person in the world. Seriously? Dude. I’m already in my pajamas and you were in the lobby when you saw me change my “ON DUTY” sign to the “in my room”...
Just got off duty, had 2 incidents which in total involved 18 kids… Like honestly… wtf. 18… eight fucking teen.

emmaleighily: I was giving housing tours to perspective freshman students today, and one of the parents said to me “It must me really nice, having free living on campus. You must really enjoy being able to be so carefree with everything covered.” I smiled politely, nodded, and continued with the tour. I am…

Blackout - round 2
Once upon a time there was the Great Blackout, Winter 2011. The whole town was out as well as the hospital downtown. The town across the river was black. Nothing could be seen, except for the ice (and ice was really the only thing seen for the next two weeks). CA’s spent the whole night manning the doors, answering questions, and doing rounds in the (mostly) dark res halls. Residents started...
Being the "Bitch" RA
So, my kiddos (yes I call my residents kiddos) live in apartment style dorms. So, they don’t think they have enough space and decide to travel their shenanigans to the outside. I have no problem since it isn’t quite hours and they are not violating any policies… But, once quite hours begin and I do my rounds… their face is that of this kitty. I’m the bitch because I...

Last Night. did that really just happen?
donttakeitsopersonally: Got 2 hours of sleep because I had to take a make up exam. I was up till 5am doing documentation. Everything that could go wrong, did. I woke up with my name tag on… and didn’t realize I had it on till someone pointed it out.
Call me cheese cause I'm mac-in' on these crafts.
daringartisticadventurer: “We are a box of crayons, each one of us unique, but when we get together, the picture is complete.” Spring floor theme. Boom, community.

The walls are thin.

can you complain about your roommate tomorrow?
peacex3lovex3happiness: its 3am i want to go to bed….
Resies Think They Are So Smart
jackofallspades: Screaming “Fuck The RA’s” through the paper thin walls. Or that we can’t smell the alcohol. Or the fact that your paranoia gives away that you are up to something (no, I’m not that cute. You want to know if I suspect something, which we do. we always do).
