I just had a conversation with my RA.
jellyflare: Wow, she’s actually really nice. Like, maybe she was only really talking to me because she’s my RA and they’re SUPPOSED to be that way, but she seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say, so that was nice.
sinkintotheblue: If I were to ever become a college RA my first floor activity would be floor wide capture the flag, followed by assassins, hallway bowling and possibly water balloon fights…I’d probably be fired.
Sh*t Freshmen Say
RA: Oh hey, excuse me, you can't be drinking in the Residence Hall
Resident clearing with beer can: I was just holding it and gonna give it back to my friend
RA (thoughts): OH SURE. And I'm sure your freshmen guest is OF COURSE over 21 too, right?
Resident still holding beer can: Can't I just put it away and we'll all call it a night?
RA (thoughts): Hah.

quiteakookycouple: and I was the primary RA on duty Then my duty phone died. However, my partner and I were able to keep my entire area incredibly calm. I got to not only see but feel how important being an RA truly is and how I was able to respond to a crisis. It felt amazing to help so many others. I really love being an ra!

Sh*t My Residents Say
I have a room on the 1st floor of my building, facing behind the building, where there is a walkway, but no academic buildings, so a lot of people do drugs out there. I still always keep my shades down, because the one time I forget to close them will be the one day I lay sleep naked or something. At about 1 AM this morning, I just hear “oh f*ck, I think that’s [my name]’s room,...

youknowyoureanrawhen: scrolling through my dash… come across pictures of bongs… yell at screen “WHY IS THERE PARAPHERNALIA ON MY DASHBOARD?!?!” definitely a “you know you’re an RA when” moment.
I think I just scarred an RA
wewerebrunchin: My roommate gave her pass key permission to get into my room because my roommate left her lab coat here. Meanwhile I’m just chillin on my bed in nothing but a towel because I just had a shower and don’t like being dressed unless I absolutely have to.
