Day in the Life

7:00 a.m. — Wake up. Well, alarm goes off, but…

7:30 a.m.-8:45 a.m. — Shower, get dressed, quick breakfast, quick check of email/text messages, etc.

8:55 a.m. — Walk across to the Center for Religion Spirituality and Social Justice (CRSSJ) from Younker, realize that the sun was deceiving and I should have grabbed a jacket or sweater. Ohhh well.

 9 a.m. — Check and respond to emails while preparing for morning meetings (forgot to send out an all Smounker email about the upcoming construction).

9:30 a.m. — CRSSJ weekly staff meeting where we mainly check in with each other about what everyone is working on.

10 a.m. — Residence Life Coordinator roundup meeting where we discuss only the joys of working in a self-governing community. LOL.

11:15 a.m. — Pick up college mini-van in order to pick up food for the 12:00 Faith-in-Action Dialogue and to later do shuttles for Community Meal.

5:36 p.m. — Check-in on student who has not been doing/feeling well.

6:00 p.m. — Eat by myself because nobody loves me. Just kidding! Eating with RLC’s or random students I find in the dining hall.

7:00 p.m. — Either find out what is happening on campus or go back to my apartment to catch up on TV shows on either broadcasted TV or on (I love that website).

8 p.m. — weekly student staff meeting.
