Hello, again, dear readers! As you may know, this past Monday and Tuesday were fall break for undergraduate LMU students, and I don’t know about everyone else, but my break was especially wonderful. While I did do a few exciting things, like participating in the Color Me Rad 5K race with my old roommate, Megan, as well as a few productive things, like catching up on homework assignments, I spent the majority of it just relaxing and enjoying this rare bit of time off before getting right back into the swing of things. (And I mean RIGHT back into things—I had a test yesterday and today I’m on the road performing with the University Concert Choir!)
Because my resident assistant (RA) duty nights are on Mondays this semester, and because there were quite a few students who decided to stay on campus over break, I was asked to stay on campus as well and remain on duty during the Monday of fall break. This was totally fine by me because I hadn’t planned on going home for break anyway and also because, well, I love being an RA! It can be a pretty hectic job from time to time, but it’s also one of the most rewarding things I’ve done during my time here at LMU.
