I could get used to this skyline (at Navy Pier)

A mother lost her child. A father lost his son. A young man lost his life. #JusticeForMikeBrown
omgsh I’m so sorry! I’m awful. and tumblr is awful, it did not tell me I had a message on either of my blogs.
You’re right I did see the question on my other blog first, but since I think you only follow this blog (?) imma answer your questions from there on here.
OMG YAY 406!!!! Seriously a great room, and your RA Jess is fantastic and such a sweetheart. You’re gonna have a great year.
(on my other blog she asked how we set up 406 when I lived there. I’m not just going into this long description to be obnoxious)
So the room is a little oddly shaped. It’s kind of a stumpy square c that encircles the bathroom. Basically you walk in and you have a little foyer (we use foyer cause we’re fancy b*tches) then you’ll take a left and it’ll be your main space, bathroom will be on your left, then take another left at the end of the room and you’ve got your bonus space. There’s also a very obnoxious pillar in the far right corner of the room.
When I lived there (and actually my residents who lived in 406 did this too) we shoved all four beds (which were in bunk bed mode) into the bonus space area. We also had two of the dressers in there on either end. Then we built a wall of wardrobes from the pillar on to kind of make it a separate bedroom and living room area.
In our main space we had a little love seat, the tv, all four desks, and another wardrobe. I believe you get two wardrobes and there are two closets. The closets, of course, are bigger and much more convenient than the wardrobes but, eh, such is life.
In the bathroom there is a pretty nice big closet with shelves. A tiny-shitty-stand-only shower. It will be a pain in the ass to shave your legs for the entire year. I suggest a stool. You also have a medicine cabinet.
That room is amazing. It has the greatest view of the library and the Wisconsin Club. You can see some pictures of it in this post from 8 million years ago. Actually that post will be three years old in about two weeks. god that’s weird.
For my service learning I was at the Aids Resource Center of Wisconsin working for their needle exchange program. I loved it. It was probably one of the more controversial placements in the group. Basically what the program does is exchanges clean needles for dirty needles. So opiate users would come in with all of their used needles and they got 10 free clean needles for every dirty one. This cuts down in sharing needles and it ensures that the dirty needles get disposed of properly. These kinds of programs have done some serious good. We also provided free Narcan along with training on how to use it. Narcan is a drug that can stop an overdose in its tracks.
I don’t know much about the two sites you mentioned in your other ask but I’m guessing if you really put some effort into your site and get to know the people that work there and use the service then you are going to get a lot out of your site. And don’t forget to reflect. We’re Jesuits. We like our reflecting.
