Yesterday Andrew and myself went and gave blood. We each saved 3 lives and felt great about it not to mention we also got a $5 amazon gift card and a free t-shirt! I encourage everyone to either give blood or volunteer. Thank you Andrew for going with me!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! The grumpy cat valentines that are on your doors are made to give you a laugh and for you to remember that you always have a valentine somewhere, you may just not have found them yet.
This is a question that most people don’t get asked. I want to see what everyone would attempt without the worry of failing. Even though you are worried about failing some things you may be able to do. Be sure to write down your thoughts and read what others have wrote on the yellow paper outside my door.
There is a new bulletin board up on the wing! This board is Valentine’s Day themed and contains information on domestic violence. It contains information on what signs to look for and what a healthy relationship looks like. The big hearts on the board are made from fake rose petals to give it more of a valentine’s day flair. Please be sure to check it out and read the information and remember that I am always here if you need to talk.
On February 12th, Monti Washington did a talk in velzy commons about how he went from the streets to the stage. He told us about how he had a rough childhood and went from foster home to foster home but he didn’t let that define him. He knew that he could be whatever he wanted when he grew up and continued onto college where he graduated with honors. I learned that there are a lot of people that have/are going through the same things as you and that you can’t feel alone or let the way that others think of you define who you are. He also told us to get a career because “job” means just over broke. The quote that stood out the most to me was:
“Do not compare yourself to someone else’s social media highlight reel”
Don’t be afraid to work hard and go from the streets of your fears to the stage of your dreams.
