Stop the hate

Last night, we attended the stop the hate session that taught us about the laws for hate and bias incidents and crimes. It was really cool to learn the difference. For example, just verbally calling someone gay would be an incident, but writing it in a book where it would cause monetary damage would be a crime. The most important thing I gained from this session is based off of the pyramid of hate which I’ve included a picture of. It was explained to us that if you are throwing a ball at a pyramid, trying to knock it down, you aim at the bottom, which is why we as students, RA’s, friends, and peer, need to stop the simple acts of bias before it gets worse. If you hear someone make an innapropriate joke, tell them that’s not cool.

Dinner with residents

This week, Sarah and I took two of our residents out to dinner at bridgeway. We started talking about a lot of different things like classes and work, but ended up talking about relationships, and they types of people we liked. It was cool to see how different we all were in regards to what we liked, but that we all still got along well! We hope to be able to go out with them again!

Hey, 4 South!

Just wanted to put this up as a reminder to all of you that it doesn’t matter how amazing you do in school if you’re saying inappropriate things or posting inappropriate pictures on social media. This was confirmed by one of my co-workers back home who was the boss in a food company. Before hiring someone, they would check for certain things on social media and it doesn’t matter how protect your account is or what you delete; there are always ways around and it’s always there forever. This is not to scare you, but just to tell you, keep in mind your future career goals when on social media.
