There is a brand new board in the elevator bay. For this one we decided to do one on the different zodiac signs. Each one contains information about the personalities of the different signs as well as what months they are. They give general information about each sign such as their birthstone, color, season, and keywords about them. Be sure to take a look at it and see if the keywords for your sign match the way you describe yourself. I also encourage you to see what your friends are because everyone is different.
This new board talks about the Native American tribes that used to make up what is now Idaho. Even though we live in Wisconsin, I think it is valuable and interesting to learn about other state’s history. Idaho was made up of many different tribes. This board contains a map of Idaho with the sections that each tribe had. It also contains information on each tribe that is listed on the map and there are some pictures of the Native American tribes. Overall, this is a really neat board and I suggest that you stop by and look at it and learn about the Native Americans that used to make up Idaho.
Have you ever wondered if a Barbie body is actually possible? If so you should check out the board on the wing that talks about it. Almost everyone strives for that perfect skinny body like Barbie but it may not actually be possible. To find out if it is you will have to read the board. This board contains information on Barbie’s measurements versus a human, how different her body is compared to ours using a statistical method, and a close look at Barbie’s body. While I was making this board I found it very interesting and some parts were even funny. I encourage everyone to read it and figure out for yourself if a Barbie body is possible.
Do you know the symptoms of cold and flu? Are you able to tell the difference between the two? Cold and flu symptoms are very similar and are hard to tell the difference between. You can have symptoms of both at the same time. This new board helps differentiate the symptoms between the two. The purple minion and information in purple represent the flu whereas the yellow represents the cold. It also contains information on what you can do to prevent yourself from becoming sick. Be sure to check out this board and learn which symptoms go with what sickness.
There is a new board on the wing that contains tips for job interviews. These tips are very helpful in the sense that these are things that you may not be told. This board contains information on the interview process, the top 10 interview mistakes (so you can avoid them), the 13 best questions to ask your interviewer (since asking questions is important), and a list of 34 questions that you may be asked and how to answer them. At this point some of you may have interviews coming up and others may not but no matter where you are at I encourage you to read this board and even take pictures so that you can remember all of this wonderful information.
Tonight was cake walk. The way cake walk works is you walk in a circle to music and once the music stops a number is drawn. If you are the lucky one standing on the number that was called you win! After collecting your winning ticket, you get to go across the hall and pick out any dessert you want! This is not an easy choice with so many different cakes, cupcakes, breads, and more to choose from. If you want a chance at one of the fancier cakes, cheesecake, or other items you can play our special dollar round. There were definitely plenty of good desserts this year and we had a great turn out. We ended up having a total of 94 people come and made over $350 for the Grant County Humane Society and Southwest Hall!!! Even though the weather was crappy, we had a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone that took a break from studying or came down to relax and win some delicious desserts. We couldn’t have done it without you!
I made lollipop ghosts for everyone on the wing. These ghosts are a fun treat and remind you of when you were a kid. They were also super easy to make! I went to each door and handed them out on Monday and everyone was really excited about them. I hope everyone enjoys them. Happy Halloween!
