Busy, Busy Days!

Yesterday I attended the Miss Sonoma County Santa Breakfast which benefits the scholarship organization. It was a ton of fun to see a few familiar faces and meet some new ones! It was absolutely freezing outside so I was happy to spend the day indoors. My job was to sell raffle tickets and collect money with my dear friend, Christina. I think we did a great job! One of my favorite parts of the breakfast (besides when Snoopy came!!) was when I got to introduce myself on the microphone. Little things like that always get me excited. My parents even came to support me at the breakfast and they had a good time, too.

After the breakfast, I changed and then it was off to the Miss Solano orientation. I was really looking forward to meeting the wonderful Executive Directors of the Miss Solano and Miss Napa County scholarship pageants. They didn't disappoint! They were so welcoming and had a great powerpoint presentation that taught me a lot. Plus, their home was beautiful! I just wish I didn't have to leave so quickly. I am not sure if I have ever talked about my job, but I am a Community Services Advisor (CSA) here at my school. A CSA is basically a Resident Advisor, or RA, under a different name. I had to leave the orientation right away so I could be back on time to start my shift on call.

I also had a social program last night where my residents came for cookies and hot chocolate. We also had a contest. For every canned food or nonperishable food item you brought in, I would put your name into a raffle to win a $30 Target gift card. It was super successful and we collected a lot of food, which I will go donate this week. I was really proud of my residents for stepping up and being thoughtful citizens!

Now, today is just a recovery and catch up day before I start finals week tomorrow. Wish me luck! :)
