Tuesday night we watched the movie “Django Unchained” in my room from 8:00 – 11:00 PM. It is a three hour movie and covers issues of slavery and pre-Civil War southern America, especially Kentucky. We all enjoyed the movie and afterwards discussed the irrationality of slavery and how horrible it was for slaves and the affects that has on today. Overall a successful and fun movie night.
There is a board next to the mirror now in 1 South and it displays the top 10 movie quotes of all time according to toptens.com, stop by and check it out!
There is a new bulletin board on the wing that has all different song titles that have the word “who” in them and the songs for the most part include finding yourself and staying true to who you are. Stop by and check out the songs and start jamming!
Sometimes it is tricky to understand all the Acronyms we have for different organizations on campus. So there is now a bulletin board that not only has what those organizations are, but gives a detailed description of what they are useful for and where they are located here on campus.
Are you stressed out? Then come to Brockert Hall 1 South and pop a few bubbles on the bulletin board right inside the door. It helps out a lot!
On October 18th, 1 south went out into the circle after attending hall council and played ultimate Frisbee in the dark with a light up Frisbee. It was pretty cool because it had different light modes, so it could flash, or have the lights on full time. We had a great time and fun was had by all. We were accompanied by Jarren from the 3 South Wing and he knew how to play Ultimate Frisbee better than most of us. Unfortunately, pictures would have just been really dark and not worked out so we did not take one.
On Wednesday the 11th of Homecoming Week, Reverse Water Tug took place in the pool at the P.A.C. This competition was had by tying two canoes together and then paddling opposite ways to get the other team pulled across the line so we could win. Brockert had two teams, and both one at least pull. But after team 2 lost, the first team went the rest of the time. They ran the table from the losing bracket and pulled themselves all the way into the championship bracket. Unfortunately they lost, but we still placed second so I would consider it a success!
On Tuesday the 10th of October, Solomon, Scott, and Josh went and participated in the Mud Tug of War competition for Brockert Hall. They gave it their best, winning the first game but then losing the last two games and falling out of the bracket. Regardless, fun was had by all and we all got messy!
The night of October 6th, Brockert 1 South had a movie night in my room. We first went to GWAM and got treats such as Sour Patch Kids and Freal’s. We decided since everyone had exam’s this week we would watch a movie with a lighter tone to help everyone feel better. Thus we chose the cult classic, Hot Rod. Hot Rod is about a failing stuntman trying to find his way in society while staying true to who he is while also living up to his step-dad and trying to prove his worth. While the movie has some hilarious slap stick comedy, it has very serious undertones. Overall it was a success.
