I don't know why it's hitting me tonight, but the year is coming to a close, and tomorrow I say goodbye to my first flamingo. In case anybody doesn't know, I am currently (for a week more) a don of residence, also known as a CA, RA, or what-ever-else-you-can-call-it. I look after a community of approximately 36 students known as the Holmes Flamingoes.
When I first got assigned the role of the flamingoes, I didn't really want them, because I thought the mascot was girly, and wouldn't be as bad-ass as I wanted; boy was I wrong. These flamingoes have proven me wrong time and time again, coming out to events, being respectful to one another, representing the house, and doing a lot of crazy other stuff that I'm not even going to go into...
It's definitely been one of the best experiences of my life; Brock University RLS. You have two families working as a don - your students (the Holmes Flamingoes) and the other dons. The memories, and friends I've made are indescribable, and I recommend the experience highly to everyone.
To the Flamingoes: thank you for making this year so awesome. We might have had our differences at times, and there have been some times where I've had to enforce the ungodly amount of noise coming from the 4th floor, but I will always remember you guys as the most bad-ass, awesomely cool, crazy-sweet, all-around-great house in DeCew; you're call yourselves badgers, but you're definitely flamingoes.
