Boo bash allowed me to build communication skills and time management. I was able to communicate with residents. I was also able to take a leadership role. Telling others what to do, but most importantly I was able to learn from others on what was best for the hall. I was able to stay positive and I feel that it allowed be to stay calm and not stress over the event. The actual day of boo bash was amazing, but a little bit stressful. I loved seeing the kids, but it got a little bit overwhelmed when large groups arrived at the halls.

Today was the first day of volunteering. At first I was scared because I have never worked with middle school students before. It was a family game night. We did several of get to know each other games. We played the blanket game which had a good turn out. I helped separate the kids into two groups and they had to guess the name of the person sitting behind the blanket when the blanket was released. I was able to have fun with the youth and it reminded me of my old youth group.
