|Getting a Quick Break|
The leadership workshop was fun. Our dean, Mary-Grace Almandrez also made it to this event. Our first activity was to make decisions, and then we learned about the North, South, East, and West styles of leadership. To summarize, the North take action, the South listen to one another, the West are planners, and East are believers. I considered myslef as a West at first, but now I'm pretty positive that I am going to become an East. During our workshop people said that the East were probably not as strong as leaders as the others, and I agree. However, I believe that having an enthusiastic imagination in a team is necessary for a group to get excited about working. We made skits at the end of our workshop which were the funniest. Our skit was about making a plan for next year's W&L group. The South got into a circle and began talking about what they would do. It was amusing to see how they all accepted each others' opinions and respected their friendship. The North were pretty straightforward and on point. They felt like soldiers. And the West were the over thinkers of the situation. We were all trying to think of the perfect way to plan everything. By doing this, we were not being able to use our time efficiently since deadlines for us are scary. The skits were probably my favorite part, and off to dinner we went.
Dinner at the V Dub was new. It was our first day there, and they have a variety of food to serve, more than the Ratty. It is a longer walk, but the workshop was near the dining hall, a good 5 minutes. After eating, we all returned to our dorms, with our new classmate Yuki. Our walk back to our dorms was pretty tiring, but we made it. The first day was pretty tiring, so I'm hoping that I will get more sleep tonight.
