and the plinky is…what I like most about my job!

Let me first say that I feel like student affairs is my calling. I am drawn to and feel connected to the ethics and values of this field and cannot imagine myself doing anything else. Here are a few highlights of my favorite things, student affairs edition:

  • hugs — we are a caring field
  • saying things like cognitive dissonance and having people understand
  • asking someone to tell me more about that
  • sitting in my discomfort
  • knowing how I know
  • teachable moments
  • being able to problem solve at 3 am in fuzzy pajamas
  • laughing with my staff
  • “stupid” ice breakers that do their job
  • living in community with a constantly changing population of amazing folks

There are so many more…but here’s a good start!

Thanks, Plinky!

until next time, ekg
