Meeting Minutes, Jan. 31st, 2016

SOTU: It is a sunny winter day. The birds are chirping the songs of love and kindness. A thief in the night stole Andrew's only pair of shoes–let's put our heads together and try to rustle something up for his bare, blistering feet. He will not survive the winter without our help.

HERE: Marty; Andrew, Devon, Luke, Liesl, Becca, Emily (visiting), Evan, Fletcher, Ada, Jamie (visiting), Molly (visiting), Olama (visiting), Josh, Jonathan (visiting), Cameron, Ezra, Adam (visiting)

THORNS: fucked up sleep cycle; social obligations; exhausted and cannot do anything anymore; this past week was insane and my room is a mess; still have no groceries; hard time finding good classes; woke up this morning and somebody had stolen my shoes and i only have one pair of shoes; also searching for classes also my chin is raw cause i was smooching but also didn't bring donuts; glibness and concert ticket prices; writing is live, first semester where i have to take requirements, too much reading, class, i just want to do theatre; left peppermint tea in my house! i think my character is midsummer is making me more clumsy, i have knocked mary martha down and bruised my knee; forgetfulness and the sticky note on my desk which is a to-do list which just keeps gettin' longer; the show i'm in is a weird thing, we're becoming our characters; having things to do where people are counting on you and feeling apathetic about them and feeling stressed out by not doing them, have to be responsible for my own food; if i don't get into this writing class, my schedule gets super messed up; forgotten that healing is a process that requires steps backwards to get where you're going, having this feeling where i need to tell someone something but i can't find the right time or the right words.

ROSES/IRMAS: wonderful, lovely people in life, got seven pairs of underwear in the mail; didn't expect donuts but they are here; (long pause…) this little cat that has dog ears temmie; school is starting; donuts are here, had breakfast; had a freshman night and partied; seeing cabaret at PPAC this afternoon; been enjoying being here, nice to see everyone and be in providence; reconnecting with a friend i thought i had lost, this video of Australian orchestra on a boat and whales breach and the orchestra is amazed; audacity and liesl's haircut, my roommates and i found a dartboard!; i seem happy, don't know what that's about–JOY; character in midsummer is a clown and it's fun to have that energy in me; got to spend time with my roommates this weekend; don't have classes before three pm any day!; fletcher's hair, my roommates and i had fancy dinner at hemenways, exchanged secret santa gifts and got toe socks wow; i had a freshmen year weekend, not the actual content, the shared experience; tossed salad??? mixed fruit???

  2. do we want to buy guard rails?
    1. keston got a quote from venger, plats company, they are $5,000-$6,000
  3. we are getting the same plats as we have
  4. officially we need to have rails! according to santucci, we are required to have rails– ada will argue this point to UFB
  5. what do we say when they ask us why we havent been using rails? we do use them when the plats are high enough.
  6. plats and rails are going to cost $21,800, shipping included–should we ask for them for them to pay for all of it? in the past, they have paid 2/3.
  7. other argument: if we buy new plats, we can bring old plats in the upspace, so we don't damage plats by bringing them upstairs
