A Typical Saturday

My schedule really depends on a few different things. I may be engaged in Service Saturday, jobs, personal time, and going off campus.

  • 8:30 am: Go to the lodge early for breakfast.
  • 10:30 am: Early lunch.
  • 11:30 am: Sometimes I have a job to do. I get picked up, go into town, and get dropped off at the house where I’m working. The majority of what i’ve been doing is raking pine needles, pine cones, weeds, cleaning houses, moving furniture, cleaning up.
    Sometimes I go off campus on Safeway trips or to plays or shows that are organized by Eagle Rock staff. I’ll get back before dinner, and go to play board games or cards, and sometimes I watch movies, clean my area, do laundry.
  • 5:00 pm: Dinner.
  • 6:00 pm: Hang out, go to the LRC to use the computers, play basketball.
  • 10:00 pm: I might have night clean. The house parent house is usually not open on Saturday night so I’ll watch movies in the commons.
  • 10:30 pm: House Curfew.
  • 11:00 pm: Wing Curfew.
