Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).
The old saying goes that “two is always better than one” and that is what happened at Stand-Up Saturday! On Saturday March 4, CPR brought in not one, but TWO stand-up comedians to the Markee. First up was the hilarious two-time Last Comic Standing finalist Maggie Faris. Immediately following Maggie was the world-renowned comedian, and magician, Ben Seidman. As you can see the Crossing was quite packed! Pickard’s 1 West Nathan can be seen wearing a purple cap and sitting with other Pickard residents.
Thank you to Ross, Megan, and Maegan for accompanying me to Stand-Up Saturday we had a great time laughing and relieving all the stress that has built up due to midterms. They say laughter is the best medicine. So the next time Stand-Up Saturday happens (April 1) bring your friends to the Markee for a laugh.
Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others.
It is generally said to include three skills:
1. Emotional awareness, including the ability to identify your own emotions and those of others;
2. The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problems solving;
3. The ability to manage emotions, including the ability to regulate your own emotions, and the ability to cheer up or calm down another person.
For more information on emotional intelligence, look at this bulletin board just outside room 129.
Thank you everyone who stopped by Pickard Hall tonight from 7:30 to 9:30 to enjoy our haunted trail and our NEW escape room! It was a huge success! All proceeds will be going to the Wounded Warriors Project. A very special shout out to all the wonderful ladies and gentlemen who acted, set-up, led tours, and served food at this event.
