Computer Learning Month

Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat are apps where we live our lives, but do you remember when laptops, tablets, and flip phones were new? They all evolved after desktop computers became commonplace and changed the world. October is Computer Learning Month, and in honor of that, we encourage members of our apartment community to learn something new — try a new app, learn a new program, build a new website — it’s all about the technology!

Make a Difference Day (Oct 27)

Letter blocks that spell Chance changing into Change

Everyone on this earth has an influence on someone else, and if you don’t believe that, just think about the people who have had an influence on you. It probably wasn’t always something or even someone you knew for very long. Similarly, you can make a difference in the world and in someone else’s life. Make it positive and make it count by being more aware of others, always treating people with respect, standing up for people who are hurting, and enacting positive change.

Book Suggestions

All These Beautiful Strangers  by Elizabeth Klehfoth

“In the last day of summer, Grace Fairchild, the beautiful young wife of real estate mogul Allister Calloway, vanished from the family’s lake house without a trace, leaving behind her seven-year-old daughter, Charlie, and a slew of unanswered questions.”

Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

“Mary Shelley began writing Frankenstein when she was only eighteen. At once a Gothic thriller, a passionate romance, and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science, Frankenstein tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein. Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts but; upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature's hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator, Frankenstein.”
