Music Monday: Jack Johnson

Last night I got a great amount of rest and was really energized and for some reason the song “Brighter Than The Sun” by Colbie Caillat was stuck in my head. Needless to say, I was in an awkwardly good mood and still am. Then I found myself on YouTube looking up her music and eventually I stumbled into some newer Jack Johnson stuff. I ended up buying his new album since it was the only album of his I don’t have and now I’ve been listening to him all morning. Sorry Colbie.

There are too many Jack Johnson songs that I love to choose a favorite but for today’s Music Monday I picked “Sitting, Waiting, Wishing” since it’s the one song of his I’m always in the mood for. His songs always make me feel like I’m just laying in a hammock on the beaches of Hawaii with not a care in the world. I love it. It’s now a goal of mine to listen to Jack Johnson on the beach, in a hammock, by a palm tree.

Banner Contest

So ResCo held a Halloween banner contest where each unit could decorate a banner and each unit has to compete against each other. My residents spent hours on it and the finished product was amazing! Everyone in the hallway pooled together supplies and resources such as paint, colored paper, brushes, and decorations. The theme of the banner had to have a mix of Butler, your unit, and Halloween themes.

The winner was supposed to be announced on Halloween but after a power outage that made the whole building literally have to spend the night in the dining hall, it wasn’t. We didn’t get to return to our building until 4 AM which was extremely inconvenient but at least classes in one of the academic buildings was canceled. The winner still hasn’t been announced but we’re waiting with crossed fingers that it was our unit. The winning unit wins a pizza party so we’ll see who reigns supreme.
