Final Week!

This week is the final week of classes and I couldn’t be more excited! Butler has definitely been a fun experience and I cannot wait until my years to come! I really hope my future years don’t go by as fast.

The only bad part about the year ending is that finals are rapidly approaching! Luckily for me, I only have one final during finals week. The rest of my classes either don’t have a final or are having it this week. My final is on the last day of finals (just my luck!) so I’ll be slowly but surely moving my stuff back home slowly during the week.

I’m going to miss so much about campus during the summer! I’m going to miss all the people, all my classes, and all the Pepsi, since Butler is a Pepsi campus!

The thing I’ll miss most is randomly seeing Blue 2 in Starbucks in the mornings! He better stay rowdy for when I get back!

Happy Birthday Blue!

Friday was Butler’s mascot, Blue‘s, birthday! He turned seven in human years, which is 49 in dog years I think, so he’s getting to be an old little fella! The party for him was held in Starbucks and I’ve never seen it more packed! There were also many prospective students and their parents in attendance. It was definitely a good day to take a tour!

I made sure to force my way to the front of the crowd because I saw the guy from Fox news filming. I never miss an opportunity to be on the news! We all sang happy birthday and participated in eating all the free cookies. There was a contest to guess the correct number of dog treats in a bowl and the winner got a Starbucks gift card.

Blue tried running away twice while we all were singing to him. He’s probably sick of all the paparazzi following him!

Blue and his owner on his big day! He was definitely getting rowdy in his party hat!

Freshmen Skits

On Friday night, everyone on campus crowded into Hinkle Fieldhouse to see the Freshmen Skits! For those not familiar with it, it is where all the fraternities and sororities put on skits for the schools to a theme where judges decide who wins and best went along with the theme. This year’s theme was “Blue Goes to Hollywood!” The event was three hours long but was TOTALLY worth it!

One of the highlights of the night was when the freshmen from TKE threw out pieces of fried chicken to the audience! I really hope whoever caught them didn’t eat it (Who knows how long they had it!)! It was definitely one of the more humorous performances.

After much deliberation the two winning houses ended up being Phi Psi (for guys) and Alpha Phi (for girls)! I think they were both well-deserving of the win and I can’t wait to attend next year!

That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment and thanks for visiting!

A Very Blue Day

So on Friday morning I started my day like most and went to Starbucks on campus. While I was waiting in line, our own Butler celebrity, Blue the bulldog, stopped by to say hello! He was of course hounded by the paparazzi, me included, and was so nice. He definitely makes me want a bulldog.

I even tweeted about the encounter and he tweeted me back! You can follow Blue on twitter here, and you can follow me on Twitter here.

Friday was also good because I got most of my homework done. I planned on going to the basketball game Saturday night against Detroit but I totally forgot! I’m going to make sure I go to the next guys home game that is on a weekend. The good news is that we won. Another team bites the dust!
