Music Monday: Butler War Song

So I’ve been spending my first day home from Butler YouTubeing Butler videos, lame I know, and have been catching up on all my Butler news in social media. I’m getting Butler withdrawals already! I’ve also probably been getting the Butler Blues (no pun intended) since I’m not going to be on campus next semester because of my internship.

While on my YouTube spree, I stumbled across this precious video of the dearly departed Butler Blue 2. The video shows him waking up when the Butler war song plays and it’s very funny. But who can blame him? It’s a catchy tune!

The Return

Today I made the journey back to Butler. And after listening to the Lana Del Rey album, twice, I finally made it back! Needless to say, campus is extremely creepy and quiet right now. I have been desperately trying to find people to no success! The positive, the laundry room is all mine!! I’m definitely taking advantage of it before all the people start to pour in.

During the day when I had free time, I decided to rearrange my room. It took a while since all of the furniture is so heavy and I had so much stuff but I eventually got it the way I want. I also vacuumed my room for the second time this year so I think I’m turning a new leaf in my life for the better, being clean!

The mess that was my room before I got it organized.

Missing Butler

I’ve been away from campus for less than three days and already I miss it! Don’t get me wrong, I love my home and family but I miss my room and all the people! I even made a Twitter and Instagram on Monday just to keep in touch and creep on everyone but, in typical André fashion, I deleted them because I got tired of it all. It’s just too much for me to handle!

To keep my mind off things, I went shopping. I got so many nice clothes at the mall today and I’m definitely considering it an early Christmas present to myself, just in case the world actually ends on Friday. I’m mostly going to miss my friend Karleen! She got me a really nice sweater and shirt for J Crew so I definitely had to return the favor when I went shopping today!

Wearing my new sweater! Thanks Karlz!

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!

Today was nice and calm considering half of campus went home for the holiday and extended weekend. I stayed since I had a lot of homework and assignments to get done so hopefully I can go home pretty soon. My days have been very productive so that has been good.

Last night I had my first insomnia cookie and needless to say it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. I had a regular chocolate chip cookie and I can’t wait to have another!

To celebrate the Labor Day holiday, instead of taking a break from work, I ended up finishing all of my assignments for the upcoming week that i’ve been assigned so far.

My labor day celebration! AKA homework! yay!

Couldn’t Stay Away

Today was sort of an off day since students weren’t moving in today so I had a lot of free time to get laundry done and run errands. Campus was actually pretty quiet today, which I’m sure will change really soon once everyone moves in tomorrow! But as of right now, things are pretty calm.

Since I was a little bored, I decided to visit my old stomping grounds at the Collegian. It was so great seeing everyone and catching up. I guess I couldn’t even stay away for a week! I had to quit this semester since I am starting as an RA but it was definitely weird being in the office and not having to do anything for a change. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit again soon during the semester!

Lauren and I reunited in the Collegian office!

Favorite Campus Spot

The other day I was thinking about what my favorite place on campus would be and I’d have to say it’s Holcomb Gardens. I actually like it for various reasons but the biggest reason is that it’s a place where you can study quietly outside. At certain times it doesn’t get much people traffic so it’s great to just lay out on the grass and get work done.

But I also love the fact that it’s right next to the Monon Trail so you can even use it to go running on a nice day. A lot of sports go on there as well so it’s really a multi-use kind of place. I’m thinking of bringing a bike to campus this year just so I can ride it on the trail in the gardens.

Ten Best Things About Being Back At Butler

I decided for today’s blog post, I’d make a list of my top ten favorite things about being back on campus! There were so many things, it was hard to cut it down to ten but here it goes:

1. Finally being reunited with all my friends!

2. Having an air conditioned dorm

3. Starting new classes and meeting new people

4. Getting to go to Starbucks every day

5. Randomly seeing Butler Blue 2 on campus

6. Going to see different events at Clowes Hall

7. Getting my weekly workout in at the HRC

8. Getting chased by awkwardly obese squirrels

9.  Going to sports games (Especially basketball!)

10. Participating in all the new organizations I’m part of

Here’s a cool video of this year’s freshman class forming a Bulldog during Welcome Week

Back at Butler!

I made it back to Butler today! After Church I immediately came back and I’m glad I did because I got a really good parking spot! I got the last one and it made my day. :) As you can tell, I get excited easily. I love that Butler allows freshmen to have cars on campus!

Today I kind of got out the first things out of my closet and then I looked in the mirror and realized it was my old high school uniform! It definitely took me back but I’m perfectly fine being at Butler without wearing the same thing everyday.

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Random Photo of the Day:

This is my high school uniform! The shirt was supposed to be tucked in but I was being a rebel that day! Don't pay attention to the awkwardness of the pic! I was on the phone/caught off guard!
