Tomorrow’s the BIG day!

I take my Chemistry final tomorrow and needless to say, I’m nervous. I studied all day and weekend so hopefully I do well! After my final I get to hit the road and go home. There has been a lot of snow and all of the schools in my county were canceled but I’m sure the snow will be cleaned up by the time I get home.

I recently went to an art exhibit on campus which showcased work by fellow Butler students. It was great seeing all of the talent on campus. I’m taking an art class next semester but I’m sure my work wouldn’t be able to compare since I’m not the most artistically inclined person around.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question!

Deciding on a Minor!

I’ve been trying all semester to determine on a minor but I’ve still been conflicted between two choices. Economics or History. I want to go to Law school so both would be good for what field of work I want to go into but I’ll decide soon! I’m really interested in both so that’s why it’s such a hard decision.

I have a paper due in Chemistry tomorrow over nutrition which shouldn’t be too hard. This year is actually the first year I’ve thoroughly enjoyed a science class! I really love the labs too because they give you a more hands on outlook on the material but go more in-depth than a typical high school lab assignment.

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog & feel free to leave a comment!

A Great Cloudy Day!

So the Blue Man Group came to Butler this past weekend to perform various shows at Clowes Hall. A lot of people were very excited to go and I regret not attending. Tickets sold out really fast so maybe next time!

Although today is a cloudy day….. I LOVE IT! Usually people dislike this kind of weather but I enjoy it because it’s not too hot and it’s not too cold. I also like today because it was just an overall good day.

I only had two classes today (which is good no matter what) and I understood everything in them! In Chemistry we reviewed for our test and I actually knew most of the answers. It’s probably because I studied all weekend because I have so much work to do this week. Also, in math, usually I’m lost because math isn’t my strongest subject but I also understood the material! I have two tests tomorrow so hopefully tomorrow can somehow be better than today!

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog! Feel free to leave a comment!

Waiting For Thanksgiving…!!!

Thanksgiving Break is in TWO weeks and I’m excited! Although I absolutely love being in class every day, I need a week off.

My dorm is offering free Harry Potter midnight tickets and is even providing transportation! I’m not a big fan, I’ve only read/seen the first book and movie, but it is still going to be fun. A lot of my friends in Chemistry are going so it should be fun going with them and getting up early the next morning for Chem lecture.

Since I haven’t seen the rest of the movies, over Thanksgiving break I plan on having a marathon of them to really get into the Potter spirit. I might even read the books……. Probably not! I do in fact like reading and I am thinking about purchasing President Bush’s new book which came out today. Although I don’t agree with his policies, I think it would be interesting to get his perspective on things. I try to keep an open mind when it comes to politics.

That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions about student life at Butler or other inquiries!

The Chicago Marathon and Ireland

This week I have to write three papers. Instead of procrastinating, I actually finished two of them already! I had to write one paper for Chemistry about how I would help the environment if I were elected to be President. It had to be 4-5 pages and actually didn’t take that long to write because I’ve always wanted to be President so I just wrote out what I’ve always wanted to do! :)

I then wrote a “Personality Profile” for my Writing for Print Media class. I chose to write about my friend Jill who recently ran the Chicago Marathon. I just visited her this past weekend at IU so I got to interview her then and it went well! The last paper, which I will write tonight or tomorrow, is for my First Year Seminar class. I think I am going to write about how “The Troubles” in Ireland affected children. I have to defend my case using two of the texts we have read in class.

This weekend I am going home because I have to get a haircut. I can’t wait to see my friends and family! Last time I went home I had so much fun!

That’s all for today! The elections are tomorrow and I’m sad because I’m still 17 so I’m not old enough to vote yet. :( But at least I can vote in the Presidential election in two years! :)

This is me and some of my friends the last time I went home. It was at the Homecoming football game.

This Weekend!

I am excited! Tonight I am going to see the performance of Eurydice at Lilly Hall, which houses the music school. I am also going on a retreat this weekend with Butler’s Cru. It is Butler’s Christian group. I will be driving two other people to the retreat in my car.

One perk that Butler provides that many other schools don’t is that Freshmen are allowed to have cars on campus. It definitely comes in handy when I’m out of water or floss!

Tomorrow should be a pretty easy day. I only have two classes tomorrow and no tests (thankfully!). Next week is fall break and the week after that is HOMECOMING! I think I will go to the boys soccer game against Loyola Chicago since some of my friends attend the school and may come to the game!

That’s all for today!

This is where most freshmen will live (Ross Hall). It holds mostly guys but there is one floor of girls.

Busy as a Bee!

This week for me is going to be very busy!

Today I got my Chemistry test back and got an A which wasn’t a bad way to start off the day. I then had a math test and got another pleasant surprise that we do not have math class for the rest of the week!

But, now I have a lot to do in the rest of my classes. I have to prepare an interview for my Writing for Print Media Class, take a Spanish Quiz, read 100 pages for my First Year Seminar (FYS) course and write two papers for FYS.

Tonight I am attending a College Democrats meeting and I may go on a walk at night to ease some of the stress. One thing about Butler, there is ALWAYS something to do!

Butler Life!

Being a Bulldog is so much fun! My classes are fun but some are challenging. But the best thing is all the new people to meet. The great thing about this campus is the fact that it’s nice and everyone treats each other as a family. It reminds me of my high school. Both my high school and Butler stress the same things: family environment, academics, & fun. There are always activities in which one can go to. Butler started the “Good Clean Fun Initiative” which has a Facebook page. This is designed to allow students to participate in positive yet fun activities almost every day.

The major things coming up this week for me are my Chemistry test and my paper due in Writing for Print Media. I’m not too worried about my test because I had a good background in Chemistry in high school so hopefully it helps me now.I have to write an obituary, morbid I know, about a celebrity. I am thinking of doing it on either Amy Winehouse or Jack Johnson (even though I love them both as artists).

For questions about Butler feel free to leave a comment or to visit the school’s webpage.

I’ll also try to make a “Random Butler Photo of the Day” just to show different places and sights on campus.
