Team iPhone 5

As everyone knows, the iPhone 5 came out last week. And needless to say, I pre ordered it the day it was released. It shipped all the way from China and took a couple days to get here but it shipped to my house yesterday. Of course no one was home to get it from UPS but don’t worry, it’s being shipped to Butler so I should have it by today!

The look of defeat when I saw I wasn't getting my phone yesterday!

Today all of my classes were canceled so I can wait all day for it! I can’t wait to get it. I’ve already given it a pretentious name just for the heck of it. His name is Jacques (Yes, he’s French) and I can tell he’s going to be cool. Can’t wait until mail delivers today!

Olympics Basketball

Instead of being captivated by the swimming events in the Olympics, I’ve instead been heavily invested in watching the USA men’s basketball team in this year’s Olympics! I’ve been mostly enjoying it since we’ve been demolishing all of the teams we’ve played, which is great because I hate sitting through a whole game only for my team to lose. I also like it because it’s not every day that you see Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, who happen to be my two favorite basketball players, play on the same team.

Since I haven’t been watching all the other events, I have been trying to feel as though I’ve been supporting all the other athletes by checking the medal totals on Yahoo every day and as of right now the USA is tied with China with the most medals won. Hopefully by the end of the Olympics we will be able to pull away and win the most! As you can tell, the Olympics usually bring out the competitive side of me! Either we win or I’ll be a very unhappy camper!

Asian Adventure

For my East Asian Interactions class we were assigned to go to the Indianapolis Museum of Art and write about five different pieces of art from different Asian time periods. I’ve been to the IMA before with an art class so I knew what to expect but there were a lot of beautiful pieces! A group of four of us from class walked over to the museum since it was so close but we couldn’t stay and enjoy it for long since I had class right after.

It took us a while to find all five pieces but eventually we were able to get everything done in time for me to run back to class! I was a couple of minutes late but class hadn’t yet started so all was well! The weather was also really nice as well so I’m a little disappointed we couldn’t stay and look at all the exhibits. Oh well, I guess I’ll come back another time and bring my family!

Here is one of the more interesting pieces. It's supposed to be of a warrior from the Han dynasty.
