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

Back to Work!

I’m so glad to finally be back at Butler! I’ve been super busy with all my courses and extracurriculars! I decided to take a break from my homework to talk about what I’ve been up to!

For starters, I just joined the Butler Collegian, Butler’s student newspaper. It comes out every Wednesday and we put in a lot of work into making it perfect. I write for the news section! I’m also a member of College Democrats again and yesterday we started planning some awesome events for this upcoming year! Stay tuned to my blog for more about that!

I’m also pretty excited for all of my courses. I’m really excited about my Sportswriting class. Though I have a couple of favorite sports teams, I’m not much of a sports junkie so I’ve been consistently checking ESPN everyday just to get up to speed on the latest sports news.

Since today is the first home game of the football season, I thought I’d share a Butler football video I found online!

Happy Easter!

A lot of my friends went home for the Easter weekend so it has been a quiet weekend! The good part about it is that parking has been great! No more long walks in the parking lot! Well… At least for this week!

This week is the last week of classes and I couldn’t be happier. This school year has flown by so fast! It seems like just yesterday I had my map, trying to find my classes.

Last week I scheduled my classes for next year and I am excited! I finished all of my required classes so now I am going to start having courses more related to my major. I am most excited for my Sports Journalism class. It is definitely out of my comfort zone so I can’t wait to see how I do!

Cherishing Break

So it’s taking me a long time to process that break is almost over. With that being said, I’m cherishing every single minute I’m off. But, I’m having a hard time doing that with all the homework I have!

Since I have homework in five of my classes, I created the clever but simple plan of doing one assignment a day and I am pleased to say that I only have one left! Yesterday I worked on my art project where we had to make a collage of a self portrait of ourselves, with close attention to color and only using magazine cutouts. It took me a couple of hours but I am pleased with what I did!

Also, I was watching the news today and saw that the basketball team won today! Congrats and hopefully you guys take the tournament this year!

My finished project! It's hard to see but I seriously cut out hundreds of tiny strips of paper to make it

Five More Days

So there are five more days until Spring Break (Who’s counting anyway!?) and I am pretty excited! I’ve been getting a lot of stress headaches lately so this break will be much needed! Although I will be on vacation, my break will still consist of work because I have to read 350 pages of Gone With The Wind, which is 1,000 pages long, for my Civil War FYS class.

On Friday in FYS, the Civil War impersonator came back and discussed more concepts and ideas from the time period. He even chose me to come in front of the class and try on his uniform! I must say, the uniform was heavier than it looked! My teacher took pictures of it so when she sends them to me I’ll definitely post them to my blog!

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

I accidentally got to class half an hour early so what better way to pass the time than to take awkward photos of myself!?

Another Day, Another Assignment

Today I have my Inside Reporting class which I’m really excited for. It’s a one day a week class so since we started class on Tuesday last week, I haven’t been to it yet. Since it’s only on one day, it’s a 2.5 hour class. I’ve never had to sit in the same seat for so long! Hopefully it’ll be fun so my mind won’t be on the length. I like writing so I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Last night I got sick and thought that I would have to miss class. Thank goodness I felt better when I woke up. I haven’t missed a class all year and I didn’t want to start this semester that way. It was weird because I hardly ever get sick. Hopefully it doesn’t come back!

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment. I love getting in touch with readers.

Snow Paradise

I’m finally back at Butler and when I got here there was so much snow awaiting me! Yesterday it just wouldn’t stop snowing but I’m not complaining, I love snow! Maybe not too much but it’s good nonetheless.

So I was watching the news and there was a story about how the dates of the zodiac signs have changed and I usually don’t follow it but I’d just like to know my sign and think it’s fun. Well I was pleasantly disappointed to see that my sign changed and instead of being an Aries, I’m now supposedly a Pisces! I don’t like it one bit (haha)!

That’s all for today! Classes start Tuesday so hopefully it all goes well!

Unexpected Things

On Tuesday night my cellphone broke so Wednesday, after class, I had to go to the Apple store to receive a new one. I got it and all is well now. I am so lost without my phone!

Today on campus, free Slurpees were handed out. I know some people who got some but I sadly didn’t get to receive one because I had classes during the time they were handed out. Evidently they’re really good (I’ve never had one before).

Today was also an important day because I scheduled my classes for next semester! I met with my advisor yesterday so I could plan out which classes to take and luckily the classes I wanted weren’t taken up. The class I feel will be the most interesting is Ballroom Dancing. Yes, you read that correctly! It was one of the PE credit choices and I seized the opportunity because how many people do you know can say they know how to ballroom dance?

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

Happy Veteran’s Day!
