Over Achieving Boredom

So finals are coming up this week and luckily for me I only really have one actual exam and the rest are just writing final papers. Since I want to make the most of my relaxation time. So that means this weekend I have been  unnecessarily  finishing most of my papers for classes so next week I won’t have much to do.

Since I’ve been doing all of my assignments so awkwardly early, I’ve been using a lot of my free time to browse the web and see what I find. One of the things I’ve found a new pasion for are stop motion videos. They involve so much work and effort to make that it amazes me whenever I see intricate ones. This is one of my favorites:

Hopefully one day, with enough patience, I will be able to make one too.

It’s Finals! Getting Down With Finals!

Hopefully “Friday” is now stuck in your head!

Finals are almost over which is very exciting because it means no more tests. As soon as my final is over I have to head back to my dorm and check out and return my keys and then I’m heading home, never to return until the start of next semester!

I’ve been procrastinating and just started studying yesterday. But, I technically consider it getting ahead! Who says studying three days ahead is procrastinating!?

So while my attention should be focused on finals, I can’t help but be excited for the upcoming new show The X Factor. It’s like a new version of American Idol & is coming to FOX this year. And one of my favorite celebrities, Cheryl Cole, is supposed to be a judge on the show which makes it even better! Plus, it has Simon Cowell! How can you go wrong there!?

Here’s one of the commercials for the new show!

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!

Thanksgiving is Almost Upon Us!

This upcoming week is the last week before Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be any happier! On Friday, after my last class, I’m going home. I have three exams this week, which is kind of the downside of it all. But, I just have to keep reminding myself that in less than a week I’ll be in the comfort of my own bed!

So I’ve recently been obsessed with Italy lately. One thing I plan to tackle in my lifetime is to learn how to speak Italian (after I conquer Spanish first!). I visited Italy this summer and I fell in love with it. I’d definitely love to live in Rome for a year. :)

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog! Feel free to leave a comment asking me about Freshman year and Butler life!
