So over fall break I decided to visit my friend Hayley who goes to Loyola in Chicago. We hung around her apartment for a bit and then went shopping at H&M (of course) downtown. It’s funny because I already have an order on its way from H&M already but I just can’t be stopped.
Afterwards we went to a Loyola basketball pep rally for their new season. It was cute I guess but it just didn’t compare to the celebrations we throw at Butler! It was interesting to see how other schools celebrate and to see their gymnasium. Plus I got a free T-Shirt and got to take a picture with their mascot so it ended up being fun!
Being there did make me excited for the Butler basketball season! I can’t wait to be front row in the Dawg Pound to support our Dawgs this year, especially since it’s my last year!

Over the fall break weekend I drove to Chicago to visit my friend Hayley, who goes to Loyola. The weather was extremely rainy and cold so I had to bundle up and drive carefully to get there!
On my way there!
Hayley had a dance performance at Loyola’s new performing arts center so I was happy to attend and show my support! It was part of one of her dance classes and they did a modern dance routine and I was definitely impressed!
After her performance, we went downtown to go shopping! I needed to go to Apple to get a new phone charger and to H&M to get a new sweater for the cold weather! But first we stopped by Macy’s and there I saw Nicki Minaj‘s new perfume/fragrance stand so of course I had to take a picture! I didn’t buy any since it’s for girls but I at least smelled it.
Overall, I had a fun time and can’t wait to go back to the Windy City (literally since the weather was so awful)!
I am finally back at Butler and I am pretty excited. It was so fun being able to relax at home but now I am ready to get back into the swing of things. I had to write so many papers this weekend I am about to run over to the computer lab before the printer runs out of ink or paper.
The biggest thing I am excited for is that my favorite show, The Walking Dead, has its season premiere tonight! It is about a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of people trying to survive it. There are going to be new characters this season and a new setting so I am pretty excited. I am going to try to force my friend Karleen to watch it with me since I get creeped out watching it by myself!

I’ve only been home for a day for fall break but I already miss Butler! Don’t get me wrong, I love being home, but it is just that my communication to the outside world has drastically decreased. Since I don’t get any cellphone service at home, my communication is severely limited to Wi-Fi or getting a couple bars when I run errands. It’s like I’m living in the 12th century.
Last night, I was able to watch television for the first time in seemingly ages. The only thing I watched was the Vice Presidential debate. I thought both candidate did very well and I definitely learned that Joe Biden is not scared to speak his mind! He was clearly the most colorful of the two candidates. Hopefully this debate was an indicator of how the next presidential debate will be.
Here’s the debate from last night
Today marks the first day of fall break and instead of leaving last night, I left in this morning because I was on duty at Resco, which means I have to stay in the building in case a student gets locked out of their room. It was as quiet as a mouse and only saw two of my residents! Seemingly everyone left during the day for break!
Now that I am home, one of the first things I did was to get a haircut! Now that that’s over, I am currently snuggled up in bed watching Goldfinger since everyone I know stresses how good of a movie it is. Hopefully this break remains as relaxing as it has started off!
Abby and I on duty!
