So ResCo held a Halloween banner contest where each unit could decorate a banner and each unit has to compete against each other. My residents spent hours on it and the finished product was amazing! Everyone in the hallway pooled together supplies and resources such as paint, colored paper, brushes, and decorations. The theme of the banner had to have a mix of Butler, your unit, and Halloween themes.
The winner was supposed to be announced on Halloween but after a power outage that made the whole building literally have to spend the night in the dining hall, it wasn’t. We didn’t get to return to our building until 4 AM which was extremely inconvenient but at least classes in one of the academic buildings was canceled. The winner still hasn’t been announced but we’re waiting with crossed fingers that it was our unit. The winning unit wins a pizza party so we’ll see who reigns supreme.
All week people have been wearing costumes and although I do like being wacky, for some reason I can just never get creative enough to dress up as anything for Halloween. Even as a kid I was a Debbie Downer and never dressed up for Halloween because I just didn’t care enough. Besides, I like investing my energy into real holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving.
Tonight I plan on giving candy to my residents in my hallway and
probably not play Halloween music on my speakers with my door open. I can say I have gotten into the spirit by having a pumpkin in my room but I’m scared it’s going to rot so I think I might have to get rid of it soon…..

So Halloween hit Butler early this year with everyone celebrating it this weekend. I normally don’t get into the Halloween spirit and never get dressed up but after peer pressure from my pals I decided to wear my Kris Humphries shirt and go as him as a last minute choice.
I decided to go to the dance party on campus and while there I saw Bekah dancing up a storm in a onesie! Only Bekah would wear a onesie and not think it’s a big deal. I also went around my unit randomly taking candy from all my residents. Little do they know I’ve been accumulating all the candy I’ve gotten from them in my room so when Halloween comes around I don’t have to buy any. Very smart thinking on my part, I must say.

The weather has been awkwardly depressing lately. Not only has it been cold, it has been drizzling/raining. I’ve had to start wearing my jacket and bundling up. I guess fall is coming with a vengeance this year. I’ve been listening to Adele to prepare myself for this weather and so far it has been working.
With October just starting, I can’t help but think about how soon Halloween is. I think I also might actually dress up this year! So far I have no idea what I want to be but I’m sure I’ll think of something. I’m thinking of visiting my friends at IU for Halloween so that should be fun.
So today in Spanish class my group finally got to perform our rendition of “Bad Romance” for the class. We pretty much rocked it! We even got extra credit for memorizing it and wearing costumes. I wore a cape (my Halloween costume).
In my Aesthetics and Design class, we had an assignment in which we had to take a blank sheet of paper and somehow raise the value of it. I made it into a pro-recycling sign and included a statistic on it. I’ll post a picture showing it.
That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment! You can follow me on twitter here.

So I spent my Halloween weekend at IU in Bloomington! I visited my friends and it was so much fun! I dressed as a SUPER fan. I wore a cape, a foam finger, and an IU shirt. But, I still love my Butler Bulldogs!
IU was a fun experience because there are so many people. It was fun maneuvering through the crowds of people to get to different places. My favorite part was when me and my friend Jill were walking down the street and a random person threw marshmallows at us! It doesn’t sound fun or that exciting but trust me, it was the funniest thing ever.
Since my weekend was all play and no work, after mass today, I have to write three papers today for this week! It was worth it though!
That’s my weekend in a nutshell! Thanks for visiting my blog!

This is us in our costumes! Jill was Pocahontas, I was a "Super" Fan, and Cassi was a Greek Goddess.
This weekend I’m going to Indiana University! It should be fun since it’s Halloween weekend. I’m staying with my friend Jill. I don’t have much of a costume since I went to the first store that had anything that looked like a costume. The store ended up being CVS!
Since it didn’t have a wide variety all I got was a cape so hopefully I can make some sort of costume out of the rest of the clothes in my closet. Tonight before I leave, I might go to IUPUI to visit some of my friends that attend school there.
That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog!
