Early Halloween

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.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Easter! I was able to go home this weekend to see my family and go to church! It was so nice to go home and relax and see my family. We got to go out and eat and even watch a movie together.

When I got back to campus I got to campus, my friend Karleen and Brandon all went to her house to finish the Easter festivities. Her mom cooked a glorious meal and needless to say, I’ve eaten cheesecake galore. Her family also participated in an Easter egg toss competition. If I were playing I would have won but Karleen’s older sister Kelly ended up winning. We ended the day visiting her friend Allie’s house and now I’m back on campus after a fun day doing homework. :(

Twas fun while it lasted!

Merry Christmas!

For those who celebrate, Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone has a great and warm holiday this year. Before the eating and unwrapping of gifts begins, I wanted to make a quick blog to talk about the holiday and such.

Thankfully it’s not snowing outside because 1. “White Christmas” is one of my least favorite Christmas songs and 2. I hate the cold. It’s also good because I plan to go shopping tomorrow with all of my Christmas money and the roads need to be clear to make way for me!

One of my favorite Christmas songs, however, is “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey. But since I’ve been listening to Michael Bublé’s Christmas album, I thought I’d post his version! His voice is reminiscent of drinking hot chocolate by the fire on a cold day. That basically means I love it! Even though I’ve never actually done that and I hate hot chocolate, his music is just too good.

Christmas Shopping Day

Today, since I did not have classes, I dedicated to purchasing Christmas gifts for those I have to buy gifts for! My biggest priority was buying a gift for my best pal Karleen. I know she reads my blog so I won’t reveal the contents of the gift but hopefully she likes it! There is also an RA Secret Santa giveaway and I had to buy a gift for another one of the RAs so hopefully he or she likes their gift as well! I usually go down the giftcard route for Christmas gifts but I decided to give real gifts this year instead.

After I got back to campus, I saw none other than the cutest baby in the world roaming campus, little baby Violet. Of course I had to take a picture with her! You can obviously tell by the disinterested/worried look on her face that I’m her favorite person in the world. I just have that effect on people, especially children.

Magnificent Parade

Yesterday I went to downtown Chicago and attended the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival and I really enjoyed it! I had the secret hope of being on the news but I unfortunately didn’t make an appearance. Maybe next time! The parade/lights show marked the first time that all the Christmas lights in the city were being officially lit up.

There were seemingly millions of people in the streets and I could barely get a good view of the parade! I was tempted to get on someone’s shoulders and pretend they were my parent but decided against it. My favorite balloon was that of Rudolph because, I can’t tell if it was because of the wind or the people holding the strings, he was knocking into the crowd and it was very entertaining.
