Today is the inauguration of President Obama and since I did all my homework already, I decided to spend today watching it. It was the first inauguration I’ve ever watched since at Obama’s last inauguration I was in school and was taking a history test. I remember specifically because my school played his speech on the intercom and I remember getting annoyed because I couldn’t concentrate on my exam! Needless to say I got an A anyway!
The highlight for me, obviously, was when Beyoncé sang the National Anthem. It was so perfect! If she sang this good in the blistering cold of Washington D.C., I can only imagine how well she’ll perform during the Super Bowl in New Orleans this year! I’m so glad I finally got to experience something so historic on television, especially after voting in my first election last year.

I am officially on fall break and I am loving it! It is so wonderful being back at home and I got my first home cooked meal in months!
The drive home was not too bad. I’ve been listening to Jessie J a lot and listened to her album on my way home. The best part about driving home was that there were a lot of other Butler students going home on the highway too. We could each tell we were from Butler because of our parking passes on our cars. It definitely made way for a lot of awkward quick glances!
This week, I’ve also been working on Butler’s student newspaper, The Collegian. I wrote about President Jim Danko’s upcoming inauguration and the events that will take place for it. The inauguration theme is “Imagine the Possibilities,” which definitely gives me high hopes as to what is planned for this year! It was fun writing my story because I got to talk to different students and the chair of the inauguration committee!
I found this video of fellow blogger Olivia on YouTube and wanted to share!! It’s so funny and depicts her perfectly!
