So this weekend I took the LSAT and have been stressed about it/been studying for it all semester. If I’ve met you, I’ve probably talked to you about it at some point because it has preoccupied most of my time. My residents knew how much I was stressed about it so the night before the test they all wrote funny/encouraging notes from my favorite celebrities saying I’d do well on the test and taped them to my door.
Twas nice waking up to these notes right before I go take my test!
After my test, my best friend Karleen and her friend Patrick got me my favorite box of poptarts and treated me to lunch since I hadn’t eaten all day. I spent the rest of the day hanging out with them and then took a well-deserved nap after not having to be as stressed anymore…. For now at least…..
The troublesome trio. I’ve never seen so much personality in one photo! I’ll ignore Patricks creepy face…
So I’ve been studying for different tests and assignments for the past couple of weeks and I decided to give myself a break today. I had a Spanish presentation today so I thought I deserved a nice little break from all my homework and assignments. So after my last class today, I came back to my room and took a nice long nap. Plus it was snowing outside so I was nice and warm in my bed.
Now, for the past hour or so I’ve been laying in bed, listening to classical music, and drinking tea. Needless to say, I feel classy. I might go to Whole Foods tomorrow and pick up more tea since I’m running low and I’m trying to taper off drinking coffee. Here’s the classical music mix I’ve been listening to in order to relax:
So I post about her enough that I felt like Miley Cyrus deserved her own Music Monday. She has probably been the most talked about celeb of the year and she’s probably my most talked about person in my life as well. I always have to update everyone in my classes on her latest antics and try to mimic them too. Although, I twerked before Miley tried it.
Over Thanksgiving Break, a video cameo out of a guy mimicking Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” music video on Chatroulette and it’s pretty hilarious. It does get creepy at times but that’s what makes it so funny. And if I ever were on Chatroulette I don’t think I’d be able to watch his whole performance but, nonetheless, he found someone to.
Today is another Thanksgiving and before I go downstairs and eat with my family I decided to do a quick blog before I go celebrate. Unfortunately I have homework to do today so I won’t be able to celebrate long but at least it’ll be nice to have some time to relax.
I missed the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade today because I overslept but I’m sure I’ll catch clips online. I always think it’s funny that a lot of people try to skip Thanksgiving and as soon as Halloween ends go right forward to Christmas. To get people in a more Thanksgiving loving mood, here is a funny Thanksgiving video to get you in the mood:
So this Thanksgiving Break has consisted of me just doing homework, homework, and more homework. It’s getting to the final stretch of classes and my professors have been assigning the final assignments and projects already. Plus I have a big test coming up soon which I’ve also been nervous about/studying for.
Tomorrow I might take a break from studying since it’s Thanksgiving Day but it depends on how productive I am today. I’ve actually been doing quite well at keeping up with my homework schedule over break which is surprising because when I’m at school I can never keep up with it.
The books I’ll be studying from today.
For some random reason I’ve really gotten into Taylor Swift lately, which is awkward since I like Kanye West a lot too, so I decided to dedicate today’s Music Monday to her. I can’t really relate to her lyrics but I still love her songs! On her Red album, I’d have to say my favorite songs are “Red,” “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and “Say Say Say.”
My favorite album by Taylor is “Fearless” and my favorite song of all time from her is “Love Story.” The “Love Story” video forever remains her best and it was the first song I heard by Taylor and made me discover her. And after hearing her on the radio yesterday, I decided to become a fully-fledged fan. Yes, I’m that quick to pick things up.

Yesterday was Founder’s Day on campus and it was actually pretty fun! There were different celebrations on campus commemorating Ovid Butler‘s, Butler’s founder’s, birth. There were cupcakes in Atherton, letter readings in Starbucks, and other events on campus. The event I went to was a portrait unveiling and talk from a direct descendant of Ovid Butler.
The speaker talked about interesting facts about Butler’s life and the university’s beginnings. For example, I learned that when Butler first opened it was a Christian university and that Ovid Butler was a strict abolitionist and strived for diversity and inclusivity in the university from day one. I also learned that the first black female to graduate college in Indiana was at Butler. It was so cool to hear these things about campus that I didn’t even know before as a junior.

My family likes to do things backwards and start spring cleaning in the WINTER! I didn’t have much to clean in my room since I always try to keep it neat and tidy so it wasn’t too bad!
Tomorrow is Christmas and I’m pretty excited! I think I have an idea of what I’m getting but I can’t be too sure! I also did some last minute Christmas shopping for my family and I beat the crowds so it went well.
Today I am going to purchase my textbooks for next semester. It’s so weird to think that I already finished one semester of college.
That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
