Homework Break

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.

Music Monday: Red

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.

Founder’s Day

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.

Spring Cleaning: Winter Edition

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.
