St. Patrick’s Day

Everyone is getting excited on my local news stations for St. Patrick’s Day and I feel like I’m the one who awkwardly isn’t. I think the only reason why I’m not excited is because I don’t have anything green to wear! That’s really funny considering the fact that green is my favorite color. So hopefully no one pinches me!

My friend Jessica wants to go to the St Patty’s Day parade in downtown Chicago tomorrow so I might end up doing that! The only thing that might prevent me from going is the fact that there are supposed to be isolated thunderstorms that day! I’ve never been to a big parade on that level so I do think it would be a really fun experience. So I’ll just have to wait and see!

Here’s a scene from my favorite Disney movie, “The Luck of the Irish.” They’re playing it on Disney this weekend so if I don’t go to the parade I’ll be at home watching!

Mountains of Joy

This week has been a pretty busy week. I have so many assignments in my classes. My writing assignment is coming along well. My biggest tasks to handle is to finish studying for my Chemistry exam and to read for my First Year Seminar class.

My First Year Seminar class is Irish Literature and we are currently reading “The Speckled People” by Hugo Hamilton. It’s a book about a German-Irish boy living in Ireland after World War II and how it affects him and his family. It’s not my book of choice but I’m getting through it. My favorite book that we have read in FYS (First Year Seminar) so far is Translations by Brian Friel. It is a play based in Ireland and was actually really enjoyable to read.

It’s raining a lot today and I’m feeling a little under the weather (no pun intended) so today has been ok. Since I’m not feeling well I have to miss my SGA (Student Government Association) meeting today. I represent ADrenaline in SGA which is the school’s advertising and marketing club at Butler.

That’s all for today!

Go Bulldogs!
