One of the greatest parts of the Butler D.C. program is that the residence is literally a 5 minute walk to the National Zoo! An even greater perk is that entrance into the zoo is free! You can literally walk around at any hour you like for absolutely free! Needless to say, I’ve been multiple times.
Last week, after working on assignments in the library by my apartment, I decided to check out the zoo on my way back. It was a bit chilly but that didn’t stop me! I grabbed some Starbucks and checked it out! One of the first little furry animals I saw was a little red fox chewing on some leaves. It was extremely precious. I slightly debated stealing it!
This red fox was begging me to take it home with me!
After I made friends with the fox, I ventured over to the new panda exhibit. There’s a new baby panda at the zoo named Bao Bao and I was the first of my D.C. friends to see her! She was strutting her stuff with her mom and I had to fight my way to the front of the crowd to see her! It was definitely a successful visit!

Even though I spent a couple days relaxing and doing nothing this break, most of my time was spent doing homework, completing assignments, and working on projects. Today I decided to go to this strange place called the public library and work on my research literature review. I periodically did my homework one course a day during the break so it was a relief to finally get the ball rolling on this last assignment before going back to Butler tomorrow.
With Lana Del Rey on shuffle, I was ready to go! I got through planning my paper and finding all the sources and sites I need to get going. I got a couple pages done but I still have a lot more to go. Hopefully I can get it done by the end of the week.
Getting antsy in the library
On Dancing with the Stars last night, Rob Kardashian, my favorite, made second place. Despite being disappointed, I was also distracted by the fact that there was a Republican CNN debate at the same time. I was so conflicted as to what to watch so I decided to keep flipping channels like a crazy person! I was a little disappointed in this debate as there weren’t as many heated exchanges and verbal attacks as usual! It was just a disappointing television night for me overall!
Today I was a little more productive! I went to the library with my friend Jill and did some homework! Needless to say, I am so far done with half of my assignments! I hadn’t been to my local county library in years and when we went today I was pleasantly surprised to see that it has been completely remodeled and everything is arranged differently than when I was in elementary school! Me and Jill spent about 20 minutes wandering aimlessly trying to find a place to sit and plug in our laptops! Luckily once we found our footing, we were able to get stuff done!
I was also a little sneaky while at the library! Despite its strict no food and drink policy, I was starving and managed to eat a blueberry bagel from Dunkin Donuts while doing work! (Shhh! Be sure not to tell!!!)
Here’s another Black Friday commercial featuring a pretty
crazy wacky lady as well! I never noticed the Black Friday commercials before this year but I love them all! Plus, this one takes its tune from the masterpiece that is “Friday.”
Today was the first day of the new semester and I loved all of my classes! I started the day with Spanish, then I had British Literature, and I ended my day with Aesthetics & Design. Tomorrow I only have one class so I am already looking forward to it!
Already I had to meet with my Spanish group in the library. Our assignment is to use vocabulary words and put it to the tune of a song. The song we are using is “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga.
Thanks for visiting! Feel free to leave a comment!
