Couldn’t Stay Away

Today was sort of an off day since students weren’t moving in today so I had a lot of free time to get laundry done and run errands. Campus was actually pretty quiet today, which I’m sure will change really soon once everyone moves in tomorrow! But as of right now, things are pretty calm.

Since I was a little bored, I decided to visit my old stomping grounds at the Collegian. It was so great seeing everyone and catching up. I guess I couldn’t even stay away for a week! I had to quit this semester since I am starting as an RA but it was definitely weird being in the office and not having to do anything for a change. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit again soon during the semester!

Lauren and I reunited in the Collegian office!

Butler Memories

Here’s a list of my favorite Butler/Indianapolis memories so far in no particular order:

1. The basketball team going to the national finals my freshman year for the second time.

5. The announcement of Blue 3 as the new mascot.

6. Seeing all the Super Bowl stuff downtown.

7. Going to the mall almost every weekend.

8. Having Jimmy Fallon come to campus.

I can’t wait to add more to the list with my remaining two years!

Last Newspaper

This morning I wrote my last article for the Collegian. It was sort of a bittersweet moment since I’m happy I don’t have to write anything else but I’m also sad it’s over. I had to cover the men’s golf team this week and their tournament at Ball State.

Last Wednesday we had our last meeting of the year and for our last ice breaker we had to say our favorite Collegian memory. I had so many it was hard to narrow down but I think my favorite was my birthday when everyone signed a card and made me a gift! I’m so sad I won’t be able to do newspaper next year since I’ll be so busy but I’ll definitely come back if my second semester clears up!

Stop the Presses!

Last Wednesday was the last day of working on the newspaper for the semester! It was so fun working on The Collegian this semester and I cannot wait to start again next semester! I was so great to be able to interview so many new and exciting people and I look forward to all the new people I’ll meet next semester!

Though I’ll miss writing each week, it is nice to get a break! I’m mostly looking forward to all the new people I’ll meet on staff next semester and I’ll finally not be part of the new group! I remember my first day thinking how I’d be able to learn everything about writing and laying out pages but now I love it and it’s like second nature!

The thing I think I’ll miss most is all the delicious free food we got to eat on Mondays and Tuesdays after working on pages! Mmmm…. I can smell the Jimmy Johns now! Now that I think about it, maybe I want break to go by kind of quickly! Ha! JUST KIDDING!

Here is a picture of me and Maria, one of the photographers, in the Collegian office after a longgg Tuesday night!

Fall Is Upon Us!

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!

Interviews Galore

I write for Butler’s newspaper The Butler Collegian and this week I think I’ve gotten my toughest assignment yet! I have to interview 24 people by tomorrow! I’ve already gotten most of them done so hopefully I can get the rest by my deadline! I think the story will go well and I think this definitely teaches me time management skills!

I also have a lot of homework in my other classes so this week is really stressful. But, one thing I am looking forward to is fall break next week. I plan to go to Chicago with some of my friends from high school. Hopefully we will go shopping downtown because I need lots of new fall clothes!

Back to Work!

I’m so glad to finally be back at Butler! I’ve been super busy with all my courses and extracurriculars! I decided to take a break from my homework to talk about what I’ve been up to!

For starters, I just joined the Butler Collegian, Butler’s student newspaper. It comes out every Wednesday and we put in a lot of work into making it perfect. I write for the news section! I’m also a member of College Democrats again and yesterday we started planning some awesome events for this upcoming year! Stay tuned to my blog for more about that!

I’m also pretty excited for all of my courses. I’m really excited about my Sportswriting class. Though I have a couple of favorite sports teams, I’m not much of a sports junkie so I’ve been consistently checking ESPN everyday just to get up to speed on the latest sports news.

Since today is the first home game of the football season, I thought I’d share a Butler football video I found online!
