Banner Contest

So ResCo held a Halloween banner contest where each unit could decorate a banner and each unit has to compete against each other. My residents spent hours on it and the finished product was amazing! Everyone in the hallway pooled together supplies and resources such as paint, colored paper, brushes, and decorations. The theme of the banner had to have a mix of Butler, your unit, and Halloween themes.

The winner was supposed to be announced on Halloween but after a power outage that made the whole building literally have to spend the night in the dining hall, it wasn’t. We didn’t get to return to our building until 4 AM which was extremely inconvenient but at least classes in one of the academic buildings was canceled. The winner still hasn’t been announced but we’re waiting with crossed fingers that it was our unit. The winning unit wins a pizza party so we’ll see who reigns supreme.

Music Monday: Beyoncé Bowl

Beyoncé won the Super Bowl this year.

Instead of watching the Puppy Bowl this year, I decided to watch the real version. Only because Beyoncé was the halftime performer. I would also like to point out the fact that I correctly chose the winner of the game which means I’m on a two year win streak on choosing the winner of the Super Bowl. Maybe I should try to make money off of my talent in the future.

Now on to the performance… I thought it was great! Beyoncé looked spectacular, the song choices were great, and Destiny’s Child reunited! I was only disappointed in the fact that she did not sing a new song but the performance was still great nonetheless! She is supposed to be attending the Grammys this upcoming Sunday so hopefully she will be making a surprise performance with a brand new song! It’ll make my life complete.

Amish Country

Yesterday lightning struck the Butler power center and knocked out the power on campus. Fortunately I was off campus shopping for most of it but when I got back, I had to sit in the dark. Most of the buildings on campus didn’t have power but eventually they all came on except for my building. Just my luck!

As it was slowly getting darker outside, I had to find numerous ways to entertain myself. Many people in my unit resorted to playing board games in the hallways. First I tried watching movies on my laptop but eventually my battery ran low. Then I searched around on my phone and played games and discovered new apps! The one that was most helpful in the situation was the flashlight app that I had to use to manuver the hallways.

Once it was completely dark outside, I decided to brave the dark and go visit my friend Maisie in Schwitzer and use her resources to charge my phone. After waiting for hours, I decided I was too tired and was going to go to my room whether it was dark or not and go to bed. To my surprise all the lights were on and power was restored! It was the most glorious moment of my life. I was done living like the Amish!

It actually ended up being unexpectedly fun, but I’d rather not go through it again.

This is literally the view in my room last night. It was seriously that dark...
