It has been raining for the past couple of days and JUST HASN’T STOPPED! Today I made the mistake of leaving my dorm without my umbrella and have been getting wet ever since. I’m currently drying my wet feet in my room in front of my lamp! Hopefully I’ll get warm and toasty soon!!!
It’s weird to think classes are ending in less than two weeks. It seems like the semester just started! I just got off of Thanksgiving break and now I’m looking forward to winter break! Well, I’m looking forward to everything except the cold and snow. I saw on the news that it is supposed to snow today so I’m hoping winter doesn’t come too early!!
Right before break started, my friend Jill, who goes to IU, came and visited Indianapolis to go to a local antiques shop! I stopped by and we had fun picking out different items! I almost got these authentic cowboy boots for $20 but decided against it as I don’t have anything to wear them with. I ended up not getting anything but I plan to go back another day when I’ll have more time to look around and find something I want/need!
This is me and Jill's roommate Kelly! Disregard the funny faces!
So it is raining today. I got so excited yesterday since it was so hot out. But it was nice to at least get one day on warmth in! I’m sure once June rolls around it’ll be nice and hot! But for now, I guess I’ll just have to leave my shorts in the closet and pull out my jeans.
I am part of the College Democrats group at Butler and I’m helping to set up our visit to the Capitol. It should be really fun. I got to get a tour of the Capitol this summer in Ambassadors of Change where freshmen got to move in a week early and get to know each other while doing service projects around the city. It is definitely something I recommend to all incoming freshmen! It was a great way to make friends coming into college and it was great to be able to give back to the community.
Here is a video explaining Ambassadors of Change:
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!
