Today was Mardi Gras and it was a lot of fun! Unfortunately I was not able to go to New Orleans but I was able to go to the Mardi Gras event held in Resco. Last year I couldn’t go because I was busy but this year I was able to attend! There was so much food! They had Yats, candy, and King Cake. I’ve never had King Cake before so that was exciting to try and it was delicious!
There were many activities too! There was mask decorating, caricatures, and psychic readings. I was able to decorate a mask but I was too scared to go to the psychic for the fear of her telling me that I was going to die in like five minutes. Luckily, I didn’t! I ended my Mardi Gras night with photos in the photo booth and needless to say I’m surprised I didn’t break the booth with all the photos I took! I can’t wait to attend again next year!
Waiting in line for food!!

My math class for today was canceled so I only had to go to Chemistry today! So I got to take a REALLY long nap! Tonight I have to finish reading The Speckled People and study for a Spanish test.
I just attended an SGA (Student Government Association) meeting and it is a really good organization for freshmen to join. Each student organization at Butler has a representative in SGA and I represent ADrenaline, Butler’s advertising and marketing club. They won regionals and did well in nationals last year. SGA members vote on different agenda and are responsible for deciding on how money is allotted to various clubs on campus.
I am excited for the upcoming events at Butler! SGA sponsors many of the events on campus. Last year the featured artists at Butler were Kellie Pickler and Girl Talk. This year, Ben Folds, John Legend, and John Mellencamp are coming! Adam Lambert already came earlier in the year. For more info on upcoming events and tickets at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler visit their webpage.
I added pictures of my dorm today so that future students can get a feel as to what the rooms would look like. Most freshmen will be in either Ross Hall (boys and girls dorm) or Schwitzer Hall (girls dorm). I am in Resco which houses mostly sophomores but occasionally some freshmen slip through (like me!).
THE YANKEES ARE GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS!!!!!!
That’s all for today! Go Bulldogs!
