I’m finally back at Butler! After an extremely short week off, I finally made it back this morning. Last night, I’m assuming because I was so anxious to come back, I could not for the life of me fall asleep! I tried all the tricks in the book: relaxing, counting sheep, hiding under the covers, crying, puking, anything! Well maybe not all of that but close. I fell asleep around 2:30 and woke up at 6:30 to drive back. And after a two hour drive, I finally made it!
Once I got to my room, I immediately grabbed a Red Bull so I wouldn’t collapse and unpacked all of my things. Then I printed out all of the papers I wrote during break before everyone else in my building returned before the printer jammed, which always seemingly happens! Afterwards I was able to go get frozen yogurt with my friends to get ready for classes tomorrow.

Usually on Monday mornings the song “Don’t Wake Me Up” describes my life, but considering the fact that I got 8 hours of sleep last night and I drank Red Bull this morning, I am wide awake and woke up with glee. I somehow end up getting the most sleep the nights before the days with the least number of classes. Today I only have one class and it starts at 2 PM, so I didn’t even get to take advantage of being able to sleep in!
There is a not-so-secret secret that I am obsessed with Chris Brown, which is why i chose him for this Music Monday. The video involves him randomly being transported to different regions and climates around the world as he follows a girl. I’m assuming he’s dreaming and does not want to be woken up based on the title of the song.
So far this week, I’ve gotten about 6-8 hours of sleep each night which is a new record for me this semester. I’m not sure how it has happened since I’m as busy as ever but I won’t complain! I even don’t need coffee to keep me awake during the day. Maybe I’ll keep this up!
On The Collegian, we are currently working on a special insert for the first men’s home basketball game. I wrote two women’s basketball stories for the issue and I think it’ll turn out pretty well! The people working on the issue have a lot of cool graphics and even had a photo shoot with the team! I can’t wait to see it! Collegian members will be passing the issue out at the game and there will be a copy inside of each paper in bins around campus!
Here’s a video of the introduction of the basketball team in 2010. Hopefully we’ll make to the championship again this year and win!
