Ten Best Things About Being Back At Butler

I decided for today’s blog post, I’d make a list of my top ten favorite things about being back on campus! There were so many things, it was hard to cut it down to ten but here it goes:

1. Finally being reunited with all my friends!

2. Having an air conditioned dorm

3. Starting new classes and meeting new people

4. Getting to go to Starbucks every day

5. Randomly seeing Butler Blue 2 on campus

6. Going to see different events at Clowes Hall

7. Getting my weekly workout in at the HRC

8. Getting chased by awkwardly obese squirrels

9.  Going to sports games (Especially basketball!)

10. Participating in all the new organizations I’m part of

My Top Ten

Tomorrow is the last official day of classes so I decided to make a post that’s a list to change things up a bit. I’m making my top ten things I’ll miss about Butler over the summer!

It was hard narrowing it down to ten but here it goes… They’re in no particular order by the way!

1. Seeing Blue in Starbucks on random occasions

2. Seeing all my friends in class

3. All the clubs I’m in, especially College Democrats!

4. Teaches ESL classes on Thursday nights

5. LONNNGGGG walks in Holcomb Gardens

6. Weekly SGA meetings on Wednesdays

7. Collapsing in my bed after classes

8. Randomly Themed Lunches at Resco

9. Waiting in line at Starbucks

10. All the lovely homework given on a daily basis! *cue sarcasm*

Hopefully summer doesn’t go by as fast as the school year did! Now all I have to do is get through finals and then home sweet home here I come!

I thought this video was too hilarious not to share! It features Butler’s very own President Bobby Fong teaching viewers how to wash their hands.

Final Week!

This week is the final week of classes and I couldn’t be more excited! Butler has definitely been a fun experience and I cannot wait until my years to come! I really hope my future years don’t go by as fast.

The only bad part about the year ending is that finals are rapidly approaching! Luckily for me, I only have one final during finals week. The rest of my classes either don’t have a final or are having it this week. My final is on the last day of finals (just my luck!) so I’ll be slowly but surely moving my stuff back home slowly during the week.

I’m going to miss so much about campus during the summer! I’m going to miss all the people, all my classes, and all the Pepsi, since Butler is a Pepsi campus!

The thing I’ll miss most is randomly seeing Blue 2 in Starbucks in the mornings! He better stay rowdy for when I get back!

Happy Birthday Blue!

Friday was Butler’s mascot, Blue‘s, birthday! He turned seven in human years, which is 49 in dog years I think, so he’s getting to be an old little fella! The party for him was held in Starbucks and I’ve never seen it more packed! There were also many prospective students and their parents in attendance. It was definitely a good day to take a tour!

I made sure to force my way to the front of the crowd because I saw the guy from Fox news filming. I never miss an opportunity to be on the news! We all sang happy birthday and participated in eating all the free cookies. There was a contest to guess the correct number of dog treats in a bowl and the winner got a Starbucks gift card.

Blue tried running away twice while we all were singing to him. He’s probably sick of all the paparazzi following him!

Blue and his owner on his big day! He was definitely getting rowdy in his party hat!

Entrevista de Trabajo!

So just in case if you were wondering, the title of this post means “Job Interview” in Spanish. The reason it’s in Spanish is because my group was assigned to do a skit of a job interview in Spanish class. We’re supposed to dress up for it and bring props and a powerpoint so I’m definitely whipping out all my good clothes!

So me and the other two members of my group met in the library today to work on it and I think we’re in good shape for tomorrow. We have two skits, one where I’m the boss interviewing for a job with the UN and in the other one I am applying to work for the State Department. It’s very humorous and hopefully we do a good job.

Today in line at Starbucks, I saw fellow blogger Steph! I told her about how I’ve never tried any of the iced drinks and she recommended me quite a few selections but I ended up getting the iced green tea. She also told me that maybe I should get a venti (large) size instead of tall (small) but I just got a small just to try it out. I must say that I should’ve gone with a venti because it was so good! I finished it before I got to my dorm! I’ll take your advice next time Steph!!

It’s so warm out today but I’m still saving my shorts until Friday! It better still be warm then or I will be one unhappy camper!

I saw this cool video online about Butler University Dance Marathon. It’s definitely worth seeing. Students sign up to dance for 12 hours straight all to raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital. I’m definitely getting involved with it next year!

Free Starbucks? Of course!

Last week I went into Starbucks like any other day to order my Tall Chai Tea Latte like I usually do but there was a booth called “Coffee Chat” open that said if you filled out a card for a suggestion about campus then you’d receive a free tall drink from Starbucks. This definitely made my day!

Something that made my day today is the fact that the Oscars are coming on today! I’m excited to see Anne Hathaway and James Franco host. I think they’ll be an interesting pair. Hopefully I finish my homework in time to watch it! I’m just interested in seeing which film wins Best Picture and who wins Best Actor and Actress. It’ll be a fun night for sure!

That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment and thanks for visiting! You can see my Twitter here.

Busy Busy Day!

So today after my last class I have to run right over to the library to work on my presentation for Spanish class. We have to perform two skits for the class. Then I have to run over to Starbucks to work on my art proposal project for my Aesthetics and Design course. This means that today and tomorrow are going to be my busiest days ever!

Luckily for me, last week I wasn’t too busy and I was able to attend a poetry reading in Starbucks. I was curious to see how creative the poetry from other students on campus would be and I was NOT disappointed. Students either read their favorite poem or a poem they wrote themselves. I had to leave early because Modern Family was coming on but I will definitely attend if there’s another reading.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today is Valentine’s Day and I was pleasantly surprised that as soon as I walked into Jordan Hall, there was a girl handing out Valentine’s Day cards and candy. It definitely made my morning. I really needed the sugar because I was so tired. I didn’t even get to stop by Starbucks before class like I usually do!

In my Civil War FYS class we are now reading “For Cause and Comrades” by James M. McPherson. I haven’t started reading it yet but I will tonight and give my opinion. It’s shorter than the last book we read so I kind of like it already.

I did not get to watch the Grammys yesterday unfortunately. I did get to catch Lady Gaga’s performance, which I actually thought was kind of boring. I’m an ardent fan and even I was left a little disappointed with her new song “Born This Way.”

That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment and thanks for visiting!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
