A Quiet Campus

This is perhaps the only Fall Break that I have remained on campus during my four years at Butler. In the past, even the thought of remaining here would have seemed ludicrous. I could be going home! I could get some home cooked food. Or any food for that matter (the cafeterias on campus were not open with the same quantity of hours as normal school days).

Yet I have found that the majority of this break has not been what I expected. I imagined that it would be deserted. Which it is. But I have a number of senior friends who are still on campus. In my circle of friends, campus isn’t that much altered. Maybe all the seniors are dreading the end of their days here, are determined to squeeze every last bit of enjoyment out of campus before it’s gone (some other bloggers agree!).

One advantage of a depleted campus is the HRC. Normally the weight lifting area is overloaded with the usual suspects of the grotesquely muscled. For a few blessed days it is not. I have taken advantage of the opportunity to learn about what happens in the depths of the gym. See below to see my progress and rate how well you think I did.

COME ON ANDREW, ONE MORE!!

The First Flurries

That’s right, with the first flurries of the season last night, it seems time to bid farewell to fall. Forget the free-floating leaves and the frolicking breezes. Winter is fast upon us, and its fairly impossible to ignore the sub freezing temperatures this morning.

To commemorate the passing of this great season, I thought I would show you a video that I put together with a group in my Intro to Digital Media Productions class. We handled  expensive equipment that we hardly knew how to operate to put this together, so I hope you appreciate it (learn by doing is what I say).

The next thing on my to-do list is get winter hats, gloves, socks (I can’t believe I left my wool socks at home! O the agony!) Perhaps I could make a trip to the Butler Bookstore. With my limited storage space in my room, one can only bring so much from home, and I put off  bringing back most of my cold weather gear. Let’s hope I can make it through the weeks before Thanksgiving on sweatshirts…

Warm Weather, Where Art Thou?

If you don’t believe what weather.com will tell you, just step outside your door for two seconds, and you’ll experience the fantastically beautiful weather that is very un-October (which is fine by me, since I still want summer). If you’re on Butler’s campus, there are many options for people looking to relish these final days of warmth.

Benches: where work comes to be distracted.

  • Go on a run! (You’re great HRC, but sometimes outside is just nicer)
  • Throw a disc
  • Do homework outside on a bench
  • Lay outside, work optional
  • Visit Holcomb Gardens (The painful reminders that it’s autumn are there, but that doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful)
  • Keep your window open
  • Wear shorts
  • Wear t-shirts (Both advisable anyways)
  • Sit in class hoping against hope that your teacher will take you outside (which sometimes WILL happen. Thanks Dr. Spyra!)
