Since I will be traveling back to Butler this weekend as well as being alone practically all week, I’ve decided to update my iPhone (it’s weird saying that) with a bunch of new music.
To start out with, I downloaded the entire “Breakfast” album by Chiddy Bang, which is and American “pop-rap” duo consisting of “Chiddy” Anamege and Noah Beresin. Coincidentally, Butler’s SGA got Chiddy Bang to play at this year’s Butlerpalooza, and I got a chance to see them. I had liked them before, but I never really got into them as much as I am now, and I can’t stop listening to them. They truly have a unique sound, and I really wish I could go back in time and see them again now that I’m really into them!
It’s really hard for me to pick a favorite song, but if I were to have one it would probably be a tie between both “Whatever We Want” and “Happening.” Both have really good intro music, which usually determines the entire song for me due to being hooked in the beginning. Check both out here!
Whatever We Want
Now that Labor Day has come and gone, fall is FINALLY here! It’s also come a lot sooner in Indy than it would if I were back in Tennessee-that’s for certain. I woke up this this morning and was shocked when I saw that it was 52 degrees at 8:30…but I’m loving it! Fall is my favorite season of the year, and it’s absolutely the BEST time to visit campus! The first time I visited Butler was last October, and as soon as I arrived on campus I knew that I would spend my next four years here…and here I am! Today I’m wearing jeans and a thermal and I feel so comfortable/warm; I almost just want to curl up and watch a movie instead of going to my next class!
Speaking of classes- I’m loving my classes and class schedule. This is what my week looks like for the most part:
- FYS : Scary Stories – The Metaphor of a Zombie. - Yes, my FYS, which part of Butler’s CORE Curriculum, is about Zombies, but it’s also so much more at the same time. The class is very philosophical which is difficult to understand unless you’re actually in the class. I’m glad to be with the group of people I am with in the class as well as having such an awesome professor! This class will probably be talked about a lot in future posts just because it keeps me always questioning things & on the edge of my seat.
- NW: Urban Ecology - This class is about the ecology of not only Butler but also the entire city of Indianapolis (which is really interesting once analyzed). Everything we do in the lecture part of class we always follow up with a hands-on lab, and so far we’ve explored the city of Indianapolis and the Holcomb Gardens and I’ve only had the lab twice! This class also part of Butler’s CORE curriculum.
- Algebra - Okay, so as part of the College of Business I’m only required to take Business Calculus….if I had tested into it. So my algebra class is basically a preparatory class and I’ll take Business Calculus next semester.
- EI 101 : Freshman Business Experience - This is my favorite class by far not only because it’s a business class but it’s also the introduction to my major-once they finalize it-Entrepreneurship & Innovation. The class is very team-oriented and I’ve met a lot of people with similar interests that I have in the class, which is what college is about, right?
That’s all of my classes for the semester. It might not seem like much, but it is 14 hours and my adviser and I felt that 14 hours was a good amount for my first semester of college.
There’s a lot of stuff happening on campus lately. This past Friday my friends and I attended the Chiddy Bang show at Clowes which was a BLAST! My friend Whitney and I got separated from the rest of our group, but we ended up sitting in the very middle of the eighth row so getting separated wasn’t that big of a deal for me at least.
Chiddy Bang really knows how to put on a show!
There’s a lot more stuff going on campus soon, but I’m gonna save that for another post because I have to run to class. Have a great day, everyone, and I hope the weather is as enjoyable where you are as it is here on campus!

Actually, today isn’t necessarily the day of anything significant. In fact, it’s quite the opposite (for myself at least). First and foremost, I want to reintroduce myself and let you know a little more about who I am, and who I’ve become in the last two weeks alone, before I go on about my day. My name’s Austin, and I’m a freshman in the College of Business as a Business Exploratory major until the newest major, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, is approved by the university. I like to take pictures in my spare time, and I’m usually aimlessly wandering around campus looking for new places to study. So far I’ve really enjoyed studying in the Ruth Lilly Science Library, which is tucked away in the corner of the Holcomb Building. It has so much natural lighting, as you can see here.

Anyways, like I said earlier in my post, today isn’t necessarily the day for anything in particular. Today was more over a lazy day for me because it’s the first day since I moved on campus that I didn’t have a single meeting to attend! I’ve also been really productive. I’ve done some homework at the library (of course), went to the Castleton Square Mall with a few friends, and I’m now finishing up some late-night laundry while finishing the rest of my homework. It’s been a good night!
Looks like my laundry’s finished, but I’m gonna leave you guys with another song to celebrate Butlerpalooza…which is TOMORROW! For those of you who don’t know, Butlerpalooza is an annual music festival that SGA helps put on and both Smash Mouth AND Chiddy Bang are performing! I couldn’t be even more excited for the show! Enjoy!
