This is what I wanted my first blog to be about of the week – the election. I’m SO thankful it’s over, and although I would have been content with either outcome of the election – I’m VERY pleased about the outcome! Barack Obama successfully clinched the re-election over Mitt Romney. I even donated money to attempt to get Obama reelected – and it did!
I have so many emotions running through my mind right now. I’m too excited to sleep. Sometimes I wish that Butler was a little bit more on the liberal side, but hey – it’s pretty moderate, and I can deal with that. This is a picture my friend sent me from the College Democrats of America chapter at Georgetown – they were watching live updates, and as soon as Obama tipped past 270 they all ran to the White House.

On a positive note – if you’re looking for a more politically moderate school, Butler is a good place to be. I have friends who are Republicans and I also have friends who are Democrat – it’s an even split. That’s just an inside look!
As I’m sitting in Gallahue Hall (the science building on campus) studying for my urban ecology and algebra exams that are coming up, the sun started to set. It was the first time I’ve actually watched the sun go down, and Gallahue is one of the best spots to watch it because it has so much natural lighting (most of the buildings on campus do though). Anyways, as the sun was going down I started reminiscing on times back home and the memories I’ve made at Butler so far.

I truly feel at home here, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for me. It’s hard to think that I’ve been in college a month already, and let me tell you-it’s been the best month of my life. Really what I’m trying to say is, is that choosing Butler has been the best decision I’ve ever made. Butler has so much to offer- over 140 student organizations, 15 fraternities and sororities, and an abundance of intramural/club sports. At the moment I’m really interested in joining Alpha Kappa Psi, Phi Delta Theta, College Democrats, and probably playing intramural table tennis. I still have plenty of time to decide, and that’s one of the best things about being in college.
This past weekend was great. I went to both Sky Zone and Fiesta Indianapolis, but I’ll save blogging about both events for next time. Thanks for reading, and I hope everyone has a great week!
