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!

Today, like most days for the past week, it rained on campus. I like rainy days occasionally, but campus isn’t as lively as I’d like for it to be on rainy days! Also, I have discovered that I don’t own appropriate rain “gear” to make it in Indiana. I guess I’m not really that prepared for the rain here is because in Tennessee the rain water is constantly flowing…but Tennessee also has a lot more hills than Indiana. So when campus floods, I’m usually drenched and my shoes are SOAKED because the campus is flat, but I’m slowly beginning to learn the Indiana/Butler ways of life.
Although I’m not a huge fan of rain, the campus is always prettier right after a rain shower…always. Yesterday was the nicest it has been on campus in a while, so my friend Jensey and I took advantage of it and laid around in her hammock! We hung it up right outside of Atherton Union in between two trees. I had never actually laid in a hammock before, either, and I’m not sure if that’s strange, but I hope not! Regardless, it was INCREDIBLE!
My friend Jensey and I just "hanging out"
Dr. Johnson, Butler’s Vice President for Student Affairs, stopped by while my friends Katie and Jensey were laying in it and took their picture, and he even posted it on his Twitter! He loved the fact that we were all relaxing while studying, or attempting to at least. Anyways, the hammock was amazing, and we can’t hang in it when it’s raining outside, so I’m looking forward to finding more great spots to “hang out” around campus when it gets nicer!
As for now, I will leave you guys with one of my favorite songs by my favorite band Passion Pit. Coincidentally, my neighbors were just blasting it, so I’m gonna have to stop by and compliment them on their music taste. Take a listen, enjoy, and have a great afternoon!
