What a Great Week

Happy Friday everyone! This week was really fantastic, and I’m still jazzed about it, so of course I’m going to share it with you.

Me and Hana at the protest

Monday night, Demia met to discuss the buzz surrounding the Eliza Quincey Thought Catalog article discussing one student’s experience with how the University handled her rape. We decided to plan a protest for Thursday, protesting the way the University handles cases of sexual assault, so I was anxiously anticipating that all week. Wednesday night we organized, planned, and made posters for the protest. Then yesterday, the actual protest took place. A solid amount of people showed up, including students, faculty, and students from other universities. My friend Hana and I read part of the Thought Catalog article, while others read the demands students compiled regarding Butler’s sexual assault policies. Others came forward and said why they were there, and I was shocked and moved by how many people who spoke were survivors of sexual assault. In between speakers, we marched and chanted. It was such an incredibly powerful, emotional experience, and it felt great to know that I was a part of the organization that made the protest happen. A few news stations were there as well, and a snippet of my interview was even on the news.

Aside from the emotions from the protest, I was published on Thought Catalog yesterday! I’ve published with them once in January, so it felt great to have another piece on the site. I wrote about how human beings need to stop comparing themselves to one another because we are made to be different. Then, I went to the Out of the Dawg House Concert, which was in Holcomb Gardens, which is my second favorite place on campus. The concert was great as usual, then afterwards my friends and I went and got ice cream. I had ice cream for dinner. THE GOODNESS DON’T STOP!

Today, the weather is beautiful, I have a friend date with my friend Drew, and I’m going to the Freshly Brewed Concert tonight to watch my friend Allie sing. Weee oooo weee ooo wooo!!! Also, I got tickets to see Twenty One Pilots tomorrow night, so that just adds to greatness and good vibes this week produced.

Have a great weekend, bask in the glory of the sunshine, and thanks for reading :)
