Slacking

Happy Friday to all! These past few weeks have been crazy busy due to dance team and Greek life things getting ready for homecoming. Because of this, I apologize for my lack of creative posts lately. Since the homecoming game is tomorrow and everything is winding down, I promise my blogging will be back on point.

I also need to get back into vlogging. If you haven’t seen my vlogs, give this here link a little click and educate yourself! I have several vlogs in mind, and will start filming those again lickity split. I also have a few humorous posts in mind, so you have that to look forward to, yeah? I also apologize for the lameness of this post, but I feel it is my duty as a blogger to update you on why I have been struggling lately. Please forgive me, dear reader. This is my last boring post, and I promise I will be back to my usual greatness (I’m like, really humble) soon.

Here’s a funny video for your troubles. (Fun fact: my friend Sam can recite this video word for word. #Cray)

Have a great AND SAFE weekend, and thanks for reading :)

Finals

Happy Thursday everyone! I do apologize for my lack of creativity in these blog posts lately. Just like everyone else on campus, I have been incredibly busy with finals shtuff. Wrapping up loose ends for the end of the year/studying for finals has been consuming my life, but it will all be over soon enough!

Since I am an art + design major, a lot of my work for finals was due last week at Art Now. Although I had a lot due then, the fun didn’t stop there! I have to write a manifesto for my art history class, which is proving to be incredibly challenging, as well as make a visual for it. I also have to create an artist website, complete with a bio, artist statement, and resume for another one of my art classes. So much art, so little time.

The final for my FYS was simple enough. We just had to answer some short essay questions. The only test final I have is for my urban ecology class, and let me tell you, I cannot wait for that to be over. I am not a sciencey person in the slightest, so I am anxiously awaiting the day that science can be out of my life forever.

The awkward, "finals are over!!" celebration dance.

My journalism class’ final was a paper, which I turned in last week, so I just need to finish up my art and urban ecology stuff and I will be free!

Have a great end to the week, thanks for reading, and keep rockin’ those finals :)

Art Now

Happy Thursday all! Art Now was this Tuesday and Wednesday, and it was a success! If you are unaware, Art Now is the art show put on by Butler’s art students at the end of each semester. The show takes place in the Reilly Room and lasts two days. Being an Art + Design major, I had all of my work from this semester in the show.

I displayed my body of work, which was a relational art piece about how people interact and forge friendships. I also displayed a piece I made out of a busted up George Forman Grill, as well as a collage of sexual innuendos. Art is fun.

"Innuendo? InYOURendo"

I absolutely loved all of the displays, and seeing all of my fellow classmate’s work was great. My favorite aspect of the show was the dance floor. There was a taped off section of the floor that you had to dance through whenever you crossed it, and on Wednesday, one of my professors and two of my classmates and I had a silent dance party. This consists of each participant listening to music on their iPod and dancing together as if the music is playing throughout the room. We looked like fools because there was only music playing in our ears, but it was great.

I also really enjoyed an interactive piece made by my friend and classmate, Britt. She made a mermaid tail and encouraged people to get inside the tail, take a picture, and post it with the hashtag #ArtNowMermaid. I most certainly took a picture, as did many other people. It was great fun!

P.S. If you missed the show, or if you just really love art, swing by the Art Annex past AV and check out Art at the Annex, featuring work from two senior majors. It will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. tomorrow!

Me, being a mermaid.

Good luck on finals, and have a great end of the week :)

Music Monday: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in Concert

Happy Music Monday, all! Last Wednesday, I saw Macklemore and Ryan Lewis in concert. They played at Indiana University, and let me tell you, it was quite an eventful evening.

I went with my friends Sam and Katie, and we got to the concert about 15 minutes before it was supposed to start. Since we didn’t get there too early, we expected a long line waiting to get in. To our surprise, there was hardly anyone in the parking lot, and absolutely no line. When we got to the door, the security guards acted like we could just walk through, then abruptly were all like “Ohh oh! Hold up. Nice try!” They looked through our bags and let us through the door. It was weird.

We found our seats and looked out across the barren arena and were further confused by the lack of audience members. The first opener, Talib Kweli, performed, but it felt like no one was listening. It was like when you’re talking with a group of people, but no one is really listening to the person trying to talk to everyone. A few more people showed up, and a rapper named Wale (pronounced wall-aayy) performed next. Wale was horrible. All I can say is no way Wale, no way. He had the whole audience chanting incredibly offensive lyrics to one of his songs for a good five minutes, and it successfully made me uncomfortable. After that episode, he invited players from the IU basketball team onto the stage where they rapped and danced with him. They are basketball players. Not celebrities. Not rappers. It was so, so strange.

After Wale, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took the stage. They were incredible! Macklemore danced around the stage the whole time and talked to the audience about the origin of each song before he performed it. Before “Thrift Shop,” he spotted a guy in the audience with a fur coat and asked if he could wear it for the song.

The whole crew in action.

He did, and it was great. “Same Love” was one of my favorites, as was “And We Danced.” He was so, so fun to watch and I think I want to be his best friend. If you ever have the chance to go see him, please do. It will be a great time even if the rest of the evening is incredibly weird.

P.S. I’ll put a video I took of “Same Love” at the bottom!

Have a great week and thanks for reading :)
