Happy Monday! This Music Monday is devoted to City and Colour. City and Colour is the stage name for musician Dallas Green (get it, city and color?!). Green used to be in a post-hardcore band called Alexisonfire. This is incredibly funny to me because the music he makes as City and Colour is so incredibly mellow it could not be further from hardcore. Green’s music is acoustic and melodic and is very relaxing.
He has released three albums, Sometimes, Bring Me Your Love, and Little Hell, as well as nine extended plays. Here are a few of my favorite songs by City and Colour. I hope everyone is enjoying break, and thanks for reading
“Hello, I’m in Delaware”
“Save Your Scissors”
Winter break has officially begun. Yippie skippie!!! As I said in my last post, I finished finals on Wednesday. Since I was done with finals, I went home with my roommate Ashni for the afternoon. She is from Westfield, Indiana and lives only about 20 minutes away from Butler. Westfield is close to Carmel, so while we were home, we hit up the Carmel Arts District.
This area was incredibly cool. There were a bunch of different shops and bakeries, and some really neat art galleries. My favorite aspect of the district was the various statues sprinkled throughout the area. Me being the expert model that I am, had to take a picture with each and every one of these statues. Here are a few of my faves!

This trip was a great start to my break, and yesterday was fun too! I got home yesterday, but on my way out of town, my friend Kelsi and I hit up the mall and did some shopping, kicking our break off right. I am really looking forward to being home, relaxing, and spending time with the fam. Have a fabulous break, and thanks for reading
Happy Wednesday to all! Even though we have been on break this week, I have been incredibly busy! As I said in my post from Friday, my roommate Ashni came home with me for the first few days of break. She got to meet my friends, see the exciting city that is Peoria, Illinois, and even meet my grandma (the one who hates me). Ashni left on Sunday afternoon and I miss her already!

On Monday I went to Chicago with my friends Allison and Hannah to visit our friend Maddie. Maddie goes to Loyola University and she still had class on Monday and Tuesday, so we decided to visit her for a day! We got to meet Maddie’s friends and go downtown and shop. We also ate dinner at the Grande Lux Café and got a delicious molten lava cake dessert. Basically, it was a great time.

Other than that, I have been seeing lots of friends and getting excited for Thanksgiving. The whole fam is coming over to our house for Thanksgiving dinner so I have really been looking forward to it. My birthday is on Friday so I am also looking forward to that quite a bit! One more exciting tid-bit: I am going to be filming a vlog with my awkwardly-charming younger brother Ben that is going up on Friday, so watch out for that! Have a fabulous Thanksgiving and a great rest of the week! Thanks for reading
Happy Friday everyone! Everyone is heading home for Thanksgiving Break today and excitement is in the air! I am SO excited to be going home for break. My roommate Ashni is coming home with me for the first few days of break and I cannot wait for her to see my town, meet my friends, and spend time with my family! Ashni is incredibly excited too-she has had a countdown on her dry erase board for the past twenty-something days. We are friends.

I am also really excited for this next week because my birthday is next Friday. I love birthdays, not just my own. I get excited for birthdays for people I don’t even know (I’m a creep, judge me). It will be great to be home for my birthday because I will get to spend it with my friends and family. I am also looking forward to catching up on television (particularly The Voice and Modern Family) and just relaxing! I have watched literally no television since I have been at school so I have fallen behind on all of my shows! I am planning on sewing a bit while I am home (who knows if that will happen) so if I make anything significant, I will definitely post some pictures!
Classic Joke of the week: What is a pilgrim’s favorite music? Plymouth Rock!
Happy Friday, have a great break, and thanks for reading
