Blue II’s Birthday

Happy Friday everyone! Today is Butler Blue II’s birthday. The former mascot is turning 9 today, and there was a big party in the bookstore and Starbucks earlier this afternoon. There were cameras, cookies, cupcakes, and a lot of people. Let me remind you that Blue II is a dog.

Personally, I have nothing against Blue II. He’s been our school mascot for many years and everybody loves him. The thing I don’t understand is why there was a birthday party for a dog. All I know is that I have never had such a bangin’ party (my family forgot my birthday once, but that’s a story for another time), and I’d like to think I’m more likeable than a bulldog. Apparently not. Apparently no human being is more likeable than an bulldog because I have never heard of the news being at an average human’s birthday bash.

I’m not complaining exactly because I would by lying to you if I said I didn’t take advantage of the free Insomnia Cookies at the party, but I would also be lying if I said that I thought throwing a dog a birthday party was a casual thing to do. Oh well, whatever floats your boat I suppose.

I was informed that Tripp’s birthday falls over Christmas break, so I wonder what the party situation will be for his birthday next year. We should probably have one party before break and one once we come back, just to be safe. I mean, that’s the logical thing to do. As long as there are free cookies, I guess it’s alright.

Have a great weekend and thanks for reading :)

Fall Break

“Well, you’re not fat.” Those were the kind, first words my grandmother greeted me with upon seeing me home from college (she is quite the character and says similarly lovely things to me on a regular basis, so she will probably get her own post sometime). Sadly, fall break is drawing to a close. I had not been home since the start of school, so it has been absolutely lovely seeing my family and friends from back home, not to mention sleeping in my own bed.

My family (minus my older brother) when they came and visited a few weeks ago!

Since being home I realized how many little things from back home I took for granted. As I just mentioned, sleeping in my own bed. I’m not saying my bed at Butler prevents me from a fitful sleep (I love sleeping so much, I could honestly sleep anywhere), but nothing compares to your own bed. Another thing that has been really nice is not having to wear shoes into the bathroom or shower. The first shower I took upon arriving home, without shower shoes I might add, was glorious! The water made my skin feel soft, it didn’t have a funny smell to it, and I didn’t have to wear shoes. I had never felt so alive! Another spectacular thing about being home is the food. My mother is an excellent cook and she bakes a lot so it was nice to walk in the door, greeted by brownies, cookies, and candy (This is not a rare occurrence, sweets account for most of the food in my house). Having home cooked meals has been splendid as well.

Although I have loved being home, I do already miss my friends from school, as strange as that sounds since we have only been apart for a few days. Being home is the bee’s knees, but I am anxious to get back to Butler and keep trekking on until coming home for Thanksgiving where there will be even more reunions, and more importantly, even more food!! Enjoy the rest of break, have safe trips back to school, and thanks for reading :)

P.S. I have an older brother. He isn’t not in the picture because we don’t love him, he is off at school at the University of Illinois so he wasn’t there when it was taken!
