New Blog?!

Happy day everyone! Since it is now officially summer, my blogging duties for Butler University get a little breaky-break. Since this blog is through the Office of Admissions, and there is no school happening right now (quite obviously), my blogging duties are on hold until school starts up again. I know what you’re thinking…”WHAT? She’s done blogging for the whole summer?! How will I ever carry on without Bekah’s wit and insight three times a week?! Ohhh the humanity!!!!” Well, don’t fret my dear readers. I started up a blog specifically to keep up with during the summer so everyone is happy. You’re welcome.

Prior to keeping this blog this year, I never kept up with a blog for fun, just ones I had to make for school. Well, by golly I loved blogging so much that I decided to make a new blog to keep up with during the summer. I don’t have anything on there yet, but I am going to blog on there at least once a week, and I plan on posting any vlogs I do on there as well, so I’m not out of your lives yet. I will post the link below if you are interested in reading some more of my blog posts.

THE LINK TO MY BLOG IS RIGHT HERE. CLICK ME!

Thank you so very much for reading throughout this past school year, and feel free to scroll through and read all of my hilarious and inspiring (I’m like, really humble) posts from this year.

Oooh, summer.

Have an A+ summer, and thanks for reading :)

Vlog: What I Learned in College

I did a vlog discussing what I learned during my first year of college. The most valuable lesson comes at 3:40, so you should probably watch the whole thing.

Music Monday: Freshly Brewed and Out of the Dawg House

Happy Monday everyone! Freshly Brewed and Out of the Dawg House, Butler’s female and male a Capella groups, had their spring concerts this weekend.  They were both absolutely wonderful and I cannot get over how talented they all are.

Friday night was Freshly Brewed’s concert. As I have mentioned before, my friend Allie is in Freshly Brewed, so I always get extra excited to see them sing. They sang a great variety of songs ranging from “Yesterday” by The Beatles, to “Lego House” by Ed Sheeran, to a sweet Kanye mash-up. The highlight of the evening, by far, was when Allie had a solo! She sang “The Call” by Regina Spektor. I already loved this song, and hearing Allie sing it gave me goosebumps.

Satruday was Out of the Dawg House’s concert, and they were stupdenous. They sang a variety of songs as well. My fave was probably “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison. A close second, though, was “Staying Alive” by The Bee Gees. They were super entertaining and made funny commentary inbetween songs, which made the concert even better.

I’ve mentioned before how I have no musical talent whatsoever, causing me to be super excited and inspired by those who do. Both a Capella groups were so great and I loved both of the concerts so much. I even bought a Freshly Brewed sweatshirt and Out of the Dawg House t-shirt. #Number1Fan. I wore my sweatshirt yesterday and got asked several times if I was in Freshly Brewed, prompting me to explain that I’m just a creepy wanna be. #ADayInTheLife

P.S. I linked both groups’ Facebook pages, so go and like them!!

Best of luck on finals and have a great week :)
