I will admit, I am a busy bee. I love being constantly busy and I love watching my little planner fill up or calendar board fill up. I guess I get this weird satisfaction of knowing I have something scheduled or planned. I love being involved in a lot of things, and at Butler it is so easy to do that.
Right now I am a Morton Finney Scholar, involved with College Mentor For Kids, and the Emerging Leaders Program. Being a Morton Finney Scholar allows me to participate in many activities around the community and also allows me to benefit the community in ways of leadership and community service.
College Mentors For Kids (CMFK) is awesome. Today we actually get to meet our kids so I am really excited. CMFK is a program that allows college students to mentor inner city kids. I’m sure there will be plenty of blogs where I talk about CMFK, but since today is the first day we meet the kids I don’t know what to expect!
The Emerging Leaders Program is a program where students can learn how to become better leaders in their community and within Butler. We have a meeting every Thursday and also individual meetings with our mentors. My mentor is Amanda she is so nice and it’s so easy to talk with her about the program and just life in general! At our meetings for Emerging Leaders we have guest speakers come in and we do different activities so it is a really awesome program that I am very excited about!
I definitely plan on getting involved with a lot more on campus. Many students say not to get involved with too much, but get involved with a couple organizations. For me, a lot of the programs I am involved in go hand in hand with each other so I feel like I am not overdoing it. I will let you know if it gets worse next semester when I start rushing and sorority life hopefully! Until then, I need to go outside and study it is just too pretty!
Update on my sickness: I’m still sick. I feel terrible for my roommate that has to hear me cough all through the night, and the multiple classes that have to hear me cough all through class. Also anyone that I Skype because I’m sure it sounds lovely to hear that! I bought medicine yesterday so let’s hope it gets better!!
Also check out this awesome video of Butler students (including me!) trying to get Jimmy Fallon back to Butler. For the Super Bowl Jimmy Fallon will be doing 4 shows in Indy and since Jimmy has been to Butler once, we are trying to get him back to Butler! COME BACK TO BUTLER JIMMY! P.S. I am in the second row, check out my awesome dance moves
