School’s Out For… Autumn?

Back home in Indiana people are officially on their Summer break. However, for me it is Fall in Australia or the Aussies say Autumn. Either way I’m a little jealous of seeing all the pictures of my friends celebrating finals being over. I’m also a little jealous that everyone from study abroad is home except for me. Don’t get me wrong I love Australia, but I miss home a little bit.

With graduation being tomorrow it’s weird to think that a lot of my friends are graduating and will be doing ‘real life’ things, but I’m so proud of each and every one of them. I know they will make us all proud. It’s even more weird to think that in one year that will be me, but I don’t want to talk about that right now!

To say this school year has been a whirlwind would be an understatement. Last Fall was one of my hardest semesters. It was even more difficult knowing that Australia was just months away. After a brutally cold winter and experiencing a completely different side of recruitment for Greek life along came the almost two month wait before Australia. I thought I was going to lose my mind, but it came faster than I thought. Coming to Australia has by far been the best experience in my time at Butler.

I’m enjoying every moment I have here, but I can’t wait to go back to Butler. I can’t wait to see what will happen in my last and final year. Until then I’ll still be blogging while in Australia just so I can keep track of all the shenanigans I have been doing. However, the bloggers just like everyone else takes a break during the summer time so if you don’t see much from them anymore that’s why!

I would just like to thank everyone for such an amazing academic year whether back home or in Australia. It’s truly being an amazing year. To the seniors I already wrote something on my Facebook to you guys, but I’m so proud of all of you! Congrats! Also congrats to our senior blogger, Andre, I will miss your craziness and shenanigans! You are awesome!

    I backpacked across eastern Australia in my younger days, and I totally understand the longing for friends when you’re away. Back then Facebook wasn’t nearly as popular, so I imagine it’s only gotten worse.

    Yeah, Australia is a nice place to study and get a good degree of international repute. I have created a blog where I educate people on the need to study abroad in places like the UK, US, Australia, Canada and also provide free scholarships. The link can be found here: http://www.study-domain.com.
    Thanks for your article

  14. “You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.”
    ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

    Graduation is an important part of our lives but to be honest, I am a little scared from the “real life” things that you talk about. After all I am curious about what the life has prepared for me and I ready to face it all.
