I Like To Plan Ahead…

I like to plan ahead, but even this amount of planning ahead is even a little ridiculous for me. Currently, I have my housing for my junior and senior year completely squared away as well as my entire life for Junior year. If you find this insane, trust me I completely agree.

While I do love the small campus of Butler, it is sometimes difficult with housing. Since our basketball team’s final four runs a couple of years ago we have recently had a large increase in admissions. This increase is now causing Butler to think of new ways to increase the amount of housing we have on campus!  At Butler you can only live in a house when you are a senior or claim senior status. Before that you have to live in either the dorms or the apartments on campus. Since there are starting to be so many of us, houses are becoming more competitive to get, which is why many sophomores are already signing leases for their senior year. Crazy, right? I know.

Yesterday I officially signed off on where I will be living for my Junior year. I’m living in Apartment Village, and I am extremely excited because my roommates and I got everything we wanted! We wanted second floor, bay window, and a view of the Butler Bowl, Butler’s football field. We got all of that!

My home for junior year, apartment village!

For senior year I am living in a house with my current roommate, and a couple of other people. Our house is super nice and I am really excited!

On top of all this housing shenanigans, in a couple of days I have my meeting with my adviser to plan for all next year. In the Spring I plan to go abroad to Ireland or England, so I have a lot of planning to do with that as well. Basically right now, my entire life is a calendar, and I just keep making it more and more busy, but I think I am used to it by now.
