Today I have so much going on. I have actually already done a lot, and it’s only 11 am. Last night I didn’t go to sleep until 3 am. Lately I haven’t been able to sleep normally! This morning I woke up at 9 and got ready. I went to my sister’s to drop off some things that I borrowed from her and also got my new backpack!

Currently I am back on campus helping my friend Billy with my other friend Trey for our exploratory portfolios. These portfolios take forever, which can be really annoying, and also a lot of people don’t know how to use the program so that’s not very helpful! Anyway, after helping Billy we have exploratory class at noon. I mine as well just show my schedule like I usually do.
Now – 1150: Help Billy with portfolio
12 – 1250: Exploratory Class
1-215: Filming for FYS project
225-340: Sex Gender Sexuality Class
345-600: College Mentors For Kids
630-730: Waiting outside to get inside for Butler vs Xavier on ESPN
9 – 11: BUTLER VS XAVIER LIVE ON ESPN!
Basically I have yet to figure out when I am going to be fitting in food in this whole day. I made a sandwich, but that’s for lunch so dinner is looking kind of grim. It is kind of unfortunate how into sports I am and how few girls are not. I think I might have a slight addiction to Butler basketball. Anyway wish me luck if you don’t hear from me for a while I probably died from excitement or exhaustion at the game.. just kidding.
This week is Thanksgiving Break, but you could have fooled me. I feel like I have barely been home except only to sleep, which is basically how I am when I am at school. I live only 25 minutes away from Butler, but I haven’t been back home since Fall Break. I try to stay away from home as much as possible so I actually feel like I am part of campus!
Although I missed home I missed working a lot. This may sound weird to people. Even though my job can be tiresome, stressful, and exhausting at times, I love the people I work with and I love the fact I get to look at clothes all day. I work at Forever 21 and as always here’s a look over my schedule.
Black Friday: 6am – 4pm
Oh yes that is right I am working Black Friday. Last year on Black Friday it was my first day at Forever 21, you could say I am excited to experience Black Friday as an experienced person finally.
With all this work I haven’t really felt like I have been on break. I still have an 8 to 10 page research paper to write that’s due when I get back. I also have my business plan presentation to give when I get back and a paper to write due by Sunday. Most of my friends didn’t get on break until yesterday so everyone is finally home. Hopefully I get to see some of my best friends, but with my schedule who knows, it may have to wait until Christmas Break!
One thing I have been able to do is go to Butler games still and tonight there is a game, so GO DAWGS! Last game I got front row at Dawg Pound because there is basically no one here!
Front row Dawg Pound!!!
As for the video if you have never seen it, just be amazed. Plus COME BACK TO BUTLER JIMMY!!!
A lot of people say they can tell who the freshman are, but there are many times where people ask me if I’m older. I think I finally found a way that upperclassmen can tell how we are freshmen. This has to do with only one word: Scheduling.
Freshmen these past couple of days have been stressed. Not stressed about homework, exams, or even papers but instead scheduling. As each day passed during the week most freshmen saw their wanted classes slowly dwindle away with no more spots. Don’t get me wrong the reason why many of us came to Butler is for small class sizes, but due to these small class sizes sometimes it is hard to get into the class you want to get into.
I’m sure if you walked the sidewalks of Butler these past couple of days you have seen freshmen either on the phone freaking out, talking to people about freaking out, or just freaking out in every class trying to see when other people schedule. You would also see multitudes of us checking our my butler account like it was our job.
I think the days of scheduling are done, and now it’s time to watch and see who drops and adds what. Some classes may begin to open up while others that you really wanted stay closed. I think majority of people got the classes they wanted. We can’t get everything, I mean we are freshmen still lowest on the totem pole.
Currently I’m writing this blog at Wabash, it’s the monon game this weekend. It’s against their biggest rivalry DePauw! Although it sounds super fun I’m going to go support my dawgs in basketball this weekend against Evansville at Evansville! It’s their first official game of the season! Let’s Go DAWGS!
