If you have read any of my blogs from last year, you may know that I like to make fun of my family… A LOT, mainly my mom. Although as my sister gets older she is starting to do similar things as my mom and now it’s becoming hilarious.
The latest fix for my mom and sister has been Groupon. Groupon is a website where deals for services, items, food, and pretty much anything you can think of are put on the website daily. Although Groupon is amazing and does have great deals that you should check out, my mom and sister are taking it to the extremes! During the summer, my mom surprised me with diamond earrings, and a dinner to a Japanese restaurant. My mom is not a big spender so when this happened I was a little weirded out. Next thing I know she bought a purse, headphones, and other random things. Her response to where she gets these things in her Japanese accent, “oh, groupon.”
My sister on the other hand has now dragged me into workouts that she bought off of Groupon. At first I was apprehensive, but now that I have been going to these classes I love it. We are both going to Indy Boot Camps. It’s kind of like the show The Biggest Loser. It’s nonstop workout for an hour and we go Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 615-715. I have Spanish from 6-740 on Thursdays so I can’t go but I try to make up at the HRC (Health and Rec Cetner). There will be a full blog on this later because basically it’s kicking me in the butt.
Now that my family seems to be obsessed with Groupon it has now become my addiction to check Groupon everyday, which is terrible because lately I have started this shopping addition. I’m sure my Dad is thrilled.
In case you missed seeing Blue 2 and Blue 3, here’s a video for the summertime of them eating some Watermelon.
A local news station showed a report last night about college admissions particularly pertaining to Butler. The reporter got to take an inside like at Butler admissions. A lot of people consider college admissions to be a secret or a mystery. The clip, which you can see by clicking the link, makes me wonder how I got into Butler.
I do not mean to post this to scare anyone! Butler does have really high standards, which was why out of the seven schools I applied to Butler was one that I was really worried about. What I love about the video though is that if you are admitted into Butler you have to be somewhat special. This year a little over 10,000 people applied to Butler. We can only accept a class of 1000. The thought of this is mind boggling!
Today at lunch a lot of my friends and I were wondering what could have sparked the eyes of one of the admissions counselors into picking us. But this is where Butler I feel is different from other schools. In the video it shows how unlike other schools it seems at least five people will see your application at Butler, and that’s if you have no red flags. If you have a red flag, which is explained in the video, then you may get looked at by up to 12 people. It’s insane to think that I made it past that many people’s opinions and thoughts about being a good choice for Butler.
After watching the video and how intensely everything gets looked at I am just blessed that I was able to make it. The video also made me realize how I never want to be an admissions counselor ever in my life.
Here’s a video of Blue 3, this is how far the obsession of Butler University goes for this dog. Yes, we will watch videos of him yawning, sleeping, and dreaming.
If you didn’t know we have a new bulldog on campus! Blue 2 is still around, but he now has Blue 3 aka Trip to teach and learn the ways of being a Butler bulldog.
Blue 3 aka Trip!
Butler wasted no time in getting Trip his own Twitter, Facebook, and website started. There are many rumors going around about Trip, and whether Blue 2 is healthy or not. According to reliable sources from Butler, Blue 2 is still healthy and well, so Trip will most likely not be stepping up anytime soon.
Trip is all the rage around campus right now. People are trying to find any chance to be able to see Trip. Today there was a meet and greet with him at Starbucks. He seems really sleepy most of the time, but I would be too with the amounts of events he is doing! His announcement was a huge deal, and many news channels were here on his introduction day at Hinkle. The day Trip was announced at Hinkle there was an audience of over 10000 people awaiting his arrival. He has also been on many news stations around the area. Check out this video for the day when Blue 3 was announced from Blue 2′s point of view!
If you want to get to know more about Trip I suggest you check out his twitter, facebook, or website! He is possibly the cutest puppy I have ever seen! Many tweets from Butler students said something like, “The only school I know where students will flock to Starbucks to see a dog #butlerstudentproblems” I will have to agree, I am pretty sure we are the only school to see this happen, and also see grown college men gushing over a dog.
