Awkward Lunch Time

While on break I notice that one thing has been missing from my Tuesdays and Thursday. That one thing missing is awkward lunch!

The first day in my business class I met my friend Lynn. Lynn and I oddly enough had the same schedule where we had business at 11-1215 and then another class at 1. This is why we called it awkward lunch because we had 45 minutes to eat and then leave,which around this time is the busiest time at Atherton. But what started as a little lunch with me, Lynn, and a few others, turned into madness. Awkward lunch is no longer a few people. Instead it consists of the regulars such as Meghan, Kelly, Jimmy, Trey, Lizzie, and Ally. Usually everyday a new person or new face comes to awkward lunch. We always take up a huge table.

Through awkward lunch I have gotten closer to Lynn, and we have both realized our obsession with Butler basketball. I have become closer to Jimmy who now calls me airplane because of my last name and loves my mom’s Asian accent. I have gotten closer to all the other people like Kelly, Meghan, Lizzie, Ally, and Trey just through a simple 45 minutes. I don’t know if I would have ever met any of them prior to awkward lunch besides Lynn, but I’m pretty grateful I did.

So shout out to awkward lunch, and may the days of awkwardness continue.

Only 2 More Days

This week it feels like everything just got piled on in my classes! This past weekend my sister got married, so I did not have that much time to be able to do a lot of homework over the weekend. The wedding was on a gorgeous day looking over Lake Michigan! Here are some pictures from the wedding, I will probably post more later!

Awesome sunset from my sister's wedding!

The wedding was awesome and I am so happy for my sister, but now it’s all back to reality! This week I have so much to do and it is only a three day week! Let me break it down to you what I have to do within this week.

Monday: 2-4 page paper due for Exploratory/Major Fair Paper due
Read 25 pages for class discussion
Tuesday: Wall Street Journal worth 50 points due for Freshmen Business
Freshmen Business Exam worth 100 points
Freshmen Year Seminar midterm
Wednesday: Sex Gender Sexuality in Modern Japan midterm

It does not seem like that much, but it just can be overwhelming. In reality, it is really just Tuesday I am worried about. I know it really is not that much I just have the slightest case of procrastination and with Fall Break being so close it can be really difficult to focus at times. Wish me luck! I’m sure everything will be fine!

Sickness update: Not too bad now. Not coughing as much, but I could not yell at the wedding. I think I lost my voice almost, and I’m out of cough drops… problem.

Here’s a video for you guys. You may hate this song, because it is played so much, but it’s dubstep so it’s pretty much awesome.

Spreading the Butler Love

As I said in a previous blog, I went to Wabash and Purdue this past weekend. It was so much fun! I had some pretty interesting experiences along the way so I thought I would share them.

Driving up to Purdue, to pick up my best friend Sara, was exhausting. Before I left to pick her up I did a team bonding experience that day for my Freshmen Business Experience class. It was really fun, but so tiring. We did a low ropes course and a high ropes course. The high ropes course was awesome and I got to swing down from the top, which I was really nervous about, but I am so glad I did it. Get Real day, which is what they call our team bonding day, started at 9 and ended at 330ish. When I got back to my dorm I packed, showered, and left. I needed a break, but did not have time!

This is how I got down from the high ropes course, so awesome!

On my way to Purdue I needed to stop and get gas. I didn’t think getting gas would turn into a Butler alumni party. On the back of my car I have two stickers, a Butler sticker and my Butler parking sticker, this caused quite the stir. A man pulled up behind me and started talking to me. At first I thought this was extremely weird, but then he explained to me he went to Butler and wished me the best of luck! Then when he left, the car beside me noticed my Butler shirt and asked if I went to school there. I told them that I was a freshman. The whole car freaked out. The couple in the car got engaged in Holcomb Gardens and they were also both alumni. For being such a small school I feel like Butler love is all around!

The Butler sticker that caused all the alumni to talk to me!

Anyway I picked up my best friend Sara and we drove to Wabash. Wabash is so pretty! It reminds me so much of Butler besides the fact it is an all men college. My weekend was great. I was so glad to be able to see some of my closest friends from high school, and then watch my best friend play baseball! No worries though I put Butler everywhere in my best friends room, mainly on their white board! I hope everyone had a great and safe weekend!

Hank's dorm has a cubbie in their hallway, Sara and I found this extremely entertaining to take pictures in.

Oh and I guess I use a lot of exclamation points in my blogs, so Rachel I hope this was not as bad as my other blog! And also I am obsessed with this commercial, but seriously who doesn’t love some party rock and hamsters!
