For the first time in 4 years I DID NOT WORK BLACK FRIDAY. My first day ever in retail back when I was a junior in high school was Black Friday, so of course I had gotten used to the dreaded day. However, not having to work retail today was the best feeling ever.

I was able to experience a lot for the first time not working Black Friday. There was no waking up at 3 AM to make it to work at 4 AM. I didn’t have to fold any clothes or ring up people at the cash register for my entire shift. I didn’t have to deal with crazed customers trying to get clothes that are already cheap to begin with. Did I mention I worked at Forever 21? How clothes can get any cheaper there I really have no idea. On top of that the girls I know working there now had to do a double shift today.

Instead of dealing with crowds of crazy people going out at all hours of the night I slept in. Ate leftovers. Caught up with Scandal (Yes, I finished 3 seasons in 4 days it’s embarrassing) Watched a great game of the dawgs, which didn’t end up the way I wanted it, but nonetheless was still a great game. Now I am just writing this blog to explain how after 4 years of Black Fridays, I might miss the craziness a little bit… Who am I kidding? No Black Friday today was amazing! But to all those in retail I understand your pain and for that reason I stayed in today! Here’s a video to get you excited for the season!

Proud To Be A Dawg

If you have not been watching the Maui Invitational you are missing out on what the Dawgs do all the time, give their fans heart attacks. You are also missing out on amazing shots like Rotnei Clarke’s shot that blogger Andrew talked about. No matter what though the Dawgs are playing amazing, and as usual we were considered the underdawg, but we proved that wrong once again.

Many of the students know at Butler that the nation considers ourselves as a Cinderella story, but we don’t see ourselves like that. There is no miracle in what we do, it’s what we do as dawgs. We fight til the end whether it’s in our athletics or our academics. This may sound extremely cheesy to you if you aren’t a Butler student or alumni, but I’m pretty sure if you looked at my Twitter right now we are all passionate about Butler. It’s awesome that the Maui Invitational can bring the nation to see once again that while we maybe underdawgs we fight all the way to the end.

I can’t wait until the dawgs are back home so that I can cheer front row in Dawg Pound, cheering in my living room isn’t working out too well… my mom asked me to calm down and then started complaining in Japanese… Whoops.

While you can see the actual shot on Andrew’s blog, check out this video of fan reaction!
