Last night my friends and I went to Dayglow or what is now known as Life in Color. It was at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. It’s basically a huge rave where there are many DJ’s that come out and play for you and then people throw paint everywhere.
I was able to go with a lot Pi Phi’s, but while there I saw so many Butler students and later found out that a lot of people that I went to high school were there as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see everyone I wanted to see because there were so many people there! I feel like I pretty much got a workout there. Although it started at 8, my friends and I didn’t get there until about 845, which was perfect because they didn’t start throwing paint until 9. We managed to get really close to the front… I’m pretty good at pushing my way through.
From the back of DayGlow right before leaving!
From 9-12 we stayed there. For 3 hours we basically jumped around and danced the entire time with no break, which is why I say that I got a workout. While this probably sounds all crazy, it is. When I got back from Dayglow my hair looked wet because of how much paint was in it. My face was covered in paint, and my white shirt turned into tie dye, but I’m not mad at all. It was an awesome experience.
My sisters and I at Dayglow midway through! More paint was still on it's way...
One little awesome detail about going to Butler, we are so close to everything. A lot of people at Dayglow came from Purdue, IU, Wabash, and other Indiana colleges. Most of these colleges are anywhere from 45 to 1/1.5 hour away from where Dayglow was held last night. Butler is only 5-10 minutes away from where it was held! So grateful for Butler’s location near the city!
In typical fashion I have already planned ahead for the next ten weekends of my life. To some this may seem ridiculous, but I plan everything in advance because I don’t really like surprises. I’m not really anal about what I do I just like knowing so that when other people ask I can answer them right away!
Not that anyone cares, but here are my next ten weekends:
This weekend: Philanthropy events for Alpha Chi, Phi Psi/Timmy, and Theta. Going to Wabash to see my friend and go to Lambda’s Watermelon Bust!
9/28-9/30: This weekend is our Dad’s Day. Dad’s Day is what the sorority houses do and invite their dads. We usually tailgate and just hang out with all our Pi Phi dad’s!
10/5-10/7: This weekend is Pi Phi’s philanthropy event Arrowspike. We have lip syncs and a volleyball tournament. Also we have Pie a Pi Phi where you can pie us in the face!
10/12-10/14: Fall Break is this weekend! My roommate Rori and I are going to Michigan to go see the Michigan vs Michigan State game!
10/19-10/21: Homecoming Weekend! This year is exciting because our homecoming game is at night!
10/26-10/28: Dayglow, Voodoo, and our new Pi Phi’s get initiated this weekend! It should be a lot of fun!!
11/2-11/4: This is my birthday weekend and also Parent’s weekend at Butler!
11/9-11/11: Pi Phi Formal is this weekend!
11/16-11/18: This is the weekend that kicks off Thanksgiving!
11/23-11/25: Thanksgiving Break!
As you can see I was not joking! I’m sure other things will pop up as the weeks go by! On top of that I still have to do what I’m actually going to Butler for, which is school! So bring on the midterms and papers that will also be popping up along the way. Good thing I have planned every thing out!
