This fall break my roommate, Rori, and I went to the University of Michigan to visit her friend Arie! It was insane. Going to Michigan is completely different from Butler for obvious reasons like size. University of Michigan has about 30,000 while Butler has over 4000. Not only that the atmosphere is very different. Football at Michigan is huge unlike at Butler.
The Big House is what Michigan’s football stadium is called and it totally deserves its title. It is the largest college stadium in the nation. It fits 109,000 people in the stadium at full capacity. We went to the Michigan vs University of Illinois game and although it was pouring and freezing it was still awesome to experience. Arie was able to get us student tickets so that was exciting.
The Big House!
The weird thing about going to the Michigan game is it didn’t get me more excited about football, but just more excited for Butler basketball. Yes I realize how weird this is, but I cannot wait! Although I will say if you’ve never been to a Michigan game you need to experience it.
Overall this fall break was a lot of fun, but now it’s back to reality with school.
You always know on Butler campus when it’s getting close to a break, because all of sudden it’s like our professors huddle to together and stack tests on tests on tests or major assignments all due before break. Currently as I type this many are tucked away inside rooms trying to figure out why they didn’t study three days before.
This was me last night, and now that I am finally free for Fall Break it’s sad that I can’t play around my house because everyone is so busy studying. It’s so nice to just relax. Today was insane. I had a test in my first class, a speech that is worth half my grade in my second class, and an in class write in my Spanish class. Monday was total misery for me considering I spent the entire day just studying or working on things that had to be done.
Finally I can work out, hang out, get things organized, and get ready for break. I’m going to Michigan with my roommate Rori to visit some of her friends. I’m really excited to see the Michigan vs Michigan State game! It should be fun!
Good luck to all of Butler, because by the looks of Starbucks tonight everyone is currently cramming.
Here’s a video that I love especially after beating the Packers this past Sunday! This is a great speech by someone who is going through a lot in his own life right now. COLTSRONG & CHUCKSTRONG
Typically my course load is not that bad. Compared to a lot of other people my classes are mainly all reading. I don’t have that many tests or assignments, and I usually can just read and be fine in my classes. This week is a different story.
About an hour ago I took an exam for my Strategic Communications class. I think I did pretty well, but I’m not completely sure. It was difficult to study for just because I had so much going on last week with classes as well as social/greek life.
Today I have to study all day again, because I have another exam tomorrow in my media literacy class. It doesn’t help that I stayed up until 2 this morning and woke back up again at 630 to continue studying, but in a sense this is all my fault. After I take this test tomorrow I am done with tests for the week, but then next week I have a lot to do again!
Next Tuesday I have tests in three out of my four classes in one day. Some times I wish I was still in middle school when all the teachers discussed about when they were having tests so they were not all jammed packed… Welcome to real life, I guess.
Even though right now is slightly stressful, Fall Break is right around the corner and I can’t wait. Until then I’m praying I make it through these tests!
Here’s a flash mob I participated in for Sigma Chi Derby Days this past week!
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!
