Let The Finals Begin

I’m getting all too familiar with the view at Irwin. Second floor is my normal spot, you can usually find me in the stacks somewhere usually with my friend Kelsey. Currently, I am studying for my Religions of the World final that I have tomorrow at one.

I already got my Starbucks fix, which I needed because I already took a nap at 630 – 7 in Irwin. Speaking of Starbucks if you didn’t know they have a secret menu! It’s awesome. Right now I am drinking a Red mocha, which is white chocolate/chocolate mocha and two shots of raspberry. Click the link to see the awesome secret menu!

Shockingly I am not too stressed about finals week. I am slightly worried, but all this studying has me pumped. I feel pretty confident so hopefully I am not jinxing myself. Plus Butler has been awesome with their stress less week, which they had really awesome things. They had dogs come in, doodle night at A Town and so many other things.

Hopefully all this fun/stress free life stays with me through finals week! Good luck everyone! Just to keep you from not going crazy, check out what Butler frat, Phi Delt, did to their house! So awesome!

My First Semester

Being a freshman I cannot believe my first semester is already done. It’s so weird to think that just a short amount of time ago I was moving into my dorm on the first day to now preparing for finals.

College is a LOT more difficult than high school. I have never studied this much in life, but from studying so much I feel so accomplished with myself. I have no regrets in anything this past semester and I can see how I have improved already. I thought in high school I would definitely have a C in a class, but I can proudly say that is not the case. I’m sure my parents are thrilled I thought I would be getting C’s, but I was definitely afraid of college classes at first!

In my writing I can see how I have already improved. Looking at my first papers compared to now my grades have continued to increase and I continue to receive better comments from professors on every paper.

My first semester has not been all studying though, as many of you know by reading my blogs I had so much fun this past semester. I was able to attend three concerts during the school year, visit other colleges to see friends, see my sister get married, and so many other events. I have also met so many people and I am thankful for everyone in my life! I am so grateful to be able to attend a school of talented, intelligent, and awesome people.

I still have finals to get through, but second semester here I come.
