Packing For Dummies

For most trips I take a lot of time and effort to plan everything out. However with Australia it seems like I am literally just packing every article of clothing I have. This makes packing seem so less important, which is definitely not the case.

While in Australia I will be there for three different seasons! When I arrive it will still be summer time and when I leave it will be the beginning of winter, which means I get my favorite season of the year fall! Although I have heard Australia seasons are a little warmer than ours, obviously :) Thankfully my airliner allows two free bags, but I’m worried about how I’m going to walk around with all this stuff.

I’m pretty sure I’m the last Butler person to leave for Australia. This will probably be my last blog before I leave! I have 2 days left, and I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m sure this is really reassuring to my family. However, it’s starting to really settle in that I will be gone for 4 months. I can’t wait to share my experiences with you guys. Hopefully I come back alive with no kangaroo attacks or koala attacks to report.

I know there are a lot of my friends at Butler that say they will live vicariously through me. Trust me I will be doing the same with you guys. While I know I will have the time of my life I will still miss each and every one of you at Butler. I can’t wait to hear how Spring Sports goes, how amazing Spring Break trips are, and I especially cannot wait to hear where all the seniors get their first real people job! Until then live away vicariously through my life. As always I will be blogging, tweeting, facebook, and Instagram!

I’m sure I’ve posted this before, but I cannot stop listening to this song!

Music Monday: Packing List

I have definitely been slacking with the blogs lately, but with everyone leaving and packing up it has been kind of crazy to get everything that I need to get accomplished done! So I thought I would throw out a few songs that I have been listening to while I pack.

#1. The Paper Kites – Bloom
This song is a little mellow, but I can’t stop listening to it. It kind of goes with the mood of moving out of the house. The mixture of the two voices of the girl and guy are really sweet.

#2. Logic – All I Do
If you know me then you knew there would have to be some rap on this list. I really like this song because of the beat behind it. It’s a pretty simple beat, but the piano background is what gets me. It’s not like the typical rap I listen to that is intense, this is way more laid back, which is a change of pace for me.

#3. Venice – The Lighthouse and the Whalers
So lately I have been listening to a lot of indie bands and this is one of them. I think you can start to see a pattern in the type of indie bands I like, but I really just like the way they sing. I like voices that don’t sound so mainstream and this guys voice definitely doesn’t sound like the norm that’s out there.

This music Monday may not have been eventful, but it’s difficult when I’m still trying to pack my life away, so hopefully tomorrow I can give a full blog about what’s going on! There are a lot of new things that I can’t wait to share. Until then happy packing everyone!
