Bulldogs Don’t Let Down

Saturday was quite an eventful day for me. I woke up really pumped for the Butler vs Purdue game. As I was on my way walking out to pick up my friend I come to find out my car had been broken into and some of my stuff was stolen.

Rock thrown into my window!

The window shattered.

This whole situation was very shocking to me. I would have never expected this in the area I live in, but lesson learned. Even though this whole situation happened with my car I was determined to make the game still. Thankfully my friend’s mom was able to take me to Butler to catch the bus for the game.

After the day that I had so far and it was only noon, all I wanted was a Bulldog win. It’s like Brad Stevens and the team had heard my problems of the day, because not only did we win, but we beat PURDUE and in a traditional Butler fashion. We beat Purdue in the final seconds. It was definitely the best game I have seen so far this season.

So even with my car getting broken into and having to deal with that, and even with Butler being down and then coming back one thing is learned that bulldogs never let down. Check out how crazy the crowd went in the final seconds of the game. It feels like March.

Sunday Apple Pickin’

Yesterday my RA took our unit to Stuckey Farm Market, which is a farm for apple picking! It was so much fun! I was not sure if I would be able to make because over the weekend I went to Purdue to visit friends, and tailgate for the Purdue Notre Dame game. On top of that, Sunday from 1-3 I was suppose to have a College Mentors For Kids meeting, but thankfully it only took 45 minutes instead of 2 hours!

What do Boilermakers do? BOILER UP!

There were 10 of us that went apple picking! I had never been to the farm we went to, I usually go to one in Noblesville called Tuttle’s. Stuckey’s was really cool though. I felt like their farm was a lot bigger than Tuttle’s. We were able to get a lot of apples, and eat a lot while we were walking too. Apples from the farm, like anything else, are so much better than store bought. They taste so juicy! All the apples looked so good!

Apples on the ground that still looked awesome!

At times we got a bit dangerous and lifted girls up to get the best apples. One of the girls on my floor, Sara, told us that the best apples to pick are at the top of the tree, which makes sense, hence the reasoning behind our lifting up girls. As we were leaving I saw little pumpkins for 50 cents, so I bought some to decorate my desk! We also listened to a lot of old school music on the way back to Butler, which is always a plus! We are suppose to make caramel apples soon, so I am pretty pumped!

By the way I would just like to give a shout out to anyone whose has dealt with my cough this past weekend and currently. Being sick is the worst thing ever!

Here’s a video from my high school, Lawrence North, where a lot of people like to Bernie… even our principal who is a Butler Alum!
