Planning My Life

Believe it or not scheduling is just right around the corner for next semester. My adviser sent me an email on what I should have prepared for our advising meeting and to say the least I feel like I am getting extremely old.

It’s weird to think that after this year I will be half done with my college career, and seeing questions that ask what do you plan on doing after college freak me out. In the past two weeks, I’ve been to meetings about internships and learning about the professional field of what I want to do in Public Relations. Needless to say I am a little freaked out but mostly excited, but as many of you know I am trying to perfect my college plan.

I never thought I would say this but I actually do not want to leave school. There is so much left that I want to learn and not enough time. If I have any advice for those of you still in high school pick a foreign language and stick with it, because not coming in with any credit toward a language is causing me so much stress at this point. Every one tells me it’s not a huge deal, but when I’m trying to study abroad in Spain and still am in Spanish 101 at this point, it’s kind of a big deal.

I will try not to rip my hair out at my adviser meeting, and at this point I’m just trying to stay positive even though it may not seem like it! Other than that I’m extremely excited about all the Strategic Communication classes that I get to take next semester! Wish me luck!

Here’s a video from Google Chrome, which I just had to do an analysis on their ad campaign. I think this one is so cute!

That’s a Freshman

A lot of people say they can tell who the freshman are, but there are many times where people ask me if I’m older. I think I finally found a way that upperclassmen can tell how we are freshmen. This has to do with only one word: Scheduling.

Freshmen these past couple of days have been stressed. Not stressed about homework, exams, or even papers but instead scheduling. As each day passed during the week most freshmen saw their wanted classes slowly dwindle away with no more spots. Don’t get me wrong the reason why many of us came to Butler is for small class sizes, but due to these small class sizes sometimes it is hard to get into the class you want to get into.

I’m sure if you walked the sidewalks of Butler these past couple of days you have seen freshmen either on the phone freaking out, talking to people about freaking out, or just freaking out in every class trying to see when other people schedule. You would also see multitudes of us checking our my butler account like it was our job.

I think the days of scheduling are done, and now it’s time to watch and see who drops and adds what. Some classes may begin to open up while others that you really wanted stay closed. I think majority of people got the classes they wanted. We can’t get everything, I mean we are freshmen still lowest on the totem pole.

Currently I’m writing this blog at Wabash, it’s the monon game this weekend. It’s against their biggest rivalry DePauw! Although it sounds super fun I’m going to go support my dawgs in basketball this weekend against Evansville at Evansville! It’s their first official game of the season! Let’s Go DAWGS!
