One Word. One Show. Scandal.

The show, Scandal, has literally taken over my life. If you haven’t watched Scandal do not, I repeat, DO NOT start watching it until you have enough days in your life to just keep watching. Once one episode ends you cannot stop, you must continue. This is true considering I have finished one season and am on episode 9 on the second season and this has happened in a span of 2-3 days.

Scandal has now become my guilty pleasure. The show is about Olivia Pope who runs a crisis management firm, but on the side she is having an affair with the President of the United States. I didn’t think I would become this addicted to the show, but each episode has twist and turns that sometimes I have to rewind and reprocess what just happened. Texting or snapchatting during episodes can make you miss very important details or facts, so basically at this point I have closed myself off from the world.

The past two days of my life has gone as follows. Sleep. Work. Eat. Watch Scandal. Repeat. So please for your own sake make sure you have a solid 3-4 days set aside to watch Scandal. No distractions. I’m writing you this blog just to take a breather from Scandal, but the hiatus is over, back to watching Scandal I go.

Ahead of the Game

While I love my family I find it funny at times at the things they don’t know about applications on the iPhone. It is interesting to me how many applications there are and how many college students it takes in a matter of seconds for everyone to find it.

For example, currently there is a ton of people using snapchat, which I mentioned in my last blog. Snapchat is an application where you can take a picture and send it to your friend, but the picture only last how long you want it to. If you decide you want the picture to show for 5 seconds it shows for 5 seconds, and then disappears. You can never see the photo again after that. This has basically caused an entire outburst of the most unattractive photos that you could ever take.

When I explained to my mom what snapchat was she related it to Mission Impossible and said “oh it’s like mission impossible it self destructs in 3,2,1… boom.” Yes my mom also did the sound effects with it. My sister on the other hand doesn’t understand why snapchat is even used or the purposed and says that we are crazy. I haven’t even tried to explain this to my dad, because I’m worried about how long the explanation will take, and my brother is pretty much stuck in parentville.

Once I find out another application I am sure that will be all the rage and that snapchat will soon be forgotten, but for now you might want to try snapchat. Just in case you’re confused here’s a video on how to use snapchat.

Why Libraries Scare Me

Recently I just received a job as a Butler Student Ambassador. As a Butler Student Ambassador we give tours to those interested in looking at Butler. Typically on these tours many parents ask the typical questions about weekends, class sizes, majors offered,etc. You also get questions about where to study, and this is where the situation for me gets difficult.

While majority of people think the library is the best place in the world to study, I personally hate it. There are three main reasons why I hate the library:

1.) It’s too quiet
2.) I get easily distracted
3.) I do weird things

To start out with reason number one, I know you are probably saying that is the whole purpose of a library and studying. Personally though I cannot focus in dead silence. My roommates will be the first to tell you that when I have my headphones in I am not talking to anyone, and completely focused on what I am doing. In a library typically my music is too loud in my headphones to the point where those around me can hear it, so that’s probably not good.

For reason number two, you may be wondering how one gets distracted in the library. Well I am like a five year old, I see a shiny object and have to see what it is. The same is true for when people come in out of the library I always want to see who it is, and then when I see who it is and I know them I either want to text them, say hi, or snapchat them. Yes, this is what my life has ended up to.

Finally for reason number three, I do a lot of weird things. If any of you were to receive snapchats from me then you probably know that I am not normal. I also don’t like to look presentable when studying, I would rather just wear sweatpants, no make up, and not have to wear shoes.

Libraries are just not for me, but if you really want to know we have two at Butler that are pretty awesome (Irwin and the Science library).
