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!

Creative PowerPoints Recieve Big Rewards.

It’s that time of the year when many college students and even high school students can only thing about one thing. Spring Break. Whether you are headed to Florida, Cali, maybe even Texas everyone is counting down the days until the sun is shining and everyone is super tan.

Typically I don’t go on Spring Break, I usually just stay at home and work, but this year an opportunity came up that I couldn’t help but ask my parents. Due to my lack of being able to ask my parents in a normal way I made a PowerPoint. You can ask my dad this PowerPoint was very formal even at the end saying thank you for your time and consideration.

Jamaica!

I didn’t really think the PowerPoint was going to work considering I was asking to go to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, but low and behold the Spring Break Gods looked down upon me and blessed me because my parents are letting me go! I get to go on a 5 day cruise to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands! I’m so excited.

Cruise!!

The moral of this story is that PowerPoint presentations can actually really work so maybe everyone should just ask in PowerPoint. My dad’s response to this: ” I hope you are spending this much time on your school work as you are on your PowerPoints.” No worries Dad!

Spring Break Meltdown

Today was the first day back from Spring Break, and I think I can speak for everyone that we all still feel like we are on break. In Indy, the weather is so nice right now. Not to call out my friend Lindsay but she went back home to California, and we had better weather than Cali!

Right now the weather here is near the 80′s and is expected to be like this until Friday. On Friday it is expected to be in the 60′s , which is still crazy for Indy this time of year. Going to class and focusing has been so hard today. Since I have a break from 1-5 in the afternoon I decided to sit outside on the mall. When weather is this great I absolutely love campus. You see kids laying out on the lawn, boys playing campus golf, and so many people just out having fun.

The mall on such a pretty day!

The only unfortunate thing about this weather is because it is so nice, and because everyone wants to go do homework outside there are some weird tan lines going on. Currently, I have a tan line from my shirt and where I sat my computer on my legs. This will be extremely attractive later. Just a heads up to anyone planning on touring Butler, if you plan to tour this month do it this week or next week! The weather is so gorgeous.
