This Ones For You Billy.

Many of my friends know that I am blogger for Butler admissions. I don’t really mention the fact I’m a blogger unless I get bored of sharing “I’m half Japanese” as my interesting fact. When I started writing blogs about my roommates Kristina and Rori some became jealous and felt like they should have a blog about them as well. Billy is the only one that got jealous, but really.

Anytime I am at Sigma Nu, one of the fraternities on Butler campus, Billy always ask me when he will be getting a blog about him. Finally I have decided that there is no better time than now, since we just got new pledge classes and maybe this will help the newest pledge class of Sigma Nu to get to know Billy.

Meet Billy.

Billy is probably one of the nicest guys you will meet. He’s a little weird, but in a good way. My roommate Rori just mentioned he has a rabbit nose? Basically it means that he can flare his nose and she thinks it looks like a rabbit. Anyway I usually go to Billy for new bands because he loves Indie bands. Some times I get irritated because he’s probably one of the very few people who know more random bands than I do.

Billy just being Billy.

On top of Billy’s taste of music he is intrigued by some of the same things as me, such as…. THE BUTLER SQUIRRELS. Billy also has interesting taste in cars. He drives a van that looks kind of sketchy, so if you are around campus and happen to see a van with blacked out windows, no worries it’s no one trying to tempt you with candy into their van, it’s just Billy being Billy. Last but not least Billy is a mastermind. He has once convinced girls that a painting in his room was selling at Target stores nation wide… Don’t ask.

Either way I hope this blog fulfills what Billy wanted, and hopefully you can feel like you know Billy now. Did I mention Billy is in love with Ms. B?

I Love Butler… Squirrels.

This is not a joke. Midway through conversations I will yell SQUIRREL. I don’t really have a obsession with squirrels, just Butler squirrels. Butler squirrels are not your average squirrel. Just like the students here, Butler squirrels are extremely happy. They will get extremely close to you, and you almost start to debate whether you should pet them or not. I would suggest you do not pet them.


This is a picture my friend Billy took of a Butler squirrel. They pose for us!


In all seriousness, I feel like the squirrels are so happy on our campus for the same reasons the students are. Our campus is so pretty whether it’s snowing or raining or sunny!

These are pictures a Butler student took yesterday after the snow we got, which is now gone.

The squirrels are always out and about. Sometimes they are playing, which is funny to watch. The other day when I was walking back from class there were two squirrels playing and one tried to jump on top of the other one and instead fell off the tree. I was laughing so hard.

Well now that I just compared Butler students to squirrels you probably all I think I am officially crazy. Just wait until you come to Butler for your first semester. You’ll probably write a blog about squirrels too.
