Why I Can’t Study At StarBucks

On campus Starbucks is usually a place where lots of people meet up for group projects, to work on any homework they may have, or just to hang out during a break between classes. Unfortunately I can’t do that. For that matter any social area on campus does not work for me to focus on school work.

Inside the Starbucks at Butler

A lot of my friends say I know everyone on campus, which is clearly an over exaggeration, but I do know quite a few people and I am not going to lie every time I see someone I know I always want to say hi. That’s how most of campus is. You usually see someone you know walking to class and if you don’t you almost wonder if anyone is going to class.

Being a small campus and knowing a lot of people, Starbucks never works for me because every time someone walks in the door I feel like I need to see if it is someone I know,which means I am doing this every 2 seconds. Starbucks is not only a place to do all the things I said earlier in the blog, but it’s also a way to get to our dining courts, which means people are going through there all the time.

I guess I should mention it’s not just Starbucks I can’t study in, but on warm days everyone goes out on the mall. I can’t do that either. Basically any place where I could see people that I usually don’t see on a regular basis I cannot study, which is why you will most likely find me stashed away in my sorority dining room or in my room with headphones on.

The mall on campus!

So I guess being social is now becoming a problem…

 

Let The Finals Begin

I’m getting all too familiar with the view at Irwin. Second floor is my normal spot, you can usually find me in the stacks somewhere usually with my friend Kelsey. Currently, I am studying for my Religions of the World final that I have tomorrow at one.

I already got my Starbucks fix, which I needed because I already took a nap at 630 – 7 in Irwin. Speaking of Starbucks if you didn’t know they have a secret menu! It’s awesome. Right now I am drinking a Red mocha, which is white chocolate/chocolate mocha and two shots of raspberry. Click the link to see the awesome secret menu!

Shockingly I am not too stressed about finals week. I am slightly worried, but all this studying has me pumped. I feel pretty confident so hopefully I am not jinxing myself. Plus Butler has been awesome with their stress less week, which they had really awesome things. They had dogs come in, doodle night at A Town and so many other things.

Hopefully all this fun/stress free life stays with me through finals week! Good luck everyone! Just to keep you from not going crazy, check out what Butler frat, Phi Delt, did to their house! So awesome!

Welcome Back Fall.

In true Indiana fashion, the weather changed and super fast. Why does everyone wonder why we all get sick? Probably because Indiana likes to freak out and change weather all the time, but I can’t complain. Fall is my favorite season, and for all you Summer lovers out there let me explain why Fall is so awesome.

1. Sweatshirts/Uggs
Who doesn’t love sweatshirts?! They are so comfy and soft. You don’t have to worry about what you are wearing under them because you most likely won’t take it off, but if you do get too hot then you can always take it off! I especially love my Phillies sweatshirt, thanks to my friend Hank I started getting interested in the Phillies and now I am debating whether to buy another sweatshirt. Buying a new sweatshirt might be a problem because I am really thinking about buying new Uggs. You may think Uggs are ugly, but they are so comfy. They can go with anything and feel so soft and warm. Don’t judge the uggs by the outside it’s what inside that matters :)

I love this sweatshirt!

2. Apple Cider/Chai = Chaider or any Fall drink Starbucks offers.
My friend, Natasha, has seriously got me hooked on Chaider, I don’t even know if that’s how you spell it correctly, but it is Apple Cider and Chai Tea mixed together! It’s so good! Not only that but since Fall is back that means Pumpkin Spice Lattes are here. Nothing is better than having a warm drink in cold weather. Plus who doesn’t love Apple Cider?! So awesome.

3. Football
I am a huge fan of football. Being that I am from Indianapolis, I love the Colts. I can’t wait until September 11th when the season starts. I’ve been a little worried with the whole Peyton situation, but nonetheless I am still pumped. Football in the fall is great. Tailgating and eating good off the grill food is so yummy. Plus when you go to games at Lucas Oil or any stadium for that matter there’s no better football experience than that.

4. Leaves Changing!
Here in Indiana we are known for our leaves having this crazy change in color. I can’t wait until leaves begin to change here at Butler. I heard it is so pretty through the Monon trail and just through out campus since we have so many trees! For any students though and anyone visiting Indiana, Brown County is a must. For the past couple years I have been going camping with my friends Lindsey and Sara to Happy Hollows in Brown County with their families. It’s so pretty there and I’m so mad we can’t do it this year because they go to Purdue and being that we both have the same homecoming as the high schooler’s Fall Break, we can’t go! :( I am going to miss it, so hopefully we get to go some other time!

Last year at Brown County! So Pretty!

5. Bonfires
They keep you warm, and you can make awesome food with bonfires. For example, Smores. Who doesn’t love smores?! They can be messy but the gooey awesomeness of smores is the best part. Until Fall is here I have to suffice with microwave smores or the smores cupcake from The Flying Cupcake. The cupcake is awesome, but I still want the actual thing! Plus with bonfires I love that smell! Right now is perfect bonfire weather.

Sorry about my Fall rant, I am just a little too excited.
