Working at Forever 21 for three years has definitely affected my life in many ways. While I met some amazing and also very interesting people there I also learned that saving your paycheck is more important than spending money on clothes and rings. Although sometimes you just can’t help but by things.
Every one in while Forever 21 will have these insane sales where everything is an additional 50% off of clearance item, which is ridiculous because items such as rings are then only 50 cents. Do you really think I would pass that up? This whole sale is what started my ring obsession. It doesn’t help that most rings there at only $2.80 anyway, but the on sale it just makes everything ten times worse.
All the rings I currently own!
As you can see from the picture above it might be getting a little crazy, but trust me it cannot just be any ring that can make it into my collection. I am extremely picky, but I will still probably be adding many more to this. The sad thing is that I know when one is missing… Happy ring shopping!
A lot of people I know have declared their major. Their advising appointments go more along the lines of, “You need this for your major, and well you don’t have time for that core credit so you will have to take that later.” My advising appointments go more like this, “So what are you interested in now? Oh, it looks like next semester you will be done with all your core.”
Maybe I am getting a bit ahead of myself. Let me explain what I mean by Core. Butler University has a core curriculum. Being a liberal arts school we are considered to be more well rounded by taking all different sorts of classes even if they do not relate to our major. I’ll try and give a brief description of the core, but there is a lot involved with it! The main aspects of the core are:
- Physical Well Being
- Natural World
- Perspectives in the Creative Arts
- Text & Ideas
- The Social World
- Analytical Reasoning
Those are the main six, there is also FYS (Freshmen Year Seminar), which you must take as a freshman, and then also Global & Historical Studies (GHS) that you must take as a sophomore. The core may seem annoying to some, but I love it because they are probably classes I would have never taken had I gone to a bigger university. Currently how I am covering my core is taking Sex Gender & Sexuality in Japan (Social World Credit), Religions of the World (Text & Ideas Credit), and Helen of Troy (FYS).
The book for my FYS!
Next semester I plan to take Codes & Secret Messages (Analytical Reasoning Credit), Intro to Ballet (Physical Well Being Credit), and Intro to Visual Arts (Perspective in the Creative Arts Credit). I am so excited! I am still trying to figure out my major, but with all these core it’s helping me see things that I thought I may not be interested in.
Also, everyone keeps posting this video everywhere on Facebook, now I know why…
