Winter break is winding down, and I’m back to Butler, set to get myself organized for the audition season. Today I locked myself out of my apartment, fell off my bike, and tried to buy my textbooks only to realize I had no money with me… all before noon.
On the bright side, the sun shone strong today (haha, get it?) and I could play a quick game of badminton/toss with Boyfriend on the football field. Once we warmed up, we shed jackets and played in sweatshirts and short sleeves. It’s hard to believe it’s January.
In Richmond, my family still has holiday decorations, including this lovely wreath of my mother’s. There’s always a local race to see who can collect the fallen osage oranges before they are gone; you may see the fruits of my mother’s labors wired onto this wreath.
It’s weird for the weather to be so warm while I see holiday decorations like my mom’s wreath. I’m so happy I could play badminton outside before the freezing Indiana winter descends in full force, though I always worry a bit about climate change.
Still, Butler’s campus is so beautiful, it begs for warm weather; better temperatures bring students out onto the mall (the quad) in droves.
