About Me:

My name is Steph, and I am a senior Marketing major with a Communication Studies minor. Since this is my last year at Butler, my main goal is to enjoy every moment that I have left, while doing as much as humanly possible. I am a marketing analyst at the Butler Business Accelerator, a Speakers Lab tutor, and a Butler blogger (obviously). I also am an Alpha Phi, the President of the Butler University Student Foundation, a member of Alpha Kappa Psi (a professional business fraternity), and a member of the Butler American Marketing Association. In the small amount of free time that I do have, I love crafting, watching large amounts of television, and enjoying my favorite comfort foods, like sweet tea.

I am no longer a nomad…and it feels great!

As soon as the Indy 500 and my Princess activities were finished, my parents and I drove to Fort Wayne to move me into my apartment for the summer.  I am interning with Vera Bradley all summer long, and since it is located in Fort Wayne and I live on the other side of the state, I had to find a place to live and a roommate for a few months (luckily, Vera helped out).  Before race weekend I only had a day to pack up all of my stuff for the weekend and the summer, and my poor parents, sister, and future brother-in-law were nice enough to put everything in the car and drive it up.  Let me just say that when they opened the back of the vehicle, things fell out…and my Dad could never see out of the rear view mirror because there was so much in the car.  Not everything fit….but they brought up as much as humanly possible….which was still impressive!

I officially moved into my apartment on Memorial Day, and ever since I have been trying to get caught up on decorating, posting pictures, doing things for my internship, blogging, meeting the other interns, and sleeping.  Being a grown up really is exhausting….especially when you are trying to be social at the same time.  And unfortunately, there aren’t nap breaks in the middle of the day at work…so…I have been giving coffee a try for the first time ever (I’m like Olivia, tea is my thing usually).  It’s not so bad…when it is half creamer and sugar.

I would include photos of my new apartment….but I only have one.  So…this is the only proof that I have that I am not living out of my car any longer.  Don’t worry, the apartment is almost complete…and a photo tour will be coming soon!

Sitting out on our porch with our fun lights...it's so nice to be a grown up...
