So as you might have read in my previous blog, I had the second day of my Get Real Weekend this past Saturday….and it was AMAZING. Even though I didn’t go up on the high ropes course, I still learned a lot about myself and everyone else, and there were plenty of other fun things during the day too. So here is a video of the high ropes part of the day with a little help from my friend Josh….enjoy!

Once again, I have lost track of time. This seems to be a common theme of mine. The past week has been pretty intense with classes, and my first few tests, and most importantly, the return of all of my favorite primetime shows! The Office and Greys Anatomy started on Thursday, and I’m currently watching Brothers and Sisters, but I missed the beginning of Desperate Housewives, so don’t tell me about what happened until I get the chance to see it online tomorrow!
This weekend I was busy with things for my Freshman Business Experience class… on Friday we went to a Forum with recent Butler grads, and they told us about what they do now, about their internships, and about their experiences here at Butler. That was really cool, especially to hear what advice they had for us…for instance, what they wished that they had done while they were here and things of that sort. Then on Saturday we finished our Get Real Weekend that we started two weeks ago, so we got to go out to the high and low ropes courses all day. It was an awesome day…and a great opportunity for our groups to form a bond and learn more about each other. My personal favorite activity was the “Mine Field” where we had to guide a blindfolded person through a “Mine Field” (which was an area with a bunch of random toys scattered everywhere….my favorite was a stuffed penguin, closely followed by the rubber pig) it was challenging, yet still fun because watching a blindfolded person tiptoe and shuffle through a mass of toys is always pretty funny. Then later that day we went on the high ropes course, which I wasn’t looking forward to because I am a HUGE wimp when it comes to heights, and after standing there with the harness and the helmet on for like thirty minutes, I decided that it just wasn’t going to happen. I had tried something similar to it before, and it wasn’t the best experience…..mainly because of how much of a wimp I am. But, all in all, it was an awesome day….and we learned so much. I have a video of the high ropes course that my friend Josh helped me out with (since I was a wimp) that will be up sometime….:) I might fill you in on more things that we did this weekend sometime….because there were so many activities that we did that I loved…it was basically a fun-filled day/weekend!
So this past week I realized that I am back to my usual “too-busy” self. I interviewed for Alpha Kappa Psi (a business fraternity), and I am now a pledge, which is really exciting!! But now that adds yet another activity to my list. I love it being that way though. Having downtime makes me nervous….so I just make sure that I don’t have any. lol…..for instance, on Wednesday night I didn’t have any meetings or anything, and I felt a massive cold/sinus thing coming on so I didn’t think I should go to the HRC, so I sat in my room and watched TV for the first time all year. It was crazy. So I pulled out a book and did some homework while I was watching TV. That made me feel a little bit better….lol.
Last night my boyfriend Scott came to visit, and we went with some of my friends to the Old Spaghetti Factory….which I highly recommend. It was pretty delicious. Except that they gave me a chinese food box to put my leftovers in?? I don’t understand what that was all about. I kept thinking that the waiter would bring out the real box….but he didnt….so I just put my lasanga in that. haha….
Well thats all I’ve got for now….now it’s back to homework….whoohoo! Hopefully this week won’t go as fast as this past one did………..
