Kentucky Derby - Wishful Thinking

Tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby and I really wish I didn't have finals to study for so I could go! Good news: next year I won't have finals and I'm definitely going.  I don't know who I'm going with yet, but I will be there...with a giant hat.  I've been scouting some...

Well, this week is finals week, even though I've already had 4...3 left! Once those are over, it will be time to graduate. aaaaaaah

Welcome to the Greatest College Weekend in America.

According to Urban Dictionary, Little 500 is: 
"Known as the Greatest College Weekend, but it actually encompasses a much longer period than just one weekend. Takes place in the greatest college town in the world, Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. Starts earlier and earlier every year, until one day, it will be all of the Spring semester. Little 500 is a bike race that has gained a lot of notoriety around the world and is a much better spectacle than the Grand prix that takes place at rival purdue university."
This is my last Little 5 celebration as a student here and I can't wait!

Bloomington Handmade Market

A few weeks ago, when my sisters visited, I took them to the Bloomington Handmade Market.  I thought I was in heaven, but they seemed to love it just as much!  It was kind of crowded, but it was cool to see how many different artists there are in the area. One lady was selling necklace charms made from Scrabble pieces. She happened to be having a deal of "buy 2, get 1 free." Perfect for the three of us! So we all picked a charm out and she gave us the necklace part "free."  I also got a handmade flower pin which fer picked out. Overall it was really fun and I may try to sell my t-shirt necklaces there next year!

It's all better!

My computer has been sick since Sunday. I woke up and the screen was black! Today the Dell mechanic guy came to fix my computer and he was full of stories! Since he travels to people's homes to fix their computers for Dell, he gets sent all over Indiana and has seen many odd people. For example: he told me a story about cockroaches in computers...which I won't repeat on here because it's gross!

Anyways, this weekend will be super busy and next week is Little 500 then dead week, then finals, then graduation! aaaah time is flying and I don't like it!

fer visits btown

My sisters came this past saturday to watch me and my dad run in our races.  Afterwards, my dad and brother went home and I took my sisters around Bloomington.  They saw Campus Candy on Kirkwood and had to go haha. It's a super cute candy store and my sisters couldn't decide which candy to get, so they talked me into a $5 bag of candy. Our favorite was the candy teeth. They didn't taste the best, but they were fun.

ohhh Butler

My advanced financial accounting test on cash flow derivatives, fair value derivatives, options, interest rate swaps..etc...is over! Now it's smooth sailing until finals :)

Well Butler lost in the championship last night. Sad sad night. Such a young team with such a young (hot) coach did such an amazing job against Duke!!

Here's a peek into my first time at the Final Four:

Happy Easter :)

It is so much fun to have a little sister who still believes in Santa, tooth fairies, leprechauns, and Easter bunnies. My brother volunteered to be the Easter bunny this year and hid all of the plastic eggs around the house...well he got creative and taped some to the ceiling, taped them under counter tops, and some other unique places around the house.  My sister was pretty impressed. She said the Easter bunny really stepped it up this year hahaha...I love it. 

We died some easter eggs and then about an hour later made them into deviled eggs (a little family tradition).

Then we had a special Easter lunch and my family packed up and  split up. My brother and I went back to school while the rest of the family is heading up to see my grandpa who is in the hospital.  :( 

Well, the weather is beautiful, and I am off to go study so I can watch Butler v. Duke in the NCAA championship game tomorrow...more about the Final Four games later! 

p.s. my bracket has Butler v. Duke in the championship...I should have bet more than a $1 in the family pool!  I'd like to meet someone else who had Butler going that far :)
