Almost There!

There are only three more days of classes left this semester and the feeling is bittersweet. I’m happy because this means I won’t have to do homework for a while but it also hit me that it means that I’m that much closer to graduating! I’m just hoping the rest of college doesn’t go by as fast!

I am looking forward to being able to go home. I might be going home this weekend to get a haircut and do laundry but I might just wait it out since I have a couple finals the following week.

Today I had one of my finals in Spanish. After we took our normal weekly quiz, we had to have a dialog with our professor in spanish for eight minutes. We did it in pairs which took the pressure off of each of us and it was actually enjoyable. We got to talk about ourselves and respond to random questions the professor had for us. So now I can officially say I am done with Spanish….. At least for this semester anyway.

Another big project I’m working on is a Public Service Announcement my group had to make for Media Literacy class. We have to inform viewers on a media literacy issue and my group chose product placement. Filming the video was really fun and I’ll be sure to post it on my blog once we’re done editing!

Until then, here’s a video of my personal favorite PSA. It’s probably because it makes me hungry!

Christmas Spirit

On Friday my unit went to go see the Nutcracker at Clowes and I really enjoyed it! I didn’t get the chance to see the Nutcracker last year so I was happy I got the chance to do so this year. It it put on by the Butler ballet every year and I hear they do a good job with it each time!

When it ended I was very disappointed because I wanted it go on on longer! I really enjoyed the dancing and seeing people I recognize, like fellow blogger Olivia. It was also fun to see people performing that I had no idea were dance majors, such as the girl who played Clara who also is really nice and makes my drinks in Starbucks.

Since they put it on each year, I cannot wait to see next year’s performance!

Here is a video with Butler ballet students participating in a flash mob for a promo for the show Glee in downtown Indy!
