On Friday night, my faculty in residence took about 25 people from our wing in our residence hall to see the Nutcracker for free! She had snacks and food in her apartment before the performance and then I walked over with my residents to see the ballet. It was such a great performance and it was nice recognizing people I knew in the ballet.
Yesterday, as I was minding my business in my room, I got a knock at my door from some of my residents bearing gifts for me! It was so nice since I wasn’t expecting it! Aly gave me a Santa Claus sticky and wrote me a nice letter while Tammy got me a scarf and bear from Starbucks. I’m glad they thought of me enough to get me a gift!
Posing with my gifts!
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!
So there are a lot of events coming soon this semester and I thought I’d share some of the ones I am looking forward to.
The Fray are coming to Clowes next Friday. I unfortunately did not get tickets but they were only $15! I regret not getting any on time. I’m sure they’ll put on a great show.
I am also pretty excited to go see Paranormal Activity 3. I am usually terrified of scary movies but for some reason, after watching the trailer, I want to see it! It comes out in October so I have a while to make my final decision!
Here’s the trailer for the movie:
The thing I am most excited about is going to see the Nutcracker by the Butler Ballet. It’s a big event every winter and last year I did not get to go! But this year, I am determined to make it to at least ONE showing.
I am so pretty stoked for the season premiere of Modern Family this month as well. It is one of my favorite shows and is pretty hilarious. I’m curious what changes are going to be in store this season!
This is a funny clip from last year:
