I am almost positive that last night I was acting like a child. I was in awe the entire time. You may be thinking what was I in awe of? Was it Butler basketball? No. Blue 2? Awe inspiring, but No. No it is not either of those things. Instead, I was in awe of the NUTCRACKER. Last night was opening night and it was so awesome. One of our bloggers, Olivia, has been writing about it lately, too! She also has showtimes and dates on her blog!
Even though I live only 25 minutes away from Butler I had never gone to the Nutcracker here. Although, I am glad that I waited. I don’t think when I was younger I would have appreciated it as much. I was in awe of how awesome the dancers were. My sister in law is a ballerina and actually went to Butler for a couple years, and she always told me how awesome Nutcracker was, but I had no idea. Everything was great. The costumes, the dancing, the backdrops, and the music were fantastic.
If you have the time to go I definitely suggest it. Bring friends too! Eight other girls on my floor and myself went together and it was a lot of fun!
On a more serious note, the other night while IU was playing North Carolina State they honored the late NC State coach Jimmy V. I watched his speech given 8 weeks before he passed to cancer. It is something that is truly inspirational and continues to show me that living life in the moment is so important. It may be a long video but it is definitely worth it.
