About Me:

My name is Olivia and I am a senior at Butler University. I spend most of my time in Lilly Hall as a BFA Dance Performance major. When not in rehearsal or ballet class, I write papers for my English Literature second major. In my super-abundant, never-lacking, this-is-highly-sarcastic spare time, I attempt to cook in my apartment kitchen, watch Youtube videos of ballet, knit sweaters that never seem to come to an end, and read books both silly and serious. If I could take any class at Butler just for kicks, I'd go for DiffyQ.

In which the smackdown disintegrates

What’s the score between Olivia and physics? It’s hard to say, since the smackdown has disintegrated into madness.

Pro-Olivia: The professor posted a list of early term grades via student ID number, and he placed them in descending order. Guess who was at the top of the class? That’s right–the Dance BFA/English lit major!

Pro-physics: The midterm. Two questions. Three sections each. Ninety minutes. (Or seventy-five, in my case, since I had a ballet class that began at 12:20.) All was well and good until the last section of the last problem. I think I finally ended up with a system of six equations with six different variables. I wrote, “Solve the system found at the bottom of the extra work page. Did not have time to execute.” Darn vectors pointing every which way!

Yeah. Definitely not at the top of the class anymore.
