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.

Dorm Room 3.2

My third dorm room at Butler, part two. Dorm Room 3.2. The tour continues.

In the corner next to the bed corner (confused? catch up) (you can just see the edge of my bedside table to the lower left in this picture) is the homework station. The chair, little rolling, two-drawer unit, and the desk all come with the room. I think this set of drawers is listed as a bedside table, but a lot of people put them under their desks. I have my printer on it and my clothes hamper behind it.

I feel incredibly studious this year, using a white board. I don’t normally do homework on it, but I write lists and things on it instead of using scraps of paper, which is what I did last year. This system works much better, unless I have Rubik’s Cube algorithms up there as I try to memorize them.

By the way. I can completely and totally solve the Rubik’s cube now. I am the champion.

To the right of the desk corner is an empty corner (hidden by the open closet door in the above picture) and the closet. The closets at the Village aren’t as large as Schwitzer or ResCo, but I still get everything in there. I got a wire rack to provide some shelves lower down, since I have to pull out my stool even to begin to reach the top shelf in the closet.

I found the best storage system: Bags go on a wire over-the-door hook thing on the outside of the closet door. Shoes go in the shoe organizers on the inside of the closet door. Tights and leotards go in the compartments of the hanging shoe organizer. This is a perfect system. I highly recommend all dancers replicate it. I save a lot of drawer space, and I can see all the leotards I have.

Thus ends this tour of my Apartment Village dorm room.
