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.

Snapshot: Still sleeping

Sleeping Beauty! It happened my last full weekend at Butler! I enjoyed myself immensely! Exclamation points!! My parents came to see it–and my grandparents and my boyfriend’s family and an aunt-uncle pair. I’ve never had so many people in the audience, and I am so thankful to all who went out of their way to attend the performances.

For the Honors Ceremony after the Saturday night show, my family all wore white. This was unintentional, but made for a funny picture. White and cream, white and khaki, white and grey. With my heeled shoes, we all became exactly the same height as well.

The Honors Ceremony’s timing is less than perfect: It’s after the night show, which means it starts well after 10 pm. We were finished just before midnight, but it was past pumpkin hour by the time I got back to my dorm room.

The event honors students in the dance department for achievements in performance, work ethic, leadership, spirit, and academic work throughout the year. There are a variety of awards, including many moments of recognizing the graduating class.

There are also little ham sandwiches there, with fresh fruit. I love strawberries.

    I loved your costumes for Sleeping Beauty! It sounds like it was an extremely full week for you. I’m glad you got a break, even if it was a short one.
