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.

Power + Outage = Chicago

A scheduled power outage for maintenance this weekend on Butler campus meant stuff stopped happening from Friday to Monday. This meant I could jet off to Chicago to spend a few days with my boyfriend and his family.

(“Jet off” is another term for “take the Megabus, which will come an hour late and have you praying several times during the highway portion of the trip.”)

It was wonderful. There was the hospitality of my boyfriend’s family (could not say enough). There was Chicago (Taste, Millennium Park, Chinatown, Navy Pier). There was piano playing, my first dim sum experience, a movie, a train, a far too sugary cinnamon sugar pretzel, siopao, surprisingly delicious pancit canton, fruit salad with condensed milk and coconut, this somehow turned into a list of the food I ate while I was there….

If I had to spend July 4th away from my home in Richmond, I think got the best possible of scenarios.

Taste of Chicago

My first dim sum experience: delicious and entertaining

Lunch with wonderful people

NOTE: power + outage = chicago

a = 1, g = 2, p = 3, r = 4, t = 5, u = 6, w = 7, c = 8, h = 9, i = 10, e = 20

OR

char letter[] = {‘a’, ‘g’, ‘p’, ‘r’, ‘t’, ‘u’, ‘w’, ‘c’, ‘h’, ‘i’, ‘e’};

for(int x = 0; x < 10; x++){

cout << letter[x] << ” = ” << x + 1;

cout << “, “;

if(x = 9) cout << letter[10] << ” = 20″;

}

ETCETERA…

    I didn’t realize taste was going on. It sounds like so much fun! Glad you were able to get away from campus and enjoy yourself in Chicago.
