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.

Thanksgiving Checklist

Thanksgiving is next Thursday, and Butler students, much as we love to study and attend class, are counting down the days until sleep and family bonding commence. Inspired by Andre’s post, here is what I hope to do over Thanksgiving break:

  • See my family. I haven’t been home since August, and I did not spend much time there this summer either, due to BSI. I guess it’s training for the real world of jobs next year.
  • See my friends from home.
  • Play with my rabbits.
  • Play with my sisters.
  • Take dance classes — as possibly teach as well! My Teaching Analysis of Classical Ballet class should come in handy.

Belly bump with my sister?

Oh yeah, also:

  • Finish a paper on Shakespeare’s Othello.
  • Write a review of another Shakespearian play.
  • Write a dance critique of a performance I’ve seen — I think I’ll do mine on the Luna Negra program I saw a few weeks ago.
  • Reassemble my Irish Lit paper from its URC format to submit as my senior English essay.
  • Begin my research paper for Financial Fictions class on the metaphoric Fall in Frank Norris’ The Pit.
  • Arrange dance photos for my resume — YIKES.
  • Begin a paper for my Theory and Philosophy of Dance class: “What is dance?” I’m going to answer, “Derrida.”
  • Finish my knitting project?

Will all this happen? Probably not. Can I try? Meh… I’ll let you know.
