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.

Looking Back

Exactly one year ago, I wrote my introductory post for this new blog. I’ve been a blogger since the beginning of my sophomore year, but last year we switched to this new Office of Admission webpage. Truth be told, I think the new version is far superior to the old.

I had to navigate the old go.butler.edu site when I was deciding on colleges as a high school senior, and I remember having a lot of trouble. College websites are the worst. Honestly, you need a PhD to figure out where everything is. But the new admissions site marks a huge improvement, and if you haven’t done so, you should definitely explore the other areas of the www.butler.edu/admission hub! I think the section on residence halls are particularly useful — everything is nice, concise, and in one place.

But back to the past. One year ago, I wrote my new introduction for the new webpage. Today, I again have exciting blog-related news… While searching for the composer of music used in a Midwinter Dance Festival piece I was in as a sophomore, I found my long-lost blog posts!

They are somehow archived as notes in the Butler Class of 2014 Facebook page. How did they get there? Why did half the pictures import and the rest vanish? Why couldn’t I find these before? I don’t know and I don’t care! I’m just happy I found them. I don’t think it’s necessary to repost ALL the old blogs. (This means, “I didn’t realize exactly how many book reviews I posted last summer.”) However, I explain some dance major classes and so on in much more detail, and I hope to get these back to you sometime soon.

In the meantime, I’m going to dance around because it’s my birthday and my roommate gave me a robin’s egg blue tea kettle, and I have pretzels, and my boyfriend baked the most delicious cake.

A different day, a different dessert. Grandma, it was delicious!

Explanations and introductions

You might have noticed our snazzy new interface. You might also have noticed all our old posts are gone. Never fear–they shall return again!

However, this process might be a while, so please bear with us while we rearrange things. It’s like spring cleaning: The house has to get a lot messier before it looks nice again.

For those of you who have no idea who I am, my name’s Olivia. I’m currently a junior at Butler University. I’m majoring in Dance Performance and English Literature (though this secondary major might turn into a minor). I love to dance, read, talk, and knit. It’s my birthday today, so I’m going to sign off and eat cake or something.

Two decades! I can’t believe it.
