It’s A Wrap!

by DeMarcus on August 8, 2016

in College Life

The summer has officially come to an end. My Griffin 101 duties have ended as well as my status as a summer RA. This summer has truly been an adventure. Hanging out with with friends, going to Delaware, and finally piecing together a podcast that I’ve been working on for over a year. To see the hard work pay off is incredible; especially when you’re working with friends that support your ideas and goals even when they seem hazy at first. My Griffin 101 Team has showed me that confidence is key in any situation, Residence Life has taught me how to be more accommodating for other people and that everything doesn’t go as planned. Lastly, I’ve learned from my “roommates” that it’s okay to treat yourself to a night out on the town every once in a while…or every other weekend. All in all the summer sixteen was a success and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. Now, I am preparing for my senior year and all it has to offer.

See you all in a week!

In the future…

by Patricia on August 8, 2016

in Extracurricular

I’m not sure it will happen this year, but I would like to go to Europe sometime. I have never been out of the country, the last time I was on an airplane was when I was 3. I would love to go to Italy, particularly Venice. It has water around the entire city and you get around in canoes. I would love to try gelato. I would love to go to Paris as well, I would love to go shopping and go to the Eiffel Tower. I studied French for 4 years in high school. I would also like to go to a bakery there! I would really like to go to Greece and see the white buildings and royal blue water. Lastly, I would like to go to London. I love Harry Potter and would like to pretend that I’m going to Hogwarts.

I would also like to go to Hawaii, Mexico, or any other place in South America! I have seen lots of pictures on Facebook and it looks like lots of fun. I love to surf on the beach and know that Hawaii is known for its gigantic waves. In the meantime, there are places in the U.S that I have not visited yet. I would love to go to California, New York, and New Orleans. Ever since I watched the Princess and the Frog I wanted to go to New Orleans. Last year I attempted to visit the White House during the Pro-Life trip. Because the trip got cancelled due to weather conditions, I was unsuccessful. But I’ll try again this year.

I am excited to return to Fontbonne. I can’t wait for all the events that are planned for this year. FAB decided to have less events in the future so that they can be bigger. The sibz weekend is very different and it is oriented towards the whole family instead of just siblings. We will also have some movie nights where we have the entire theatre reserved just for us. We also have the annual fall festival and dueling pianos. My course schedule will be different this year. Unfortunately I have class all 5 days a week, however, I am doing an internship with lifework systems. I can do all of the work online. I also was hired for another job. I am going to be a FLIT member and working with Vinny.

However, I am not quite ready to return yet, I still have fun things to do this summer. I want to see the new Ice Age movie and Bad Moms. A friend and I plan on going to Grant’s farm and hopefully Incredible Pizza. It is also my parents’ 25th anniversary. I plan on making them a sand castle cake made of edible sand, teddy grahams, and waffle cones. I will use vanilla wafers and candy pearls to make oysters.

Holiday World

by Patricia on August 2, 2016

in Extracurricular

Last week I went to Holiday world in Santa Clause, Indiana. It is a theme park that incorporates Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and July 4th. It also has a huge water park; I went there first. Unfortunately it rained and we had to eat standing under an eating area. After it cleared, we went on the mammoth, which is a roller coaster water slide. We went to another water coaster called the Wildebeest. After spending most of the day at the water park, we went on the Voyage, which is the biggest roller coaster they have. It was located in the Thanksgiving area. We visited the Halloween area and rode the Raven and the Legend. For dinner, we went to a restaurant located in the Christmas area. We ate pizza under the mistletoe while listening to Christmas music. I also visited the gift shop and bought mistletoe and even went to Mrs. Clause’s Bakery. For dessert, we went to the July 4th area and got blue ice cream at a stand named Utterly Blue Ice Cream.

The reason I enjoy this place better than Six Flags is because it is clean, has a bigger waterpark, and better prices. You get free soda and sunscreen. The waterpark stays open until 7 as opposed to 6 and there is no useless safety break every 40 min. I just wish it was closer!

And applying for internships is one of the requirements. Internships are a sure-fire way to gain experience and knowledge without all the pressure of a full-time job (although […]

My Inspiration

by Patricia July 18, 2016

A public figure I admire is Stacy London. She hosted the TV show “What Not to Wear” and currently hosts another show called “Love, Lust or Run.” I admire her for many reasons. My career is similar to hers; I work at Nordstrom and help people find items and give them advice. We also share […]

4th of July

by Patricia July 15, 2016

This 4th of July was lots of fun! On Friday we visited our cousin in Wisconsin. We went to her house and had a BBQ. She has a 2-year-old son that was very outgoing. The hotel was nice too. It had a big pool and French toast and cinnamon rolls for breakfast. The next day […]

Summer Get-A-Ways

by DeMarcus July 5, 2016

While we haven’t quite reached the summer solstice just yet, some friends from Room 316 and I have started to plan for next summer. We were watching “Gossip Girl” season 2 when Blair was returning back home to the Hamptons with her new boyfriend, while Chuck Bass was waiting for her with a bouquet of […]

Griffin 101

by DeMarcus June 27, 2016

Griffin 101 has been amazing so far! The team members that I am working with are unique in their own way but most importantly, we work well with one another. So far, each Griffin 101 Leader has exceeded my expectations, and I know that this program will be in good hands after I graduate Fontbonne […]
