It’s finally the holidays! That means cinnamon scented candles, gift shopping, glitter and lights everywhere! One of my favorite things about this time of year is family traditions! Here is a list of some of my favorite traditions.
- Staying up late Christmas Eve and watching movie marathons such as the Harry Potter series, Gone With the Wind, and Lord of the Rings
- Helping my mom bake dozens of cookies!
- Driving around neighborhoods to look at the Christmas lights.
- Decorating the tree with all the past childhood ornaments
- My newest tradition is going to the zoo and looking at all the lights and seeing the penguins!
Happy Holidays! What are some of your favorite traditions around the holidays?
Overall, I think that this semester went pretty well. I am doing well in all my classes. I was very busy this semester with my internship and involvement on campus. I had lots of meetings to go and lots of planning. I met new people on the Metanioa retreat and in my classes. Lots of people I used to hang out with graduated last year, and I feel like I got a fresh start this year. Next semester is going to be different because all of my classes are at night. I am excited for Snowcoming, I help with it every year.
For thanksgiving, we fried a turkey! My parents bought a giant deep fryer and we fried all kinds of things like chicken wings, fries, shrimp, and pizza rolls. Not all in the same day of course. My parents always make 2 different kinds of stuffing. My mom’s is a French recipe that my grandma used to make and my dad’s is a recipe that his aunt used to make. I don’t like stuffing but my brother says that mom’s stuffing is good and dad’s stuffing is gross. Anyway, on black Friday I had planned to get some homework done. WRONG! I went shopping with my mom all day. I was glad that I did it. I bought her earrings from Francesca’s. They are blue medallions. I bought some things for myself as well. My mom had started Christmas shopping for our family, so I wasn’t allowed to walk around with her.
Hi everyone! This is our last time together for the fall semester of 2016; can you believe it? This has got to be the fastest semester that I have ever had to experience. I could have swore that just yesterday was Welcome Week back in August! But I hope everyone enjoyed their fall semester! I know that mine was most definitely crazy, but also fantastic at the same time!
My semester I felt was pretty great because of my new job, meeting new people, and as always making new memories with the people that I love. My new job only enhanced to the great semester because even though a job is a job, mine was a large stress reliever. I work at the After Care program at Central Christian School, so I am lucky enough to work with some pretty great kids 3-4 days a week! I am so grateful to have a job that I actually enjoy.
Meeting new people is also always a plus, and this year I met so many new people that I consider great friends. This was my first semester as a WING leader for orientation, and I met multiple new faces that I love seeing everyday! (Shoutout to my Blue Whales for being such a great first team! Love all you guys 💙🐳) I just enjoy getting to know people, even those I knew last year, but got closer to this semester because our times just clicked.
Making new memories with people I love is possibly the best because we now have new things to look back and reminisce on. Coming to Fontbonne required me to make a whole new group of friends because not a lot of people from my high school came here. So all of my new friends that I have made in my year and a half at Fontbonne, I thank you for being my friend because you have enhanced my time at Fontbonne and are one of the MANY reasons I keep coming back after each semester.
Thank you everyone for reading my blogs this semester, and I hope you all finish strongly! We’ve only got a week and a half left!
peace out ✌️
