Hey there! My name is Brooke, and I am a first-time freshman here at Fontbonne. My journey to Fontbonne was quite an exciting one…
In the middle of my junior year (a mere nine months ago), I realized I had reached my full potential on the high school level, and I was ready for my next chapter. Since I had all the credits required to graduate, I received my diploma a year early. While Mizzou had captured my heart many years before I started the Perfect College search, Fontbonne’s Speech and Language Pathology program swept me off my feet. The choice seemed simple: Fontbonne was where I needed to be.
Coming from a small, agriculture-based community, I was starving for the taste of the city. When I found out Fontbonne was a commuter campus, I was SO, so excited to start looking for an apartment in the city. After tour, after tour, after tour, I finally found a charming apartment to call home. I moved into my apartment in July, a month before school started, because I was eager to soak up the St. Louis culture. And in those 31 scorching days of July, I embraced everything St. Louis had to offer me.
Now we know how I came to be a Griffin, but I haven’t shared how I became a blogger. Over the summer, I became obsessed with anonymous blogging. I stayed up all night reading the heart-wrenching stories of people who didn’t want to reveal their true identity, thinking about how I could start my own blog. Even though I haven’t developed an online persona (yet), like the blogs I became addicted to, when I received the email on becoming a Fontbonne Blogger, I knew I had to join.
Before I go, I want to make some promises:
1. I promise to write every week.
2. I promise to be honest.
It’s also important for you to know that I’m a hardcore perfectionist and my biggest critic. I can’t promise that you will enjoy my posts as much as I enjoy writing them, but I CAN promise to try.
Stay tuned; I have lots to share.
