Forest Park

by Britney on June 17, 2014

in In Saint Louis

If you are ever looking for somewhere to go during the summer on a nice day. I would recommend Forest Park. Forest Park is located around the corner from Fontbonne, just past Skinker Blvd. There’s the Zoo, Art Museum, History Museum and so much more. The best thing about it is that everything is free! It is a great place to hang out with the family, a group of friends, or go as a couple. You can also get in shape by using Forest Park’s track. You can run, jog, or even bike ride. If you are ever looking for somewhere to take the family or have a nice day out, this is surely the place to go! A trip to Forest Park can turn your boring day upside down!

I did not even realize that I ended my first year of college with nothing less than a B. This is great. I realize that all my hard work paid off. All the nights that I spent in the dorm studying instead of going out to go party has paid off. Never underestimate yourself and always strive to be better. Staying focused on your grades and not getting distracted can get you a long way. Even though I did have fun every now and then, I was always focused on my school work. It is always good to have a connection with the professors. They are there to teach you and you are there to learn. The greater your relationship is with the professor, the easier and more comfortable it will be for you to ask questions and get more understanding about the school work. I am so proud of myself for passing my first year of college with a BANG!!!! If you put your mind to it you can achieve anything!

Blessing: I got a car

by Britney on June 13, 2014

in Faith

I am so happy that this summer I got blessed with a car. It has been so hard not having one and the fact that I finally have one is great. No more asking for rides to places, no more waiting on people to come and get me, no more going only where the driver wants to go. I can finally go where I want to go and do what I want to do. I am so happy to be able to be mobile and finally free. My wait has not been in vain. I got my first car for only $100 dollars! You can’t tell me that God is not good! He truly has blessed me this summer.

A Good Way to Stay Fit

by Britney on June 6, 2014

in Athletics

If you want to stay fit, playing sports is a good way to do it. It can also create many opportunities for you. My brother attends SLU high school and is on the track team. This has created many opportunities for him, such as going out of town, creating new friends, and college offers. Not to mention it also helps him to stay in shape. Doing sports and having good grades can get you a full scholarship. Hard work and dedication pays off.
