This year I’m excited to be a part of a new organization on campus. Omicron Delta Kappa, or ODK, is a national leadership honor society that is being established at Fontbonne. Other circles are installed in universities all over the U.S., so it’s a very big deal for us. I’m a member of the chartering committee [...]

A Whirlwind Two Weeks

by Conner October 7, 2013

It’s official. I’ve reached a whole new level of “tired”. The past two weeks have just been moving on from one thing to another. That little thing called homework usually gets completed at two o’clock in the morning. I’m not complaining. I’m loving every minute of being busy and involved, but can’t a girl get [...]

It’s that time of year again. St. Louis Fashion Week is upon us! The kick-off party was last week, but the first official fashion show took place this evening. Due to school and other wonderful things that keep me busy I could not attend, but I’ll be helping backstage at all three events this weekend. [...]

New School Year, New Beginnings

by Conner September 23, 2013

However difficult it is for me to say, I have begun my Junior year of college. The fact that half my time here at Fontbonne is already gone is something I don’t enjoy thinking about, but with this Junior year comes many opportunities. I’m ready for a new year, a new start. I hope to [...]

Sundays of Pancakes and Hiking

by Conner August 1, 2013

The days of summer are ticking by one by one, with some surprisingly cool temperatures these past few days. This past Sunday, I did the normal routine of making pancakes, waffles, or some sort of breakfast meal (from scratch, I might add) for my family. During breakfast, we were discussing what we could do that [...]

Concert Weekend

by Conner July 26, 2013

The craziness of summer was temporarily ceased this weekend while I had some fun. I’m a fan of Gavin Degraw, so I took the opportunity to buy tickets to his concert a few months ago. He’s currently touring with Train on their summer tour. My Gavin-loving friend and I chose the closest city to where [...]

Back to School, if Only for a Day

by Conner July 22, 2013

To top off what feels like the craziest two weeks I think I’ve ever had in one summer, I had a long list of things to do today. One of those items meant coming back to Fontbonne for the day. It was nice to be back, but a little scary thinking that I’ll be back [...]

Best Friend’s Back! (and other everyday occurrences)

by Conner July 16, 2013

Wow, what a long and crazy week it has been. Other than the usual babysitting, baseball games, and tasks that fill my life daily, this last week has held some different happenings. In the last week, I have decided to get my heart pumping again and stray from yoga and standard dance technique and added [...]

Windshield Time

by Conner July 8, 2013

July 4th. One usually thinks fireworks, swimming, barbeques, and other festive things that occur outdoors. My holiday weekend was anything but the usual. I spent a long weekend in Gainesville, Florida. However, looking back, I think I spent more time in the car than I actually did in Florida. My sister is planning to go [...]

Small Town Kitty

by Conner July 2, 2013

I am a huge animal lover, and a few days ago I discovered a little ray of sunshine in the backyard of the house I nanny at. A kitten was roaming about the backyard, and with a little coaxing it came right up to me. The kids that I watch and I played with the [...]
