This past Saturday I went to a Cardinals game with two of my good friends. The athletic office had tickets on sale for $30.
We took the metro to Busch stadium and first went to Ballpark Village for some drinks, and then went to our seats. It was a pretty good game! There was a lot of action and good plays, from both teams. We won this game and the series against the Rockies! I was worried about the weather since it was a night game, and that it would be super cold. It wasn’t that bad.
After the game we went out, danced, and met a few interesting people. Overall it was a good night.

This is my last semester of my undergrad!
Nerves are kicking in.
I have mixed feelings about this, I am scared but also really excited. I am so much closer to the real world; it’s intimidating. That’s not going to stop me from enjoying my last semester at Fontbonne though. I have lots of plans this semester with multiple organizations and in my personal life.
Right now, I am taking my senior seminar class for advertising. It’s the real deal. To me, it’s a test to see if this is really what I should be doing with my life. So far, I think it is and will be forever.
Plans after FBU:
- Move out of my house in Chicago
- Go to Denver
- Take a year or so off of school to pay back Fontbonne and get a car.
- Go to Grad school
- Finally MOVE TO LA
Its going to be tough but totally worth it. Especially if I have family and friends supporting me!
Yes, this year my family and I started the 4th all decked out in red, white and blue in Lambert airport. At 4 a.m., I was going through security to get on a plane to go to Mexico. Now, it wasn’t just a normal family vacation. My cousin was getting married. It was a week-long family vacation.
The resort we stayed at was all-inclusive. So, we had all the food and… alcohol we wanted. My family took full advantage of that. I had a lot of first experiences while I was there. I went Kayaking, which I was super nervous about at first. I’m glad I did it though, it was so much fun! I highly recommend it! I saw MJ for the first time. Not really, it was a Micheal Jackson impersonator. I had some Salmon and Lobster. I found out that I love salmon, and hate lobster. It was also my first time swimming in an ocean…with sting rays! No, it wasn’t an excursion. At first I was freaked out but I got use to them. Most importantly this was my first time seeing my cousin getting married and it was beautiful. I am so happy for him and his new wife.
Between all the shenanigans I made some new friends! Iguanas roamed around the resort. I saw at least 10 a day. Possibly could be the same ones but it is still a lot. We had a waiter throughout the whole week named Lorenzo and he was the sweetest. He went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. He said he only makes $4 a day, so we made sure to tip him well because he deserves it, while he is trying to look for work in America. Within a year he will be able too, and I hope the best for him!
