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:

  1. Move out of my house in Chicago
  2. Go to Denver
  3. Take a year or so off of school to pay back Fontbonne and get a car.
  4. Go to Grad school
  5. Finally MOVE TO LA

Its going to be tough but totally worth it. Especially if I have family and friends supporting me!

People who don’t know me that well or just meet me randomly wouldn’t guess that I would like metal/hardcore rock music. I love it!! It is what I have grown up with and when I found out that Korn and Avenged Sevenfold were headlining I just had to go. Mayhem fest was last week at the Verizon amphitheater; this was my second Mayhem experience and it is my favorite. It was so much fun and all of the bands were really good. The weather was so perfect, only high in the 70′s. Thank you! The last Mayhem fest I went to was the Chicago one four years ago and it was SUPER hot. Phew, dodged a bullet on that.

I had a few interesting experiences. For the band Miss May I, my friends and I were up close to the stage, which I knew might have been a bad idea for small people like myself. Yeah, it was. People like to crowd surf at these things and of course they were coming in my direction. Trying to push people double or even triple your size is tough. I went down a couple of times, but got right up to push more people out of the way so they wouldn’t fall on the concrete. I was more concerned with their safety than mine. After Miss May I the next band was Suicide Silence, which I love but there was no way I was staying in that crowd. I needed a break. I am glad I was on the sideline because Ice T walked passed me! He was performing with one of the bands. I am a huge Law and Order:SVU fan so when I saw him I almost died (not really, but you know what I mean).

It was such a fun day. Totally worth my $32. I got to see on of my favorite bands (Avenged Sevenfold) and had a great time with my friends.

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!
