Winding Down

by Deanna April 30, 2013

As this semester is coming to an end, and I am stressing out because as much as exams have snuck up on me, they have clearly snuck up on my professors even more! All of my teachers are throwing multiple projects or papers at me right now, trying to make sure they cover all the […]

Catching Up

by Deanna April 17, 2013

I feel as though it has been forever since I last blogged! (When in reality it has only been a month) Ever since Spring Break I feel like I have been in hyper-drive trying to get everything done early so I am not stressed out with all my big projects right around exam time! Over […]

Looking Towards The Light Ahead

by Deanna March 19, 2013

It is always easier for me to make it through a week or two when I have something to look forward to, and luckily lately I have had things to look forward to. This past Sunday was St. Patrick’s Day and since I come from a big, Irish family I am always excited to go […]

Bon Fire

by Deanna March 13, 2013

Saturday night my friends and I went to a bonfire with a couple of our other friends. We were all just hanging out talking, and two of the guys got into a little spat and they were joking about fighting because apparently the arguing wasn’t solving anything. They were best friends so it was all […]

Taco Tuesday!

by Deanna February 27, 2013

My favorite part of every (other) week is Taco Tuesday in Ryan hall! Last semester my friends and I would spend Tuesday nights making dinner ourselves, and this semester we could not find a night that worked for all of our schedules to be able to do that again, so knowing that every other week […]

Snow Day!

by Deanna February 22, 2013

Today, Thursday February 21st, Fontbonne (and just about all of Missouri) had a snow day! Although I never have classes on Thursdays this semester, it was still great because none of my friends did either! It has been a relaxing day around campus for everyone! A lot of us caught up on homework, watched movies, […]

A Weekend Away

by Deanna February 12, 2013

This past weekend my suite mate and I went up to Maryville, MO to visit our best friend from high school, as well as her suite mate’s roommate, at their school, Northwest Missouri State University. NWMSU is much larger than Fontbonne University, but the city of Maryville is much smaller than St. Louis. Each time I go […]

So far, so good

by Deanna February 6, 2013

This semester has been a bit of an adjustment for me. For the first time in my four semesters here at Fontbonne, I do not have classes all five days of the week! I managed to get my schedule so that I only had classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I like it a lot so […]

Panic Week

by Deanna November 29, 2012

It’s that week…it comes every semester. I know it all too well. That week just before finals when ALL of your teachers are trying to cram everything in, they’re giving you final papers, presentations, and projects. And they all want it done in such a short amount of time. Panic week. I decided this blog […]

So close!

by Deanna November 26, 2012

What has seemed like the longest, most difficult semester of my life…is finally coming to an end! As my final day of Thanksgiving break is beginning, I am realizing that once I get back I only have two weeks left! That’s just crazy! Although two weeks is a short time, I do have a lot […]
