We have come to the end of the semester. I have enjoyed sharing some of my thoughts with you, and I hope you have enjoyed reading them. I plan to blog next year because I have found that I love this job. Enjoy your summer — maybe we can get some feedback next semester. All my wishes -Free Hill
I am on a journey to finding myself and creating a new environment around me, mentally, spiritually, and physically. I have been doing very well in my academics and plan to continue to keep my grades up for the rest of the year, since I will be at Fontbonne this summer and fall semesters. I have started to work toward the goals that I have written down and seem to lack the motivation or knowledge in completing them. I cannot express enough the importance of having goals and having them written down to refer back to, especially when you’re all over the map like me. Yes, FBU community, I think that my positive mentality is giving me an optimistic attitude for positive things ahead for my future for the rest of this year.
Many people can look at the life of a Fontbonne student in different ways. I for one think that my life as a Fontbonne student means family — on and off campus. In many of my classes, there have been special bonds formed, even if it’s just for a semester. The bonds between the class help us to encourage one another with instruction and support. Take, for instance, my Public Speaking class. It is a small class, but being able to present and share a part of ourselves each week gives insight about each of us. There is some unique vibe that we all collaboratively share. When my class ends, I go home to my own family, which reminds me of why I am a Fontbonne student anyway. It is my family that I desire to share my successes and failures with because they are the most important people in my life. I am a Fontbonne student because I know that my education is worth the hard work, and I am my children’s first example in life. They watch me take care of them, maintain a household, do homework, be responsible and teach responsibility. Fontbonne is not just a part of my life, but part of my family’s life.
