The end of the semester is here, and with that final exams, final papers, etc. But don’t worry it will be all done before you know it! Here are some quotes that will help you get through them

On Friday Fontbonne was closed due to the snow we had on Thrusday night. While most of the Fontbonne students went back to sleep after receiving the cancellation notice. I was up and awake at 5:30 am in order to go to my internship. By 6:30 am I was eating my breakfast. I decided to give myself plenty of time (50 min to be exact) to drive all the way to St. Charles. After letting my car warm up for 10 min, I started my drive to Breeze Park Lutheran Senior Living. Surprisingly the roads weren’t that bad, but people were driving carefully. I arrived at 8:15 am. Luckily, I got out of my internship at 12:50pm. The only thing we did was to decorate the main dining room with Christmas decorations. The residents loved it!!
What to do during the month of Oct-Nov? Why not visit Eckert’s Farm? You can go on a hayride, go apple picking, even make your own s’more! Just make sure you don’t leave your house without a scarf, gloves, hat, and a good jacket.

I was amazed and at the same time scared.
Fontbonne International students making S'mores for the first time!
Enjoying the hayride!
After 24 years of constantly moving and leaving behind friends. I should be okay to move back to the East Coast; but this is not the case. Everything started when I was a year old. My family moved to Japan and after 4 years we moved to Peru. Well, I don’t quite remember my Japanese friends but I did make some friends in Peru. It was hard to move to the US. In the U.S. I moved three times during my middle and high school years. Now, the story repeats again. My time in St. Louis will culminate in three weeks. Part of me is ready to go back to the East Coast and start my career as a dietitian. Part of me wants to stay a bit longer in STL. It’s ironic how a year ago I eagerly waited for the Holidays to fly home. Now, I am making plans to some day in the near future visit the friends I am leaving behind in St. Louis.
I know that it is for my own good to go back to the East Coast, to be specific the DC area. There are more job opportunities there. And if I decide to go for a PhD, there are several well-known universities such as Johns Hopkins, George Washington, Georgetown, just to name a few.
