Fontbonne was my only choice. I was going to have a back-up school but then I was accepted here. I love the small class sizes along with the attention I receive from teachers. Also the fact that all of the buildings are so close together makes it easy to get to each of them in the winter. I wanted to have the experience of living on campus and away from my folks, and I just wanted to do something different.
In ten years, I will be 34 with a bachelor’s degree in Professional Writing. To me, the future is a scary thought because I have no clue what I want to do. Maybe some sort of writing writing or editing. Fontbonne has already helped me open a few doors to some careers. I am going to meet with a company to discuss an internship for the spring.
But let us look at what I see for me. I want to have a beagle after graduation. I plan on owning my own land in the country with a wife and a kid or two. This just depends on the path I go down. It may end up with me still living in Missouri or not. I want to somehow help people with my degree.
Every dorm room is almost the same size here at Fontbonne. My room is a double, but I paid for a single which means it is just me. My door has my own style of just random or funny pictures. I have some Walking Dead and pro wrestling pictures on there. I have a carpet I bought to help it make it feel more like home. The walls have photos and posters posted on them. One of the most important things is my Ohio State Buckeyes Flag hanging on the way too. I use one of the desks to hold my T.V., VCR, and video game systems. I have a nightstand that has two containers as the bottom and one more as a place to hold the rest of my stuff.
There are so many places to go to in St. Louis. Here is a list with reasons why I go to certain places. These are some places that you might see me at.
1. The Loop
I go here a lot because it has a great selection of restaurants. There is a comic book store called Star Clipper on the street too. It is one of my favorite shops to pick up a graphic novel or two.
2. Forest Park
The Zoo, Art museum, and Shakespeare in the park are my main reasons for going. Art Hill is a great place to cloud and people watch, picnic, or just sit and write.
3. Scotttrade Center
A fun place to catch the latest event in town.
4. St. Ferdinand Park
A great place to walk with friends or your pet.
5. Creve Coeur Park
Another park full of trails and a lake, a great place to walk your fury four legged friend.
