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.

I have heard great things about the Dueling Pianos event from other students. I had never been to any event like this kind, but I had the night free to attend. DSAC had an inviting feeling, the lights were off except a few on the stage, chairs and tables faced the stage, and of course there was food. There were two pianos on the stage with microphones. There were maybe twenty to thirty students there, so it was a good size and they seemed to be excited for the performance. I sat with my friends and was in for a treat.

Anyone could request any song, if the pianists knew it then they played. There were rules, sing along or clap, and have fun. They played a lot of Disney and popular songs of today. I requested “Twist & Shout” by The Beatles, one of my favorite bands. They did play it and everyone sung at the chorus. There were songs that I heard of and hadn’t heard before. There was great crowd participation which made it a blast. I enjoyed going to this event, I am glad that Fontbonne hosted this event.

This is the new year

by Tim on September 11, 2014

in After College,Career Paths

It is my last semester here at Fontbonne. It is starting to kick in that I will be starting a new adventure after this. I have grown since I transferred here — about myself and about others that I care about. Here is a list of things that  I have discovered since I began here.

  • i can trust my friends
  • when you are taking a class with Dr. Sommer, you have to give a lot of details
  • teaching is not for me, but writing is for me
  • enjoy the little things in life, like walking to Walgreens or Bread Co on a nice day instead of driving
  • having hope is a good thing to have
  • teachers want to help you graduate

I began thinking about what will happen after December, which is kind of scary for me. Here is another list of things, only this is what I want to accomplish.

  • see the last The Hobbit movie
  • adopt a beagle
  • get a job
  • kick off living on my own with one of my best friends

I’m starting to realize that this is it. My last year here due to graduation in December. It is my last time for a lot of stuff. I have had a blast the past year and a half here. I’ve met some great people that i consider my family here. The experience are priceless that I will never trade or take for granted. All my hard work has gotten so far from high school.

Just Now Realizing this….

by Tim February 24, 2014

Life is tough for people, like me, who are left handed. Growing up, all the desks I sat in were right handed. I did get lucky and had a left handed desk every now and then. When I started community college, my mind was set on tables not desks being used. Guess what I saw….desks. […]

Life is a test

Pray your way and be worry free. Things rarely make sense if you force them. Just be yourself, do whatever makes you happy and don’t waste your time trying to fix things out of your control. – Jeffery Facchin I know… we all can change. – Rick Grimes (The Walking Dead) A wise man told […]
